General Equpiments and Accessories (or GEAR), is something that came out of my slight impatience from the absence of this set of Uniforms in the A3 scene, I simply cannot properly do proper post-normandy scenarios without M43 uniforms, therefore, with all my almost nonexisting modelling skills, I present thee some of thee this mod, which end up including more than just few uniforms.


Requires BOTH IFA3 and FoW 
For weapons mostly, FoW for equipments like radio, and ifa3 for vehicles


Uniforms:
- M1943 jackets, standard infantry version and paratrooper version with modified pockets on their pants; ranks from Pvt to S/Sgt
- M1942 Paratrooper uniforms
- Mantels (With different boots)
- Tanker jackets (also with different boots/pants)
- recoloured IF m1941 jackets and webbings to fit better. m41 now has a more greener-beige OD3 look, compared to the yellowish look of the original
- M41s, in few variants
- HBT 1st and 2nd pattern uniforms
- M37 wool shirts also in few variants
- p41s
- p41s with m41 jackets

Eqiupments:
- M1 Helmets (model done by motta, texture by ethridge)
- Jeep Caps 
- M7 Gas Bags worn on chest or leg and Gas Brassards on right arm

- M6 Gas Bags
- M44 SWDGs available on Glasses and NVG slots, they fit m1 helmets of both FoW and IFA3.
- US Airborne felt pads on glasses slot, compatible with FoW m36 suspenders
- Helmet band that fits IFA3 helmets, available on Glasses and NVG slots 
- some new US bandoliers (great now theres a total of 3 models of em), available as a backpack, and also as glasses/NV for decorative purposes
- M1928 Haversacks with some variants, be it M10 or M43 shovels
- M1936 Musette Bags and Suspenders
- M1945 Pack and Suspenders
- M43 and M10/M28 shovels in glasses/NV slots, hanging on the belt
- USMC M1941 Packs (alot of em)

- USMC Musette (Field) Bags
- Full set of web gear, be it cartridge belt, pouches, most of everything (credits to Justin N. for providing me some assets like highpoly cartridge belt, canteen, m24 pouch, and bandolier)


Units:
- groups of guys, standard infantry of early - mid - late war, MTO units, and winter units
- Groups of Airborne Units, 101st, 82nd, 17th Airborne Divisions, comes in m42s and M43s.
- groups of US Divisions in midwar uniforms (m41s + hbts/M37s) and latewar uniforms (m41s + m43s + mantels) available in editor and zeus, including 1ID, 2ID, 3ID, 4ID, 2AD, 28ID, 29ID, 34ID, 36ID, 77ID, 90ID, and some i may forgot
- Unit Patches of 17AB, 26ID, 28ID, 30ID, 79ID, and 90ID 
- several more unit patches made by bigstone, 1ID, 2ID, 4ID, 35ID, 36ID, 42ID, 104ID, 106ID
- Reskin of P47s, depicting the 62nd FS of 56th FG 
- Reskin of US Panzers
- Groups of marines, in few set of uniforms: Early, camos, late, and stuff( each come in landing preset with full gear and inland set with more varied headegear and stuff)

Optional Files:
If one wishes to not play with the numbered units, one might go to the mod's directory and remove the file "simc_uaf_44_divisie" from the addons folder

credits: 
- IFA3 team for everything; weapons for units, rank and unit patches; 
- FoW team for also everythng; making the webbings and packs, and weapons etc
- Bohemia Interactive for the arma sample models, made my jeep cap out of one of those beanies
- Ethridge for helmet textures
- motta: teaching me how to measure in blender, giving me accurate sizes for E-Tools, providing 3D scanned jump boots and m1 helmet models.
- Justin N. for basically teaching me how to sculpt nice normal maps, all the newly sculpted uniforms wont happen if it wasnt for his instructies. he also bought tannenbaum's models which is the base for several of the gear models.
- Schwienyy for UV-mapping the haversack, advices and ideas, testings, and additional screenshots
- Bigstone for advices and ideas, helmet band model, patch textures, and testing; Actually bigstone deserves more credits for dropping me all those ideas, w/o him this mod probably wont be this big, which actually, its not even that big now but it still could be much smaller
- Jaki for advices and ideas, testing, some textures, and additional screenshots.
- Courtland: Garrison cap model
- did i miss someone? 

 

Download (Requires FoW and IFA3):

Steam Workshop

Or

Armaholic

 

Old Version (Requires only IFA3):

Steam Workshop

Or

Armaholic

 

^ Yes, earlier versions of this mod only required IFA3, however After some deep thinking, intense contemplation, I decided to no-longer support this version, and continue working on a new one where the uniforms fits FoW webbings instead of IFA3. This version will remain as a rather stable legacy version, incase anyone prefers the IFA3 webbings or any other reasons. the new version has more or less the same classnames so it should be backwards-compatible if one decides to switch

Its a shame making such a wonderful mod and not making it available for all sub-communities then...most other ww2 mods are in PwS as it was the first application that was easy to use and everybody was at some point introduced to it by the current devs-members of the ww2 community. Many groups still use it

Whats wrong is that believe it or not, not all the mods that are on PwS are on SW, plus PwS gives you the ability to decide which version of a mod you want to use...anyway, lots of individuals still use it and mod devs are usually cooperative and warm towards their fanbase...it really wouldnt be much of trouble from your end if you decided to do so yourself and be one of those devs...we re all here united because of our passion for ww2 and we should build on it...asking me to put up a mirror?! I dont even know what a mirror is and thats why myself and others were introduced to PwS by many devs lol...

He wouldn't upload it himself anyway. But main reason why it's pointless is because withSIX is closing down it's network by the end of the week for good.

Can yall just appreciate the work the guys done instead of being asshats and complaining about where he puts the download for it... If you so desperately would like to save an older version of the mod that youd like through steam, heres the way to accomplish this...
C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\!Workshop
and obviously from here choose the mod you want and c+p to your desktop or wherever you feel the need to keep it... @simcardo Appreciate the work you've done mate! Keep it up!

In fact, you are absolutely right, it is impossible for me to access Steam content because of where I live.
Could you provide me with an address by which to contact Foxhound personally?
