Great to see a fan. Agreed. Yes it's a lot of work. At the moment it's just me, but I'm hoping as the mod picks up steam I could get one or two more people to help me. On the other hand, even though it's just me I am sourcing models from other people. I already have the models for Ratel 90, Eland 90, Mirage F1, Alouette, Puma, Oryx, Rooivalk, Lynx, A400M, Gripen, A-Darter, RG-31, [Tiger, NH90, Mistral LHD, V22 Osprey, Rafale]
Initially I had no plans to do OPFOR, but the idea has started to grow on me. As you know I'm currently working on the A109LUH, I understand Nigeria is also using this. My next helo will be the Alouette. This was used by SADF, Angola and Rhodesia. So...
I am a very big fan of the Rhodesian Selous Scouts. I have many books on the topic. A bit before my time, but love it. This is something I am seriously interested in.
Are you aware of the BushWar mod
? The page looks like it's dead, but the guys behind it are working on a ARMA3 version. The main guy tragically died in a motorcycle accident and their progress has slowed after that. Here is the facebook page
for the new version. I have been trying desperately to get in contact with them to try and make sure we are not duplicating effort, but they just refuse to talk to me. I was hoping that between the two mods we could cover more, but...
Help testing: Thanks. I'll take you up on that. I don't have much ready at the moment but I have your name down as a tester. Send me a email to ARMSCor.Mod(a)gmail.com so I can keep tract of you.
Do you have any information about Rhodesian Alouette helicopters? I want to know about paint schemes, armaments, versions and particularly any differences from SAAF versions.
Islands: I currently have no plans for this. Again was hoping to leverage something from the BushWar mod, but if I get to that point and they haven't done anything then I will have to.
