VIRTUS BODY ARMOUR SYSTEM

===========================================================

So with the British MOD rolling out the new Virtus body armour system to the british army I decided to try recreate it for Arma. Iv currently made the following:

 

  • Source Body Armour.
  • Source Webbing with multiple attachments and a standalone version with the webbing on its own for jungle style ops.
  • Revision Batlskin Cobra Plus Helmet. plus version with scrim
  • Revision Ballistic Glasses.

 

Further goals:

 

  • Revision face mask.
  • Revision Goggles.
  • Various configurations to suit certain roles.

 

The base model is currently in testing phase, once reached a suitable standard il release V1.

Good stuff. Looks really good. Have you got it accurately weighted to move with the arma 3 reskinned uniform? If so, brilliant. It was a chore to get the Ospreys to avoid clipping.

The weighting is about 80% there, it stretches a little across the back of the shoulder blades on the vest which I will be fixing, other than that I works really well. the bare webbing model wont need tweaking at all.

Got to admit the scrim looks abit funky to me but still looks good

I wet myself with joy on seeing these (is that something to worry about?)

 

Only part i'm a little unsure of is the vanilla uniform, but I'm aware that custom uniforms are hard as shit.

 

Any-who, great to see effort going into the new kit!

Looks really nicely done.

 

Which protection configuration are you doing the scalable vest in?

Can't tell if it's the Level 2 (frag filler and sides folded out) or Level 3 (frag filler + side plates) from the images, but I can see it's not the minimalist plate carrier setup, or the max protection one with pauldrons and gorget

Not sure about that here's a side on view, my friend sent me a load of references and i just modelled what I saw.

Sweet. Normals looks like the side plate pocket is there on yours. vs this without

 

This shows some of the other configurations, but not the side plates

Looks absolutely fantastic mate! Love the way you've done the scrim, been waiting for someone to do it like that. 

 

Will the equipment follow the same camouflage pattern as the 3CB stuff?
