Bohemia Interactive released a special Arma 3 developer diary video about Tanoa island, the new terrain featured in the upcoming Arma 3 expansion, which is set for release in the first half of 2016.
Tanoa island is a 100 km² South Pacific archipelago.
In this developer diary, Arma 3's Creative Director Jay Crowe and Project Lead Joris-Jan van 't Land discuss how the devteam came to a South Pacific destination, describe some of the key characteristics and points of interest on Tanoa and reflect on development so far and the roadmap ahead.
Quote : Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday July 30th 2015
Tanoa will be the first South Pacific destination featured in the Arma series. Previous Arma locations included the Mediterranean islands of Altis and Stratis (Arma 3), the Eastern-European country of Chernarus (Arma 2), the Middle-Eastern nation of Takistan (Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead), and various other terrains in the fictional Armaverse.
Besides the new Tanoa terrain, the Arma 3 expansion will include new vehicles, weapons, attachments and gear, characters, playable content, and more. The expansion is scheduled to be released in the first half of 2016 and will be distributed as DLC for the base Arma 3 game.

I have tried to capture their profile and best field within the constraints that give me the objects.
In some cases due to the limitations I have taken some license.
This version is in Beta01.

Fiesel-Wiesel released in the BI forums a new mission where you must observe the Island, gather possible informations and destroy possible threats.
Quote Fiesel-Wiesel : Hey Guys, I'm here to release my next mission, after "Operation Waterfall".
This one is much bigger and has a lot of triggers, scripts and technics inside, which I learned the last months and year.
I was always doubt to release them, cause they need a bunch of Mods which we are using.
And sometimes I´m asking myself, if we might the only one who has 10 and more Mods running in one mission...
Anyaways, in the next time I will release all of my missions and hope you enjoy them.
Like I said, if you are willing to download the big load of addons you might also enjoy this one!!
And of course, if you once downloaded all these great Addons, you are ready to play all of our cool missions!
