Work in progress

* Spearhead

    Col. Faulkner released two screenshots on BI forums showing the progress of his mod, Spearhead.
    Quote Col. Faulkner:
    The Blankshire Regiment is a fictional regiment (although the name has been used as a placeholder in real British Army documents and ex. briefings for many years). I made up the "Britannia" capbadge worn here (adapted from the real-life WW1-era Norfolk Regiment badge). Some of the 1980s-era Spearhead stuff is now almost finished. I long ago had to read just my expectations about quality but it still looks OK enough to play an ArmA-style wargame with. Certainly not the best, but not the worst either.

    Quote NZDF CRASH:
    Just a few screenshots of our m113s which the NZ Army used from the 60's till late 2003 when the NZLAVIII suceeded them.
    I still have to give it a weathered look and do a few model changes. Am somewhat keen to do a version as shown in the picture below.

    Mandoble announced on the BI forums his Mando Missile ArmA will be brought to ArmA2.
    Quote Mandoble :
    MMA 2.35 conversion to ArmA2 has started. So far it seems the required conversion time will be less than expected while some problems with missing particle types for the smoke trails, launch FX and detonation effects might take more time to get fixed.

* ArmA2 - F-117 Nighthawk

    Fortran released three screenshots and a video on the BI forums showing his F-117.
    Quote Fortran:
    Just been testing a scripted Air-Brake parachute for the F-117A. As you may know the aircraft has no flaps thus making the landing speed very high. This is solved by an automatically deployed braking chute on touchdown. Currently no anims in the chute and no cloth behaviour, two things I need to get worked out (any info?), but the scripted side of it works fairly well. Here is a short video demonstrating it on my test model.
