Soviet Troops in Afghanistan Mod


After receiving quite a lot of requests I made an OKSVA (Limited Contingent of Soviet Troops in Afghanistan) mod which containts Soviet VDV, MSV, tank troops, artillery and aviation units and groups (in two versions: winter and summer) with the Soviet Afghanistan War equipment ('Afghanka' camo uniforms, winter jackets, soviet booniehats, etc).

  • Soviet 'Afghanka' summer and winter uniforms and equipment in various shades (the material the uniforms were made of at that time had a property to bleach out under the sun and after washing, so there was quite a range of shades of the uniforms in use) and more
  • Soviet booniehats 'Panamka' in 3 main versions: usual, 'rolled up' and under the helmet version (in several shades, with red/camo soviet star emblems)
  • Soviet Union OKSVA faction (consisting of MSV, VDV, artillery, tank troops and aviation units, vehicles, groups)
  • Soviet Union OKSVA of the Winter Period faction (consisting of MSV, VDV, artillery, tank troops and aviation units, vehicles, groups, with winter equipment)
  • Alternative TFAR loadouts for fans of more realistic gameplay that invlovles ACE3/TFAR mods

To install the Soviet Troops in Afghanistan Mod 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.

Included files:

Adds the 'Soviet Union (OKSVA)' and 'Soviet Union (OKSVA/Winter period)' factions, units, vehicles, groups to the OPFOR side.

Aside for this actual mod, the second screenshot contains stuff from the great LOP and RDS A2 CIV Packs, however they totally aren'y necessary for this mod to work, used them for the atmosphere of the screenshots. The maps are: Takistan Mountains, Fata, ToraBora.

And sorry, no RHS version here, since it's not really correct to arm everyone with AKM's or AK74m.
