Introduction to NATO
With a now Russian-occupied south, NATO forces have strengthened their presence in Northern Takistan to halt suspected advances from the Russians. The thought of Russian expansionism has brought concern to the NATO aligned countries, thus their presence. NATO’s goal is to keep any possible Russian expansions at bay through peaceful means while also keeping democracy in Northern Takistan. While in Northern Takistan, treat the civilians with respect so that we may garner their favoured attention. We may be a military, but we also act as the police of Northern Takistan while we rebuild their government.

A) Kill, Detaining and Vehicle rules
NATO may only kill civilians in self defense.
NATO are always required to try to detain civs. It is NATO’s job to detain, not kill, criminals.
All NATO are required to carry a stun pistol in their inventory.

            Attack helicopters and jets may be used on any air target with given permission from a CO.

                        One warning per 15 seconds.

Radio Protocol
Radio channels are as listed in the table below:
Long range/short range compatible?
Standard NATO Frequency
Set by highest ranking online
Air Space Frequency
Long Range only
No banter over radio. The radio is used for tactical and communication purposes ONLY.
When the server starts, the highest ranking available will set a frequency as the Standard NATO Channel. This is to prevent any unwarranted access to our channels by criminal civilians or the Russians.
If the frequency is compromised, the highest ranking at the time will set a new frequency
Once a new frequency is established, the highest ranking at the time will post the frequency on map
Air Space Frequency is only to be used by Air Traffic Control, CO, or any NATO aircraft in the air. This frequency is used to contact civilian aircraft.
Keep your vehicle locked at all times.
You can NOT just taze a civilian with no reason, treat them like any other gun.
Remember to document all evidence with screenshots or video.
Follow Blufor rules.
The ratio of NATO members to civilians should be no more than 1-2. If there are more NATO members than civilians, please switch.
Have two or more people per vehicle if possible to ensure maximum efficiency and personnel safety.
Act smart with vehicle and weapon choices.
In the event of needing extended leave (meaning being gone for a week or more) please inform NATO Command to place you on LOA, and inform us of how long.
Rocket Launchers are to be used only on armoured or armed vehicle targets.
If one gang member is wanted for major crimes (Murder, Trafficking, robbery,) the entire gang is to be placed on the wanted list. This does not apply to small crimes like speeding.
LMGs or MMGs not allowed for standard patrol but are allowed to be kept in vehicles. Both, however, may be out at any checkpoint.
**Failure to follow any and all of these rules and regulations may result in your removal**
