Operation Northstar (ONS) began as a game modification for the hit title "Operation Flashpoint (OFP)" in 2002. Our objective was to create the highest quality addons that represented the Canadian Forces in order to allow users to experience what life in the forces was like.
In 2004, work ceased on the mod. Most of the team disbanded and moved onto other projects, but the hope of ONS lived on through the fans of the mod who kept on using the addons.
In March of 2006, a few of the team members of the mod decided that, with the announcement of Armed Assault, they had to get back into the game and do our best to represent Canada once again. Even though they haven't released anything yet (you can't blame them, the game isn't even out), they hope that you'll enjoy their work and will be looking forward to their releases as much as they are.
* Mod Objectives:
Operation Northstar will be released in three phases. They have been aptly titled:
All of the phases will include addons of the units that are presently in use, and maybe a bonus here and there. Again, the focus will be on present day units. As for the troops and weapons, they're waiting until some modding tools are released for ArmA before we begin making them.
They will also be releasing ONS:1985 once the first three packs have been released.
