"Forze Armate di Capraia" Shaping Alternative History

Recommended Posts

Maybe Av8? So it can land anywhere in case the airfield is destroyed? It is a small island and only haves very few airfields, so if the airstrip gets destroyed, you couldn't get any jets into the air or down. Also a Su33 or F4? http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=9471 http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=9610

For the Helicopters maybe a Lynx as a light and a CH53 as a heavy lifter? http://www.armedassault.info/index.php?game=1&cat=addons&id=1454 or a NH90 http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=5761 To make things more interesting from the generic us or ru equipment all over the place. Could also include the An2 as a transport plane. Due to the small size of the island you wouldn't really need any big planes.

An army/military for an island of this size might not have any fighter planes at all, if they do, a harrier isn't a bad choice. Expensive but not wholly unrealistic.

As for helis, well I could only picture them having small ones, no CH53's or NH-90's.

Why wouldn't they have bigger helis like the NH90? They come in handy when there's some heavy lifting to be done and trucks and planes don't exactly cut it. A lot of small nations have bigger helis such as the Mi17/8 or NH90. If this fictional country is able to buy themselfs harriers or jets in general then they would get some proper heavy lifting helis aswell considering how uneven the island terrain is and delivering equipment or supplies to hard reach locations would be best with a heli.

I kinda agree with Slatts on the helicopters, CH53's just wouldn't fit and for NH90 in real life one would of cost *cough* 30-35 million Euros...

For the fighter jet, at least some type will be needed I do believe so :) or at least any jet.

However speaking about "expensive" the F-4E in reality ain't, did my research and I found out it only would of cost $2.4 million and that only could of be back in the 1958 so now buying some from US wouldnt pretty much cost a lot :P

But what I would of love to see more, is something Italian like AMX, made by Brazil and Italy and I am sure it would of fit the best...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMX_International_AMX

But not sure if anyone has even made ones.

And once again when coming to jets, only one type would of be taken, there wouldnt be much of a space for more.

Just wanted to say if anyone would like to help me out with the mod let me know :) I wish to get some help making this mod more epic ;)

I would love if anyone could help me out creating config.cpp or "merging" needed config's to get vilas's mod working!

Sadly I couldn't find any AMX made for ArmA nor ArmA 2 despite the search, only possible jet either one to fit the realism, Mirage or F-4E

I agree that the f-5 would be a good choice. Also the A-29 Super Tucano would be a great choice for CAS. When it comes to helo's, maybe a combination of UH-1H, Gazelle and Puma. C-27J Spartan would be a good choice for transport. Just my 2 cents...

I will try to ask for permission for the F-5 because I as well think it would of fit more :) as for the A-29 Super Tucano, C-27J, well only if they would of be already made :)

Meanwhile despite all the nerves died trying to get this work I finally managed to get Unimog config and so on done :) I actually thought of Gazelle and UH-1H!

Here I present Vilas's Unimog and Man 630 :)

I couldn't bother putting a camo like the m1117 has 1, because it would of look ugly, green is enough, 2 the camo would of be inside and outside.

The infantry camo seems quite blurry to me, judging from the pictures. A higher resolution might help here, and in case you purposely created blurry edges in the camo pattern, you should consider a fine textile pattern (e.g. rip-stop) put over it, also in the normal map. That eliminated the low-res feeling when looked at from very close. Example:

It is blurry indeed but not much, most likely its because digital like camo and its stretched out a bit, nothing I can do about it really and the camo still fits them perfectly.

Sounds good! Looking forward it :)

All suggestions are of addons already made

A-29 Super Tucano - Lingor's Druglord army

C-27J is in the Italian mod. (Pedagne Mod)

As for armour, maybe a mix of Italian, Spanish and French? Seems to be plenty of choices in these already released mods. Might be a good idea to look into other fictional armies like Lingor, Duala and Tigeria for further ideas. As for logistical support, I think it's great you have included the Unimog. A lot of mods don't always include logistical or medical support. Would it be possible to have a wheeled APC ambulance like VAB or BMR in addition to the Unimog also? And maybe include a medevac version of UH-1H?

The PC-9/Super Tucano isn't exactly well made..I should know..I never really got it up to Arma standards from OFP.

Looks a lot better than quite a lot of other CAS type aircraft out there, and would work well as a placeholder until a a better version comes out :)

It isn't high up on my list of things to do, anything Irish related has really been put behind.

Got the UH1 done for Capraian's :)

I will work on medevac version as well!

I have as well asked RKSL Studios for Lynx permission :)

EDIT: Medevac ver, just as UH-1H but simply with a medevac patch, for ACE I will put medical supplies in it later on.

My plan for air is rather simple and realistic for FAC, Aeronautica Militare di Capraia - AMC will have and be in charge of one type jet, reconnaissance plane, air cavalry, attack aircraft (plane), cargo planes and other possible air related vehicles

The Capraian Government does not see a point of spending loads of money on attack helicopters like hind's or cobra's, they will be replaced by air cavalry, Ministry of Defense plans for those are British Lynx's or American Venom's, most of staff of the ministry of defense are in favor of Venom's.

Unless the military will want a attack helicopter, petition can be signed by the personnel.

