This small addon contains a new version of the Centurion SAM with a 360 degree radar.
The problem with the vanilla Centurion is that it's radar cone is pretty narrow. Only a few degrees. It is only able to detect and so fire at targets within that narrow radar search cone.
With that being said the centurion on its own is quite useless as air defence.
It can be destroyed by anything with a gun if it doesn't randomly manage to find it with that narrow search cone first.
It always needs other radars to detect targets for it and use the data link feature then. For example a SPAAG or the Praetorian.
That way the centurion is pretty much immune to SEAD but vulnerable to other airlaunched packages. But it is also not able to detect a target on its own.
The 360 degree radar Centurion is able to detect targets from any direction and engage them.
The new version of the Centurion is added and does not replace the vanilla one. It is named: Mk21 Centurion MkII.
This addon also contains the SAM and AAA turrets reconfigured for AAF and CSAT as UAVs renamed as:
- Pantsir-S1 -- (Praetorian)
- 9M37 Strela-10M -- (Spartan)
- 9M33M3 OSA -- (Centurion)
- 9M33M4 OSA-N -- (new Centurion)
To install SAM and AAA Config 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.
- renamed Pantsir-S1 to AK-620M since that fits better to a 6-barreled 20 mm gun and the Pantsir is actually a diffrent weapon system
- all new weapon platforms can now be used and placed by Zeus
