Great mod!

Issue:

ZU-23 does NOT fire at aircraft.

They shot down my F18.... :P

A t55, a functional BTR 60 and an M113 would make my year complete.

Swedish Forces (SFP) has a BTR 60 AFAIK.

Thanks for the T72, it handles properly for a change! Please consider porting The T-90 and BMP3 as well.

Doesn't happen here, with either the Merkava or the T-100. First-shot kills consistently.

Not happening for me. Are you using any other mods, perhaps the real armor mod, or anything that alters the values for the weapons?

I can't one shot T-72s (vanilla game, only this mod.) no matter the weapon. The T-72 also can easily disable T-100s from the side and one-shot them in one out of three shots on my screen (1.5 kilometers distance).

Is it also possible to turn the T-72s turret turning speed to a realistic value? They spin their turrets like AA guns. Recent footage from syria provides a good rule of thumb for this, about 2/3rds the top speed that the merkava should be capable of ingame. This would also make their first shots more reliably hit something.

Good work! Been missing the feeling you get when getting shot at by a DsHkm

Reyhard, awesome mod! Downloading now.

Do you or anyone else have some time for me to ask some modding questions? I want to create a custom faction for use in the editor but I cant find anywhere that has a good step by step tutorial. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I think this is what I need, but where do I go about defining what load out each soldier has?

EDIT: What I really need is a tutorial on what I will need to learn in order to make my own faction. Do I need any software that I likely don't have? Do I need to know C++ or anything like that. I am a complete modding noobie but I want to learn.

I get an error when i try to assemble the rds_metis_gun_bag and rds_metis_tripod_bag reading "bad vehicle type rds_Netis". I have no idea about modding in Arma but could this be a simple typo ?

@Niklas - thanks for the report! I fixed it now, however, the strange thing is, that it worked with that typo on my pc without any problems

@Baddazs - I don't think it's right place to describe such things. Come to config&scripting section ;)

I don't have a problem with disassembling and reassembling the metis when i put it into the editor, but spawning the backpacks themselves and then assembling the thing caused the error for me.

Hello, i have download your mod for the ZU-23 and the D30. And i love your mod, I puts D30 and ZU everywhere!

But I however spotted a bug (I think), D30 controlled by IA doesn't fire on armoured targets... Either on anything, I tried to add an officer, or even a drone for located targets, but they remain passive to move their cannon in everything directions.

Can you look if that also makes him to you? Thank you !

@Drakedaeron - Are you using D30 AT? The thing is, you can't make vehicle with artillery computer to direct fire. That's why I created separated class for AT purposes

Can you give a little more specifics on this? It's early in the morning and maybe my brain isn't working but I had some trouble getting this to work. Does this just pack the gun or does it actually allow towing?

Thanks for a great mod that has added some awesome and much needed content.

It's only animation made by request of Raven. I didn't make it wheels able for towing (I'm not sure, if OFP method would still work - needs some experiments)

Ah ok, thought that might be the case. Thanks for your reply.

It places the at in towingstate..it doesn't create an action to place it behind a truck. Nevertheless still cool. Place an AT on the map/editor and give it a name ..for example AT1 and put in the initfield: [at1] call RDS_fnc_D30_Pack.

Next level: towing it behind a truck? :-)

Bloody nice work!

Here's a question for you. Is it possible to add an IR illumination light that could make IR feasible? Not necessarily very relevant for the late nineties and onwards, but to have night capability for these tanks would go a long way to help play historical battles, especially of the sixties and seventies. I can imagine that if it were possible, that such a system would be a bit difficult for the AI to grasp the nuances of.
