This pack contains factions for the Cold War.
-US Military BLUFOR-
This is a representation of a joint Army-Marines combat unit from the US military featuring camo patterns and vehicles and gear from 1980s up to the early 2000s but not really time-specific.
-Red Army OPFOR-
This is a representation of the soviet Red Army, featuring most soviet designed vehicles and gear from the 1980s to the late 1990s
-Yugosvakian Army OPFOR-
This is a fictional country obviously inspired by Yugoslavia. It features serbian camoflage and gear designs and M70 rifles aswell as soviet designed vehicles.
-Czechoslavian Army INDFOR-
This is a fictional country obviously inspored by Czechoslovakia. It features olive drab uniforms and old western gear designs along with vz58 rifles and soviet vehicles.
Each faction is different, featuring different unique gearsets.
My biggest inspiration for this mod was my interest for the cold war. I've always thought it was an interesting situation. There are some excellent games about it like the glorious Operation Flashpoint Cold War Assault, father to the Arma series but cold war RTS games are what caught my attention for the most part, for example, the Balkan Army faction was inspired by the Entente alliance from Wargame Red Dragon, my favourite RTS game which I definitely recommend. The Red Army infantry was also inspired by an RTS game, this time it was World in Conflict Soviet Assault, yet another great game which I hold in high regard, since it was one of my childhood games. Another factor that helped get this mod off the ground was a movie that recently came out and drew my attention to the Balkan States, called "Renegades", a movie about a group of Navy SEALs trying to capture 27 tons of stolen Nazi gold sunken into a river in Yugoslavia during the war in the balkans in 1995. Similar movies like "Behind Enemy Lines" portray the same conflict pretty well.
To install D4S Cold War Conflict 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.

License / Disclaimer:
I have not made any of these models, textures or model retextures. All credit goes to @war and the RHS Team. I simply made classes and factions with the gear they provided. This mod would have never taken off without them. Additionally, even though this is a mod that fits a specific time period, some gear may not correspond to what was available at the time and due to the unavailability of said gear in the RHS mods and Vanilla gear, therefore I had to take liberties such as issuing M16A4s instead of M16A2s. I ask that you try to understand.

-replacement of the SMAW with Carl Gustav in the US faction
