We’re glad to present the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Suit (EODS) this is an addon for Arma 3 that aims to improve the role of the combat engineer. This addon brings a new type of IEDs with many functions that are designed to extend the Arma 3 simulation.

English/Spanish/French translation for every feature.
Functional RCIEDs (Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Device).
Functional Cellphone to interact and detonate the RCIEDs.
Functional Editors modules to give to the IA the ability to detonate IEDs, to set a hidden/buried IED, and the possibility to create a Daisy Chain from the editor itself.
Functional UI to interact with the IEDs. The players can interact with the IEDs by many forms: arming the IEDs, burry the IEDs, defusing the IEDs and more.
Talon Mark II EOD Robot with animations and ied interactions.
THOR III Jammer with removable antenna.
APOBS system

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:

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:

There is an example mission in the package of the mod.

Future plans:
The Metal detector, the ABV, the Buffalo and the Husky are coming. Stay tuned!

version 0.0.5 notes
We only add a portion of the addon in this release. The APOBS - Talon Mark II - Thor III systems are included in this version. This build its functional with MP & SP. Please report any Bug.

Talon Mark II Notes:
Disclaimer: We wanted to release the Talon knowing that it have some problems. But we want to show to the community this little drone to have some feedback. This the reason for having the Talon in ALPHA stage. In this version the Talon have a standard textures. We're working on that. Also the turn movement of the Talon have some problems and the arm is moving by an UAV IA, we're working in fix these problems. Finally the 3d model of the tracks is still in development.

The Talon have the ability for place satchels or detonation charges (remember to put a charge or satchel in the Talon inventory) and also the Talon can grab objects and IEDs with its pincers. To use it you must be in the blufor side and also you need to have a UAV Terminal (B_UavTermina) and have it connected to the drone. You have the possibility of occupy the Gunner position for arm utilization and the Driver to drive the Talon. Also you have a set of key bindings to Incline, extend, and retract the arm and for open and close the pincers (see the first part of the manual to change the Key bindigs for the Talon). For default the key bindigs are:

Incline arm Forward: Delete key.
Incline arm Backward: Page down key.
Extend the arm: Page up key.
Retract the arm: End key.
Open Pincers: Home key.

Thor III Notes:
Disclaimer: The THOR III is in alpha stage because we're working in some kind of interface for it and some advance functions. For now its usage is pretty basic.

The THOR III is a man-portable, counter-radio-controlled improvised explosive device (IED) jammer. In our addon we have the different configuration of antennas for this device.

With the Low Band Antenna the THOR III have 800 meters of effective range but low probability to Jam the RCIEDs.
With the Mid Band Antenna the THOR III have 600 meters of effective range but regular probability to Jam the RCIEDs.
With the Mid Band Antenna the THOR III have 200 meters of effective range but high probability to Jam the RCIEDs.

You could change the THOR III antenna if you have a Low, Mid, High Band Antenna in your inventory. Also there is the possibility to remove the antenna.
