Welcome to the ArmAwiki
The ArmAwiki is a wiki on military and military-related topics with focus on military-simulation in and around the Operation Flashpoint/Armed Assault as well as the Steel Beasts Armored Vehicle Simulation series. ArmAwiki provides a hub for training documents, standard operating procedures as well as general military and operational knowledge relevant to our ArmA mil-sim environment. Almost every article features extensive references and further reading links.
The wiki is currently at a very early development stage and currently features 122 articles. As it is the nature of a wiki, content is always subject to addition, expansion and revision.

Radio Communications are all communications - or conveyance of information - carried out using any type or kind of radiotelephone that transmits signals through free space by electromagnetic waves with frequencies significantly below visible light, in the radio frequency range, from about 3 kHz to 300 GHz. Radio communications are the primary and in ArmA more or less the only operational means to communicate beyond the hearing range.
Artillery Fire Commands (sometimes Fire Orders) are used to give artillery and mortar units all the information necessary to start, conduct, and cease firing. Typically the fire commands are sent by a Fire Direction (FDC) or Platoon Operations Center (POC) to the firing units. In units using modern battery computer systems, fire commands are sent digitally from the computer to a display at the gun. In units without a digital link, firing commands must be sent via radio or voice.
An Operation Order (OPORD) is a directive, usually formal, issued by a commander to subordinate commanders for the purpose of effecting the coordinated execution of an operation.
All operation orders contain a description of the military situation, state a mission, state how the mission is to be achieved, how the operation plan is to be executed and how the execution is supported by supporting assets, logistics and command and control systems.
A SITREP or Situation Report is a report sent through radio or digital message by an element to another higher or lower element to inform of its situation. There are multiple versions and alterations of the SITREP that are used in various forces and at various levels. It normally provides a detailed overview over the units entire situation including location, activity, combat effectiveness, disposition, intelligence and reconaissance, logistics, communications and status of personnel.
