Spliffz released his TacVision (Tactical Vision) mod on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This is something I made so that those nifty Tactical Glasses could finally be used.
    My original idea was to have something cool, something futuristic but realistic at the same time.
    Maybe playing in to the whole 2035 idea a bit, but then most things we consider cheating now, would be cool then.
    As we are still living in the 'now', and me not being able to code it properly, I've downtuned it a bit so it works. And pretty fancy too!
    Still, my to-do list is long and I hope that all the features can be implemented over time.
    But for now, enjoy this release. Hope you find use for it and any feedback is appreciated!

    • current heading
    • wind dir/strength
    • GPS Coordinates
    • current in-game time
    • ATR (Automatic Target Recognition) - The Tactical Glasses & Shades are now able to scan your view for possible threats & targets
    • MTR (Manual Target Recognition) - With the Tactical Glasses & Shades on you can scan what is directly infront of you, and pass it to the ETI for detailed information.
    • ETI (Extended Target Information) - Does what it says, Gives Extended Target/Threat Information

Flax submitted an updated version of the RAF Chinook HC3.
This is a modified version of the MH-47e addon created by Konyo.

    Quote :
    As many people will have seen there is an awesome MH-47e addon out there created by Konyo. Some of the features in this helicopter along with the updated model and high resolution textures made it the perfect replacement for the vanilla Chinook - great if you are an American group. I am part of 42 Commando a British unit operating around current day Royal Marines Commandos, we wanted to have this chopper in an RAF skin to use for our operations. So I got in contact with Konyo and he gave us permission to modify the work he had done. I would like to thank Koyno and all the guys that helped him with this mod for creating it, and for allowing us to modify the work. Furthermore I would like to thank Leeds and Porter at 42 Commando for their work with the re-texturing of the aircraft and to the rest of 42 for testing.

    A few weeks later and here we have it the RAF Chinook HC3 (Fat Tanks). For more info on the real life counter part see here or here. Some features have been removed and tampered with for various reasons which are listed below:
    • Working Features:
        Correct Number of Flares/Countermeasures in a Forward Direction.
        Lock Dectection System Complete with Warning Sounds.
        Walkable Fuselarge.
        Digital Cockpit for Pilot & Co-Pilot.
        Option to Level, Lower & Raise Ramp.
        New & Improved Flight Engine Sound's.
        Fueselarge Night Lighting.
        Cockpit Night Lighting.
        Improved Gunner Animations.
        Improved Blade System, bend when under load etc.
        Custom Cargo Positions. (BackCrew & Loadmaster)
        Co-Pilot Camera is fully animated. (Thanks yurapetrov!)
        FLIR & Laser Marker on Co-Pilots Camera.
        Animated Loadmasters Hatch.
        Animated Windscreen Wipers.
        ACE Compatability.
    • Removed Features:
        Custom slinging (Will be re-added when working with British Vehicles)
        Custom fast roping (ACE Fast roping works fine for now)
        Ambient Radio Sounds
        Multiple Models (We chose to use the SRO model as it most closely fits the HC3)
        Wrecks (The wrecks are using the wrong model and will be updated)

Feint has submitted a Submarine and SDV demonstration mission.

    Quote Feint :
    In this mission, I demonstrate how to generate the static submarine object in Arma3. I also demonstrate how to attach it to an SDV so that it can be submerged. I further show how to attach ANOTHER SDV to the hull of the submarine and attach a simple action to that SDV so that it can be detached.
