A RHS: United States Armed Forces only version of my 75th Ranger Regiment faction. It's virtually identical but lacks Military Gear Pack and Specialist Military Arms dependencies and comes with three instead of four factions depicting different Ranger eras. If you want an additional and more contemporary faction, in addition to different weapons, sights and gear across the 2010 and 2014 factions, download my other Ranger faction which can be found in my workshop. Both Ranger mods can be loaded at the same time but you will have duplicates of the 2006, 2010 and 2014 factions so it is recommended that you only have one mod active at the time.
This small addon provides a BLUFOR faction depicting the 75th Ranger Regiment, which is a light infantry special operations force part of the United States Army Special Operations Command. The primary mission of the Regiment is to conduct direct action raids, airfield seizure, special reconnaissance, personnel recovery, clandestine insertion, and site exploitation in hostile or sensitive environments worldwide, often killing or capturing high value targets.
This mod comes with three factions, depicting Rangers from 2006 (UCP camouflage/Ranger Green MBAV), 2010 (Multicam/RG MBAV), and 2014 (Multicam/Multicam MBAV). The 2006 faction is armed with M4A1s, while the 2010 have a mix of M4A1 and M4A1 Block II rifles, and the 2014 faction have a mix of M4A1 Block II and Mk18 rifles. The 2006 and 2010 factions have M9 Beretta as sidearm, whereas the 2014 faction have the Glock 17 as sidearm. Most Rangers also have dual AN/PEQ-15 and flashlight configuration for their primary weapon. The 2006 faction are issued AN/PVS-14 NVGs while the 2010 faction have a mix of AN/PVS-14 and AN/PVS-15 NVGs, and the Rangers of 2014 have AN/PVS-15 NVGs.
Other specialized Rangers, depending on year, carry the M14, M24, M107, M240B, M249, M2010, and the Mk11. Some Rangers have vanilla laser designator and UAV terminal. All Rangers have first aid kits, flashbangs, grenades, smoke grenades, and lightsticks. There are four anti-tank Rangers armed with the M3 MAAWS, M136 AT4, Mk 153 SMAW and the FGM-148 Javelin respectively, and finally there is a UAV Operator in the 2014 faction. There are also Rangers with sound suppressors on their primary weapons, ideal for recon and stealth.
There are a few Arma 3 vanilla vehicles present but named after their real world equivalent, and other vehicles are taken from RHS: USAF. Vehicle selection varies depending on year.
Use “us_army_rangers_rhs_2006”, "us_army_rangers_rhs_2010", and "us_army_rangers_rhs_2014" (without quotes) to use the factions with ALiVE modules, pick the Motorized Infantry and Special Forces categories for ALiVE to draw forces from.
Required addons: Community Based Addons, Release 0.4.4: RHS: United States Armed Forces.
ALiVE is not required.
And finally, a big grateful thank you to @War (wsxcgy on BI Forums) for letting me include his "WS MBAV Extension" in this mod. He retextured the RHS MBAV vests in Ranger Green and Multicam. The vests are included in his "Extra RHS Uniform Re-textures", but I felt there would be too many dependencies if I used that mod with the Ranger configuration files.
To install US Army 75th Ranger Regiment (RHS) 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.

Changed the logo.
Version 1.2 (2018-03-23):
Changed faction names in editor to "RHS standard." No class names changed.
Version 1.1: Resigned all pbos. After an RHS update, most soldiers would spawn with pistol in hand and rifle on back, this has been mitigated by using vanilla soldiers as "parent".
