W0lle released the Cold War Rearmed² - West German Army expansion on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    Thanks to the kind donations of Marseille77 and vilas, we're happy to present you another small Expansion for CWR².

    At present, it features "only" some units, their weapons and small editor objects. But be sure there will be more in future updates. Stay tuned and meanwhile have fun with these fine guys!

    No missions included yet cause two weeks ago my mountain bike and me ran into a cow on a mountain trip. The cow won and I went 20 meters downhill and was stopped by a rock. The bike is a pile of junk and I ended up with a hell lot of broken bones.
    I can only use left arm, no way I can work on missions now. Alone packing the expansion took me 3 days.

    I hope you still have some fun with these guys and their tools!

    Quote FoxFort :
    This addon will REPLACE your vanilla CHDKZ infantry textures.

    This addon changes CHDKZ infantry uniform textures into similar uniform textures of "Donbass People's Militia" in Eastern Ukraine crisis of 2014. I decided to name them "Zagoria People's Militia" (ZPM). I didn't made any changes to the ingame names in order to preserve compability with Singleplayer
    New uniforms are: Spectre-S, Flora, Gorka with Berezka, solo Berezka for medic and Izlom for commander.

    Since I've changed the name from "CHDKZ_camo" into "ZPM". This is now v1.0 of ZPM.

Franze released an updated version of the AH-64D Apache Longbow by him and Nodunit on the BI forums.
It now comes with an ArmA3 compatible controls file, this will enable usage of this chopper in Arma 3. See the downloadpage or the below quote for more information.

    Quote Franze :
    Version 1.32 has been released!

    After more than 3 years, we are finally ready to make the first release of our AH-64D to ArmA2! This addon represents a full circle for us: I had first started on an Apache Longbow for Operation Flashpoint 10 years ago; Nodunit and I made our first combined upgraded release 8 years ago. Now we've finally been able to come back and do what we could only dream of several years ago.

    • Modified data transfer mechanics.
    • Fixed bug with PNVS and FLIR lenses on the model.
    • Fixed multiplayer bugs with scripting not initializing.
    • Added CPG control options when AI is piloting.
    • Modified model UV coordinates.
    • Fixed bug with multiplayer missile avoidance.

Levrex informed us he released version RC3 of the Task Force Arrowhead Radio for ArmA 2: CO which he ported with permission from Arma 3 to Arma 2: OA.

    Quote :
    This is a port of Task Force Radio (ArmA-III) to ArmA-II: CO. It requires @CBA_CO addon.
    It runs on TeamSpeak 3.0.14 and older (till 3.0.11), and probably 3.0.15 too. It requires beta patch no less than 1.62.103718 to work properly, otherwise you sometimes won't hear players in vehicles and encounter other errors.
    Currently it requires plugin version no less than 0.9.0 to work. Plugins are 100% compatible with ArmA3 plugins.

    Having @ACE addon is very preferable, otherwise you will encounter different errors. You can play without it, though, but make sure to delete task_force_ace_radios.pbo and .bisign then.

    • Fixed an error with fn_getFactions.sqf, which popped up on mission start if certain ArmA-2 modules were included.
    • Fixed coop_channel. Now it works properly, and you can also write down the channel name and password in init.sqf to move different sides or even certain players in different channels.
    • Fixed "pictureStaticObject not found" issue when using A.C.E.-2 AN/PRC-117f radio interface.
    • AN/PRC-148: the volume is now changed by a black knob on top of the radio. Additional channel is now on MODE button. GR button does not do anything.
    • FADAK: numpad also works now. You can use it to switch channels. 9 sets additional channel as well as the top pin.
    • AN/PRC-152: the same as above.
    • New sounds for knobs.
    • Added a function to show the channel in which the marker would be placed. The channel is also logged now, as well as the player's side.
    • Fixed the error in function for getting radio settings when the player is a civilian.
    • Rotating volume knobs on R-55 and PD-785.
    • Fixed the wrong info in server config. If tf_no_auto_long_range_radio = 0, then players WOULD receive LR radios.
    • Changed encoding of documentation files to UTF-8 as to make them readable on all systems.
    • Added a .pbo which fixes several ACE function errors. File name is ace_163_fix.pbo. If you don't have ACE or CBA nor plan to install them, you should delete it as well as the task_force_ace_radios.pbo and corresponding .bisign files.

      The T34C turbomentor has one configuration
      - 2 defa 7.62 pods and 2 rocket pods
    • Changes in other planes:
    • A4 added thrust flame, add _AS map to the materials
