C'est avec grand plaisir que je vous annonce la sortie des premiers packs HEXAgon pour le jeu ArmA2.
Les addons HEXAgon représentent bien sûr, sans la moindre prétention, l'armée française.

Vous trouverez donc pour cette première sortie publique, l'infanterie et son armement.
Ceci est une sorte de base pour nos futurs projets. Les unités ne sont pas très nombreuses pour le moment, nous espérons pouvoir proposer beaucoup plus bientôt.

C'est par ici : Indications et téléchargement.
Vous trouverez donc dans la zone de téléchargements 4 packs, à savoir :

UPDATE DU 27/03/2010
hexa_characters 1.2
hexa_weapons 1.2
hexa_sounds 1.2
hexa_language 1.2


HEXAgon French Infantry and Weapons pack


CHAR AMX leclerc

En raison de l'interdépendance des packs, il est important de les télécharger tous.
Nous travaillons actuellement sur un autre petit pack, il devrait être prêt dans quelques jours si tout va bien.

Nice to hear,
really love this units, hope for some Transport Units (Air and Ground), Some Air Attack Support (Jet or Heli), Jeeps and a Tank so this here can be a good opposit to West or East Troops Like the PLA Stuff from Fromz.

Keep it up this great stuff! And really Thank you for this stuff :)

At the looks of this you could create the whole french army! Awesome work !

UPDATE 1.0 VERS 1.2

IKAR:
Une mise à jour des packs est disponible, ils passent tous en version 1.2.
Il était prévu de terminer l'hélicoptère tigre pour une release, malheureusement c'était impossible à cause d'une erreur de réglage dans le pack weapons. Le tigre dépendait de ce réglage. Donc voilà, cette fois c'est réparé, il devrait arriver dans quelques jours.

En ce qui concerne la mise à jour des packs, vous trouverez donc de nouvelles versions du Famas-F1, mais également le Famas-G2.
Les soldats COS font également leur apparition, tout comme les pilotes. Ces derniers serviront très bientôt.

Vous trouverez aussi des unités portant le tag NE, il s'agit simplement de soldats Non Equipés.
Des caisses de munitions sont maintenant disponibles.

Le char Leclerc est également mis à jour, avec un nouveau réglage des effets sur les textures.

(Apologies for not writing French)

Thanks for these great additions!

I'd like to support these French units in my web based Arma II mission generator at www.plannedassault.com (see Youtube video for an introduction). In order to correctly represent French fighting forces at fire team, squad, section and platoon level, could somebody please explain the composition of the following units:
- infantry fire team: how many men, which weapons
- infantry squad ('group combat'?): how many men, which weapons
- infantry machine-gun team: how many men, which weapons
- infantry anti-tank team: how many men, which weapons
- COS fire team: how many men, which weapons
- COS squad: how many men, which weapons

- Leclerc tank section: how many tanks (2?)
- Leclerc tank platoon: how many tanks (4? 2 tank sections?)

Thanks in advance,
William

The French army composition is not easy to descibe and is rather different from the American army. Moreover there is a lot of difference between theory and what you see in the battlefield.

Basically from the bottom to the top:

1) Two "fire teams" per combat group: the 300m team and the 600m team (the numbers describe the engagement distance)

2) 3 combat groups per combat section + 1 commanding group + 1 support group

3) 3 combat sections + 1 commanding section + 1 support section

4) There is no platoon level in the French Army organization because the French section is equivalent to the US platoon. The word platoon (peloton) is still used for the French Armor unit, equivalent in size to an infantry section.

5) The company level


The composition is adaptable at the section level according to the section type (wheeled, tracked or VBL)

In practice, a combat section consists of 39 men:

3 Combat groups (21 men):

- 1 group leader (sergent). I'm using the French military ranks

300m team: (effective range of the team's weapons)

- 1 team leader (caporal or caporal-chef) (Famas Aimpoint)
- 2 AT4 CS launchers (+Famas)

600m team:

- 1 team leader (Famas J4)
- 1 Minimi gunner
- 1 LGI soldier - Individual Grenade Launcher (+Famas)

Vehicle crew :

- 1 radio gunner (gunner seat)
- 1 driver


1 Commanding group (5 men):

- 1 section leader (lieutenant)
- 1 SOA (non-commissioned officer)
- 1 radio operator
- 2 marksmen (FR-F2)


1 Support group (5 men):

- 1 group leader
- 2 Eryx launchers
- 2 Eryx ammo bearers


4 Armored vehicle crew (8 men)

- 1 radio gunner
- 1 driver


Every soldier in the combat group has a Famas.

There are 3 combat sections in a platoon + 1 commanding section + 1 support section (mortars and Milan).

COS are Spec Ops soldiers, COS is equivalent to USSOCOM.

I don't know about the Leclerc.

Merci bien, Lonestar.

I had found similar information on the french language wikipedia, but your explanation clarifies a few things (like the aim point gun for 300m/600m team leaders).
Have added support for HEXAgon team's units to PlannedAssault.

Wikipedia: Platoon

In a few armies, such as the French Army, a platoon is specifically a cavalry unit, and the infantry use "section" as the equivalent unit.

There is no platoon level in the French Army organization because the French section is equivalent to the US platoon.

The word is derived from the 17th-century French peloton, meaning a small detachment of soldiers, which came from pelote meaning a small ball (originally from Latin 'pillula', meaning little ball).

A lot of words and especially military vocabulary come from the French language.

COS is equivalent to USSOCOM.

I have created a dedicated topic on this forum: French Army organization

This is my last post in english in this thread considering we are in the French only sub-forum.

If anybody has questions or want to continue the discussion further please do so in the new thread.
