a generic Soviet/Warsaw Pact proxy army for ArmA 3
a generalized representation of Soviet Army and Warsaw Pact infantry forces from the late Cold War era (1980s and early '90s). This addon provides uniform and equipment retextures to represent a variety of Soviet-style infantry, but (as I am by no means a 3D modeler) it relies upon several other addons for models and weapons. You will need
those other addons for everything to work, and the content they provide that I have used here is 100% the work of the original authors.
Why did you make this?
I wasn't satisfied with the ports of U.S.S.R. units from previous ArmA titles and could find no single package that adequately matched my expectations for Cold War-era content when looking through other addons. So, I made what I was looking for.
Why generic instead of explicitly Soviet units?
Because you can easily represent a much wider variety of forces from different nations and eras with these without breaking immersion.
This addon features
- One new Soviet-inspired OPFOR faction with a variety of infantry units ready for use in the Editor
- Inventory of retextured uniforms and equipment for these units
- Configs that define Motostrelki (motorized infantry), Artillerymen, Helicopter Crewmen, Sappers, and Spetsnaz units as well as group configs based on Soviet doctrine for easy placement in the Editor
- Probably a few bugs -- it's my first addon, gimme a break ;)

This addon might be great for
- Cold War or post-Soviet themed missions in Chernarus or other European-themed maps
- Soviet Afghan themed missions in Takistan or other desert maps
- Anywhere you need expendable infantry to support your armored breakthroughs
- Use with Red Hammer Studio's Armed Forces of the Russian Federation mod, whenever that releases...
This addon might be improved in the future
- Additional uniform variety using more Eastern bloc camouflage patterns
- VDV-inspired airborne infantry units
- Accompanying BLUFOR West addon with generic NATO-inspired units (long term goal)
