A private military company (PMC) is a private company providing armed combat or security services for financial gain. PMCs refer to their staff as "security contractors" or "private military contractors". In December 2006, there were estimated to be at least 100,000 contractors working directly for the United States Department of Defense. Today, that number is more than tenfold – globally.
In 2014 a group of individuals decided that they were tired of the poor command and structure of the official armed forces groups in the ArmA community. Today VIKING PMC is one of the most well-known units out there.
The unit specializes in many things regarding armed engagements. Thanks to the international and diverse background of its members, there is a contractor for every job. Operations that are conducted in the unit are of a global scale. Viking operators are prepared to fight in any condition at any time.
The units name and culture have roots deep in the north due to the original members being of Scandinavian descent. Our mantra is “To Valhall”, our motto is “First in, last out” and our logo depicts Fenrir; the beast that slayed Odin during Ragnarok.
It is not uncommon for Vikings to assist them in their current battles when they need the best money can buy. Joint-operations is something that has always been welcomed; it has been proven to play a part of the unit’s success and recognition in the ArmA community.
VIKING PMC is a community for those who look to operate with more flexibility and want to be part of a wolf pack.
