You do not need to subscribe to this Workshop item if you already own Arma 3 Creator DLC: Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany ("GM").
This Workshop item serves to allow players who wish to participate in multiplayer content containing GM assets (vehicles, weapons, etc.) without the need to buy it. It also allows you to preview and try out the assets in Virtual Arsenal.
After subscribing to this Workshop item and downloading the data, you can visit the "MODS" tab in the Arma 3 Launcher, load the Global Mobilization Compatibility Data, and hit PLAY.
If you are unsure which type of data you are running (this Workshop item or premium), simply hover over the GM icon in Arma 3's in-game menu. If you're running the compatibility data, the icon will say "Public data" and list GM's version after it. If you've purchased GM, the icon will just state GM's current version.
For more information about the restrictions, please check out our blogpost blog about the DLC Strategy for Arma 3
