What is East Wind Rearmed?
East Wind Rearmed is a project that aims to re-imagine the factions provided to us by Bohemia Interactive in Arma 3 with a variety of more contemporary assets, chiefly from Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany by Vertexmacht and RHS Escalation by Red Hammer Studios. Taking inspiration from real world, modern day equivalents, while also attempting to stay relatively true to the factions as BIS imagined them, East Wind Rearmed will add new factions complete with vehicles, statics, groups, and a variety of gear items. The objective is bringing the factions back to the 2010s rather than the 2030s, while still working more or less within the setting provided by Bohemia Interactive.
Taking cues from the real world Hellenic Armed Forces, Cypriot National Guard, and the Armed Forces of Malta, this rework of the AAF sees them assume a variety of surplus European military equipment. The main camouflage uniform of the AAF is an indigenous digital camouflage, simply referred to as "Digi", however there remains many older Greek-styled "Lizard" pattern uniforms in the inventory. Their main combat rifle is the G3 Battle Rifle, however some specialized units are equipped with some G36 and F2000 carbines, and covering fire comes primarily from MG3 Machine Guns. The force is comprised of mechanized infantry mostly utilizing M113A1 APCs, motorized infantry utilizing Unimog and MAN trucks, light infantry, raider forces, and conscript infantry. The Air Wing operates UH-1H and CH-47 utility helicopters, a few C130 transport aircraft, and a handful of ex-Czech JAS-39 and L-159 light fighters. Having received equipment from both NATO and former WARPAC members, the AAF's equipment can be a bit of a mixed bag.
