I am proud to present you my very first ARMA 2 addon and also the very first addon in general for these amazing game titles. I have decided to take the Armenian Armed Forces as my first great project and will hopefully succeed with a complete package, as you may have noticed, it's only the country's land forces at the moment and incomplete!, but when having enough time and get hands on the required material, I will finish the it.
Basically, it is mostly a reskin of provided units, since I still have to expertize myself a bit more on creating own models what is time expensive. So I rely on given content and can hopefully please you with this for now .....
The addon includes different unit types and classes with their groups. I tried to create proper groups but did also use my own fantasy for example on special units or tanks. More and mixed variants will follow with the next update.
Basic single content is:
- Armenian Infantry - 3 variants, different camouflage
- Armenian Special Forces
- motorized vehicles
- mechanized vehicles
- static weaponry
- artillery ( in this case, divided from static weaponry )
Basic groupings are:
- Infantry formations, from squad to small teams
* Mechanized Infantry
* Motorized Infantry
- Special forces formations + mech/motorized
- Tank formations, platoon sized only. 3 weight classes
- 2x T-72B variant. Since you cannot correctly implement the camo on the era bricks ( or it needs damn lot of work ), I made my own camo concept on it. Simple but yet fictional
- in addition, different crews and some rather decorative or symbolic equipment, since their army has it.
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems.
For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ
When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here
Included .pbo files:
You will find the army on independent side.
- at the moment, some small texture bugs to be fixed on
the brdm-2 AA ( it looses new text at a far distance )
- two same units for SF. Just hade no time anymore to fix it
please report me, if you find any other bugs like for example missing textures etc.
- to complete the Armenian Armed Forces. When I'm done, it will be called so.
adding the air component and additional vehicles
adding naval elements ( yes, they have .... )
adding additional sf with camo variants + peacekeepers
enhancing everything ( more dirt - dust, more flexible larger and mixed formations, to name one issue .... )
