I'm not really a huge fan of it, but i'd like to hear your ideas first, like why are they here, when did they come, why is it a military unit/group? Stuff like that.

I worked alongside UKSF in the past and I was a part of SFOR, both were British military groups to a degree. The RP was good but for it to work you need a solid backstory as to why you are in Chernarus, it needs to make sense and it is best if you bring something new to the table.

You would require a solid and sound reason for them to be here in South Zagoria, I have some ideas that if you are interested in hearing feel free to shoot a PM my way.

As long as you can make it fit in the lore, I have no problems with it. Go for it!

Like many have said, if you can fit your group within the realism of the lore and have it be portrayed well, then I have no problem with it. Just carefully read through the lore and try to have a solid reason for why the group would be in South Zagoria. 

Good luck! Definitely try to talk to the lore masters about stuff like that too!

As long as you can find a way to have a valid reason for your British Military being in Chernarus, I don't have an issue with it. Though my question would be what would your goals be? What would make you unique other then being British ? The idea is too vague to give a legitimate feedback too. I don't imagine anyone having an issue with your group so long as you have reason for them being here, so the purpose of this thread confuses me. If you want feedback on a potential group idea, post it in Group Ideas :P

According to the Arma 2 story...I believe...if not mistaken that they were British troops in Takistan, which is just east of Chernarus. I think you could make it work...maybe...a Private British Military group? Geologically and politically it makes sense why there would be British troops near/in Chernarus.

honestly in my opinion don't make a group based on one country, yes there are a lot of UK people but with the rise of the amount of merc/military groups there already is not to mention the nationalist groups.

good luck tho, if you want to make a military group that's up to you, but it's quite over rated imo. I kinda want to see some new original ideas tbh

There are alot of millitary based groups out there. And like frozen said, be ready to get robbed by chernarussians. But if you can make the millitary Group a Real good Group I say go for it.

Pls no supersoldiers :D

Thanks for the feedback. As for your concerns with the lore my idea was that they came over to South Zagoria to advise and if necessary assist the deployed UN forces, but as the shit hit the fan the were scattered, that's why its taken so long for them to be an actual group.

I personally prefer less militarized groups, and more civilian forces. As far as it being specifically British, I don't see a point in making a distinction regarding race or nationality. I mean, it's not like they are the chernarussian nationalists, in their own country. If it's something like British nationalists that only stick together with British soldiers and civilians it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense in a foreign country. Besides, I feel like if anything militaristic groups would recruit military trained individuals regardless of their background, and fall into a category of mercenaries as opposed to any official foreign military unit after a while. 

 What I'm getting at is I don't think it would make sense for a British military unit comprised only of British ethnicity to be that established in a foreign country where I can only assume there wouldn't be a large number of British soldiers in the first place. And if they aren't only comprised of British soldiers, and actually have gone to the length of recruiting non-British soldiers into their ranks since the infection, I don't see the point in calling them a "British" military unit, sounds more like mercenaries or soldiers of fortune to me. If it were me, I probably wouldn't focus on a foreign ethnicity as the basis for the group, and find something outside of that to establish them as something unique. 

 I mean no offense by it, and I'm interested to see more details of your idea. I could be completely wrong in my views of it thus far, and if so I apologize.

I'd just like to point out that the amount of english players and charaters with a millatry history is quite high so if they could be encoraged to re-enlist. that would make up some numbers.

How is it going to fit into the Lore?

I dont think there where any British armed forces in Chernarus except the few who where in the UN.

Or am i compleatly wrong here?

So long as the group fits into the lore well and produces good RP - I don't see why not.

We actually only have one military group, that being USAF. We do have militant groups but there is a huge difference.

+1 to the idea Wild Dog

I think if you have a good back story to this group aswell as a what it is that the group aim to do i can't see why this would not make a good group.

I as well like the idea and would probably join myself if possible on my character from New Zealand.

Yeah same here, I saw a post of yours about a casino group. I wouldn't mind being apart of that with a different character I have in mind, mafia like and such. I also had an idea a while ago. What if someone made a group with a "bigger than all of us" sort of surprise. Of course it can't be bigger than the apocalypse because that would go against the lore, but it could develop in game. For example: Maybe some group captures people and gives them away to another group, but little did that group know those captured people were undercover to take down the group within yadda yadda. Now that's a bigger than them sort of plan but if someone could pull off something bigger than all of us, all of the people surviving that'd be interesting.
