Recommended Posts

QUEEN ELIZABETH-CLASS AIRCRAFT CARRIER

By Eaglestrike999 and Lugi

Thanks to kind permission from JDog, we are announcing our work on our port of the ArmA 2 Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier.

92934CCB8E3CBC157885178EECA62B514CFCCA8B

We are aiming to update most things, ranging from a full overhaul of the textures to adding A3 lights all over the ship as well as smaller things such as adding lift buttons and other things.

Currently when testing with the Harrier by Chairborne, the ramp works at speeds upto around 135 kp/h above that it causes damage to the airframe or causes a detonation to occur. This of course, will be worked upon over time however it is not a priority at this stage of development.

Working on adding extra model detail to the two islands tonight, here's quick screenshot of the models so far.

Work continued last night and into the early hours of the morning with both of us working on the new Bow and Stern Islands. Here's a quick WIP shot.

I don't suppose we'd be fortunate enough to get interiors for the islands, even if they're essentially just versions of the A2/A3 air traffic control tower interiors?

We are planning to do an interior for the ATC at least but that's further down the line. As for an interior for the bridge, haven't really discussed it. Here's a quick pic I took of the interior of the ATC that we have right now.

The idea eventually is to have various scroll wheel functions you can turn on and off from the ATC, so possibly flood lights for the flight deck would be one.

sweet, it's about time. I remember porting this over myself during Alpha for personal use, and thought it'd be epic remade in the Arma 3 Engine, however this is just as great. Can't wait to see the progress.

Is there any interiors? like the LHD and Nimitz? I honestly never got this on Arma 2 so i have no clue if it has interiors already or not

There aren't any interiors at the moment, there is a hangar below the flight deck which is accessible via the two elevators and that's it. As for interior that we are adding -
