      The basic variation of the nato gear is in, working moderately well, weighting needs tweaking (as per norm) mostly to the right arm, you can probably see it, and there will be some model updates in the future, this one will probably be rehashed as the AAF gear. even though i prefer this look, obviously once the combat shirt has been textured properly it'll look better.
      The model was modified to make it look like she was wearing a compression bra, in 2030-whatever it's a uniform requirement, so while she does have breasts, they aren't big, sorry guys!
      The boots are using a rough self made texture, I can't live with only one Magnum Elite Spider variation in the game (big Magnum fan).
      There will be a lot of camo variations available, from CSAT hex camo (I hope) to USMC MARPAT.

Arma 3 - RKSL 3: SAAB JAS-39C Gripen

    RKSL-Rock informed the community about the SAAB JAS-39C Gripen he has been working on.

      Quote :
      Created at the end of the cold war and sharing a lot of features of the Typhoon and Rafale, the Gripen is the much cheaper cousin. It may cost less but it is arguably almost as capable. Which makes it almost perfect for balancing the Resistance forces against NATO and Former Soviet-bloc or the newer Chinese aircraft.

      When I first started this model it was as a distraction. I had just spend nearly 4 weeks solid developing the HUDs and MFDs of the Typhoon. I need a break from coding and testing. This was it.

      Oringally I was going to use it fro the IAP Government Air Force but as we developed the IAP story line it just did not fit in. We toyed with the idea that South Africa would be leading the ASA (OPFOR) for a while and discounted that pretty quickly. Just too contentious really so its technically "homeless" for the moment.

      I am proud to finally get this add-on up and going. It is still heavy WIP but I will try to keep this thread updated. This first page will contain all info, and future updated info so check it first, feel free to provide feedback within the thread though . Alright I have heavily modified A2 samples, and hopefully won't be able to tell upon release. The 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment is responsible for various support operations of Special Forces personnel, including transport, resupply, CAS, direct action and more. They are some of the best pilots and helo aircraft in the world. Now to the good stuff.

      - Aircraft features will be subject to change but will include:
      * Heavily Updated Models, Sounds, Updated A3 Flight Mechanics(upon Helo DLC release), etc
      * Advanced radar, countermeasures, FLIR, terrain avoidance radar(displayed on HUD), targeting systems for various weapons, AI friendly fastroping, sling loading, updated textures, fire from vehicle, and much more!
      * Full Service Menu (Thanks to Saul and John_Spartan) will include arming various weapon platforms including rocket pods, M230 chain gun, AT/AA missiles, fuel pods, and more. Will also be able to equip/unequip pilot doors and refueling probe.
      * My goal is to equip full CAAS digital cockpit, we will see
      * Other features such as Holo sights equipped to aircraft miniguns, possible IR lasers(may be limited by game engine), rotor rpm "flex", custom seat anims, and much more.
      * Will also include an organic MQ1 UAV, which will possess its own scripts and features(stay tuned)
