[Dust]Sabre released an updated version of his Sabre's Aircraft Library on the BI forums.
Quote : This tiny addon is a requirement for my Sopwith Camel, Curtiss JN-4, Albatros B.II, C.I,C.III, D.II and D.V, the Etrich Taube, Gotha G.V and Vickers Vimy addons (some of these not released publicly yet).
It contains the weapons and other parts needed (similar to Firewills AWS system).
Later it will also include some pilots (The current pilot is an A3 placeholder character currently, it will be updated sometime later).
Armitxes informed us he released an updated version of his Visual Studio Code - SQF Plugin on the BI forums.
Quote : Microsoft Visual Studio Code is a new, but already very known Code Editor. For those who don't know VS Code, it's pretty much like Sublime Text.
I've made a SQF Plugin for VS Code, there isn't any documentation about Plugins released yet as VS Code is in a preview state - means you can expect much more features to come but may also encounter some bugs.
Works on Linux, OS X and Windows.
Since the latest patches, the extension is developed by suggestions. You request - we do. Everyone is allowed to contribute to the project. If you have any ideas or even wish to participate you should check out our GitHub page.
Make sure to leave a rating at the Marketplace if you like the editor, it helps a lot!
Case insensitive commands [ Issue #7 ]
Highlighting (alternative color) for _local, public variables [ Issue #9 ]
Added new A3 v1.54 scripting commands
Removed highlighting for brackets (not needed, too disturbing)

Quote Zathmo : This is a map pack I created for the Unsung Vietnam mod for Arma 2. The map pack includes 10 linear missions and one sandbox mission. I plan on adding more missions or making a second mission pack if I receive a positive response from the community.
Matthewlet has submitted this mission where you have to eliminate all insurgents.
Quote Matthewlet : Complete all of the tasks, all of which include killing insurgents. NOTE: This is my first mission, so if it isn't very good please don't hate. If you have any suggestions to make my missions better please leave them in the comments section.
CimaleXXI has submitted the first mission of ITA DLC troops after the Malden island crisis.
Quote CimaleXXI : In response of alleged increasing cross-border activities by our national oil company, the Takistani autorithies closed definitively the border at the end of November 1985, then since the first days of December, troops movements supported by APCs and light tanks were observed close the area.
The night of 5th December Shapur e-Dalanper border guards informed ANA HQ of large units of TA (Takistani Army)' 191st Division (17th mechanised Rgt.) moving towards the border station and the oil rig site 10 miles inside Shapur territory in the Shapur Mansu area, the border guards were ordered to abandon their position and do not open fire to the Takistani troops.
The following days were characterised by intense but fruitless diplomatic actions between the british government and Takmir, Takistani authorities declare that now thanks to the Takistani military presence the disputed area is clear of illegal and potentially terrorist activities, but during a NATO summit both british prime minister Mrs M.Tatcher and his italian colleague wants the Takistani out of the Shapur corridor soon, and mobilised two elite units of their respective armies (2Para and the Folgore Bde), among these are elements of 187th Para Rgt (mechanised) and 9th Paracommando Rgt from the italians, while british have deployed the entire 2-Para Rgt with full support units and air assets.
The mission is rather articulated, Italian troops lead by player have to launch a dawn surprise attack against the Takistani troops that occupy the oil rig in the Tegger Mansu area and push out the entire Takistani military presence from the Shapur corridor.
The disparity in forces is more than evident, Takistani troops are equipped with state of the art weapons and vehicles, they have the best of everything supplied recently by the soviets that want to keep them as reliable allies, while italian troops are equipped and armed with 1970s era weapons and equipment.
The Takistani are rather well trained but are less disciplined and organised, they lack of battle experience, in fact they have been involved only in minor clashes and border accidents with minor countries and guerrillas, where they performed in a 'not particularly brilliant' manner.
Instead italian soldiers deployed here are well trained ay high NATO standards and forged to war during the last months, italian soldiers fight well always against a stronger and well armed enemy, if they are well motivated disciplined and trained by top officers and NCOs.
beppe_goodoldrebel released an updated version of his Black Ops Weapons '80s addon on the Armaholic forums.
Quote : This addons in inspired by the great CWR2 mod. I found lack of some weapons from the 80's that would bring new life to our Black Ops missions.
Basically there are 3 different version of MP5A1 and many version of CAR-15. I've converted also a model of Mossberg 500.
Let me know if there are bugs that i don't know.
