A New CUPDate is here!
We're proud to announce that we have just released a new patch for our mod!
Even though not much time has passed since the last CUPDate, a lot of work went into the mod this past few months so we decided to share the progress we made with the community.
So what's new you ask?
First off we have replaced some of our weapon and accessory models with new, improved models that look much much better.
So we salute you, SVD Dragunov, being retired after some 15 years of service into Arma!
But that's not all, on top of this we're adding four new guns: the AS-VAL and SR-3M assault rifles, PP-19 Vityaz SMG and the M16A1 assault rifle! The new russian blasters come in several different variants to fit your taste depending on whether you're an old school purist or a picatinny rails lover.
Since we're on the subject of Russian guns, we can move on to Russian units as well: Russian troops now have updated uniforms and vests to better represent their Arma2 counterparts, and on top of that new Ratnik gear (courtesy of Massi!) has been added to give an even bigger choice.
Next off we have given both Sahrani Liberation Army and Takistani Army units a makeover, they now feature much improved gear to go along the new AK models we added in the previous patch, also PMC units now feature three additional uniforms and we've added a pair of very unique glasses.
Finally, two splendid new vehicles have been added, even though we missed April's fools by only a few days it's not too late to play FArma with the new Tractors.
This brings the list of missing A2 vehicles to just 11, so we're finally seeing the finish line on the horizon.
As usual the patch brings fixes and tweaks to the mod as well.
Most significantly we've made some more progress with Tanks DLC upgrades, as now the BMP-3 and T-55 feature an advanced damage model, weapons animations have been tweaked, most ATGMs should now have proper flight behavior without spinning out of control.

We're closing this CUPREP with a service announcement: our DEV versions, previously available only to a special tester group, will now be publicly available through Steam.
These special DEV versions are built weekly the night across Thursday and Friday around 1AM CET and they are a snapshot of the current internal version of the mod.
This allows you to access fixes and new content whenever it's added, but it also comes with the drawback that things might break more often and initial builds of new content might have issues.
As usual if you find issues you're welcome to create a ticket on our feedback tracker and we'll take a look when we have time: https://dev.cup-arma3.org/
Bye for now!
