Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:/Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
64-Bit - C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/@your_mod_folder_nameYou can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder.
You'll also need add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.
And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!
When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.
Requires CBA_A3 for the M72A6 Launcher - CBA A3.
All units can be found under Blue/Canadian Army/Men AR or Men TW
All classnames can be found here: Class List (PDF) (v0.85).

Canadian Armed Forces Sound Fix:
Here is a temporary sound fix. It's only for the sounds, but that should be enough until we release our next build.
It includes keys but this is signed under a different key than the main mod (and is built as a separate mod):
Leopard 2 A6
Sniper Rifles (C3, C14, C15)
Royal Canadian Airforce:
Royal Canadian Navy:
Canadian Special Operation Forces:
CSOR Inspired Units
CJIRU Inspired Units
We are looking for modellers to help out with some vehicle creation. Please contact me via pm if you are able and willing to help out.
More Screen and Videos coming soon.
