Invasion 1944 V3.0

Recommended Posts

This is great news. I44 is awesome. I will be looking into the dynamic warfare with arma 3, hopefully I can set up a "Living world" server. Random patrols, smart AI that uses buildings etc. I imagine it would be neat to have a server that is changing. Maybe loosely like WW2 Online..

Paratroopers!

I know it's been done to death, but I wanna bring back my ol' 502nd PIR. It'd be nice to see some eye-ties too.

Also, what about being able to stand up in a C47, or is that out of the question? Mainly for realism purposes with the whole jump procedure. Have you guys thought about submarines at all?

Given the era, if they do paratroopers, it's probably 82nd AB, or Fallschirmjager. Yeah, I was hoping that since they teamed with Hell in the Pacific, I hope we at least get mini-subs, let alone U-boats, Gato class, even cargo ships or destroyers. Probably not the Bismarck though. :P

Don't forget the British 1st Airborne Division. :)

Well, and gliders. 17th AB, I think, too? 6th AB for Britain as well, don't know that much. But I'm dead certain of the 82nd in sicily, and Fallschirmjager in Crete.

And Paramarines, though from what I hear they never actually got to jump, and just became like elite marines.

What would be kinda neat is pipe in my ww2 radio station, it plays all era radio programs, news , etc etc. I got all of it from the silent hunter forums freeware. It may work in here. Bring a more real world feel..

Basically a more realistic server I guess. Not just spawn and spray...

Hey Everyone,

what I would love to see is new British Airborne textures what I really miss is that the NCO doesnt have a ( parachute regiment > or any of the other regiments ) on the red barret and another thing I miss is to see a officer that isn't wearing a smock but just his 37 pattern BD ( Battle Dress ) with insignas : the red parachute regiment shoulder title was used in Italy the Blue shoulder title in 1944-45 the Jump wing is only on the right arm

I also have some info for the invasion 44 guys these are the operations were the 1st AB div was part of

Operation Biting

Operation Freshman ( Italy )

Operation Turkey Buzzard( Italy )

Operation Ladbroke ( Italy )

Operation Fustian ( Italy )

Operation Slapstick ( Italy )

Battle of Arnhem ( the Netherlands '44 )

Operation Doomsday (Norway '45 )

also what I would love to see is the Welbike ( it's a British 100cc motorcycle that was used by the airborne, the steer could be folded down and also the saddle could fold down so that it could go into a metal cilinder ( Container ) and could be dropped and be used by the Royal Corps of Signals to set up radio stations

also one thing that MUST be changed the AB jeeps here is some of the information from my dad's book named "British Airborne Jeeps"

the jeeps most of the time had the reserve wheel on the bumber and had amo chests on the front also there were hook attached to the right side to put a Lee-enfield ( SMLE no4 MkI ) or Bren Mk I in it another Airborne modification is that there were 4 jerry cans 2 between the driver and gunner and 1 behind the drivers seat and 1 behind the gunner's seat. Also not every jeep had a Vickers 'K' ( VGO ) these were modifications used by the SAS and recce ( recconasaince ) here is a list with the basic modifications that EVERY Jeep Had :

Steering wheel - to get the jeep into a Horsa glider this was made detachable using a wingnut and the horn button relocated to the dashboard, usually to the left of the blackout switch.

Front bumper - the left side had to be cut shorter to the point where it is attached to the chassis brackets also in order to get the vehicle into a Horsa. In practice, the other side was also shortened to maintain a symmetrical appearance. The remaining bumper was then reinforced and a towing hook added for pushing or towing.

Handles and footboard - the side and rear handles were removed together with the right footboard for easier manoeuvrability into a Horsa.

Spade and pickaxe brackets - also removed from the side for the same reason. Two straps were fixed to the front bumper which, together with a clamp for the axe head, were used instead.

Jerrycan holder - this was moved from the rear of the vehicle to between the two front seats. A further two holders were mounted behind the front seats.

Spare wheel - this was fastened between the bumper and radiator grille to prevent shrapnel damage to the radiator. For the Reconnaissance Squadron a Vickers "K" gun mount was also added at the upper part of the dashboard although the gun was not always carried.

Gun clips - in addition to the usual clip above the dashboard a gun clip for a Lee Enfield was mounted on the hood in front of the driver and a further one was mounted at the right mud guard.

Carriers - the following were added for various uses according to unit.

• A rectangular frame on top of the hood for various items including ammunition.

• Bumper & grille mounted straps to carry ammo boxes.

• Bumper mounted cable drum holders

• Pannier carrier mounted at the rear of the vehicle.

Battery carriers (radio vehicles) were mounted on top of each front mud guard, in front of the passenger seat and at the rear of the vehicle which included an aerial mounting.

