    Western Sahara CDLC Unofficial Discussion

    At first I've read the name of this CDLC and thought: "Hmm, POLISARIO vs Morocco, old good cold war assets... That's pretty good!". And then saw the screenshots... No, thanks.

    Soviet AF Pack

    So are there any transparent textures of the same dimensions in the pbo? Could you provide the path and the "setObjectTexture" numbers?

    Well, to use the advantage of the real life speeds of the MiG-21 you have to have at least the DCS-scale map😁

    Such speed is quite enough for the dimensions of ArmA maps.

    Soviet AF Pack

    Is there any way to set or disable the random numbers on the planes? Sometimes they mix with the numbers painted on the plane's livery (for example on MiG-21s).

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Vietnam used Mi-24A's until mid 2000's. The engines, APU, transmission, rotors, chassis, most part of the electrical systems of Hind-A do not differ much with the later models. Or even the same. So... If there is a choice between having an old assault helicopter from the storage base or having nothing... For example, Armenians used several Mi-24K's (observation and artillery directing variant that became useless in smaller post-USSR armies) as a regular assault helicopters. During Donbass war Ukrainian army used RKhM "Kashalot" NBC recon vehicles as an improvised APCs. Even in the Afghan war some Soviet army detachments used such exotic vehicle as escorting vehicle for Strategic missile TELs based on BTR-70 as regular APC (look at the turret on the photo). So it's a kind of the tradition...

    Why not? There were a lot of cases when newly formed post-Soviet countries used the old hardware from various storage bases and former Soviet army training centers.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Nope. I'm talking about the Soviet 280th helicopter regt. Soviet airforce used their Hinds-A in Afghanistan too. There were few of them (approx. 6 helicopters), but still... Some sources claim that it's one of them:

    Hind-A had been used at least by the 280th helicopter regt during first months of the Afghanistan war. Also I've read some rumors that Azerbaijan's army used few ones taken from one of the storage bases during 1991-1994 Karabakh war.

    Vietnam used this Hind model until 2010's. And Ethiopia - until 90's. Vietnamese Mi-24A Ethiopian Mi-24A
  11. Does anybody know if there was any CSLA skin for Franze's Su-17?

    I'm talking about this thing: When the highway magically turns into the airfield.

    Arma 3 Creator DLC: CSLA Iron Curtain

    From what I've seen this cDLC looks like some alpha or demo version. But despite this it is released as stable final one... Frankly speaking I am surprised by the CSLA team in negative way, because release of such content as a final version with a charge is a kind of disrespect to the ArmA community.

    Here in Russia we also use some parts of the highways as improvised airstrips. But nobody uses them in such role constantly (as it's done in the DLC's map). When the highway hits the concrete blocks and transforms into solid airfield with taxiway and large parking for aircrafts - that's nonsense.

    The overall content level is even lower than in their free mod for the previous ArmA title. But has a price tag. That's the reason. And the terrain... Do you know any place in the world where 4-stripes highway becomes constant landing strip of the airfield?
