Quote : I'm a Photoshopper/skinner and long time OFP/ARMA player. Finally decided to go and make my own mod. I hope I don't offend anybody, because it's a actual wargroup that is still at war today. The whole reskin has no meaning to me except I was missing a faction between the Takistan army and militia maybe even a middle eastern faction that can fight another "Arabic" faction. My goal is to "copy" the Takistan militia and reskin them in a more blackish colored skins (based on IS) and more vehicles (Coyota, SUV etc).
Reskin all the Takistani militia men to IS'ish colours (WIP)
Add logo's or do total reskin's on militia vehicles (WIP)
Quote : Dear DAFmod fans i would like to inform you about the upgraded F-35 Lightning II & AH-64 Apache models made by Eggbeast & John Spartan that will be implemented into the DAFmod shortly. The upgraded Apache will have the ability to replace all weapons on all weapon pilons on the helicopter including the onces on the side. This has been made possible by BIS releasing the models to the public and John Spartan & Eggbeast who together have upgraded a bunch of vehicles to a higher standard making them more functional (with multi loadouts) and fun to use all together.
For the new F-35 the changes are way more drastic. This plane originally only had two bomb bays that held laser guided bombs that were not always usefull during a battle were no laser marker was at hand. But now John & Eggbest have added two fully modular pilons to the F-35 wings making it able to carry a full loadout in all kinds of configurations.
F-35/A non VTOL version with new wing pylons:
CAP version with meteor and AIM132 (will be Iris-T eventually)
GBU-39 Small Diameter Bombs
AGM88 and AGM154 long range SEAD
JDAMs (bomb rack is WIP)
Mk77 FAE (napalm basically)
Summer is almost gone but its been way to quiet on this topic. I wonder if anyone has had the time to try the mod or has some ideas about that still could be done. Thanks to the great work of Eggbeast & John Spartan there is a lot less things todo on the agenda that i would never have been able to do on my own. At some point they might also help me with some armed assault convertions and help upgrade them to a proper arma2 standard (PC-7 Pilates, F-16A Demoteam, Boxer & Fennek).

Kazimierz posted a new update showing the Harrier and the Marine Naval Aviator, which he is retexturing with permission from Meatball, on the Armaholic forums.
A release can be expected next week.
Quote kazimierz : Currently working out the configuration set-up.. C5 will be released shortly..
Currently, I have received permission to work on the mod by Meatball; the Marine Naval Aviator, to turn it into a British representation of flying personnel. However, the model still remains thoroughly US; the mask and equipment are american, not British. My re-skin is an approach to BAF flying personnel. All flyers are wearing the MK.3 helmet, unfortunately a HMCS is not yet available to the model.
I have made three versions so far; ready-for-use but still in the config fase:
