CFB Skins


CFB Skins is a mod that reskins some of the base arma units and weapons to add a flavour of the Canadian Armed Forces. An attempt has been made to keep the skins and the equipment as closely modeled as possible (within the confines of the existing ARMA equipment) to weapons and vehicles that are in use with contemporary forces.

To install CFB Skins you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