Lighting - as with most British operated jeeps the black-out driving light on the left front mudguard was removed and the side lights in the grill were replaced with smaller units mounted on each mudguard. This ensured that they complied with British traffic regulations and were not concealed behind equipment carried on the front of the vehicle. The two standard headlamps were usually replaced by a single British style blackout headlight on the driver's side. and a yellow sign on the right side that most of the time had a 3 on it

Trailers - lightweight trailers were developed and built for the Airborne Forces mostly by REME (Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers). These were a disposable item often with a plywood body, little or no suspension and sometimes even used motorcycle wheels. They were used to carry ammunition, supplies or specialised equipment.

Paint & Markings - All British Airborne jeeps were green with disruptive camouflage. The W.D. registration number (census number) which began with an 'M' was hand painted or stencilled on the side of the bonnet and the rear of the vehicle in pale blue.

The division sign, Bellerophone riding Pegasus, was displayed on the front and rear. Tactical signs used by units were sometimes painted on the bumpers or square plates.

For air recognition the big white five pointed star in a circle was painted on the bonnet usually with a smaller white star on each side of the jeep above the rear side reflector.

there also were some other modifications that NOT every jeep had like a 22. radio set or a stretcher bearer.

one more tip for the british jeep I personally think that 5 men is a little too less for a AIRBORNE jeep because most of the time there were around 7 in 1! jeep :

1 in the drivers seat

1 in the gunners seat

1 on the seat in the back

2 on the back tool set ( the 2 things in the back of the jeep that is next to the back seat )

2 on the front of the tool set facing out of the jeep with their legs just hanging out of the jeep

here are some more pics :

JeepFront.JPG

JeepRear.JPG

JeepPassengerSide.JPG

and at last the c47 was also used by the RAF there were a few changes ( instead of the star there was the RAF sign ( a red dot with a blue FAT circle around it and a thin yellow circle around it alos the black white stripes were used for the FIRST tiem in Normandy so they didnt had them in Italy the stripes were used because after italy was liberated some of the US AA gunners didn't know if there were british bombers comming so they shot them and so did the british sometimes because they didn't know when theAmericans were bombing so thats why C47 ( and any other allie dplane has 3 white stripes with 2 black stripes in it

the looked like this without the stirpes in italy : http://www.albionk12.org/HS/VetransProject/Walsh/C-47.jpg

here is a little way too remind about the british airborne the >>6th<< airborne landed in Normandy on >>6<< June 1944 ( they also landed in Norway

the 1 st Ab landed in Italy and Hholland and Norway and Germany

Reminds me of the tiny Harley Davidsons that were also dropped, with sidecar, for the airborne. I'm sure those airdrop capsules that held a few weapons and ammo would be useful for airborne servers, as an item to keep in line historically.

I know from personally seeing one that the 101st ABD was dropped in with some Cushman scooters. There's a nice one in far West Texas at an air museum.

Is there a chance to see CUSTOM behaviors as a module maybe? Its rather annoying to see your men charge, but as soon as they see an enemy they go into the annoying "combat" mode, they go prone, shoot, look, move. It ruins the effect of having a wave of enemies charge at you/charge the enemy (We also have the new ragdolls) Also, will we see Navy ships and submarines (Hence the new water combat systems) and what kind of era will you focus on, i would not mind Africa....Sicily, crete kind of areas.

The way the units hold weapons in A3 is... well how do I put this. too modern? They hold it tight to their body, and hip fire is not there. Is it just me or do troops now hold their weapons differently now then they did back in WWII?

I would think they hold them different because of the type of weapons they are using, and the types of tactics

they employ while using them in given situations.

That probaly isn't going to happen the CUshman wasn't used until SEPTEMBER 1944 the Welbike was used from 1940 ( desert, Enland by the Home GUard forces ) until 1947 after that the corgie was used ( it's a lot like the welbike only it has different petrol tanks and some other modifications

and they didn't had sidecars they had trailers but if you were lucky enough to find on eof the hundred misdropped cushmans it probaly was broken because they were too heavy and had too small parachutes

the only thing that upset me with i44 on arma 2 was that the german side. i could not understand any unit names in the editor??????? i.e. "fjhrjv22xpwk" - panzer.

could we make it all english :D then i would actually use the german side a lot more

Yep, that's right I think. Of course, it helps that because English is a Germanic language, in spite of Latin borrowings, some words are similar, making it easier to guess the meanings. Then you have words like those, which leave you clueless.

so will it be english this time? to save this confusion because not everyone is German and almost everyone can read English as you can tell on the forums

I'm English and I prefer it with the German names.

Besides, 'Armoured Fighting Vehicle 4 Type G' sounds dull.
