[WIP] PSZ: Polskie Siły Zbrojne (Polish Armed Forces)

Recommended Posts

Hello, folks.
 
On the behalf of the PSZ Team, I would like to present You a project we've been working on.
 
 

psz_logo_512.png

 
 
THE BACKGROUND
 
Since ArmA2, our dream was to provide at least a somewhat complete, realistic Polish Army faction for the game, in quality that could compete with the best mods from the international scene. Even though we were short on people, assets and even experience in some areas, we managed to make a first versions of the mod for A2, bringing attention of polish military industry, which offered us a few nice contracts. This lead to the absence of the ArmA2 mod release.
 
Now, it's ArmA3 time and we're both bigger, stronger and more experienced; We have a much more elastic product to build on. And we did, in fact, built some pretty nice things on it, things we should be able to release in 2015.
 
What could be expected?
 
 
THE PLAN
 
The general idea is to release the mod as soon as the base is ready, then build upon it, until we have everything one could ask for in terms of realistic Polish Armed Forces faction(s).
 
Initial plan includes PKW 2010 faction with weapons, infantry and some vehicles, which then should be supported by following Special Forces, PKW "Motorpool" and also the 2020-ish PKW faction updates. 2020(-ish) faction will be there to include the newest weaponry polish military industry is trying to incorporate, like MSBS Radon assault rifle, Negev LMG and possibly more, like ATGM Rosomak APC variant.
 
The mod will be fully standalone (meaning it will require no other mods to use it).
 
The mod will fully support ASDG Joint Rails and Muzzle devices and at the very moment we're discussing possible usage of MRT Accessory Functions and Weapon EventHandler Framework.
 
And finally, remember that everything was made to depict real-life counterparts and their behaviour as much as possible, while keeping the best possible visual and technical quality.
 
 
THE FIRST RELEASE
 
...is planned for 2015. It will include the following things:
 
===EQUIPMENT===
- wz.2010 uniforms (completely new models, not just retextures), in both woodland and desert camo
- UKO-M vests in about 50 variants, including both camo's, light and heavy and headset versions
- Kontraktor vests in 2 variants in both camo's
- wz.2005 helmets in 12 variants, including different camo and ESS goggle's variants
- Boonie Hats in both woodland and desert camo
- Berets of different branches of the polish military
- 4 basic backpacks in both camo's [bIS retex, will be expanded later on]
 
===ACCESSORIES===
- Eotech M552 close-combat optics
- PCS-5M Gabro ranged-combat optics with night vision (NV is not default, it's a built-in option)
 
===WEAPONS===
- wz.96A, wz.96B and wz.96C (aka wz.04) versions of Beryl rifles, including a wz.74 Pallad GL variant
- wz.96B and wz.96C (aka wz.04) versions of Mini-Beryl rifles
- extra variants of Beryl rifles with transparent plastic mags, in which depleting ammo can be seen
- MSBS Radon with MBUS sights and a P-MAG 30 MagLevel, including both normal and handgrip versions
- PKM light machine gun
- Alex sniper rifle
- Tor high-caliber anti-materiel sniper rifle
- RPG-7 anti-tank launcher
- Spike LR ATGM launcher
- GROM anti-air launcher
- P99 pistol [retextured BIS model]
 
===VEHICLES===
- Tumak HMMWV's
- Star 944 and Star 1466
- MRAP MaxxPro
- M97 Żbik
- Mi-8
- Mi-24
- C-130E
 
Every vehicle will be available in few variants of camouflage and armament.
 
The mod will also include few showcase scenarios.
 
Anyway, why not finally have a look at what we have to offer?

Really good news! Pictures promise to be great MOD. Especially, there is no well-made, public released, Polish units in ARMA 3. Therefore I'm very happy that you start this MOD and I hope you succeed.

 

Panowie, życzę Wam powodzenia!

Looks awesome so far. I like playing as the polish armed forces, now I did see that you will include the PKM But will it just be a regular Russian PKM Or will it be the Polish UKM-2000.

Also how far are you planing to take the mod, are you hoping to have all of the major equipment like the Leopard 2A4, PT-91 Twardy, KTO Rosomak. There is a good F-16 mod out already with polish textures so that may make it easier for you guys but... what do you think about, H225M, PZL W-3 Sokol, Mig 29?

Ok, looks great. I'm looking forward to play it.

I've gor few questions:

- Are you going to add some vests from Lubawa?

   http://www.lubawa.com.pl/index.php/en/balistyka-2/kamizelki-kuloodporne-2/modular-external/defender-pro

- Will Polish airbone helmets be included?

- Any chances for armor like Leo2A4, Leo2A5, PT91, KTO Rosomak with interriors?

- Will ther be Ukm 2000 and new modernised verison: http://www.zmt.tarnow.pl/en/offer/small-arms-and-remote-weapon-systems/7-62-mm-general-purpose-machine-gun-ukm-2000.html?

- Are You going to add 60mm, 98mm and 120mm mortars and statics like NSW and other HMG's and GMG's?

That's all for now :)

Good luck\ Powodzenia

Hello. Thank You for all of Your kind words.
 
Now let me adress some of the questions :)
 

@Mike Tim

Maybe after release we can get some RHS mag compatiblity
We could, but for what weapons? Problem is, that as far as I remember You'd have trouble squeezing a normal US stanag into the Beryl rifle (or at least older versions of it). Maybe with MSBS, PKM or RPG it would make sense.

 

@BagPiperGuy

But will it just be a regular Russian PKM Or will it be the Polish UKM-2000.
A classic russian PKM for now (Poles still used that a ton in both Afghanistan and Iraq, often more than UKM because of the fact it jammed less), thanks to our friends at CUP, who saved us some work. UKM-2000 of course will be there, but not for the first release.

 

Also how far are you planing to take the mod
Lemme quote the first post :)
 
"The general idea is to release the mod as soon as the base is ready, then build upon it, until we have everything one could ask for in terms of realistic Polish Armed Forces faction(s)."
 
are you hoping to have all of the major equipment like the Leopard 2A4, PT-91 Twardy, KTO Rosomak.
Yes. Some of those are already getting prepared.

 

There is a good F-16 mod out already with polish textures so that may make it easier for you guys
AFAIR Firewill wasn't interested in letting us use his F-16 mod.

 

H225M, PZL W-3 Sokol, Mig 29
No plans for H225M now, Mig-29 is in the works, Sokół is also planned, but it's far in the future. We focus on ground forces for now.

Had to answer in a new post, thanks to new BI Forum settings...

@Flippy Rage:

In the future.
Will Polish airbone helmets be included?
In the future.
Will ther be Ukm 2000 and new modernised verison
In the future :)
Any chances for armor like Leo2A4, Leo2A5, PT91, KTO Rosomak with interriors?
Yes. Especially considering we had a Rosomak with interiors in A2 and VBS2 :)
 
We'll see about Leo2A5. Rest is in the works.
Are You going to add 60mm, 98mm and 120mm mortars and statics like NSW and other HMG's and GMG's?
Some of it, yes. We already have basic mortar, ZU-23, SPG-9 and Mk19 in the game, there'll be WKM-B as well and probably a static Spike launcher, but that's probably it. Poles don't use that much static weaponry.
