ARMA REFORGER, 1-7, & FAQ


ALCON,

Bohemia Interactive has announced and launched Arma Reforger today and it is already available to purchase and play now in an alpha phase:
It takes place in 1989 in a fictional Cold War scenario. The intent of this game is to basically be an alpha or bridge to Arma 4. It's a new Arma game on the new Enfusion engine that they're using to build out the final Arma 4 product. It's got a lot of quality of life upgrades, and is especially mod-friendly, which should all help with an Arma 4 launch and transition one day. Arma Reforger will give us a taste of what Arma 4 will be!

You can view BI's Road to Arma 4 presentation today for more details about Arma Reforger and the road to Arma 4!

New 7Cav Arma Reforger Tactical Realism Public Server

Coming soon! Stay tuned for details. Whenever it's up, it'll last as long as it's popular, and will be our primary recruitment tool to capitalize on the new enthusiasm for Arma Reforger.

Are we requiring Arma Reforger for membership in 1-7 CAV?

No, it will be optional. We will provide occasional content for Arma Reforger for those who elect to participate, but will not require it as a pre-requisite for membership in 1-7 at this time. We are hosting a public server for it and will run the occasional operation for it (all ops are optional), but that's all that's planned at this time. As a note, we have not closed the door to making it a requirement for membership, but it's a no for now as of Arma Reforger's launch in May 2022.

We do, however, encourage everyone to get it if they are able and play it with your fellow Cav members and on our public server (once it's up)! Have fun and enjoy it!

Will we form a...

Public Modpack Update - May 2022


ALCON,

The S3 Department and 1-7 HQ would like to announce that we have made a minor update to our:arma3:modpack for our Arma 3 Tactical Realism Server. This is because 3CB Factions was updated by its developers to have a new dependency, RHSSAF, that we did not have before. Our updated modpack has a total of 33 required and 7 optional mods. They can be downloaded from Steam or we recommend our mod preset files that can be downloaded or are attached below.

Added: RHSSAF
Removed: Free World Armory

The 7th Cavalry Auxiliary Mod is also adding Enhanced Movement: Rework and ACE Compats for RHSSAF.

Be advised that one mod in the pack, the 7th Cavalry Auxiliary Mod, may cause errors to appear when attempting to join the server. These are expected and will not prevent you from joining the server and you can just ignore them if they appear.

Note: This update goes into effect 13MAY22 @ 0600Z (2 AM Eastern)

Announcement  STACK-UP 2022 Campaign Announcement!

Hello again Brothers and Sisters!

The time has come for the 7th Cavalry to jump into the 2022 Call to Arms Campaign! Last year we managed to raise over $1500.00 so we could sent Stack-up supply drops to Veterans around the world! We have been apart of the Stack-up community since 2019, and have been inducted onto their wall of heroes for our Teams/members generous donation.

Why did we choose Stack-up?

Stack-up was created by veterans and gamers in 2015 who want to make a difference. Since we ourselves are veterans and gamers, it seems like the best initiative for us to get on the ground level of. Together as gamers we can show the world why gaming is good for people, and how it benefits our amazing veterans with their problems through this program.

TimelineAD2.jpg

What is in it for you?

Just as we support Stack-up and the Veterans around the world, so do they in turn support us. They have offered to be apart of any 7th Cavalry Charity streams, or content creations made by our members either personally, or for the Yellow and Black. If that be through Twitch streaming, Youtube content, or Pod Casts they will offer you a Media Kit, and personnel to assist you with your stream.

Stack-up also has a reward program for members or players who reach a tier in their donation journey during the Campaign. You can get all sort of goodies like T-Shirts, Water bottles, and other gaming type items as thank you for your generous donations. I have also asked if its possible to get clothing items with our names on them as rewards which they have never thought of before.

The 7th Cavalry Gaming Regiment along with Streamers, and other donators from Stack-up managed to raise over $800,000.00 in 2021! Thats a lot of cash for vets...

Leadership in 1-7

Are you interested in contributing more to the yellow and black by stepping up to be a leader? If so, here's some general suggestions and best practices that 1-7 HQ would like to share to help you on this path and start your career as a leader within 1-7!

1) Be a good follower first. The first step to being a leader in the Cav is to excel at being a trooper. Go to Section Practice (SP), be on time, sign your roll call (RC), and assist and encourage others within your section to do the same. Demonstrate a good attitude and that you can consistently be relied upon to show up to SP and sign your RC. Follow orders and start to begin the journey to be a subject matter expert in your chosen field/military occupational specialty (MOS) within the Cav. By demonstrating your mastery of being a trooper, you're ready for the next step!

2) Work to become a subject matter expert in your MOS. We all come from different backgrounds, experience, and knowledge from within the Cav, and this is a great unit to grow and learn milsim with by taking as many Arma classes as you can that are hosted by the S7 Department. Along with Section Practices, these classes will help give you a baseline knowledge so that when you attend Section Practice or an operation, you'll be able to function within the unit with the basics like battle drills. For more advanced knowledge, we also recommend for future leaders to pursue their Arma 3 Career Pathway for your chosen MOS. Demonstrating mastery of your MOS (and others) will help you earn the respect of your peers and be a valuable tool when leading others.

3) Attend Arma 3 operations! This is the best place to demonstrate what you've learned and start...
