A total Infantry Armor Overhaul by SonicT and V. Berlioz
This mod is an evolution of SonicT's armor overhaul that introduces over twenty new body armor plates, ranging from entry-level AR500 IIIA plates to the almighty MIL-VIII Ceradyne, which can withstand .50 BMG rounds. All plates from this mod are taken from reality and perform in-line with their real-life counterparts. Some plates, such as the Russian MIL-V through MIL-VII ceramics, are only prototypes that are currently being fielded in the Ukraine Crisis.
For the sake of realism, most vests are reduced to realistic IIIA level, meaning that you will need a plate. All you need to do is grab a plate, and put it inside of your vest's storage.
This mod is designed to work with the ACE3 medical overhaul, meaning that you can now experience the last word on how it feels to get shot!
To install Advanced Armor Plate Mod 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.
Introduced the entire selection of Russian RATNIK-2 plates. These are Spetsnaz-only plates with various qualities.
Introduced a rebalance to the Dragonskin plates, reducing their ability to real-life levels.
Introduced Russian assault sapper plates of MIL-V rating that can withstand back-to-back-to-back impacts.
Introduced a steel version of the aforementioned assault sapper plate.
Made some tweaks to other plates.
Introduced some plates that fit a "black-ops" or 2025-era situation.
Introduced a Russian MIL-VIII plate, a graphene-ceramic "GSAPI" MIL-VI plate, a 2009-era version of the XSAPI, and the Ceradyne/M, which is the first MIL-IX plate.
Did some minor rebalancing tweaks as well.
Gave russian plates realistic index numbers. Introduced the MIL-III rated 6B45 plate for the RHS crowd.
Made some adjustments to plate weight and ability. The SAPI is now lighter than the ESAPI and most Level IV plates have been brought down to better compare against the ESAPI.
The XSAPI has been slightly buffed.
Introduced Level V Dragonskin armor, just in case you felt like the MIL-V variety was not enough.
Plenty more changes. I will likely send out one more update that introduces uniform armor and then I'll let the mod be.
