Hey folks, Having spoken with my community there's a good sense of interest in some new assets, particularly vehicles of the British armed forces but also some others. Having recently completed my first mod for Arma, the STARstreak high velocity missile, I'd love to be able to continue this and provide some more, high quality vehicles and assets for our community and the Arma community at large to enjoy. Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus pandemic, I've been unable to find work and am subsequently running out of money. That's why I've set up a Patreon account to enable people to support my creative work. So if you're interested in supporting an aspiring developer and investing in some new content for the workshop, please consider checking it out! I'm not really expecting much interest since I'm not an 'established' mod maker, but I'm pretty confident I have the skills, dedication and attention to detail. Some assets our community expressed an interest in: Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank (most likely start point) Stormer HVM CVRT / FV102 Striker / FV103 Spartan / FV107 Scimitar Hawker Typhoon Type 74 patreon.com/lawmanUK Cheers, Law
After a 14 year break from releasing an addon, I'm giving it a new shot. Helping fill out the British armed forces faction with the CVRT Scimitar and Scorpion. Light tanks designed and deployed in the 60s/70s, the CVRT range is an interesting anomaly in the history of armoured vehicles: light, fast and roadworthy. Scorpion had a 76mm gun, Scimitar the 30mm rarden cannon. Scimitar is being replaced by Ajax/Scout SV and RWMIK over the next couple years and Scorpion dissapeared in the 90s, but these still seem like the perfect class of vehicle for the armaverse: Not totally impervious and steamroll capable like Challenger 2, but more than handy in an infantry support role or zipping around Altis as formation recce. Planning to cover different variations from its timeline, but probably will hold off on Scimitar 2 (a UOR that mated Scimitar turret with Samson APC hull to add more IED protection and ECM gubbins) unless I get around to making CVRT Samson to the level of detail it deserves. Similarly, not gonna bother with CVRT Sabre (Fox armoured car turret on the CVRT hull). On the cards: different hidden selections, camo options, markings and potentially some OPFOR faction variations for Scorpion in particular - it got shipped around the world. Progress on variations: Early cold war era Scorpion with wading screens and old style engine deck. Perfect for Germany, Norway, defending the homeland and the Falklands deployment. Mid life gulf war era Scimitar with IR plates, storage and other gubbins slapped on in the attempt to fit into the harsh desert environ and keeping up with the combined arms battle space. Late life uparmoured Scimitar. A diesel engine upgrade and Thermal Imaging extended the lifespan and capability of the tank far into our recent incursions in the middle east. Bar armour and ECM will also be an option.
