  1. Uhm... It' a bit more complicated. Iron Front is a full fledged game that uses an updated version of the Arma 2 engine. It's been sold in Steam since its release in 2012 (https://store.steampowered.com/app/91330/Iron_Front_Digital_War_Edition/). Initially the IFA3 mod team (totally unrelated to AWAR, the original developers, read EDIT below for more context) reached an agreement with the original Iron Front developers and producers X1 Software to release two versions of the mod, the full high quality version that allowed you to convert the standalone game files to Arma 3 and then a low quality lite version for free. Basically that pumped the Iron Front (standalone game) sells, so it was a beneficial agreement in both sides (EDIT: With the new info, apparently it only benefited DeepSilver and a little bit X1 Software). So, the IFA3 mod was initially released with both full and lite version. After some time, and the addition of different content, the mod team decided to discontinue the full version that converted the standalone game files. Here's the statement of Kju explaining the decision. And according to you, now apparently the IFA3 mod team is preparing a CDLC. I assume they have an agreement to use / sell the Iron Front standalone content, or they plan to remove it and create new stuff from scratch. They would probably have to also get the rights to use the name. It gets more complicated as the Iron Front IP is apparently owned/managed by the publisher Deep Silver and the producer X1 Software. (apparently its not longer the case, read below) EDIT (23rd September 2020). Since yesterday new information has been brought to me. Apparently after the issues with the first planned release by AWAR -the original developers of IF- some of the members of the IFA3 mod team worked in stabilizing and fixing the game. Apparently nowadays the control of the IP has been recovered by the original developers, AWAR. So things look bright for a possible IFA3 CDLC 🙂

    I did miss a tractor in Arma 3. In all the instances of the OFP/Arma series there has been a tractor. Arma 3 was the first that missed it -now fixed-. I think that is a really good asset for landscape decoration and mission immersion (I only play MILSIM, so immersion is important to me). In addition, I think most of those who, like me, survived "After Montignac" thanks to a tractor, it has been an icon of the series.

    Arma 3 DLC - CONTACT

    Probably they experienced some kind of issue. Anyway, I'm sure the wait will be worth it. And whatever year they show the teaser, it's gonna be good. 😸
  4. Apparently I missed the release. Good work guys, keep it up Now we only need a Mannerheim face As someone with family that participated in the conflict and that has interviewed some of those who fought, I'm really thankful for this mod.

    I am afraid we can not understand your messages. It is hard to answer. Could you ask a friend to write them for you? Thank you

    As reyhard commented we try to update them as much as we can. But free time is always an issue. Is there any particular part you'd like to be updated? Meaning, do you need any specific info?

    I'm afraid that you could find Arma units' events 24/7 hence it's impossible for us to please everyone. In fact Monday is quite a common day for Arma events around the world. In any case, you can always disable the steam auto-updates.
  8. That's a great idea. If you need reference pics for the Finnish side I've a good amount taken in different museums (Mikkeli, Helsinki, Parola, etc.).

    In Facebook someone suggested "Two mods, one cup (2M1C)"... I see future in that one...

    I've a huge respect for his actions. May he rest in peace.
  11. I’m afraid it’s not a Stryker MGS -which is an assault gun to support infantry-, but a Rooikat (photo below), and like the Italian Centauro it’s a recon vehicle with anti-tank capabilities. They can be pretty effective shoting down tanks. They were designed to do so. But of course, they don’t usually work alone in real life. And indeed, they are called tank-destroyers in RL. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rooikat https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/B1_Centauro
  12. Interesting missions. I liked the showcase, its quite round. The first mission of the campaign was really enjoyable and well made, I really felt inside the plot. The next two missions were a tad Call of Dutish for my taste (I killed more than 50 enemies in each), I rather take a more simulation approach using no interface assistance. In any case, good work! It was great to see you added a SP mini campaign again in the DLCs. Big thumbs up.
  13. Indeed. I really love all the new content and features. I dare to say it’s one of the best DLCs content wise (it even adds a SP mini campaign) but I can’t understand why there are no FFV positions. IMHO it’s a basic feature, at least for vehicle commanders. Even in recent conflicts like Iraq, many tank commanders fought unbuttoned (when possible), some even shot their personal weapons to defend their vehicles against enemies that got close. It’s quite a basic feature when fighting in urban places or tight spaces. I have the feeling that FFV is one of the most useful features that was brought to Arma, but one of the less used by the Vanilla vehicles.
