Really looking forward to this. Good to see some Aussie content from Plat-a-tac. Keep up the good work.

Interested to see how the PSQ-20 turns out. Do you think you'll be able to get a realistic enough representation of what a user would see IRL?

I don't think NV and FLIR fusion is possible in A3 but heck, who knows I hope there is a god-amongst-men out there who can make it happen

Well I wouldn't quite say that.....but maybe.

You can thank Lennard for that one. But on that note, we aren't planning to only focus on US based gear...so can definitely expect to see some broader coverage overtime.

I'm definitely gonna try everything I know to give the NVG's a realistic interface. If I can't successfully accomplish it, I'll seek help and see if anyone out there can assist with this. Surely the PSQ-20 would be a challenge, representing the NV and thermals, but we will definitely try.

 

To everyone else, thank you for the comments, it is very much appreciated and keeps us motivated to continue making progress.

Hi guys! first of all I just to congratulate you all for your work! 
Since you guys are open to requests here goes mine: Are you considering doing some Uk Cammos (WoodDPM/DesertDPM)? I think it would be a nice addition since there´s allot of US in Arma community but not so many UK forces like SAS/SBS etc... Thank you

I would have no problem with that at all. British forces is something that we've been very interested in expanding on for just the reason you mentioned. So personally, I'm hoping to provide any assets that relate to them in DPM and MTP variants. And most gear will be fully open to community retextures in case certain other patterns aren't included.

this is frickin wild. amazing work here. its really cool to see the IOTV, IMTV and ISPC, was not expecting those. makes me wonder about some of the more OG regular forces gear like the original MTV and OTV. and I can't even think of any other plate carriers worth mentioning except like maybe the tt fight light or the bae rbav, though I have a feeling sahio, the absolute madman, will come up with something anyways. this is one hell of a project here and though there's a long road ahead, but it'll be well worth the effort and well worth the wait. this is going to knock everything else out of the water.

Bruh.

BRUH.

BRUH.

3 words-

 

Private.

Military.

Contractors.

 

That's all I can see man, every one of em kitted out, ready to rock it in Chenarus, Zargabad, Altis, wherever.

And that one guy in the back with the RPG on his back and the .308 rifle in his arm dressed like a bush.

It's gonna be a reality man, all this new gear is gonna bring in so much variety.

Please bring that mask up over the nose. I don't know why that became a thing in ArmA, but it isn't a thing in real life. I'm pretty sure you would have a hard time finding pictures of war fighters wearing a mask under their nose like that in real life.

It's not just an arma thing

The one in the pic that we're currently using is from the Rangers mod, created by Adacas. We already have plans to create some newly modeled balaclavas, just haven't gotten around to it yet, so these are more or less placeholders for now. I agree with both sides of the argument, they are definitely seen more in police/law enforcement than military use. So in the end, we will keep this style included, but also have newer ones on the way. I went ahead and did some adjustments on this one for a temporary fix for now.

 

I messed around a bit with the PSQ-20 model, getting it scaled/positioned, as well as some other items. There is alot of things about this pic that are incorrect, so keep in mind this was only to get certain things scaled correctly...they will be fine tuned afterwards. Still gotta make a cover for the fasthawk, get the ratchet strap on the helmet adjusted correctly, arc adapters adjusted, etc etc. 

 

One more important thing that I wanted to mention to everyone, we have set up a Patreon donation page for Sahio and would like to share a bit of info on that. The account is directly tied to Sahio, and all donations will go to him solely. He is a young guy with a strong future ahead of him, and currently being unemployed, things are a struggle for him. This is his goal in life, and his passion, so he spends the majority of his time creating models, not only for this project, but also his own personal works. The guy is willing to bring anything we can dream of into a possibility in Arma, and all that he asks is a little support to help him continue making all of this possible. As always, donations aren't required, and is fully at your own discretion...but it would make a hell of a difference to someone that it could help. I chose not to take any portion of the money earned for myself, as I'm currently in a decent living situation, career, wife/kids, and have always treated this as a hobby, nothing more. But for him this is more than just a hobby, it's a career path, and I'm willing to support him as much as I can.

 

For anyone interested in having a look, I will provide a link here and update the OP with it. Thanks.

As a glasses-wearer and motorcyclist BADASS BIKER HURR ANGRY FACE, I can absolutely affirm that wearing balaclavas under the nose is indeed a Thing(tm). Especially in cold weather, it will fog up your glasses like crazy

As a former soldier in the U.S. Army stationed in ALASKA for 3 years I can say that wearing a balaclava under your nose IS NOT something normally done.

As with most non regulated itemsin the military it's a personal choice on how it's worn. Let's just leave to the modders choice.

it also depends on why you're wearing the balaclava. in alaska where you probably want to avoid losing your nose to the cold, theres a good chance you are going to have the balaclava up for the sake of keeping warm and fending off frostbite. in germany or something where you're a counter-terrorism specialist and you want to avoid having your identity exposed and your family murdered, theres a good chance you are going to have the balaclava down for the sake of concealment (or just looking cool) without obstructing the airway.
