Welcome to the Nam! You’ll soon be enjoying the suck as a everyday Marine or Soldier watching for traps and the many ambushes that lay wait for you in the Jungle, with an M16 or an M14 in your hand you have to be wary of every direction from up or down, looking for snipers in the trees or traps at your feet. Clear spider holes or tunnel systems, securing a victory through Hearts and Minds as Infantry, or enjoy yourself as a pilot for the cold war era, for either rotary or fixed wing! Fly yourself a Huey jamming music through the jungle as you transport troops or do CAS missions, or fly yourself a Jet running CAS missions dropping the bombs or nape on the enemy. Or do you fancy yourself fighting for the Vietnamese quest for independence? Play as the sneaky National Liberation Front, what the Americans call the “Viet Cong”, or play as the the North Vietnamese Army, you decide in The UNSUNG Vietnam War Mod!
The Unsung team which has been working on an authentic Vietnam-era mod pack since OFP brings you realistic jungle fighting, hand-to-hand combat and fully 3-dimensional warfare in this immersive mod pack for Arma 3.
Weapons, Uniforms, Vehicles and Aircraft from the 60s and 70s Era.
The new Da Krong terrain built by Razorback is at the heart of the Unsung for Arma 3 development. The terrain offers a rolling landscape with a highway, two waterways, two fixed US bases atop of hills and various Vietnamese settlements. The area is dominated by a dense jungle which may hold a surprise or two for the unwary squad exploring it. Buildings used are partially of Unsung 2.6 legacy, partially freshly developed.
Doung Island, another terrain built by Razorback is a island in the middle of a river within the Rung Sat area Southeast of Saigon. The Rung Sat areas is known for being the swampy lands and twining rivers all of which are in the Duong Island map, like Da Krong there are features to be found in the jungle such as aircraft wrecks and temple ruins. This map is still a work in progress.
Currently within the Bravo build, the vehicles within are various. From Statics like the Anti-Aircraft weaponry, machine gun bunkers and recoilless rifles, SAM launcher and radars, to vehicles like BTRs, M113s, to helicopters like the UH-1C and UH-1D Huey Helicopters and the CH-34 Choctaw. Even more extensive are the fixed wing aircraft from recon planes like the O-2 Skymaster, to planes like the AH-1J and the AC-47, the jets like the A-7 Corsair II with Bombers like the A-6 Intruder, and much more vehicles to explore in UNSUNG!
Various NVA units have been converted to Arma 3: infantry of '65, infantry of '68, crews, recon of '65. This main NVA force is augmented by VC main forces, recon forces and regional forces. The US side is presented by US marines of '65, the 1st ID and SOG units. Further new soldier models are in the making and will gradually replace the older Arma 2 models.
We also have an optional Uniform pack (included) to get the patches of units who served in the vietnam era with according era correct patches and rank slides.
The list of weapons is way too long to include on this single page! Weapons like the M14, the M16, the AK and SKS. All the classic weapons that you can remember from the era including more, 110 to be exact!
The list of individual weapons converted to Arma 3 is already to long to be included here. Of course the M-16 and AK-47 are converted as mainstay weapons of the involved forces.
