This mod includes additional equipment and enhances to existing equipment for the OPTRE mod.
VTOL hornet variant, complete with reworked HUD and pylon system.
All hornets now have a pilot camera and laser designator. All of them also contain a pylon system.
M41 SSR, aka SPNKR, now is one launcher. Contains new missile types, such as SALH, Thermal, and dumbfire.
M6 G/GNR, aka spartan laser, added as a launcher. Currently still a WIP, but is functional.
To install Operation: Arsenal Expansion for OPTRE 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.
