I like the way WLD has selected his kit, G3s, Old/2nd grade Camoflage etc! Not to mention vehicles! The planes are lush, a nice mix of mid cost aircraft, Mirages, F16s etc. Just a quick question, you said you'll be making a marksman version of the G3, i assume this is the SG1?

Well for starters i greatly respect vilas' opinion and his input. We have worked together a great deal along the way and i consider vilas to be a great supporter of PRACS.

he is right. I do like to stick to the story line of what we have always done in the past. In this case i want to "moderize" the RACS to an extent because thats how we presented them in Arma1. Obviously this is later in the story line so some of that modernization has already taken place. Just today i was messing around with the trucks on Utes and i realized that if i changed the color of them to a more green toned cammo then they would actully be losing ther identity. So instead of changing thier colors i decided to add more green to to the distinctive Sahrani pattern to make them slightly more suitable.

I put a lot of heart and soul into this project. At times when i should be studying i find myself wandering in thought to how i want my army to be. Every addon I choose goes into careful consideration. Every variant I make is thouroughly gamed out as to how best make it fit. I took alot of flak from vilas on a couple occasions because i used russian hardware to fill a gap in the order of battle. I take this greatly to heart because as one of my peers in the comunity i want to know how the mod is percieved. If its bad then no one will use it. This is why i ask people ot suggest what they would like to see. Alot of good ideas have been posted here and some really aweful ones as well. I like to know what you want to see because i can take that into account as i finalize decisions. You will notice i never actually do what people tell me to do. Yet at times i let the requests greatly influence final decisions.

Moral of the story is dont be afraid to make suggestions. Dont get your feelings hurt if i do not respond to them. Project RACS will continue to follow the natural progression of the original roots we planted in Arma1.

I picked the g3 for my rifle because it fits and i like it. The marines are going to be coming in with wonderful FALs that vilas was so kind to provide. I like those too. It fits my common ammo theme im moving too. Working perfectly into my modernization and logistical improvements. PRACS has never been and never will be just another M4 or a jerk with a G36 cause it looks cool mod. ( PS vilas when i read M4 helo kitty i nearly pissed myself laughing so hard)

Oh one more thing, the DMS is going to be the MSG-1. Is basically a cheapened up version of the PSG-1 based off the G3.



something to wet your appeties a lil..... the M-266 57mm AA gun :) and the type 74 twin AA gun. Both have fully working recoils :)

Darkhorse : As for Vilas... You seem to have woken up on the wrong side of the bed today. I suggest taking a nap and trying it again.

you too
than why easy reskin of BIS M4 but with name HK 416 and HK symbol on receiver and copy-paste EOT get more "woooow" than hardly made with lots of realistic details FAL, G3, AMD, SKS, RPD ever ?
why simple addon by someone who takes BIS element of one weapon and sticks to BIS M4 gets "woow"
it is really 20 seconds to copy model of scope and paste "anywhere" on M4 or M16 model and save file

why reskin to desert takes more attention than realistic made from scratch soldiers with new models, new gear, new webbing, new helmets, new materials etc.

why name "special forces" makes addon succes?
RACS made a lot of unique stuff, me too, why "desert reskin" is better than "lot of vehicles made from scratch in many months of work" ?

or you do something and "i don't download, i wait for US special forces" :P

Vila your comment's can be taken offensively by a number of the community members on this forum i would suggest you keep your opinions to yourself and discuss them privately and not on the main forums, where you can start a flame war and/or spoil this thread which is about Project RAC's.


Moving on...


The Anti-Aircraft Batteries look stunning, are you going to make these tow-able by any vehicles? (if possible) also are you going to include ammunition/fuel/water truck's incorporating a logistic's element into the RAC's instead of using the US made trucks which imo aren't the best. Would be good to see proper fuel bowsers and things (actually i would be willing to model some bit's and pieces for Aircraft Maintenance, maybe some models of planes under maintenance,bowsers etc.)

Ok guys.... Lets not start any arguing because as you all know i like the fact that vilas came in here and expressed his opinion. Wich is something i expect from all our fans. So thank you vilas. Also thank you the rest of you guys for being rather civil and debating things. I WANT TO SEE THAT IN THIS THREAD. Input from fans and peers does make the mod better. vilas is very very passionate about what he does, I am as well. Those emotions sometimes dont get expressed with the right words across languages. We all must take that into consideration when reading others comments. Vilas simply expressed his opinion. feel free to express yours here as well....

Trucks, trucks,trucks, and more trucks
well the basic 4x4 truck i have the Pinzgauer kindly donated by lobo,

The M250 trucks are coming back in thoer 6x6 versions as well as a top secret SAM launcher on an 8 wheel version of the chassis......


here our loyal fans from Arma1 will remember what the 8 wheel chassis looks like.





as for SAM alunchers the SA6 will make a comeback in the armored pack. sibly an SA8, SA3 and a NASAMS.

What about Rapier Field Standard A/B with Blindfire Radar? Not the new version but the older version? that would be a "modern" SAM launcher upkeeping with the modernising? In my opinion it would be a good alternative to the SA6.

I do respect every mod makers they all do an awesome work out there, and we all should be friends, after all, we are all arma brothers ;)

wld, i was thinking IF you make a "recon" squad, i suggest this Land rover from emery, these will fit perfectly for a recon vehicle :) http://www.armaholic.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=8613&n=last#bottom but in with your camo's ofcouse :)

RKSL is doing rapier in all its glory. Again no need to be duplicating addons. The SA6 is a very very widely exported item. Several NATO countries even sell updated sets and missiles as well. As recently as the Russo-Georgian war the SA-6 was bringing state of the art aircraft out of the sky. Its something we already have and i would like to stick with it. I also have the SA-8 from OFP in Arma2 and it looks very nice. Not sure if it will make it into the wheeled pack or not.

Those will be the old launchers. Im working on a NASAMS for use as a static launcher as well as on the 8x8 platform

Message edited I got the real link


i want to ask you one question

Trucks: the one with 8 wheels as you said in ArmA 1 Project Racs topic that its going to Be something like a
Sahrani-Chinese Made SRBM as a reply for the old SLA scud threat

it does't look like a surface-to-Air missile