So simple thing, do you guys think AMC should have a attack helicopter or air cavalry aka helis like UH Venom?

If you already have Hueys, it seems logical to use them for attack purposes, too. The maintenance is easier if you have only one model to care for.

On the other hand, instead of putting in another of those boring well-known Hueys with boring well-known 70mm FFARs, you could go for a more interesting solution: Operation Frenchpoint has a SuperPuma with a door-mounted 20mm machine cannon ("OFrP_Puma_CE_Pirate"). Ask them if you can use it, overhaul the texture and you're done. This older, very widely used chopper from European origin would fit well in your story of a mediterranean island with limited budget.

That is actually a great idea! I've send a PM with permission request :) 20mm... Sounds awesome :D

I will be only taking the 20mm gun helicopter because AMC already has UH-1H as transport but for sake of actual realism let me know if you perhaps would of like to see Puma beside UH-1H ;P

About the F-5 Jet, permission would of be given but the method of it getting it into FAC is beyond my little brain nut so I had to back away from it, however I've asked permission for Mirage 3 :)

This is why I would love to have someone with great config skills to help me out >.<

As well about tanks, T-55AM2 will be a second MBT bought off from Serbia and Poland, thanks to R0adki11 for his T-55AM2 which he will send to me soon, 1st MBT is M60A3 will be up with pictures soon!

And finally got the M60A3, dear me this tank is a pain in the arse to texture xD

arma2oa_2013_01_15_00_07_29_019.png

Same camo type as on chopper, however M1117 will have to stay with its camo because if you seen older pictures they looked "shite" and that is because of the camo layouts couldn't fit with the model for some reason, the current one it has fit the vehicle perfectly.

I would of try putting some dirt/mud on the texture but couldn't as I couldn't find any dirt/mud layer what so ever >.<

Brigata Forze Speciali - Special Warfare Brigade is Capraian's first and newly created Special Forces created by President Giovanni Andreacchi as a response to Kingdom of Takistan's consistent actions.

BFS UNITS are being re-done, PLEASE check Page 6.

BFS uses Italian Multiland ((Thanks to antoineflemming who provided it)) tried my best not to have it pixelated but the picture resolution wasnt big but even so it looks fine :)

As you can see he has "CHDKZ" model BUT no worries he won't be only one, I have picked few other model's from OPFOR that will actually be used as BFS member's why you ask?

Its actually simple, unique I guess, I do not want to put 100% 23rd Century Special Forces uniform's and guns to a special forces team which belongs to a small nation, at the moment I managed by all the stress and so on do this guy I will finish off other's later on :)

Camo looks good on him either way!

EDIT: And for the night I actually managed to finish BFS Commander.

BFS UNITS are being re-done, PLEASE check Page 6.

Only if the bottom cloth wouldn't be shaped like that it would of look perfect but can't blame me xd blame the cloth xD

Black Holster looks way cooler than brown :P

After finishing the BFS I will get to fixing errors with it e.g. voice and a small cfgfaction error :P

BFS will be equipped with FAMAS G2's silenced and non silenced version's, Scout's, Grenadiers ((M4A1 M203)) and Commander's will be given M4A1's ((ACE_SOC_M4A1)) with no sights for non ACE just normal M4.

Reason why I want to give scouts and commander's a M4 is because there is no suitable FAMAS for them, since they are commander's and scouts they need lighter weapon and best idea came to me is M4 and for Grenadier's well FAMAS pack has no FAMAS with grenade launcher sadly :'( so M4 with grenade launcher will have to work, EITHER WAY if you think theres something better beside M4's for them let me know!

Uhh those Russian's vest sure takes long to finish >.< Either way here are two more BFS units, Officer, Riflemen and Medic ((Riflemen and Medic use the same model)) to come is new commander, I decided to use the American Officer model and a Demolition Specialist, unless I get more into my mind xD

About the officer, same as the Russian Commander, It is not my fault it is like that but the model...

mmmh..Special Warfare Brigade is better to translate in "Brigata Forze Speciali" or "Comando Operativo Forze Speciali" or other...than "Guerra Brigata Speciale". Surely Guerra Brigata Speciale sounds wrong

Thank you! :) That what I needed!

Grateful that you fixed it, do not want to destroy this wonderful language :D

Two more units!

The new looking commander, way better than the Russian model, this one is the USMC, and a Demolition Specialist, aka Ins_Soldier_1, if anyone knows how to remove his backpack in config.cpp when theres nothing about it in there :|

gonna add two more units aka Scout and Sniper and BFS is done, well technically still got portraits to do :P

And a last update for the Brigata Forze Speciali, all units done, here is full team + Scout unit pictures and as well now the Scout and Commander will use G36C's however in the pic I messed up and gave them G36K's.

Sniper uses M40A3.

Scout:

Full Team

BFS UNITS are being re-done, PLEASE check Page 6.

Sadly no idea how to get rid of the static backpack's from some units because its BIS done but I know its possible by someway ofc not editing the model but no luck finding... Either way I'm waiting for further permissions to add stuff and T-55AM2 will be up soon.

Hope you like it and please once again give me suggestions!

EDIT: I will try to make the M60A3 look a bit better than now but that shall be done later on.
