Russian Naval Infantry


A retexture of some A3 assets to make them look like contemporary Russian Naval Infantry.
Infantry comes with two different camos (Flora and DigiFlora), and vehicles come in two different painting schemes (Camo and Green).
There are also some static weapons, backpacks, pre-organized groups for mission making.
I was bored of having the Iranians From Outer Space as Opfor so i went on and made my own units complete with vehicles.
This is not a 100% accurate reproduction but i feel it's more immersive than playing as/against CSAT.
There is a showcase mission under Scenarios.
It's my very first addon and i had to speed up the release because i had schedules to meet.
If you experience any problems please let me know.

Update 25/07/2014 (version 0.2)
After so much time i'm giving this mod some restyling now that i have more assets to work on.
I've done several modifications (see changelog for a complete list), however there are a few more relevant than others:
The mod should be now fully compatible with ZEUS;
Both the infantry uniforms had some tweakings in the color;
I added new helmet models to resemble the standard infantry 6B7 ones issued right now;
I added a Machinegunner class with the PKP i released a few days ago;
All in all they have a pretty contemporary feel now.

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:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

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 and/or 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.
