Description:
Welcome everyone to the new and improved United States Air Force mod. This mod is a representation of the United States of America's Air Force. The United States Air Force (USAF) is the aerial warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven American uniformed services. Initially part of the United States Army, the USAF was formed as a separate branch of the military on 18 September 1947 under the National Security Act of 1947.It is the most recent branch of the U.S. military to be formed, and is the largest and one of the world's most technologically advanced air forces. The USAF articulates its core functions as Nuclear Deterrence Operations, Special Operations, Air Superiority, Global Integrated ISR, Space Superiority, Command and Control, Cyberspace Superiority, Personnel Recovery, Global Precision Attack, Building Partnerships, Rapid Global Mobility and Agile Combat Support.

Installation:
1. Download the Mod
2. Open @USAF Folder
3. You will see Folders
4. Open Required Folder and drag the required stuff into the root of the folder. @USAF>>Addons
5. Open Folders and drag out all the pbos that you want to the root of the folder. @USAF >>Addons
6. So if you want everything pull out everything to the root.

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_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to 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:
-mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

Note:
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.


Included files:
USAF_SFS.PBO
USAF_Missilebox.PBO
USAF_Vests.PBO


Notes:
This is a upgrade of last year's release. Our initial release in my opinion was plagued with bugs and errors. We have gone through this mod with a fine comb to obliterate all or atleast 98% of the issues. We are comfortable with a release of all of the assets in this mod and hope that it will be to the benefit of the community as well as we hope to see them in various online missions or used with Clans. I want to remind everyone that this mod is still very much in Alpha!!! moving into Beta!!

As always please report all errors and very open to constructive criticism as long as your not flat out attacking me or my team. MAKE ME SOME DANG VIDEOS LOL. Have fun. ALL VERSIONS PRIOR TO THIS RELEASE ARE OBSOLETE INCLUDING THE KEYS. Delete all prior versions and replace with this new one

Personal Notes and Useful Tips:
1. All Heavy Transports should be taken off with Full Flaps to avoid damage
2. Osprey in Real life lands VTOL style(HINT HINT)
3. I am still looking into have the UAVs fly at sea level instead of terrain lvl.
4. For the pilots if you are using ACE/AGM use the earplugs it will help with hearing communications.
5. Thank you all for using my mod..still have not seen nice lil movies involving them :)
6. When using the B-1 Service menu you should always add the Sniper Pod if you dont it will result in a bomb being loaded where the pod is supposed to be loaded. I am looking for a fix
7. DO NOT Fire all of the CBU-100 or 103 all together. It will result in serious lag(B1 and B2)
8.


Known issues:
- MFDs are place holders only right now
- Some Service menu screens dont belong ex. A10 menus on F16 paint
- CV-22 IDWS cannon not textured.
