Clover was founded in 2015, with roots in an ArmA 2 milsim group which ran from 2012-2015. We are a group of adults who enjoy playing ArmA 3 weekly, and we do so with a private military company (PMC) theme. We encourage realism, but not hardcore milsim. This promotes a casual, friendly atmosphere free of silly out of game military pretense bullshit while still allowing us to have an immersive experience while playing. We require members to be adults over the age of 21, and we are almost always accepting applications. Our group is small, and doesn't often actively recruit.
Clover Security runs campaigns that consist of a mission a week, as part of a larger story which runs over the course of a few months in any given theater of operations. We typically make the first "take" the story stick, so if we fail, we fail, and if we succeed, we succeed. Each mission can alter the course of the campaign. We've won some, we've lost some, but they've all been a blast. Check out the details below, if you're interested.
This campaign takes place on the South Pacific island pair called Pulau. The islands are owned by the international scientific research corporation called The Lazarus Initiative. Clover has contracted with the Initiative for a number of their facilities as a first response to any security related incidents that their local security element was unable to handle, and when the Pulau station drops offline, they call for help. Due to proximity to Chinese airspace, the Initiative is banned from the use of aircraft over their islands, so we're going in mostly dark.
Ardent Peacekeeper takes place in 2021 in Mogadishu, Somalia. The insurgent group Al-Shabaab has regained momentum in the area. Mogadishu is inundated with Al-Shabaab fighters, and Somalian National Army (SNA) attempts to expunge them are going poorly. Half of the SNA seem willing to look the other way. The US Department of State hires on Clover Security to provide security assistance for the newly reinstated US Embassy in Mogadishu. The secondary task is to assist the CIA station chief embedded at the embassy in intelligence gathering missions against Al-Shabaab.
In this campaign, Clover takes on the role of an Airborne squad landing in France just prior to the D-Day invasion. The squad struggles to deal with harrowing situation after situation, reuniting, finding allies to work with, disrupting German movements and actions, and ultimately participating in a battle over the town of Neaville.
In Swift Reckoning, Clover is hired by the Turkish government to conduct a police action on their prison island Imrali. Revolutionaries have started a prisoner uprising on the island, but the Turks have been spared international embarassment by a comms blackout. They task Clover to re-capture or eliminate all prisoners, and extract civilians.
Clover is hired by the State Department to assist with embassy security on a ravaged Lingor, as well as to augment resistance forces and help them to overthrow the dictatorial El Presidente. As tensions heat up on the island, Clover also runs into their old friend, ICOM...
In Operation Stable Guardian, Clover is brought into the Beketov region of Ukraine, to assist with rebuilding efforts, security for the fledgling local and regional government, and to provide assistance to IDAP relief forces. But as usual, things do not go according to plans.
At the conclusion of the NATO-RF war, Germany hires multiple international private military companies to augment security and act as guard forces to eradicate ethnic Russian insurgents as well as to help maintain order while the Bundeswehr and the Gendarmerie get back on their feet. Clover is dispatched to the Taunus region.
The International Consortium of Miners (ICOM) hires Clover to head to a remote Pacific island, Tanoa, to discover why ICOM-Tanoa has gone silent. The investigation begins to turn sour when organized gangsters wreak havoc on the section and their equipment, and communications are jammed. And when Clover encounters a CSAT special forces unit operating on the island - and discovers that ICOM is involved in things far more insidious than merely greedy exploitation of natives.
The Sovereign State of Takistan (SST), a movement for a free Takistan, uses U.S. military aid funds to hire Clover Security to augment SST forces and help them to fight and win a war of attrition against CSAT, with the goal to make it cost more than CSAT will spend on a small, poor, backwater, and force their withdrawal from the region.
In the war-torn country of Isla Duala, the southern state, Afrene, gathers funding and hires Clover Security to provide training, security, and, if necessary, offensive assets as a last-ditch attempt to stop Molatian aggression, before they are overrun altogether.
With the NATO-RF war having finally kicked off, the President leaves European embassies intact, save for those in enemy-occupied countries, and authorizes the State Department to hire unprecedented amounts of private military contractors to defend embassy grounds or personnel and bolster regional NATO operations. Clover is dispatched to the small island nation of Altis, to assist with embassy security.
We ask that people be over 21 to apply, be at least often free for our weekly scheduled operation, and own ArmA 3 and the Apex DLC. Our team members have jobs, families, and hobbies, and we are all very busy people. We understand the demands of life and do not have mandatory attendance numbers. Just be here when you can! We also don't have designated positions other than team leader roles and medics. Other roles are sorted out by interests and by the requirements of the particular mission at hand.
