    General Duties Inspector EOI Name: Kristian Davis Callsign: S03M Assignment: General Duties Why do you deserve a promotion?: In the many months of being in a supervisor role within GD, I developed into a better and more mature person, I believe my strengths, experiences and knowledge in leadership and tactics for GD/Operations has proven me as a capable commander and advisor. Being an easily approachable and active Senior Sergeant has allowed me the opportunity to teach and assist the lower ranks with their queries and point them in the right direction while also dishing out constructive criticism or minor wake-up calls. My attitude towards the APD and it's officers has always been one with respect and unquestionable dedication, with that being said, I'm always up for the challenge that could not only benefit myself but those around me so I take this opportunity to apply for the future command team to assist those who I serve with. Who would recommend you for a promotion?: Nuggy, Smith, Miller, Fedora, Aza, Mudman, Weaver, Andrew, Luxus, Metallic, Carreck, Sparrow and whoever else likes this post. Note: By placing this expression of interest you aren't entitled to the rank Inspector and it can be denied as well as issued a non-apply period of no less than 1 week. Don't bother anyone about your EOI, if you do it will be denied.

    Inspector Expression of Interest Note: By placing this expression of interest you are not entitled to the rank Inspector and it can be denied as well as issued a non-apply period of no less than 1 week. Do not bother anyone about your EOI, if you do it will be denied. Name: Sir_Nuggy Callsign: [S10M] Assignment: Academy (Primary) General Duties (Secondary) Why do you deserve a promotion? (50 Words min): I believe actions speak louder than words and through out my time as an Altis Police Department pleb I have consistently shown my dedication towards not only Academy but General Duties. My enthusiasm, friendly and humorous attitude towards all APD Officers, civilians and even rebels at times is definitely a huge talking point and possibly a chance to show that the APD has great officers within. Academy has been my main division for quite some time, the amount of work displayed currently plastered throughout all the training rooms is really a statement of my dedication and hard work. The Academy has definitely seen a major turn around since previous dictato- I mean leaders and I'm proud to say that I am a part of that change (hopefully for the better). I believe my position with the APD is definitely on the rise and far from over, hopefully together as command we can make the APD more professional and friendly force to be apart of (obviously being a hard ass at times is necessary). I believe we're on our way to make the APD the best it's been in quite a while and I'm incredibly excited to see what's going to happen next. For all my lower ranks out there I'm excited to be working with you and don't forget when at a bank remember to show your ass! (Hunters boys) Who would recommend you for a promotion? Miller, MoonMan, Smokey, James, Carreck, Luxus, Sparrow, Mrmudman, Prophecy, Wasabi, Daniel Hussein, Deadpool, Nightmare, Fraz, Metallic, Hamish, Tyler, Nicholai, Dallas, Roddy, Sean, Smith, Andrew, Kristian, Ash, Jewbacca, aza1212, Jacko and anyone who likes this post.

Do not bother anyone about your EOI, if you do it will be denied. Name: Smith Callsign: S09M Assignment: Academy Supervisor Why do you deserve a promotion? (50 Words min) Over the past couple of months as a senior Sargent I have worked very hard in academy and on GD to help those needing assistance and guiding those junior ranks that wish to plot a path to a more senior position, I have dedicated myself to my work ever since I joined Academy and the APD, I have worked hard alongside my peers to help through situations and through situations on GD, I deserve this promotion because I believe I would be a valuable asset to the command team and to the academy team due to my dedication and my over all performance since the day I joined, this is just my opinion I'm sure you all have other views but hopefully ill be working alongside you in the command team soon!

