Charlie Company's mission is to provide an environment of camaraderie and respect for all future and current members to gather together. Our number one drive is to build community, closely seconded by our love for armored vehicles with large caliber cannons. We host several events weekly to build the community around us and grow the friendships started here. We welcome anyone both in and outside of our company to come join in the fun.

19K - Armor Crewman

As an Armor Crewman, you’ll work as part of a team to operate tanks and assault vehicles and fire weapons to destroy enemy positions. You’ll need to be ready to operate various armored chassis in all positions. These positions include Driver, Gunner, and Tank Commander (TC). The Driver is responsible for maneuvering the vehicle and operating the bow gun, if equipped. The Gunner is responsible for round selection and engagement of targets designated by the TC. The TC is in command of the vehicle, and is responsible for issuing orders to crewmen within their vehicle, prioritizing target assignments, coordinating with other units, and executing orders given by the Commander.

Armor is a mobile support force capable of running operations on its own on a limited scale. Armor are primarily a support force engaged with infantry used to take and hold a key area from the enemy or to deny them access to such by utilizing combined arms warfare. Armor is to be used in close order with Infantry.
