  1. Explanation of the Mobile Weapons Project The Mobile Weapons Project is a futuristic conversion mod set at the turn of the 22nd century. The intent of the mod is to create a futuristic and immersive setting in ARMA that allows the users to have a unique sci-fi experience. To that end we have created multiple unique systems and functions for the players to help them feel like the soldiers of tomorrow or.. next week. The project will explore multiple concepts for the soldiers of the future through the use of multiple factions and looking to real world experimental projects to help us make grounded equipment and technologies. Examples of this can be seen in our first work, the Conqueror Suit and its planned features such as suits requiring spare parts should the suit get damaged and fuel cells that need to be swapped out when empty. The World of the Mobile Weapons Project 5 years of constant conflicts between the superpowers of the world, never openly becoming a world war, but coming very close on several occasions. The so called 5 years of fire were sparked by the deaths of most of the major world leaders due to negligence on the part of a North American Unions weapons manufacturer known as the Mobile Weapons Manufacturer. This led to the MWM being globally barred from selling weapons and the CEO and a good portion of the board being sentenced to prison or death to appease the world's powers. Many nations started banding together for protection and to gain strength after feeling like they'd been embarrassed and made to look weak. Inevitably this led to conflicts both internally and externally as policies changed and expansionism took over the world again. The Great Pacific Alliance formed with China and Japan at its heart in the East, The nations of Europe having dissolved the European Union formed a new alliance named the European Alliance, and the NAU became isolationist once again only focusing on protecting vital resources and their borders. The final faction to arise during these times was the private army for hire known as the Mobile Weapons Unit who were contracted by the NAU to assist them and their allies. Sporting experimental equipment rejected by the NAU the MWU would be considered a waste of money until the battle in the ghost city of Hing Cho where a company of the MWU tore out their powered armors internal A/Cs and inadvertently solved the issues the suits had been having. If you'd like to learn more feel free to join us at our discord https://discord.gg/YK7wDmQ The Mods Current State Currently the mod has been focusing on developing the Mobile Weapons Unit fraction of our mod. Equipped in experimental power armor rejected by the NAU the MWU was originally just the security force for MWM rebranded and trained to be PMCs after their barring from selling guns the MWU has a lot of experimental weapons and equipment that allows us to set a great tone for the mod and get certain groundwork in place for future developments in the mod. With the MWU we started with the Jet Pack and focused on trying to make it able to do three things. The MWU Faction in game 1. We wanted the jet pack to be controllable unlike anything we’d experienced before in ARMA. To this end we not only added short jumps but retros a jump where you aim mechanic that affects the length of your jump and where you jump. Testing the jetpack for controllability Retros 2. We wanted the jet pack to be very mobile until a lot of others we’ve seen where its short jumps primarily in a uniform manner. Testing out the long jump 3. We wanted the jet packs to have limited fuel instead of the recharge systems we’ve seen in other jet packs. Through testing within the unit we use as testers and based on our universe, we discovered that the common jetpack controls people use overlap important tactical abilities like slowly opening a door, so we implemented a jetpack safety system which shut down the jetpacks systems while activated and allowed use of those features again. Next came the powered armor, we wanted it to make sense for the lore and maintain a sense of realism. We started with a concept of a powered under suit that had armor over it which housed systems meant to help run the suit. (We abandoned the powered undersuit for more traditional EXO’s in the upgraded version however) The Armor came out nice, but after increasing the survivability of soldiers we looked to increase their effectiveness. We tried to go with logical upgrades and features a suit of powered armor would offer. The suit turns on and off so these upgrades can be toggles. The suit offers increased speed represented by slightly increased movement speed, increased strength represented by an decrease in recoil by about 30%. The suits HUD offers useful tactical data to the user, distance to target, compass, targets grid coordinates, players velocity, and altitude. Ex. . Finally, since the suit was designed to allow soldiers to operate in the upper atmosphere, we implemented a shielding system. Running on limited charge the shield deplete after every instance that would hit a player at high velocity. (Frag grenades drop the shields very fast) the shields don't recharge organically, but need to have their power cell manually replaced or charged. This gives operators shielding, all though limited. Due to the internal circuitry and such the armor runs very hot on thermals, in fact hot enough heat seeker missiles will chase the suit over certain vehicles. With all this experimental equipment we felt we needed just a bit more to truly make a player feel immersed. So we're working on implementing an armor break system. The system makes it so when hit on certain points there's a chance that certain suit functions will cease to work properly unless the part is repaired or replaced. Future Plans for the Mod While the mod isn't posted yet its near the point where we can share it with the public so we decided to make this post. With that in mind we currently plan on focusing on the faction's infantry, this includes their weapon suits and potential enhancements. We want to try different concepts for vehicles, aircraft and eventually want to add in mechs. For terrain we want to see if we can simulate Zero G combat. At this time we don’t have anyone who can do vehicles or mechs and need help in general to get the bigger stuff in. Below you can see models we are currently working on adding to the game or are in the concept phase.

  2. Actually right now we're on break from the project due to the team wanting to pursue other projects. At this time I unfortunately cannot confidently confirm any mech besides the sutherland.
  3. They will have a new skeleton, at the moment we have no poses to show.
  4. The scale of the mechs will be true scale, so long as Arma will allow it.
  5. The current approach is to turn the mech into actual player characters and not as a traditional vehicle/tank. Upside to this is the vehicle will be able to be driven by custom animations and look correct in terms of movement. Downside is the mech is now a character so features like ejection wont be easily done, if its even possible.
  6. Zaku II are planned down the road but the Knightmare was the smallest mech and will let us get the configs down for future projects.

    Hi we're making a mech mod as well. I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining our team. Your work is amazing and we'd love to have you. Join our discord https://discord.gg/xqqEaeb
  8. Notice of Cancelation At this time I regretfully have to announce the cancellation of this project. The team we had has lost interest and moved onto other projects. Unfortunately at this time I am not skilled enough to make a mod like the one intended. I am sorry to have let everyone down. The Mech Superiority Project The mech superiority project is a mod project intended to bring mechs from some of everyones' favorite animes to ArmA. Currently in production we have the Humanoind autonomous Knight, also known by fans of Code Geass as the Knightmare frame. This project has several goals before its completion; first to make functional mechs capable of not only participating in combat, but being a serious tactical weapon. Second is to make an effective and realistic pilot system, this goal comprises of multiple things; effective switching of weapons for mechs, defensive systems (shield usage, interceptors, etc), cockpit design and functionality. Third is to work on maneuverability (Flight, boosting). 4th goal is to have awesome giant mech battles. We intend to use the knightmare frames as a proof of concept before moving onto the much larger Mobile Suits from various Gundam series. Armaments To help accomplish the first goal two sets of armaments have been chosen to be both as faithful to the source material, and as effective as possible. The Knightmare is the equipped with a Knightmare Assault Rifle -2 (Name below was a typo). Mounted on top of the missile launcher which holds 4 90mm HEAT rockets, and underneath is a 5.5 machine gun. The slash harkin is a bonus for precise alternate fire, although it's firing will be limited it is a powerful weapon. This weapon system allows the knightmare to fight a variety of enemies effectively. The second sent makes use of an 120 mm cannon capable of taking out even more heavily armored targets from greater distances. Current Progress We have progressed to the configuration phase along with some texturing. We've hit a hiccup in the configs and it is slowing down our progress somewhat but we continue forward. Seeking Help/ or Join us in the fight We are currently looking for modders interested in being a part of this project to help us complete this project and achieve goals.