    Player of the Week 28/2/2021 Your Player of the Week chosen by the I&A staff team is @Glory501 Congratulations @Glory501: – pilot and also likes to play in the field. Great skills to be able to diverse between the two, so his perspective of what ground troops rely and require from a pilot is definitely an advantage. A pilot that does his utmost to get you to you AO, with a good overall result in succeeding. Continues to provide a fantastic job, gets involved in the discussions in the TS channel and group chat and willing to help anyone who needs it. Honourable Mentions: Clockie: – Continues to come to the attention of players and staff with his overall approach to the game. Solid playing style as a medic and overall a good all-rounder in carrying explosive as well as his excellent dental skills in managing to extract gold and add to his financial portfolio. Definitely a medic that can be relied on and more importantly a player who is always there willing to do what he can and help those who need it. Did I mention the 19 towers he bought down this week, rumour has it CSAT are seriously considering revoking their cheap imported steel and buying BHP. Styx: – Fast approaching a Veteran player on the IA server, well respected and knows exactly what needs to be done to reach an objective. Definitely a force to be reckoned with plays as a medic and is always leading by example and getting in-capped players up and back into the fight. Gets on very well with players both new an old. Has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to strategic approaches and the way to approach the objectives to gain the upper hand and along the way leave a trail of CSAT that tried to defy his tasks. @Appu:– Still holding his ground and playing well on the server, early morning and sometimes comes on again late into the evening. Plays a multiple of roles in the front line and targets all the objectives which include the mortar pit and AA. Has had several honourable mentions over the past few weeks, very well deserved and is still on the radar as a strong candidate to take out the top position. Cookies: – Generally plays as a medic and a pilot but as of late has been flouting his abilities in a tank and doing a fairly good job overall. Steep learning curve but is getting ahead inch by inch. Communicates well in game with his fellow Blufor team. Keep up the effort Cookies your doing a great job. On behalf of Straya Gaming Staff and of course all its players, our congratulations again to the Player of The Week and those receiving an Honourable Mention.

    Sergeant Expression of Interest Name: LuXus6 Callsign: K11W Assignment: GD/General Duty's Training Completed By: 04/02/2021 List all Recruit Inductions you have done: Konvict, Timothy, Nahla, Kayne, Pyramid head Why do you deserve a promotion? (50 Words min) I believe that I deserve a promotion to become more of a leader in the APD, My influence was a Man called Fissionable. I heard story's that Fissionable was a great leader as he got to Assistant commissioner at a very young age and thus I wanted to be a Strong and mature leader as Fissionable did, I believe I am a very capable CO and keep everyone in order. I Often take CO and do Inductions when possible. I take CO not only on GD but also when banks are hit. I feel like the APD is missing a few mid ranked people so i would like to fill this gap. This is why I think I should become a Sergeant in the APD. Who would recommend you for a promotion? Dallas, Roddy, Carrick, Prophecy, Sparrow, Nicholai, Smokey, Wasabi, Aiden, Fedora, Jewbaca, Kristian Davis

    The HEAT part of that statement is untrue, unfortunately. Laser-Guided (And Guided) are just HE shells with extra sauce, being the guided element. I'm sure the extra shell types would be nice, I don't know if they'll be monumental in changing how Mortar Gunner plays but there'll be some more fun to be had. (From my brief testing in the editor, you're limited to 8 Laser guided shells. This seems to be the case for all the shells that aren't HE (Smoke, Flares etc.).) Mortar gunner works best with a dedicated spotter, no need to wait for some muppet to piss their pants and finally call for support when they're overwhelmed. Unfortunately, finding such a spotter can be hard, as most players want to get their own kills. Calling in CAS (and other means of support) perhaps acts more of an ace in the hole when they're up against a superior enemy (i.e an MBT or APC). JTAC seems to fit the role perfectly for this, especially if they're observing from a safe distance. (However, in my experience, when a JTAC is on, mortar gunner is empty ) Mortar gunner is in a peculiar place. The role is capable of so much but is limited by the coordination needed to properly use it to its full potential. A lone mortar gunner calling for fire requests seems to be the norm for the role at the moment. Throwing more tools for the mortar gunner to use isn't gonna solve the human issue. Perhaps if we increase its visible presence in the side channel, more people will use it. I'm thinking of something like a kill report/announcement in the side channel after a large multi-kill. If players see that mortar gunner is effective, they'll be more likely to call in fire missions (hopefully). This isn't a problem of a lack of killing potential, but rather the inability to harness it effectively.

