EURUS OPFOR East


Organization for the Protection of Fundamentally Oppressive Regimes in the East
v1.0

a generic Soviet/Warsaw Pact proxy army for ArmA 3


What is this?
EURUS OPFOR East a generalized representation of Soviet Army and Warsaw Pact infantry forces from the late Cold War era (1980s and early '90s). This addon provides uniform and equipment retextures to represent a variety of Soviet-style infantry, but (as I am by no means a 3D modeler) it relies upon several other addons for models and weapons. You will need those other addons for everything to work, and the content they provide that I have used here is 100% the work of the original authors.

Why did you make this?
I wasn't satisfied with the ports of U.S.S.R. units from previous ArmA titles and could find no single package that adequately matched my expectations for Cold War-era content when looking through other addons. So, I made what I was looking for.

Why generic instead of explicitly Soviet units?
Because you can easily represent a much wider variety of forces from different nations and eras with these without breaking immersion.




This addon features:
  • One new Soviet-inspired OPFOR faction with a variety of infantry units ready for use in the Editor
  • Inventory of retextured uniforms and equipment for these units
  • Configs that define Motostrelki (motorized infantry), Artillerymen, Helicopter Crewmen, Sappers, and Spetsnaz units as well as group configs based on Soviet doctrine for easy placement in the Editor
  • Probably a few bugs -- it's my first addon, gimme a break ;)

This addon requires (yep, sorry, but it's a lot):

This addon is best with:

This addon might be great for:
  • Cold War or post-Soviet themed missions in Chernarus or other European-themed maps
  • Soviet Afghan themed missions in Takistan or other desert maps
  • Anywhere you need expendable infantry to support your armored breakthroughs
  • Use with Red Hammer Studio's Armed Forces of the Russian Federation mod, whenever that releases...

This addon might be improved in the future with:
  • Additional uniform variety using more Eastern bloc camouflage patterns
  • VDV-inspired airborne infantry units
  • Accompanying BLUFOR West addon with generic NATO-inspired units (long term goal)

This addon is available here:

Thanks for the post and the mirror! I've now released a successor to this addon that adds a lot of additional content and also reduces the number of requirements: http://www.armaholic.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=29504&n=last#bottom.

So, the new release replaces this one? Or should this release stay as it is?
