Fireteam Zulu, formerly known as Article 2 Declassified, is a mod created to accompany Article 2 Studios' Operation: Trebuchet (OPTRE). The original sole purpose for A2D was to create higher quality and more diverse textures for units to use as they battled either the Insurrectionists or even the Covenant. Using what's been given to us in Operation Trebuchet, as well as inspiration from the Halo community, we were able to create something truly unique. Today, Fireteam Zulu aims to make interactive gameplay within your unit, or even just your singleplayer scenario, more immersive and more fun.
Fireteam Zulu now not only incorporates our new high definition textures into your missions, but we also add new and exciting features such as Side Mounted Machineguns on your Falcons and Back Mounted Machineguns on your Pelicans. Though, that's not where we cross the line. The new and improved A2D allows your pilots to drop supplies down from high altitudes without worry of what's to become of it when it hits the ground at raging speeds. Using our Pelicans, you can drop vehicles from 200 meters and above to apply a parachute to it as it falls, thus making quick resupplies much safer.
Due to the developers' use of their own mod, some other small adaptations have been made to accompany the new armor sets that have rolled out in our latest updates. ECH252s are now equipped with CH252D standard Heads Up Displays or HUDs. Not only that, all helmets that are sealed or closed off are now also compatible with the Chemical Warfare mod. Luckily for everyone, this is not a requirement of Fireteam Zulu at all, only some lines to make them work together if you wish to make the situation a little more requiring of its players.
Ever get shot at by some of those nasty Innies and wonder, "If only I had a mounted M247 Tripod on my back like the Marine from Halo 2," or even, "A great way to start off this mission would be to load everyone into a Bumblebee Lifeboat and launch them across the map?" Well boy have I got some news for you. Not only can you find Deployable M247T Backpacks in your average arsenal using Fireteam Zulu, you can also get ahold of some UNSC Standard Issue Deployable (Respawn) Tents! Oh, the Bumblebee? Try placing one of Zulu's Bumblebee Lifeboats and hopping in the pilot's seat. You can thank us later.
To install A2 Declassified: Fireteam Zulu 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.
