From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Combat Arms is a collective name in a system of administrative military reference to those troops within national armed forces which participate in direct tactical land combat. In general they include the Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillery units.[1]

In some countries, notably the British Army, the artillery units are categorised as Combat Support Arms. Some armies such as the United States Army, classify combat engineers as a combat arm also, while armoured troops constitute a combat arm in name although many have histories derived from cavalry units.[2] This is also true for the combat aviation units in many armed forces throughout the World.

Artillery is included as a combat arm primarily based on the history of employing cannons in close combat, and later in the anti-tank role until the advent of anti-tank guided missiles. The inclusion of special forces in some armed forces as a separate combat arm is often doctrinal because the troops of special forces units are essentially specialized infantry, often with historical links to ordinary light infantry units.

In the United States Army the following branches are considered Combat Arms:

  • Infantry
  • Armor (including Armored Cavalry)
  • Field Artillery
  • Air Defense Artillery
  • Army Aviation (e.g., Attack Helicopter and Air Cavalry units)
  • Special Forces
  • Combat Engineer

Combat Arms is an online computer game developed by Doobic Studios and published by Nexon Korea, Nexon America and Nexon Europe. Combat Arms registered over 2 million players in its first year of service. It is client-based, which means that you must download the software in order to play the game. Combat Arms is completely free to register and play.

Gameplay is fairly simple. Join a game room in which the objective is mostly to kill other players, unless the game mode consists of a mission. After a set goal is reached, all participants in the game are rewarded with EXP (which is accumulated to rank up) and GP (which is the in-game currency that can be used to buy other guns and equipment).
