Attack Near Zalesie
19.05.2020
On Sunday, LDDK conducted operations near the Livonian village of Zalesie. The enemy had stolen essential military equipment, including AT missile systems and wrist-held temporal devices, which had to be retrieved at all costs. During the two-hour mission the platoon, comprising 18 members, destroyed the enemy with minimum casualties; unfortunately, the watches are yet to be retrieved.

LDD Kyllikki Going Strong for 19 Years
30.03.2020
On this day, Local Defence Detachment Kyllikki has stood guard for 19 years. Conducting weekly operations for the better part of the year, most recently in the Weferlingen region in Germany and Livonia in the Baltics, and holding several annual platoon meetings all around the country, LDDK remains the oldest active Arma detachment of its size in Finland.



But as with most guard duties, there is no end in sight, and LDDK will continue to keep watch and, when needed, engage the enemy in the virtual battlefields of the world to the unforeseeable future.
The 10th Pakkaskyllikki in Kannus
19.02.2020
Pakkaskyllikki, the traditional winter meeting of LDDK, was held from 13 February to 16 February. A nearly annual meeting, it has been organized since 2008.

While the officers were not present, ylik HaBa and ylik Scottz led the participants through the traditional disciplines of the detachment.



The iconic Kahvi-Baari of Kannus was once again conquered by friendly members of the detachment, and several entertaining billiard matches were played.

Charlie Frank, Haba, Scottz, Arto, Sakinz, Ukka, Strat, Nouty, PeteDad, and Shuko were awarded Talkootyön ansiomitali for participating.



Strengthening the Team in 2020
14.01.2020


LDD Kyllikki has begun its 19th year by organising an internal course for non-commissioned officer training with the aim of improving leadership and tactical skills of those members who have the task of or may at times find themselves leading a squad or a platoon.

The course is the fourth one to be arranged, earlier NCO courses having been held in 2004, 2009 and 2013–2014. As a relatively small detachment, LDDK upholds high standards in leadership among other things to best serve all members and keep the experience enjoyable.




Concerning all members and others who play on our server, recent improvements in ARMA 3 ACE medical system will guarantee that there is plenty to learn and to do in the coming weeks. The learning curve is steep but rewarding, given that it will reflect directly on casualties.



LDDK is recruiting. If you are a Finnish player of at the very least 18 years of age and are interested in cooperative missions in a tight-knit group of primarily Finnish Defence Forces reservists, read more here.
