4-2Commando (Cdo) is a newly-established ArmA Series Clan which depend on the maturity, realism and professionalism of it's users. We take part in various Operations and Training Exercises on a regular basis - yes, even though we are a new clan, we still have things going. So, what makes us unique? We have slightly more of a training process then other clans, but this is to increase the realism in our knowledge - you don't require a microphone to join, you just need to have the will to show up, listen to what we say/type, and get on with it.
We use our own techniques on finding out infomation about how the Royal Marine Commando's do it - weather this be speaking to Ex, or current serving personel or actually researching and studing it. Those who join will get a choice to go from a Pilot in our Naval Air Fleet, to been an Anti-Tank Operator on the ground.
What does training entail?
In the majority of ArmA:Clan's training involves some time on the range, breaching buildings and listening to orders, but we have 3training stages.
Selection is a small insight on how we work, this includes some work on the firing range, a Grenade test and some basic ArmA: Survival Tips.
In Phase One, unlike real life, we divide it into Marines, and Pilots. Marines undergo further training on the ranges, breaching buildings effectively, patrols and their formations - we also threw in some CBRN Training. Within Phase 1 we have also included fastrope techniques - this involves fastroping onto a building and breaching it from the roof. One of the vital parts of Phase 1 is Beach-Assaults, we're Marines, it's what we do!
Phase Two Training is Optional, those who skip it will remain a standard Marine, or an Airtrooper. Those who go with it will be able to get further qualifications such as becoming a Pilot, a Naval Boat Operator, a Sniper, an Anti-Tank Missile Operator and more! This kind of training teaches the Recruit all they need to know about their selected qualifications.
Do you have a Dedicated Server?
No. Not every clan needs a dedicated server, some clan just need the determination to come on a few times a week, set up a server, and do training exercises and/or operations. We use various mods to make fighting AI more fun!
Yes.. Mods.. Modifications. We have 5 active mods which are required to begin training, these can be found on the Application page on our Website.

2.) Visit Our Forums (Link is at Bottom)
3.) Download our Welcome Package (3+ Documents about us)
How does the Clan work without needing Microphones?
These days, the majority of Clans require Microphones, we have invented a system which says otherwise. Using Military Terms, we have shortend them down to make typing easier, and more effective - meaning we can allow those without a microphone to join. Those who do have a microphone, and do use it, will have a far easier time.
What is the Age Limit on Joining?
We welcome anyone that can be three things; Mature, Professional, and Realistic.
Those who join, and we're in the Armed Forces will receive further ranks, and less training. A member who once served would be a great asset to any clan, able to teach the higher ranks more about a Military lifestyle - because of this, those who have served previous, or still are, will receive higher attributes.
