MRA G.E.A.R. Factions (US Army, branches and others)
Hello everyone! I'm DrakeHawkins (AKA MrAzeroth (Steam), AKA LT. Drake Jackson on BIS forums)
I'm proud to present to you, the G.E.A.R. unofficial US army and branches unit pack! This pack will cover the unit part of all of KetsuCorp's G.E.A.R. releases.
Aside from the uniform/vests/helmets/etc. What weapons are this soldiers using?
-Currently the default ArmA 3 weapons, you will notice some soldiers are using different configurations of ArmA 3 weapons, that's because my MRA_CW.pbo file contains them, and now some soldier classes will have a different weapons or different accessories attached, for example: The autorifleman will have the MX SW with bipod and ACO sight, and the marksman will have the MXM with bipod and MOS scope.
-And before you ask: I haven't decided if I should combine this pack with other weapon packs since:
1) I haven't found a pack that fits all the units.
2) Too many downloads may be a bore.
Do they have the ArmA 3 vehicles?
-Yes! Can't miss that, but not all branches will have the same vehicles, such as the assault boat (Specially for marines and ST6 in AOR, those 2 will have it) or the A-164 wipeout (USAF in ABU will have it), that is to add more realism to it.
Did you add ArmA 3's groups?
Yes! For the sake of sanity, I've added the groups and now all my units will feature groups.
How about some screens?
Sure! Why not? Let me upload a few for you, I'll put them under link format because they need rezising and are over a 100kb, and if I remember well, forum rules say those are a no-no for those images.
PS: If anyone can/wants to take scenic screens of these units (With ArmA 3 weapons) I would be glad to post them here so they look better (With your propper credit and thanks for your collaboration on the proyect)

-Really big big big Kudos to Ketsucorp, without them, this would have never, ever, happened, at least from my side, I just packed units,
the whole texturing and hardwork here was done by them, they deserve all the credit.

I've learnt how to mess with config.cpp's.
-M1lkm8n for the support with some config issues, and responding over skype, thanks!

-kecharles28, thank you and withSIX team for providing a mirror!
-Foxhound, thank you for providing a mirror in armaholic! It's my favourite website to get addons since ArmA 1 times.
-If I'm missing someone, I apologize! Please mention it here or by PM and I'll add you inmideately since everyone that helps me with stuff (Configs, screenshots, provide content, or hosting) is someone I owe my grattitude.
Do you want to help?!
If you want to help, that would be great! I'll make sure to add you on the credits and thank you for your contributtion! :) Currently I'm needing help with the following:
-Hosting: If you are a person who owns a website for ArmA series addons, or you have a known host of your clan, and you want to host my addon, that would be neat!
I need black versions of the following:
-ArmA 3's 5.56 silencer.
-ArmA 3's MK-18 holographic sight.
And desert versions of the following (Plain desert tan or something that combines with the tan of the MX's should do):
-Mod icon design in .paa, anything with the MRA letters should do good, I'm open to suggestions.
-DON'T try to make money from this pack or its requirements in ANY possible way.
-Textures belong to Ketsucorp.
-If you want to release a different version of this addon, you HAVE to contact Ketsucorp and ask them if you can use their addons.
Also I ask to contact me for permission, and please to put my name in the credits if you do, after all, you got the idea from my pack if you do :)
