The Mannerheim Line

--- New on the Public Server ---
A mission from Evrik and Apollo

Location: Podagorsk, near the Finland - Russia border.
Date: 10th July 2016

With the revival of the post-Soviet Russian Federation, the former super-power is once again flexing its military muscle in a display of strength. It has expanded its sphere of influence over many of the breakaway countries that once formed the USSR.

Podagorsk is one such place. This narrow strip of land juts out into the Gulf of Finland just to the west of St. Petersburg.

Long contested with the Soviets, in the 1920's and 30's Finland built the Mannerheim Line, a narrow defensive zone across the Isthmus, comprised of bunkers, trenches and other field fortifications.

During WWII the Mannerheim Line held the Red Army at bay for several months, but eventually Podogorsk fell under Soviet control. Since then it has switched hands several times, but is now designated a de-militarised zone by the United Nations.

Reports of Russian troops crossing the border have been received in the West.


A British force under the NATO banner has set up an FOB on the southern airfield to confront this expeditionary force, supported by a US naval taskforce anchored off-shore to prevent further Russian reinforcements arriving by sea.

In recent days, this FOB has been heavily shelled by artillery, suggesting the Russians are moving ever further south.

Is it already too late to stop them crossing the Mannerheim Line once again?

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to everyone at 3CB!

2014 has brought us another amazing year of gaming and banter, it's been bloody good gaming with you all! To everyone that makes the community what it is - recruits, marines, donators, recruitment managers, operations organisers, modders, public server managers, mission makers, training instructors, YouTube channel managers - thank you. You make 3CB what it is (I know it sounds cliche, but there's really no better way of putting it).

We've improved and grown so much since the start of 2014, it's amazing to see how far we've come.

Looking forward to next year!

Operation Low Horizon

Forum: News


While sweeping through the first town Bravo and Charlie Sections were engaged in a vicious 20 minute fire-fight, got surrounded and took multiple casualties, before being relieved and reinforced by Alpha and Delta. BLUFOR managed to push on and destroy an MBT in their primary objective zone, with the destruction of stockpiles of supplies and drugs.

Although the anti-drug operation, Operation Low Horizon, was halted temporarily when booby traps in vehicles were detonated after the destruction of the supplies, BLUFOR have regrouped in a Troop Harbour ready to continue the Operation in due course.
