* Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead - ACE2 M47 Dragon

    NouberNou released another wip video showing the M47 Dragon in its final state.

      Quote NouberNou :
      Integrated it with ACE fully. The sights zoom is where I'm happy (technically it should be zoomed in a tiny bit more) and its correcting its flight path more realistically now (as far as I can tell).
      Also replaced the AI version so it sounds like the Dragon when its flying (though it still moves like a TOW).
      As you can see its pretty unwieldy! What an amazing piece of crap!

* Arma 2 - September 1939 Mod

    topas informed the community about the September 1939 Mod on the BI forums.

      Quote topas :
      September 1939 Mod team is happy to announce it's existence and plans to depict the events that marked the beginning of the largest armed conflict in the history of men.
      On September 1st 1939 armed forces of the 3rd Reich and a small contingent of Slovak army invaded Poland without any decleration of war. With no action taken by England or France (who both joined the war on September 3rd) the Polish Army was left to fight the Nazi force and counter the Soviet invasion that followed on September 17th alone. The organised polish resitance has been broken on October 6th.

* Arma 2 - Swedish Army Mod

    Mr. Bravo posted a new update of the progress they made with the Swedish Army Mod,
      Quote Mr. Bravo :
      First we have some wip-screenshots of our soldiers. The work goes on slowly right now, but it's not far from finished. At this point we're finetuning the animation selections/weights and messing with textures before we start throwing gear and pockets all over it.
      We have also remade all the icons for weapons and gear so everything match in quality. The highres picture is insane, and eventhough that doesnt include gear used from ACE2 or wip-stuff, that's over 40 weapons =D
      I throw in a sample of thermal-textures we're messing around with as well. That's the AK4, or the G3 made by Christian.1987 & Fallschirmjäger to be more exact.

      We once again got permission from Vilas to use his G36 models, and threw on some of our accessories like Aimpoints, DBAL2 and a grenadelauncher. These weapons are more or less used by Swedish special forces (SSG) and will be available in separate boxes ingame. They're using slightly modified BIS textures atm and will get custom thermals as all other weapons.

      A new official member joined our team last week, Zsalheden. He brought us some new awesome explosives and is currently working on the heavy machinegun TKSP (M2 50cal), which later on will be mounted on several vehicles and available as a deployable weapon. The three grenades are variants with explosive-, smoke- and chock-effects. Eventhough you wont barely see them ingame, at least you know you're throwing something awesome at your enemies!

      Oh and I almost forgot, the sniper-rifles! The guys behind the huge UKF Project has given us permission to use their L115A3, which Sweden is rumoured to buy this year to replace the old PSG90. Unfortunately we do not have much info about accessories, modifications or even its name at the moment. So we have currently implemented it by the prototype-name PSG10, and will modify it as we get to know more about it. It is using a modified greenish texture and also has UKF desert camo and silencers available.

      The much heavier AG90 (Barrett M82) have also been implemented with an ArmA1-model and slightly modified textures. The scope were replaced by the one we got from UKF Project, since it look a lot more like the ones Sweden use. More work will probably be put on this in the future.
