Russian Naval Infantry

Description:

A retexture of some A3 assets to make them look like contemporary Russian Naval Infantry.

Infantry comes with two different camos (Flora and DigiFlora), and vehicles come in two different painting schemes (Camo and Green).

There are also some static weapons, backpacks, pre-organized groups for mission making.

I was bored of having the Iranians From Outer Space as Opfor so i went on and made my own units complete with vehicles.

This is not a 100% accurate reproduction but i feel it's more immersive than playing as/against CSAT.

There is a showcase mission under Scenarios.

It's my very first addon and i had to speed up the release because i had schedules to meet.

If you experience any problems please let me know.

Addon is signed, inside the folder you can find the bikey too.

Known Problems:

Ifrit/Punisher MRAP textures are not working correctly due to some issues with hiddenselection, but can be solved only by BIS.

Nice release, Chairborne! It would be nice if you could make an optional config equiping your naval units with Sudden´s Ak-74M or Ak-105/107 (it feels odd to see russian troops using an Iranian rifle KH2002) =)

Cheers!

I'm actually waiting for a "stand alone" quality addon like RobertHammer's M4 pack to throw in the trashcan the Katiba and get some serious rifles.

A few days ago i saw a nice video featuring an AK12 so i guess i'll just have to be patient. :rolleyes:

LOL! You and a whole lot of other people, I imagine. Nice work! I look forward to giving them a try!

PS I agree with swapping out the weapons.

Nice work chairborne.

When reskinning charachter models, use the nohq and the blue AS layer as a multiply and overlay layer in PS.

It mades the uniforms retain a little depth.

True story.

I'll try that, thanks. :)

I'm kind of a noob at PS, i had to remake the uniforms several times before getting the pattern anywhere near what i wanted and i'm still not really convinced.

Maybe when BIS releases some more assets i'll get back on them and do some tweaks.

Thanks for the advice though.

I thought those T-100's were a collumn of T-72's for a second, until I looked at a closer screenshot. Impressed with the vehicle skins m8, good job. Infantry could use a little improvement, or maybe its just me not being a fan of those camo patterns.

I believe there are already Russian infantry gear like vests and helmets from A2 released, would also be great if you utilize them.

Hehe... Glad I'm not the only one thinking this. So glad you released these and I enjoy using them as OPFOR instead of those CSAT Aliens...

Thank you and I'm looking forward to seeing these with some AK's of some sort :D

To the mod author. The tank name in real life is not T95 Black Eagle. T95 and Black Eagle is two different prototypes. Tank in ARMA3 is T80UM2 Black Eagle. :)

Thanks for the heads-up. I searched a bit for the real name but i found some misleading or contradictory informations on the internet.

I was aware it was a prototype but couldn't find any valuable information other than "black eagle".

I'll fix it later. :)

Another sugestion for mod author. Could you make camo like this for vehicles? Russian_T-90MS.jpg

And other thing... Could you make your units to use Massi Weapons Pack for alll those sexy AKs :)

And one more thing, are you planing on inplementing Arma Samples Mod when it gets released?

I'm still messing around with the tanks "camo" pattern, i'll consider the one you suggested.

Nope. I won't add Massi weapons for now, i've used them for some time but they aren't exactly what i expected them to be.

As i said before, i'll wait for some time and see if any other modder comes out with an high quality addon with just the AKs/PKMs.

I'll consider it. What i would have really liked to have was a CAS vehicle like an SU25 and a heavy lifter like the Mi8.

Unfortunately as of now i don't have time to learn how oxygen2 works, nevermind working on and importing the arma/arma 2 sample models. :(

I was also asked to make this zeus-compatible so i'll take a look into it as well.

UPDATE 25/07/2014

After so much time i'm giving this mod some restyling now that i have more assets to work on.

I've done several modifications (see changelog for a complete list), however there are a few more relevant than others:

The mod should be now fully compatible with ZEUS;

Both the infantry uniforms had some tweakings in the color;

I added new helmet models to resemble the standard infantry 6B7 ones issued right now;

I added a Machinegunner class with the PKP i released a few days ago;

All in all they have a pretty contemporary feel now.

This isn't any definitive version, i plan on making more changes along the way (soon, too).

I'm releasing it now in order to get feedback on the newly implemented features and clean it up if necessary.

That is still being worked on.

I discussed about it with the developers and it's gonna take minor changes.

Zeus on the other hand should work.

Chairborne, the units look awesome, but I still think you should make an optional config equipping them with Ak-12s and Ak74GL from HLC AK pack... it is so strange to see russians using iranians rifles =P

cheers!
