==Who are we?======Do you have a list of rules?====
In short, we're a collection of ArmA 3 players whose passionate affair with cooperative combined-arms gameplay and realism is still a better love story than Twilight. Without getting too wordy we love realism, we love roleplay, we love simulation and we're powerful tech wizards who gather all sorts of game data, firing it at you in interesting, colourful ways!
But there are some things we don't love. We don't love telling people when to play or taking everything so seriously we forget to have fun. You know what we're talking about, and we really don't love doing things the way other ArmA groups do them.Yes, Basically we're militarized snowflakes.
==Do you have a list of rules?==
WeUNITAF members are all adults and we expect every member to use common sense and follow the code of conduct.
Please see our [[ https://unitedtaskforce.net/training/sop/basic-infantry/unit-policy | General unit polices and rules ]] for more information.
==How many OPS do I need to attend?======What are the activity requirements?====
HoweverYou can attend as many you wantor as little operations as you like, the minimum is 1 deployment per month, there is no maximum. With our unique approach you won't be penalised for not coming to an OPoperation you did not opt into. It's a totally flexible system that allows you to slot when you are free. However your activity status will be managed by your COC.COC and will fall into the following;
- Regular (Deployed last 30 days)
- Reserve (Deployed 30-60 days)
- Inactive (Deployed 60+ days)
As UNITAF is an opt-in, session based group, if you opt-in and do not attend, you will be given a no-show mark against your dossier for each offence. Racking up too many no-shows takes positions away from other players, and we will be addressedtake action against this type of violation. We appreciate it if you click “Can’t attend” if you know that you cannot.

We even have the UTC clock at the top right of the website if you need to be sure.
