The URL is for a listing of all Mercenary outfits. Militia units, Terrorist Cells etc that are connected to the Internet.
It has a warning about the possibility of being monitored by intelligence agencies if you visit any of the webpages (especially I would say, the one connected to Al Queda)
It also has links to pages of information about Mercenaries / Security Companies etc.
Hope it is helpful.

Yeah, and then they'll think OFP is some sort of terrorist organization as well, and we're using OFP multiplayer to plan and train for the invasions of Malden or Evron.

I hope they don't, New Malden is actually a town here in Surrey http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard3/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif

As far as involvement is concerned, let's start with the willingness to die for some cash...
money...when i joined the army i never joined to fight for my country and iam not a patroit...and i never joined for the money...i joined for 3 basic reasons: Shoot weapons, Crawl through the mud, and blow stuff up, which i find very enjoyable...i just wanted some info in the life of a merc, and possibly some info about merc organisations etc.

Being in the army becomes a whole lot less fun when TSHTF, and shooting other people is only slightly more enjoyable than getting shot at.

The money you would get would depend on.
A.) Who you are working for.
B.) The mission, and its duration.
C.) The risk factor
D.) How many others are working with you
E.) Whether you need to be paid off to shut up about what it was that you did.
F.) How good you are.
Jan 18 2002, 07:24
(G) Your ability to say "I ain't got time to bleed!"
(H) Your ability to tell everyone in any sh*t kicker bar that "I've killed a hundred men with my bare hands, but I don't like to talk about it"......
if someone could post a url to some merc pages if there are some, or email me them to rd_ghost@<hidden>
i take it no one has any information on how to get involved in mercs or website address's
if not i geuss the foriegn legion is an option.

In the French Foreign Legion, you won't even get paid well -- most people who sign up with it do so to avoid criminal prosecution elsewhere, and are just glad not to be in jail.

Previous military service is usually needed to join a mercenary outfit, unless you want / plan on spending 6 years in some African Militia unit fighting a gruesome and bloody war with no medical help whatsoever.
However, follow the link I posted last page, find one of the links that refers to a mercenary unit or person.. email them and ask..
ok thnks, i have previous millatry experience so i geuss that makes the situation a little bit betta.
Jan 21 2002, 23:23
Hmm, you're only 18 and already have previous military experience?
3 years and still serving. iam actully 19, be 20 in june

Nowdays french foreign legion doesn't hire you if you have serious criminal record like causing of death or other problems with authorities in your home country. Hiring murderes would be bad reputation for the legion which gets bad looks from ordinary frenchies already.

The main problem with being a mercenary as I see it is its a crime in many countries.
Unless you are doing bodyguard work.. or you are hired by the government...if you do any snatch and grab work, or assassination, or private army stuff, you get yourself a warrant for your arrest.
Thus, becoming a mercenary in say.. Australia.. you wouldn't be able to work in Australia, New Zealand, America, Canada, Britain..
Germany and France would be risky... Russia you would be likely to be shot...
There just isn't the freedom of the middle ages anymore.
