Why would you replace Divers weapons with those that weren't made to operate under water?

In order to use divers in ground combat operations with under water deployment/extraction (no under water combat). But I precise this is not replacement (vanilla divers are still available), just another option for diving gameplay.

By the way there is a feature I was thinking about :

Add a rebreather vest with modified armor values. But I think that it could create compatiblity troubles with other mods like AGM (in AGM armor values are lowered and rebreathers got no armor at all).

Why not ? :)

Never done a weapon config before but I could try.

Found that in the SDAR config file :

canShootInWater = 1;

See mate, there ya go, i was planning on doing this, with a Uzi "if i can find any, the brazilian combat divers use the uzi for diving ops" and for adding more bullets into the ACP 2 magazine, there is a bifilar 45 magazine that Para usa created that holds 16+1 , their previous mag was 14+1

A guy I'm playing with originaly gave me that idea and I thought it was a good one.

The reasons are :

- It is coherent in terms of realism cause Tavor rifles are Israeli weapons (USA ally).

- It creates NATO infantry units not using 6.5 caliber.

- It allows a diferenciation between regular infantry with Tavor and maybe special force units with MX.

- It brings some diversity.

- NATO units with TRG are good looking. :p

Something that is maybe not so clear in my mod description :

The goal with that addon is to create units which can be used by human players or as AI units.

NATO tavor units offer an other challenge to players than vanilla ones. (easier)

That's why I also created night and day versions of each units.

If your thinking for this mod is to bring realism to each faction, then NATO - portrayed as US 7th Infantry Division based in Europe, wouldn't even have Merkava, Namer, Patria and other hybrid armored vehicles. America - although maybe crumbling nation in A3s timeline, Im sure can still afford to airlift tens of Abrams into the Aegean theater with their Air Mobility Command capabilities. In fact, NATO should be renamed to US Army as the presence in the Aegis Region is entirely by the US and UK (could be a new faction for Blufor if you're keen) and not the other 20 or so member nations.

just my 2 cents...

hey nice addon.

ive got an idea for you, how about raven PMCs?

type

this setObjectTexture [0, "\a3\characters_f\OPFOR\Data\clothing_rus_co.paa"]

in the initialization box of an opfor unit, and then youve got your raven uniform.

so could you make a raven faction?

@Modder

The first part of my argument was about to say it is not incoherent. The main part is about gameplay refering to my personal experiences with the game (and with the group I'm playing with).

Furthermore, I agree with what you say about faction's credibility in arma 3 but I'm not going to change it, just (maybe) bring some diversity among the units that already exist.

@JHard

I gonna look into your proposal. Thx.

Ok that's a great idea, I can do that. If you've got some ideas about their gear just tell me. Can you also explain what exactly are you thinking about when you talk about raven PMC's. Infortunatly I don't now exactly what it is.

for gear im thinking something along the lines of:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=287254189 (raven vest and AAF cap)

with varying headgear such as AAF helmets and stuff. and perhaps Black MXs or TRG's as the rifle.

And raven private military company (or raven security) is i think a scrapped independent faction that probably got replaced by AAF. is that what you were asking?

If raven are Private Military Company they should not wear a uniform with a russian flag on it. I think this texture has been created for russian units, don't you ?

Well they are a russian PMC... idk, im not the one who made them up. i guess you could rename them to the russian army (or w/e) if you wanted.

I spend my last day trying to make it work but I didn't managed to, I don't now why. I added your idea to the list of features but first I gonna finish the other features I planned.

Thanks for your interest, keep in touch.

Ps : Yes I was more thinking about russian army units, furthermore there is also a texture for the helmet.

Thanks for your idea but this addon is not going to have other requirements than Arma3 vanilla.

isn't possible the texture .smdi doesn't match the rus.co.paa texture

A lot of things changed in my mind about the addon. I decided to cancel the day&night versions of the units cause I think it's not very usefull and it overloads editor's lists. Same thing for NATO units with tavors but I keep them in a corner, maybe I'll add them later.

I began to work on some mercs units with disparate/guerilla like clothes for the independent side. Maybe some pictures soon. As usual if you got ideas feel free to post pictures.

Thanks to the suggestions of JHard and Zukov I'll maybe try to work on some russian special forces units.

Finaly I also plan to see if it's possible to create some sorts of islamists terrorists units in the OPFOR side (with persian faces and language).

Everything is in the 1st post.

How about NATO troops with black MXs?

Hi ! The CTRG units I made are equipped with black MX's and they are part of NATO troops., If you're speaking about vanilla (US) NATO troops, I'm not gonna make it cause of the reasons I talked about in my previous post :

it's not very usefull and it overloads editor's lists

If you want to play with vanilla (US) NATO troops equipped with black MX's, you can just change the weapons in the editor.
