Falke Task Force Arrowhead Radio


This adds the EX-8550 Radio for Task Force Arma 3 Radio.

The EX- 8550 is a small One-Way UHV (Ultra High Frequency) Short-range radio from authorities, security and military units.
German nicknames of this radio are: Handquetsche, Ackerschnacker, 855er or EXXE (Echse).
Due to its shortrange, roughly 5km, its very suited for radio usage between team and sqauds.

- 30 Channel
- 30 Channel Frequenz Save
- 30 Channel Frequenz Load
- Frequency name inside (init.sqf)
- New keys Channel up / down
- 7 Color LED HUD
- Sun / Moon shadow
- If you push the PTT button, a "TX" icon will be shown in the digital HUD.

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.
