Hi all

I was kinda bored, so I decided to make this little addon that replaces almost all single weapon and vehicle names of the games from weapons to vehicles through missiles by more realistic names.

It will only replace displayed names and does not replace weapon classnames, hence it won’t affect missions design and addweapon/removeweapon commands.

/!\In ArmA, weapon and vehicle names are via stringtable, hence, I only replaced the names for English, German, French, Spanish and Italian languages./!\

It rocks! Just tested it in both, singleplayer and multiplayer. It's these little details that make for a great atmosphere!

If you don't mind, I'll add it to the list. smile_o.gif

And of course you can add it to your list and thank you for making this very useful list.

Thanks ofpdeadeye and Big for the mirrors.

@HGuderian:

Yup, seems I've messed up the closed 5-ton truck config entry for some languages. Sorry for unpleasantness. I'm going to fix it and thanks you for your feedback.

As far as the UH-60s go. There is no way to designate weather these are supposed to be Alpha or Lima models. They are unrealistic in the fact that they have miniguns and FFAR rockets sitting next to fuel tanks on the ESSS. In real life the conventional Army uses M240Hs on the hawks and would never have FFAR rockets. The only unit to use miniguns and FFARs is the 160th and they would never mount them next to external fuel tanks. Based on what BIS decided to do with the hawks in ArmA, I think the names you have given them is probably the best choice. Good work.

Very nice list! So gonna use this one!

One thing I noted is that I do think that the Hellfires are AGM-114K Hellfire II in ArmA.

Before the 1.11 patch it had 1 and 2 second burst modes. 1.11 changed it to full auto. I guess this addon was made with 1.11 in mind.

@acadiancrusader:

Thanks for the kind words but you should rather thank the real addon makers, the ones who contributes to this game by amazing and outstanding addons, I'm especially thinking about CameronMcDonald, Kegety, Solus, ACE team, IMWM team, etc and I may forget most of them.

I have just made this tiny addon to contribute to this amazing game ArmA is in my own way as I have no skill in moddeling nor config. To be honnest, every one could have made this addon and some people may find this addon useless and they may be right as bis names can be much more convenient ingame.

This paragraph has nothing to do with you, be sure of it wink_o.gif. I just wanted to clear the things up.

@Sakura-chan and Inkompetent

Thanks, gonna fix the Ural and the hellfire.

@BLUFOR

I've checked in game and seems fine here, could you be more precise please?

@ColonelSandersLite

See Maddmatt post. But here what is the 1.11 changelog says about GAU-8 (an incorrect fix btw, the 1.08 had it right):

* FIX (WEAPONS): GAU-8 fixed rate of fire

Ok, I updated this addon, here is the changelog (not a big deal, the addon itself is not a big deal anyhow):

Version 1.1

-Fixed M939A2 5-Ton Truck: It did not appear in some languages

-Tweaked repair, ammo and fuel truck names

-Fixed M119A1 105 mm Cannon: It did not appear in some languages

-Fixed few mistakes for wheeled vehicles

-AIM-9 Sidewinder to AIM-9X Sidewinder

-BGM-71 TOW to BGM-71A TOW

-Fixed Hellfire name -> AGM-114K Hellfire II (Thanks Inkompetent)

-Fixed Ural truck name -> Ural-4320 (Thanks Sakura-chan)

-Fixed GAU-8 for 1.08: It should be compatible for 1.08 and for 1.11 version now

Cool little addon, thanks. Suggestions:

Makarov SD -> 6P9 Silenced Pistol

http://world.guns.ru/handguns/hg154-e.htm

Also, you might want to doublecheck, M82A3 and M107 might not be the same weapon. ARMA has the M107.

Thanks for the feedback.

The silenced version of the makarov is awful in arma, It's just a makarov with a silencer sticked to it crazy_o.gif which does not exist in reality. I think i gonna let Makarov silenced, I don't know.

And i gonna change the M82A3 name, M107 will be more suitable for arma.

Hey Yeb,

Did you actually follow the link provided ? The pistol in ARMA is not a silenced makarov, you're right, BUT it's a pretty good representation of the 6P9 PB:

No it isn't. "Robalo" is right. The pistol in ArmA is a model of

the 6P9 (a.k.a. PB).
