British CVR(T) Family

Recommended Posts

Introduction

Hello everyone.

This will be be the WIP thread for the addon I am going to put together with some help from a few people. As my group has a Formation Reconnaissance element to it, I noticed a distinct lack of up-to-date modern British reconnaissance vehicles that we could use in operations and missions. So my plan is quite simple, I want to bring some of the modern upgraded vehicles from the CVR(T) family into ArmA 2.

My outlined plan for the mod is as follows

Scimitar (FV107)

  • With new upgraded optics
  • With Hull and Turret RPG cage
  • With new ECM kit

  • Add another vehicle which is the Mk2 variant of the Scimitar, which was upgraded by BAE (Information here)

Spartan (FV103)

  • With hull RPG cage
  • With new ECM kit

Scimitar Alpha

Included in this pbo;

  • Temperate
    • Basic Scimitar
    • Scimitar with slat armour
    • Scimitar with slat armour and camo nets

    [*]Desert

    • Basic Scimitar
    • Scimitar with slat armour
    • Scimitar with slat armour and camo nets

Yes it is! The main reason for the Spartan being included is because the Scimitar Mk2 uses the Spartan hull, So I figured it wouldn't be much more hassle just making it a vehicle on it's own.

Sweet! I hate to request other versions when you're only really starting, but I'd love to see things like the Sultan and Striker.

Dunno why, but I just love the CVR(T) family..maybe cause I got a ride in a Scorpion :p

I suppose I could see what could be done about adding a Sultan, but I wouldn't hold your breath for it, the exterior model wouldn't be too big of a deal, its more the interior that would cause problems.

Don't do them if you don't want to ;) Just me being me :p

EDIT: If you need reference photos best ask da12thmonkey, he seems to have reference photos of everything used in the UK forces

There is an entire Mk2 walkaround posted on the plain military forums, you'll have to register to see it, but it should do nicely

@Messiah, I can't seem to find the Mk2 pictures on that website, I've checked in the CVR(t) section which I assume where it would be, and couldn't find it.. Do you happen to have a link to it?

EDIT - I found it!

I will try to make two variants, a more 'conventional' one, and one kitted out for COIN ops.

So after some testing with proxies, getting them attached to vehicles etc, we felt it was time to model the proper slat armour that is on the scimitar.

We tried to make this as accurate as possible, it is still WIP.

After some thought I think it's best to make 3 variants of the Scimitar in both colour schemes.

These will be as follows;

  • Temperate
    • basic Scimitar
    • Scimitar with slat armour
    • Scimitar with slat armour and cam nets

    [*]Desert

    • basic Scimitar
    • Scimitar with slat armour and ecm kit
    • Scimitar with slat armour, ecm kit and cam nets

I still have a few things to add onto the vehicle before it is done but below you can see some of the current progress pictures.

Here is a quick 'Done' and 'To Do' list to show you what progress has been made

  • Done
    • Basic Scimitar/Scimitar with slat armour/Scimitar with slat armour and cam nets
    • Two colour schemes, temperate and desert
    • Two 'Vehicleclass' - CVRT (temperate) / CVRT (desert)
    • Changed weapon/ammo/magazine cfgs
    • Added ACE FCS functionality
    • Added ACRE Bowman mod functionality

    [*]To Do

    • UV map ECM kit for Desert variants
    • Add any extra 'bits and bobs'

The addon will come with a vanilla compatible version, with extra configs that users can add or remove to add ACE and ACRE, functionality!
