NAK Anniversary

After much anticipation and analysis, we're excited to announce the winners of the "My NAK Squad" Twitter contest! On behalf NAK Staff, thank you again to all the participants who submitted their work. Before we start with the winners we would like to have some Honorable Mentions "Medevac from Cu Mi, Vietnam 1968 (Colorized)" by Frosbite "Hunting" by NoBrakes and "Push on Town" by Ghost. Without further ado the winners: 1st place goes to Domau for "Waiting for a lift". A very nice recreation of a Vietnam War picture by an unknown photographer, the use of noir filter gives the screenshot a nice touch. 2nd place goes to Ghost for "Crash Landing".This picture was taken live during a Zeus Operation. The perfect combination of light & timing. The blinding effect that the player's flashlight gives to the camera is perfect. Congratulations to all the winners! If you were chosen, you will be notified soon by NAK Staff via Twitter or TeamSpeak to receive your prizes. Once again we would like to thank everyone for your participation in this contest!

What is the origin of the name NAK, and what does it mean today? Through the years, people have been perplexed over a simple, yet unanswered question to many. A question that keeps players awake at night. To celebrate NAK’s 5th Anniversary we decided to finally put to rest one of the biggest mysteries that has spread throughout the NAK community. No… it’s not if Claws & Vile are the same person, we are talking about “What does NAK stand for?” The origin of NAK’s name dates back to 2015 when Claws01 started the community with several other players. According to Claws, the acronym N.A.K. stands for “Nasty Art Killers”. When he came up with the name Claws was trying to describe the difference between a bad shooter and a good shooter. Anyone can play Arma but it takes skill, practice, and finesse to become a good shooter, and that makes being a good shooter an art. So players in the NAK community are Nasty Art Killers, skilled in the art of killing, at least in Arma 3. Across the years the meaning got lost & confused, so much that a lot of people thought NAK stood for “Nasty Ark Killers” because Ark came out in 2015 and was a competitor in the gaming community vying for the same player base. Now that the NAK Community has been around for 5 years, we thought it was time for a change. We decided to ask you the NAK Squad community “What do you think NAK means today?” Go ahead and post in the comments a new meaning for the acronym NAK.

NAK Command is proud to announce a second server update for NAK's 5th Anniversary of Arma 3. The biggest additional is the ability to recruit AI, to help you complete the mission.  You can use AI to support you while playing as infantry, drive a vehicle while you take a gunner or commander seat, or act as your gunner in a helicopter. Another big change is the ability to request a static mortar drop.  No longer do you have to drive to the AO with your mortar supplies.  Now you can halo to your selected location and request a mortar supply drop which comes with 3 mortar bipods and 20 mortar tubes for rearming.

To celebrate our 5th Anniversary we decided to interview the creator of NAK Squad himself. This interview will give you an insight into the background of NAK Squad. We would like to introduce you to Claws01. - What drove you to create NAK Squad? - What is your main role as the owner of NAK Squad? - What was your first interaction with ArmA? - Why did you decide to use the name NAK? - What is your favorite weapon/loadout to use? - Did you think/intend for NAK Squad to turn out the way it is today? - Tell us what is your favorite moment in NAK Squad in these 5 years? - So there has been some speculation about your identity, is it true that you and VileAce are the same person?
