Canadian Armed Forces Modification ARMA III

Recommended Posts

Is this mod intended to be an expansion mod like the FFAA mod having the Spanish Army? Will we see any Canadian ships, tanks, and planes?

---------- Post added at 06:50 ---------- Previous post was at 06:46 ----------

Is the intent of the mod to create a realistic representation Canada's militery?

Sorry folks been busy as all hell recently.

Here's a quick insight into the next update:

-CH-146 Griffon Helicopter in at least 2 variants including MED EVAC

-Camouflaged weapons (C8, C9) in Woodland, Arid, Arctic

-New vest textures for the Chest Rig

-RCAF flight suits and gear

-Across the board config tweaks and fixes (updates to latest version of A3)

-Permission has been given for "Hidden Identities" it will become a required addon.

-SF Baseball Cap with Flag (forwards and backwards)

There's more in the works for the release, thats just the confirmed content.

Curious if there will be one with a side mounted pylon for a 30mm? Also, will the Griffon have a nice custom sound?

Here's some shots of the Griffon in it's current state. It's about 90% ready for first release.

The Griffon will come in 2 configurations at first:

1. CH-146 (SF) A variant designed for use with small JTF2 or CSOR teams of 6. Seating is removed and relocated to the skids. (it's a little tight) Featured in Screens

2. CH-146 Griffon This one seats 8 in the main compartment. It has two different guns on the doors for testing purposes at this time.

Down the road you will see:

MEDEVAC - Complete with animated doors and stretcher seats for wounded

ESCORT - designed to be used with the WIP CH-147 Chinook, this will not carry any passengers and will carry a heavier armament.

TRANSPORT - Stripped of door guns but capable of sitting 12 troops will fully animated doors.

Hopefully the griffon wouldn't have the same problem with the ONS one where you could see through it when dust was present. Great work guys!

Not sure what your plan is regarding tanks, but the AAF are getting a very looking Leopard 2 looking tank in an upcoming update, could possibly Re-texture that to look Canadian.

Looks great, but did you modify a stryker and call it a LAV?? Just curious I've spent a few hours in each ;)

The LAV III was originally modeled by Young Eagle for ONS in A2. Due to a series of bugs and issues ONS choose not to release it publicly. The model it's self is original.

no the USMC LAV 25 is not the same as the LAV III, the CAF LAV is more like the stryker body, the CAF Coyote however is very similar to the LAV 25.

Also we are re-texturing the AAF MRAP as a place holder for the TAPV. it will give a decent middle ground between Mech and Light infantry. the RG-31 will likely not make it in as it is being decommissioned by the CAF.

Sorry for the delay between updates. Right now I am re-writing a lot of the configs to be fully compatible with the new ALIVE release.

Screens and info coming soon.

TAPV:

Do you plan to improve the C7/8 textures? As they are quite blurry especially on the scope as I assume they are ported from Arma 2? Other than that the LAV is looking great!

Can you send a screenshot of this? Also, it depends on your quality settings.

I will try and get the screens, I have textures on very high and I think they are not very "Blurry" but they are not as sharp or high res as other Arma 3 textures I think so thats why I was asking if you were going to improve the textures.

I get what you mean, don't worry about the screens. Yea the texture is from A2. Unfortunately I don't have a higher-rez version of it. I'll take a look and see what I can do about sharpening up the textures, but no promises.
