About the mod:
The mod will add armies fighting in Scandinavia during World War two, including:
- Finnish Army [1939 - 1945] - Winter War, Continuation War and Lapland War,
- Royal Norwegian Army and Navy [1940] - Invasion of Norway,
- Norwegian Ressistance fighters [1940 - 1945] - Occupied Norway,
- Red Army [1939 - 1940] - Winter War,
- Danish Army [1940] - Invasion of Denmark,
- Foreign volounteers - fighting in Finland and Norway

Mod is going to include realistic representations of weaponry, equipment and vehicles used by all the forces listed above, allowing the community to create great scenarios taking place in cold, northern countreis. The development started in November 2017 and with increasing support from community, FWW2 team and Finnish community modders it was possible to create huge variety of assets with custom models, textures, animations and sounds.

To install Northern Fronts - Scandinavia in WW2 - Norwegian Release 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.

Included files:

Known issues:
- Panzerfausts are missing sights and proper animations - this will be added in future updates