    The life of a tanker is definitely a difficult one, distance to travel, fuel requirements and the constant need for resupply; not to mention the near on immediate destruction from a stray missile. Tanking can be a lot of fun especially with other members. Good luck in your tanking adventures!

    This game is worthless to me without the challenge. The challenge is why I drive kilometers each server block. It is my challenge and I need no praise or glory for it. I need no sympathy for failing it. Upon server reset it begins and the variables that will stop me from completing this challenge are uncountable and have no pattern to learn from. The challenge in writing sounds simple enough but it is different for every person for everyone holds themselves to their own standards. Justify your use of the Tank in a server where you are completely unnecessary, obsolete, and old tool. There is an abundance of talent in the straya server. Master pilots, master HAT troops, master snipers, master rifleman, master everything is in this server, and your all making me work my ass off every server reset to justify it. yes u are all variables in the way of my challenge and I find myself in a desperate competition against CAS and all other support vehicles. I wouldn't have it any other way though, it wouldn't be fun if it was easy. My tank will be the tip of the spear and the soldiers behind me will be the base and together we will plunge ourselves through the heart of the frontlines. If you your petty like me and keep checking the score board you may have thought this was about tank kills. Its part of it yes {a tank should prioritize the killing of other tanks} but that is not good enough for me. I will be the bane of enemy vehicles and ill do it while being the wall between our medics and hell. You will find me near the wounded not because I want to be your hero, no I am your slave driver and I will drive u relentlessly through the AO until it is done so I can get to killing the next fleet of armored vehicles. This is my challenge and though I have received praise from the server, my challenge is far from over. It may never be over for at the end the end of the game I look at the scoreboard and say "i could of done better"

    Metallic's Sergeant EOI Name: Metallic Callsign: K14W Assignment: Primary - Academy Senior Aviation Officer | Secondary - Detective Training Completed by: AceWinchester List all Recruit Inductions you have done: vince1, Lenny, Forged Lyze, Amber, Carthew, Caresinten, Wiseoldman, Varius Benson, SNAZZY_BOI69, Coco_Nuts, 1sgPerkins, Skynet, Shorty, Leon Woods, SGT Salt, Main User, Jack.H, XBunj, SmO, Waynekerr, St peterburg, CHUM, Goya, Seriga23, PanSu, sun, IceyTundra & rip, 28 inductions in total. Why do you deserve a promotion?: I am fully ready to undertake leadership roles and regularly try to advance elements of the APD in every way. I always try my best to propose new ideas and concepts as well as produce new content for the APD like new skins/PD. When I can, I would take the position of CO and I am easily capable to take control of a situation to increase the odds of the APD's endurance in any scenario. I endeavor that police power becomes within public representation and presentation of our numbers. When market becomes west Detroit every night, I do not order people to run from it, but to use proper strategies control and ensure the lives of innocent civilians. I have always tried my best to improve the experience, especially for newer recruits, whenever that’s checking if they are okay, bored or happily occupied with a task which incredibly increases their chance of returning and perhaps becoming a full time officer. More recently, I’ve taken initiative as an academy officer in ALL aspects of Academy, ensuring that all trainings are going smooth and delivering friendly but constructive feedback to the trainer after their session is over. I’m also the first one to mark inductions down I’ve also advanced my skills into detective and stepped up as now a senior aviation officer with the intention of implementing and thinking of better ways to operate as a team. The time has come, I’ve proved I’m eligible for my promotion. Metallic for Sergeant!!!!

Name: Dallas Callsign: K24W Assignment: General Duties Training Completed By: JotJTX List all Recruit Inductions you have done: Taxepus, JaseT, Jaco C Why do you deserve a promotion? (50 Words min): Well, first of all, I don't think I deserve the rank of Sergeant like its an entitlement, I believe I would succeed in the position of Sergeant and show lower ranks/higher ranks because I have experienced being a CO for General Duties, CO'd a few major/minor robberies. I see myself as well as lower ranks see myself as an approachable person for lower ranks to seek myself for help or knowledge, I enjoy helping out others in the APD, I feel as I would be a more valuable asset to the APD as I higher in the ranks and learn new things and more skills. I enjoy the roleplay and everything about being apart of the APD and I would like to gain Sergeant to further myself in the APD on Strayagaming. Who would recommend you for a promotion?

