  1. I think the new Ace Medical is good. 

    It would be nice to see some extra options though. 
    Being able to set the probability of success or timing of actions for things like CPR and applying splints/bandages.

    For example;
    CPR Success Rate
    Soldier: 20%
    Medic: 40%
    Doctor: 60%
    CPR Action Time
    Soldier: 12 seconds
    Medic: 8 seconds
    Doctor: 6 seconds

    It's nice to be able to tweak the skill gradients.

  2. Heya. Love the mod. 

    Our unit plays older decades where combat medics don't have defibs. 
    The ADV setting "Maximum Time for successful CPR" (default 1200 seconds) is pinned to the Ace Medical setting "Maximum Revive Time"
    Additionally, the "Seconds added to revive timer (+/- 3 seconds)" for CPR is minimum 15 seconds. 

    This means that in many cases, especially with multiple people doing CPR, if there is no defib it can get people stuck in a deathless revive state where CPR will keep them alive but they can never be revived due to the patient having passed the Ace Revive timer which is tied to the Maximum Time for successful CPR. 

    Would it be possible to add a checkbox to decouple "Maximum time for CPR" from "Max Revive Time" to allow patients to expire?
    Or, allow the "Seconds added to revive timer" to go all the way down to 0 seconds?

  3. It would be great to see some of the less well known (in Arma) Soviet/Warsaw vehicles. 

    I would imagine it might not be a be a great leap to use the BMD-1 chassis to do something similar to what you have done with the MTLB; with turretless flat top variants like the BTR-D, BTR-ZD and BTR-RD.
    Even having the lower portion of a KUB modeled is a third of the way to a PT-76 or ASU-85.

    Privyet Tovarishch!
    The 345th is a comfortably casual realism unit, our goal is to make high quality, OPFOR orientated realism game play that is accessible to people who don’t want to deal with the stress and drama of more rigid milsim or realism units. We play our missions in the spirit of authenticity, with corresponding real-life equipment, tactics, and settings. We embrace the practical organisation and tactics of real life militaries – but reject “Yes Sir, No Sir” roleplay of some Arma communities. We have no mandatory attendance; as long as you're still interested you won't be removed from the unit, making us a good choice for serious Arma gameplay with unpredictable real life commitments.
    We play a Mechanised Airlanding Company (35+ player attendance for the main event) of 1970-1990s Soviet/Russian VDV Paratroopers Our approach is realistically low-tech and period appropriate; meaning only very limited use of optics, night vision, and radios. We believe this provides the best gameplay experience, with a greater focus on tactics, cohesion and camaraderie. We're blessed with an in-house mod team that creates great content for our missions; ensuring we can enjoy Cold War Arma to the fullest. In the near future, we may play a modern 2017 Syria campaign to shake things up a bit.
    Our main weekly event is a custom-made, Zeus-operated campaign. Each mission is linked together and the campaign evolves based on what happens each week. Each campaign lasts around 3-6 months, with around 12-24 missions in each. We're currently running a 1970s Altis Campaign, with some custom-made gear. We also run more varied, casual events throughout the week playing as anything from WW2 to Vietnam or even Modern. Mission Making/Zeusing is available to all - the high number of willing mission creators has been a huge factor in the dramatic growth of our unit over this past year.

    --Joining 345--
    Our joining process is simple. You tell us you're interested, and we'll set you up with the mods (we use an extremely simple method!) - and then you come along and play as a guest. If you enjoy it, welcome aboard! You don’t need any experience and you won’t be forced into hours-long training - you’ll learn on the go as a Conscript during the events. We’re looking for 16+ EU/NA players who are reasonably mature. We're always looking for leaders and crewmen; we have a very limited number of leadership positions, but we fill them based on merit and interest, not time spent in the unit. If you're looking for a leadership role, make sure to volunteer for Team Leader positions when they are available; they're even open to Conscripts for Wednesday/Sunday events.

    It's a good time to be a Cold War junkie it seems! Hell, the folks up in Pyongyang are even recreating the real world tension! It's nice to see some more proper old school Soviet gear. Am I to understand elements of this are to be rolled into the Soviet Armed Forces mod?


    Most assets will be rolled into the Soviet Armed Forces mod, yes. The two mods are being developed in tandem just now. 

    345th Soviet Uniforms Mod includes a lot of things that are, unnecessary for gameplay, such as a large amount of rank variations as well as barracks/field uniforms.

    Soviet Armed Forces mod will likely only include things that you'd commonly want to use in game, to keep the file size a bit lower. 


    Plus, nothing buggy will be added to the Soviet Armed Forces mod; unlike our cavalier project.

  7. 345th Soviet Uniforms Mod


    Thank you for checking out this page. I'm from the 345th SGVAR Arma Unit. We have made some equipment for our latest campaign, and we would like to share it with everyone, due to the unexpectedly high quality.
    It is a bunch of 1970/80's Soviet equipment. We are a VDV unit at the core but we will also add equipment from other branches soon! We're super hyped to see various mod teams working on more Cold War content.





    This mod contains uniforms, vests, backpacks and headgear to recreate the Soviet Armed Forces of the 1970s and 1980s Cold War Period.

    All uniforms/gear are compatible with Red Hammer Studios style uniforms and gear.


    This mod currently contains VDV and VMF equipment, but other branches are on the way. It also includes “roleplay” uniform variations that we use within the 345th SGVAR Arma 3 Unit.

    If you would like a slimmed down version of this pack that does not include rank shoulder boards, I suggest you download the Soviet Armed Forces mod, which will soon be updated!

    Future Plans & Bugfixes:

    We plan to include full sets of Motor Rifle (MSV), and Tank/Artillery equipment – including unique uniforms  with rank variations, and unique service-appropriate gear with class variations.

    The mod is currently progressing rapidly, so expect regular updates. Please report any bugs you encounter here in the thread.


    Mod Contains:

    • Full Set of M69 Field Uniforms (VDV), with ranks Ryadovoy to Major.
    • Full set of M69 Barracks Uniforms (VDV), with ranks Ryadovoy to Major.
    • Full set of M69 Uniforms (VMF), with ranks Ryadovoy to Major.
    • RD-54 Desentnik Backpack (With Variations)
    • RD-54 Desentnik Radio (TFAR)
    • RD-54 Backpack Pouches (With Variations) 
    • VDV Berets (Officer and Soldier) + VDV Jump Helmet
    • VMF Berets (Officer and Soldier)
