LDD Kyllikki 10 Years
The Local Defence Detachment Kyllikki was founded ten years ago today.

The event was celebrated appropriately when the detachment returned to its roots with a game of Operation Flashpoint—enhanced, of course, with the original FDF mod.

Over the years LDD Kyllikki has seen well over a hundred members in her ranks, from old to young, from a variety of professions and occupations, and from all over Finland. Many have left over time and others have come in their stead. Indeed, the unequalled camaraderie and the strong esprit de corps of the detachment remains not the same as it was a decade ago—but has been steadily strengthened by the passing years. The LDDK of 2011 is a capable unit of outstanding members.

The tenth-year anniversary was thoroughly celebrated last weekend in a squad meeting that was the biggest yet. Also the new detachment colours were unveiled.

Alik Night was promoted to Kersantti (kers).
Korpr Karko was promoted to Alikersantti (alik).
Korpr Stellar was promoted to Alikersantti (alik).
Stm Jarger was promoted to Korpraali (korpr).

Korpr Shuko was awarded with Pro Kyllikki (PK). Korpr Shuko has striven to study the editorial side of the game and helped the whole detachment to realise its potential. This, added to his exemplary service, has earned him the Pro Kyllikki medal.

In addition, Blake, Psykoisi, Wolfskin, Jafarin, Ukkapukka, Kuokkanen, Hammer, Broileri, Night, Murmeli, Mammoth, Goeth, Kuik, Kegetys, Karko, Stellar, Charlie Frank, CZ, Eizei, Jarger, Maako, Shuko, Tahvo, Elli, Rölli, Conrad, Efe, Peter North and Raunhofer were awarded with Talkootyön Ansiomitali (TA) for participating.

The 10th-year celebrations will continue.

FDF Mod Released
FDF Mod has been released and is now in use in LDDK's servers.

The 10th Year Anniversary Celebrations Begin
LDD Kyllikki started the celebrations of her 10th year anniversary on Sunday evening with a friendly team vs. team match. Reinforced by Finnish and Catalonian players, LDDK fought against the combined force of Folk and MARSOC in a series of A&D missions. The current server player limit of 64 was reached, marking a new record for the biggest adversarial game ever played on LDDK's servers. The Local Defence Detachment wishes to express her gratitude for everyone who participated and especially the members of Folk and MARSOC.

The celebrations will continue through the coming weeks.
Also Gladd has been promoted to Sotamies and assigned to the 2nd Squad, where he will be serving as a rifleman. Congratulations!
Choke has been promoted to Sotamies and assigned to the 2nd Squad as a Medic. Congratulations!
New Recruit
Choke has joined the detachment. Welcome!
New year full of celebration
As LDD Kyllikki prepares to celebrate its 10th birthday on the 30th of March, we will be hosting various events throughout the year. Some of those are reserved for members of the detachment only, but some will be open to the public.

Confirmed rumours talk of campaign-themed co-op missions, theme nights at our Arma 2 and re-opened Operation Flashpoint servers, a 10-year anniversary meeting somewhere in Finland where current and old members are welcome, and much more. Persistent rumours even insist on Finnish Defence Forces mod team publishing their work for Arma 2.
