NLD Units

Lowlands Tactical

NLD_Units, a mod that adds Dutch units to ArmA 3 in several delicious flavours! With over 30 units with 11 different camouflages accompanied by the necessary items and backpacks this mod adds over a massive 300 new classes to the game!

To summarize what this mod adds:
- Multiple infantry units coming with different camo's like: Woodland, Desert, Winter, Jungle, NFP-Tan, NFP-Green, UN-Woodland and UN-Desert
- Special Forces members coming in Black, MTP & KM
- Wheeled Vehicles coming in Woodland, Winter and Desert
- Armored Vehicles coming in Woodland and Desert
- Air Vehicles Armed & Unarmed
- Support Vehicles with crew

The units for now are (with a lack of 3D artists) reskins of BIS Units based on what we could find about our armed forces. As some may have figured out, it's been a while since our last release.
As of now I am the only one left to maintain this mod, and with some free time I managed to do a sizable update, but the releases won't be very often or very big anymore due to work and social stuff etc.
It's also for this reason we feel the best way to ensure the mod stays in working order is for to make use of dependencies which was against our original goal.
We are still open to suggestions and contributions in any way!

To install the NLD Units you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Known issues:
Raven returns script error first time after exiting screen.

- We have decided to have CUP_Weapons as a dependency as our newly introduced NLD_Units_OPFOR mod also uses these weapons. Secondly it's also a lot easier for when Cup has it's own updates.
- Dutch Aviation Emergency Services can be found under Civilian
- There is a F16C CAS AI version, which can be used for Alive Combat Support. This vehicle includes all the normal weapons
- It's not needed to download the F16C model and the EC135 model as they are included in this version
- With permission we've included several mods, so If you use Aplions HAFM EC635 and NH90, Firewills F-16 stand-alone in your modpack, this might conflict with this mod.
- This mod is made to run in ArmA3 vanilla, adding mods like ACE3 or other mods can change the experience and loadout of this mod (although it shouldn't matter).
