Greetings

I am an old Operation Flashpoint fan that discovered Armed Assault and Armed Assault 2 just a few days ago when my old computer crashed and I started to look for a new one. These are my questions.

1. is it possible to conduct combat from inside APCs such as BMP-1, BMP-2 ets with these new improved machines?

2. Armed Assault has been around longer then Armed Assault 2 is this why there are so few Addons to Arma2?

3. is Armed Assault and Arma 2 Addons compatible with one and another?

4. The main difference between Armed Assault and Arma 2 is?

Are there any mod makers out there that could think about putting a post Saddam Hussein era add-on together or is it in the works already? For Armed Assault and Arma 2? All since OPF and the Imuc addon and the scraped Gulf War Crisis mod I've wanted a pure Iraqi mod to play with if vehicles is needed to be listed etc give me a shout.

I noticed SFP is on the move again, please add Strv 103 C this time it would be so awesome to use such a tank in a game like this just to try out the suspension and its intended use as a defensive tank. You guys rocks!

I also noticed that FDF was in the works any plans to release it for Arma2? The old Flashpoint Resistance mod was absolutely fracking awesome and we loved it. I will buy both games next week I just want a heads up for all the goodies.

I also saw IDF being there it is like a flashback of great stuff hitting you after been out of the loop for this long, I wonder is there still Syrians to be played with in that mod? I loved the T-72 ERA tank in OPF and the BMP-1, BMP-2s in that mod, they where better then most other addons of the same type back in those days.

I have checked videos on You Tube if there are any from within a APC it would be great to see how it looks these days, I am a big fan of armoured warfare myself and it would be so awesome if one could fight while on the move from the inside of a BMP-1 or BTR-80 or why not Pansarbandvagn 302 (pbv 302).

Many questions I know but all help will be greatly appreciated.

Arma2 = Armed Assault 2 :) So its the latest version of BIS militairy sims. It is based upon there 3rd VR engine. I know of about 300 mods allready, but most impressive work must also be found in the missions this is a hard skill to master. most armoured vehicles have mutiple combat seats and some standard seats making it an allround war simulator. I have not yet seen a samam / desert full mod but there are alot of desert land maps and vehiles allready made for mission makers to put into there missions. For mods you would like there is a "mod request forum" or maybe someone is allready working on it perhaps :) I dont know what your real question is but if you realy are a fan of tank sims you wont regred Arma2. And welcome to the forum

Awesome!

I wonder if you can conduct mounted warfare as transported trooper in Arma2 or Armed Assault? That was the main thing I missed with old OPF along with the Commander hatch gunner placement but that I read you could mount as commander in these new games that is so cool. An add question the Commander sight on the older tanks in OPF where static you could only move them from the center to the left and right is this an issue that have been solved in these new versions?
