US Air Force 24th Special Tactics Squadron (RHS)


This small addon provides a BLUFOR faction inspired by the US Air Force's 24th Special Tactics Squadron, the Air Force component of the Joint Special Operations Command. The operators are highly trained to conduct clandestine operations like direct action, counter-insurgency, hostage rescue and special reconnaissance. The 24th STS is the Air Force's Tier One unit, equivalent to the US Army's Delta Force or the US Navy's Special Warfare Development Group.

If you subscribe to my US Special Operations Command (All in One/RHS)-mod you do not need to download this faction, it is included in my all in one mod.

The mod comes with one faction in Multicam and LBT 6094 vests. Most Airmen are armed with HK416 rifles in different configurations, with the Glock 17 as sidearm. Other specialized Airmen carry the M14, M24, M107, M240, M249, and the Mk11. Some Airmen have the vanilla laser designator and UAV terminal, and every Airman also has a single IR Grenade, in addition to a BluFor transponder, first aid kits, flashbangs, light sticks, grenades, and smoke grenades. There are four anti-tank Airmen armed with the FGM-148 Javelin, M3 MAAWS, M136, and the Mk-153 SMAW respectively, and one UAV Operator is equipped with the Raven UAV. There is also a Special Operations Weather Technician with a satellite console backpack. And finally there are Airmen with sound suppressors on their primary weapons, ideal for recon and stealth, and there are also several Para Jumpers.

I've taken creative liberties with the faction.

There are a few Arma 3 vanilla vehicles present but named after their real world equivalent, and other vehicles are taken from RHS: USAF.

Use “usaf_24th_sts_rhs” (without quotes) to use the faction with ALiVE modules, and use the Motorized Infantry and Special Forces categories for ALiVE to draw forces from.

Required addons: Community Based Addons, Release 0.4.5: RHS: United States Armed Forces.
Required DLC: Marksmen DLC (if you intend to use the Combat Controller's Remote Designator).

A gratefull thank you to Mr. H who allowed me to incorporate his MRH Satellite-mod with the faction which gives the player a deployable satellite backpack from where the player can access a satellite controle console. I give no support for the mod, and any questions should be directed to Mr. H. The Steam page for his mod where you can find further information on how to use the satellite is here:

As of February 1, 2018, Road Runner's Arma 3 mods will cease to be available as his addon making is over, but he allowed anyone who wished to host his mods to do so. I double checked if I could use his mods with my factions and he allowed me to do that, so a big grateful thank you to Road Runner for allowing me to do that.

I (GrizzlyBear83) will leave NO support for the mods sans my configuration files as I've not made the mods. There will be some clipping here and there, but I did my best to use vests and helmets that offered little to no clipping. You will also notice some clipping between the Glock pistols and holster on RoadRunner's LBT 6094 vests.

ALiVE is not required.

To install US Air Force 24th Special Tactics Squadron (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.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
