  1. Trouble did make a Chieftain tank pack a few years ago when he did the Challenger 1 you guys currently use for the BAF pack in CWR2, so you could ask him you could use those? If I remember correctly it was quite comprehensive pack and included Marks 9 through to 11 (my personal variant was a Mark 9 with a bulldozer blade attached. :D). Maybe a touch up with updated textures and it could serve as viable 'replacement' for the M60. I had kind of gone off Arma in recent months, but the CWR team has always managed to get me back into it with their regular updates to this fantastic mod. The fact you do a British expansion in addition to this is a massive bonus! :) Keep it up guys and Stagler I await further updates to the BAF DLC with great interest. :)
  2. Though I know they are not supporting any 3rd party mods, it would be nice we could still use the mission editor and prehaps create our own single-player and multiplayer missions aswell. :)

    Binkowski's WIP thread

    Last time I checked 10th mountain weren't Rangers either. :p Looking very spiffy.
  4. That's your opinion. Alot of us including myself play singleplayer mostly..
  5. Looks great uk_force, really liking the textures. Will you be doing soldiers with the newer 'assault osprey' body armour? As that is becoming more common out in Afghanistan and the older mk2 osprey's are becoming less relevant.

    Chechen War Russians

    I guess it's down to personal preference, in the OFP days I prefered RHS units over ORCS etc. RH's CS imports to look nice and shiney, and people like shiney things regardless if its accurate or not. :P I don't think he was trying to insult you Vilas, it doesn't help when English is neither of you speak english as a first language. So easy take things out of context. That said Vilas love you're weapon packs and can't wait for the update for these units to come out. :)

    CDF Conscripts

    I rather like CDF's own camo, it's unique to the faction. Prehaps a Naval version of that.

    CDF Conscripts

    Great start Nixo! Do you have any plans to tweak the CDF regular's gear? Kinda bugged me that the CDF were given modern radio gear with 90s helmets then to get 1940s issue ammo pouches. Prehaps a unit with the Russian assault vest and a newer russian helmet? Prehaps some CDF Spetsnaz/MVD troopers since ArmA2 did'nt come with any. Anyway great work Nixo :)

    BAF voice

    Not quite, I've noticed unless the mission is scripted in such a way, generic radio commands use the default American voices. Which is a bit of a let down tbh. :( I'd love to be able to use the voices in MP.
  10. The weapons are nothing to do with me mate, but I can assure you the sounds are realistic. :)
  11. But thats what they sound like, the sounds are recorded from the real life weapons. As for the black parts if you look at L85A2s its not glossy at all but quite a matt black.

    Very little if any as the weapons are built to the same design. Though if you look hard enough on the real world ones there are minor detail differences.

    Royal navy buys Hornets not JSF...

    I'm still doubtful an UCAV could be a viable replacement for a man in a cockpit. Not until I see one down a MIG-29 at least.

    ARMA 2 (OA) : DLC discussion thread

    What do you mean by in need of an update? ArmA's gaming engine was a huge improvement over OFPs, likewise ArmA2's engine was miles ahead of ArmA's. Then you have OA. Other than the basic interface (which is defined by programming rather than the engine), and the scripts used in the mission editor I fail to see how the engine is the same. I also see ArmA2/OA in the shops all the time where I live, so if someone wants a copy they can purchase it without an issue. I also have no problem in finding well populated servers online too, prehaps you are not using the filter function correctly? End of the day you can't force people to buy this game, ArmA2's target audience is significantly narrower than that of CoD or BF2. If BIS really did want to make a quick buck they could of made ArmA2 a CoD clone/knockoff with monthly $15 DLC maps and bullshit gameplay, but they did'nt they decided to stick with what they know best. Becuase quite frankly there is more money in it. Your dreams of seeing hundreds of thousands of online players at once is unrealistic.

    British Troops DLC released & Official 1.01 Update

    For the most part it's realistic enough, despite people saying the L86 is obsolete. It's still issued out to troops, the L85A2s do look a bit 'weird' but i'm not sure if thats the screenshots or the models. Most of the discussion has been around the attachments for the L85A2s and the Warrior turret. The soldiers look pretty decent though they are equipped with older equipment. Currently it's a mixed bag, you've got on one side a super modern Warrior IFV and AS50 sniper rifles. On the other you've got soldiers still wearing Osprey Mk3 vests and Mk6 helmets in 2012, when in the real world the newer Assault Osprey and Mk7 helmets are becoming more common. I fully understand it differcult to make sure everything is 100% correct and i'm not asking for that. It's just strange you've got some ultra modern kit mixed with older kit thats quickly becoming obsolete and no longer relevent. On the upside the warrior does look pretty cool. :)

    Mate, I know I've just said that more or less. What I was refering to was why it was not appropriate for a list of weapons in the BAF pack. ie The British Army Does not use it. The British Army use both the M82A1 and AW50 in small numbers.

    British Troops DLC released & Official 1.01 Update

    Unlikely, as i said its a weapon designed with the US in mind, however I imagine they've put it in the pack as it's a creation of Accuracy International. It may be designed in this country but it doesn't mean the British Army uses it, the M777 being another good example.
  18. MontyVCB

    British Troops DLC released & Official 1.01 Update

    The stinger for one, and the AS50 is the second as it's a weapon designed for US special forces.

    Isn't there a version of this rifle, or one very much like it already in OA?

    British Troops DLC released & Official 1.01 Update

    As previously mentioned its more likely the item is on trial as the MoD never purchased a great deal of them. More recently I've seen little to no trace of holosights in British Army Service. Since Op Herrick 8 was mid 2008 so its quite out of date, it's also when some of the newer kit started to show up. So its possible they were issued for testing, I've seen very little of them since.

    The point is they are not in common usage, and was merely procured for testing purposes. While the ACOG is far more common, you might as well give the soldiers Diemaco's because the SAS and SFSG use them if we are using that line of thinking. Though if the devs want to include some C8 SFWs I won't complain. :P I reckon the SUSAT still has a part to play however, it's gonna be a while before they are completely replaced by ELCANs. So its not impossible to think their won't be a few knocking around in a few years time. Though I'm of the opinion having an ACOG equiped version is a no brainer.

    No one has made that claim, we are talking about the errors in current spec equipment.
  23. MontyVCB

    British Troops DLC released & Official 1.01 Update

    I would say Prydain is correct, some aspects of the equipment has not be researched as well as it could of been. There are numerous errors with the equipment shown so far. I am however hoping that for the release some of the more obivous ones are corrected.
