Hello everyone this is my first ever Addon release. Although Arma 3 is set in the mid 2030's I decided to reskin the CH49-Mohawk to look like the Royal Navy's Sea King helicopter.
Unfortunately I know nothing about modelling in arma therefor I could not create a helicopter to look exactly the same as the Sea King but I think it looks good on the CH49-Mohawk.
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:/Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
64-Bit - C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
After extraction it should look like this:
You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons/mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.
You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.
And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!
When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods

I would like to thank the BI community for all the help with tutorials etc to help people like me be able to release these addons. And I would like to thank Sulpher for helping me to get the config just right for this to work. I would also like to thank Comp_uter15776 for helping with adding/removing details to try and make it look as accurate as possible using the CH49-Mohawk model.
