Hellenic Armed Forces Mod (HAFM) - NAVY

by
Aplion


Description:
After long period of efforts finally HAFM Naval mod came to a point that I and my friend Devastator_cm dreamed.

Version 2.0 practically is a totally new mod replacing the previous 1.5 version (in case both versions will be used at same time there will be incompatibility issue).

Bringing new ships, weapons, actions and capabilities, as much as possible like in the real life without breaking the game fun was our goal. We believe that we approached it by the best possible way so far.

This mod is coming after the successful Submarines mod, in order to complete another aspect of Naval warfare in ArmA 3.

For compatibility reasons we decided and split these two mods using another one as Common part/mod for Core and Weapon parts.
Due to this, the Common part/mod together with CBA are required for Submarines and Ships mods as base, without a direct dependency between Submarines and Ships
(Ships does not need Submarines to work neither Submarines need Ships).

Ships mod consists by six new Ships plus two from the old mod.

New Ships are:

Turkish NAVY - Barbaros class MEKO200TN Frigate - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbaros-class_frigate
Greek NAVY - Hydra class MEKO200HN Frigate - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydra-class_frigate
French NAVY - FREMM class Frigate - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FREMM_multipurpose_frigate
Russian NAVY - Admiral Grigorovich class Frigate - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Admiral_Grigorovich-class_frigate
Russian NAVY - BUYAN-M class Corvette - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buyan-class_corvette
A replenishment ship for each BLUFOR and OPFOR sides.

Also a variety of weapons - missiles - torpedoes - cruise missiles - countermeasures, together with defense systems, are included in order to make things more realistic.

So these Ships will also include:

- Active Radar Console (same as submarines but for shorter distances)
- Anti Ship Weapons Console (Torpedoes - CIWS - Missiles)
- Anti Missile Defense Console (CIWS - Missiles)
- Torpedoes Console (for Ships and Submarines)
- Countermeasures for incoming torpedoes (same as Submarines have)
- Cruise Missile Console (for deep strikes)
- Artillery Weapon (Artillery Cannon)
- Boats for leaving/entering the Ships (mainly for missions)
- Helicopter Landing (half-scripted - almost all helicopters can be land - unload cargo into Ship - load cargo from Ship - leave landing deck - etc)
- AI logic (in case ships are controlled solely by AIs, will perform evasive maneuvers and auto-defend or fire against targets)
- TFAR compatibility
- Replenishment Ship, with options to rearm - refuel - repair any same side Ship will be close to it (by the meaning of some minimum distance)
- Flags on ships (user can choose default flag texture or add his own through eden attributes)


Installation:
To install Hellenic Armed Forces Mod (HAFM) - NAVY 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:
HAFM_Navy.pbo
HAFM_Navy_Config.pbo
HAFM_Navy_Men.pbo


Usage:
For usage instructions and information of how to use the HAFM Navy please refer to the included documentation and/or example mission.

Finally, in order to support mission makers and ensure compatibility for missions that have been build using the old mod version, there is an Optional part/addon
which mission makers can use in order to be able to rework their missions in ArmA 3 editor, updating with new ships
(with this addon any old mission can be loaded in editor and old ships will auto-replaced by new ones).

Ofcourse, a detailed operations manual is coming with that mod, explaining the most parts of it as well as a text file with classnames.

Helper addon for mission makers for missions made with older version - optional:
