Armed Assault 101st Airborne Division Addon

101st Airborne Division
by
CameronMcDonald


Description:
A new member over at the BIS forums asked me if I could make him some units from the 502nd Regiment of the 101st "Screaming Eagles" Airborne Division.
At the current point in time, all that entails was adding 101st unit patches and 502nd ACH patches. So this is basically all this addon is, but I suppose every little bit helps.

Don't forget - US airborne divisions don't get attached armour, so you'll still need the 1st Infantry Division crewdogs to drive the lazy buggers around should they need armored support!


Features:

  • Milspec ACU textures (well, for what I can do without the tools)
  • Matching normal maps to make things not look so bad
  • Different ACU-patterned vests to reduce "clone-ness"
  • BIS-compatible

Installation:
Simply extract the CMCD_101.PBO file you find in the archive, and stick it the ArmA\Addons folder, or the mod folder of your choice.
Run the game, enter the editor, and you'll find these units under BLUFOR\101st Airborne Division.
You will find the groups under BLUFOR\101st Airborne Division Squads.


Included files:
CMCD_101.pbo


No example mission at this point in time, but I'm working on something, trust me.
Don't forget - I shotgun the OFPEC tag: "CMCD_" - touch and YOUR HEAD A-SPLODE.


Classnames:
  • CMCD_101Rifleman
  • CMCD_101AutomaticRifleman
  • CMCD_101MachineGunner
  • CMCD_101Grenadier
  • CMCD_101ATSpecialist
  • CMCD_101AASpecialist
  • CMCD_101SquadLeader
  • CMCD_101TeamLeader
  • CMCD_101DesignatedMarksman
  • CMCD_101Officer
  • CMCD_101GarrisonUnit
  • CMCD_101Medic
  • CMCD_101Sniper
  • CMCD_101Engineer

Bugs:
- Incorrect equipment being worn, damn Marines.
- New vests (IOTVs) will be phased in by December this year, so when O2 arrives...
- All units except the sniper have PFC ranks, this is due to sharing of the textures.
