Not sure if you have plans of making any air type vehicles but would be nice to see the Sea King HC4 implemented into ArmA has I've never seen one unless there is but would be nice to see it.

The Arma 2 BAF samples can be easily ported to A3. I think that the AAF hellcat helicopter is reusing the arma 2 BAF Lynx model so it would be ver easy to port it to A3. Just upgrade the arma 2 model p3d while reusing the Hellcat config. Que same with the Merlin helicopter.

 

Regarding the viking... Granq from the swedish mod made a Bvs206 ir however it is spelled. The articulated from part moved using steering Wheel source animation.

But where is the fun in porting stuff, for me the enjoyment is making them form scratch, for far too long British Arma content has had to put up with old ports

You are right.  Anyway, talk  to Granq  of the  SPF (swedish mod). He has  modelled  a Bvs206 you could use as a base to create the viking.

Sorry. I was writing with a mobile phone and it's difficult to write anything there. I meant that if you ask Granq he could tell you how he animated and configured his Bv206 so you can do something similar with the viking. Those articulated vehicles are not among the "normal type of vehicles simulated by Arma" so some special tricks must be done to get them ingame and make them work as they should..

 

BTW, I'm anxiously waiting for the bay class…. I'm doing myself a landing ship and I have always thought that there is a lack of amphibious capabilities in the Arma games. Arma 2's LHD was good but lacking in details. Keep us posted of your progress!!!!

Is it a Jackal 2, or a Jackal 2A?

Asking because it has some features of the 2A's armoured doors like the seals around the edges, but the 2A's doors are horizontal along the bottom edge.

Jackal 1, Jackal 2 and Coyote have doors that are slanted along the bottom edge (and along the whole outward side up from the wheel arch) but aren't sealing

Good spot! @da12thMonkey TBH i didnt even know there was a 2A, I did notice on some of them they have a longer ECM mounting plate with some kinda U shaped canvas underneath, I wonder what that is. Anyone got any Info?

The khaki-coloured bit of tube with the green caps on the end?

It's an air-line/filter for the equipment that has those coloured cables coming out of them. The green end-caps are pre-cleaners to scrub some of the dust and shit out of the air going in to it.

It's how it is since they came back from the desert and went to places like Poland, Estonia etc.

 

Either they've had to cover some of the kit up to make it winterised/waterised and restricted airflow, or it's part of signature management so some of the electronics don't light up like a Christmas tree through IR. So have added this to keep certain kit cool.

 

Seems like a general improvement to the whole vehicle since the mast/rack setup for all the stuff in the back seems a lot sturdier.

Are you planning on releasing vehicles individually or only when all done ? I could use the memifloat / scimitar in my mission now 🙂

The bow modules drop forward on the real ones. They're usually up like that until the pontoon is close to shore

Pic shows the range of travel they can have