    I think regular safe zone blocks should be removed and keep offline safe zone if we're keeping the no offline raiding rule keeping the regular safe zones allows someone to be untouchable 24/7

    I think this is the coolest feature in Arma 3 DEV build, the ability to reshape the terrain. This would be very useful to make caves and rivers, or a runway extending into the ocean.

    The enchanted movement mod is probably one of the most used mods in arma it allows for extremely effective use of terrain and obstacles. it lets you climb objects which would otherwise be impossible to scale this is awesome because it allows infantry greater tactical movement and better cover which will inevitably make people enjoy the server more! The big plus with adding this mod is that it won’t reduce the server pop at all because it is a client side mod. It is also extremely easy to add to the server as all that would need to be changed is allowing people to join with the mod another mod that is worth consideration is DUI (squad radar). But I’ll stick to one mod at a time and won’t push my luck

    That's true enough Kerry. But with Downloads from the browser etc available & it being a tiny file, I doubt anyone would have an issue getting it. I think some might not even notice getting it. Alternatively, when they see the strange floaty men they'd ask "What's causing that?" & find out how to get it. I am a bit biased I guess as I have wanted this on the server for ages.

    Player of the Week 14/2/2021 Your Player of the Week chosen by the I&A staff team is Lewes Congratulations. Lewes – Been a constant player on the server as a pilot getting troops where they need to go and generally a good success rate. Also playing in the UAV role lasing enemy armour in the AO and calling in CAS to engage enemy assets. Considering he has only been with Straya I&A a short time has definitely left his mark and continues to learn, improve and engage with the other pilots and players. A player with a good attitude, Polite and willing to help where he can. Engages well with players and Staff. Top stuff Lewes, good to have you on board. Honourable Mentions: The Tank Guy – As the name suggests is a Tanky has been extremely helpful to the advancing ground troops with his armour support in both advancing on the frontline and more importantly in the middle of a heated defend. Does a fantastic job and is always up there doing whatever he can to disrupt CSAT by reducing their fleet of armour and cutting them off at the knees. Considering the effort to drive to some of the most distant locations, doesn’t complain, drives and gets the job done as best as he can with the assets he has. Keep up the support and great to have a player who knows the role well. @Appu– Another solid week for Appu, as a medic, sniper and plays both roles well. Engages with other players well and always prepared to assist them with whatever he can do. Still likes to carry explosive and targets enemy assets, towers, vehicles whatever is needed to even the playing field and giving the BluFor team an edge. Keep it up Appu your achievements and efforts are not going un-noticed. Venom – Another player who enjoys the armour side of playing driving a Marshal. Very handy with a laser designator and was seen to lase two AA’s, and two CSAT tanks from a hill 1.3 km away and successfully was able to call in and achieve 4 direct hits from a T140 Friendly tank. Very impressive and all done within the first 15 minutes of the AO commencing. Nicely done especially for the ground troops and pilots having to slog their way through knowing they have a better chance of gaining the upper hand without being slaughtered in the first wave. Stephen – Known for his abilities as a Tanky achieving some good solid results in ironside however has of late traded the tracks for rotors and is flying the helis and dropping of troops, cargo and providing an air service where needed. A fast learner knowing that success is based on being able to fly low at times to avoid those AA and still be able to get your troops in within striking range of CSAT. Continues to improve and engages well with other players and pilots and providing advice and assistance to new players if required. On behalf of Straya Gaming Staff and of course all its players, well done to the Player of The Week and those receiving an Honourable Mention.

(50 Words min): Honestly, I don't, this is an expression of interest for the future when I am. I write this as I am taking some time from playing as much as I do and it's allowing me to gain insight into whether or not the full time APD role is for me, at this time I believe it is; the APD is by far the direction I have choosen to take and I intend to focus my efforts on improving the General Duties department, I currently aspire to reach a Command position and hope that a Senior Sergeant role will teach me the skills needed to develop myself and the APD.
