Slide ROLLING Large Scale Tank Battles for Arma 3 THUNDER ARMA EVENTS JOIN OUR DISCORD CHANNEL ROLLING THUNDER COMING SOON EVENTS

Tanks • Teamwork • Simulation • Fun • Large-Scale

Since 2010, Rolling Thunder is an ArmA series (firstly Arma 2, now Arma 3) PVP (player vs player) event in which large scale tank battles are simulated. The RT battles are standalone events and take place occasionally. For each battle there are new registrations. The Rolling Thunder participants vary from armor gameplay newcomers to professional tank combat simulation gamers all with the aim to have tactical, teamwork orientated and enjoyable battles in a well organized large scale environment.

Player slots

For both companies the following player slots are by default available (with some variations between each battle):
• 3 Tank Platoons (3 tanks each) + a Company Commander Element
• 6x /4x AT team members (may vary from battle to battle)
• 6x Recon Team members
• 1x Helicopter pilot and Co-pilot (present in some battles)
• 3x Engineer (logistical & service Team)
• other assetts may be pesent in some battles

Vehicle pool

For both companies the following vehicles are available:
• 10x Main battle tank (types are different per battle)
• 2x /3x Transport vehicle for AT team and Recon team  (Jeeps, Quads)
• 1x Transport / Reconnaissance helicopter (present in some battles)
• other assetts may be present in some battles

Technical aspects

• Thermal Imaging  is disabled (to keep it challenging)
• Viewdistance is by default automatically set at 4000 meters for all players (but may deviate per battle. If so this will be announced in the relative battle forum thread)
• 3rd personview is disabled to enhance the simulation experience
• Vehicle and player respawn activated

Respawn features

The respawn feature is configured so that it allows a continuous flow of gameplay, but also gives room for units to make critical moves / strikes in times their opponent is recovering. That way you gain terrain and if all well and continued, you will be able to seize and hold your objective sectors. Respawn delays are not very long.
