    I'd pay up more for at least the addition of simple rifle sights( a"pointer" would do) and a trigger for the  rifles as well as sights and triggers for at least some AT/RPG weapon

    It would be incredible. Don't even care about 3d anything. Give me a white reticle and we'll be good.


  2. You and a few others seem to think that I'm wishing for a full fidelity infantry simulation experience, akin to VBS or ArmA, or maybe one of those $60 shooter games that EA or Activision shits out every other year - or at least that my expectation is that SB becomes or does something that it wasn't designed to be or do.

     

    You're still getting my $40. You have been since 2007 and you will continue to do so until the lights go out.

    About 14 vehicles and vehicle families, but that sounds more spectacular than it actually is.

    Those that are crewable?

    DF30 and the DF90 that fully fall into that category, and then one new remote weapon station. I must confess, I'm beginnning to lose overview, so there may be one or two more that I'd consider "true" crewable vehicles

    or? That was really confusing...

     

     

    Maybe my question wasn't clear?

     

    How many of the vehicles in the picture that you posted will allow me to jump into the gunner seat (doesn't matter how complete the interior or FCS is) and pull a trigger?

    I can answer that now:

    Disclaimer: These four km² full of new vehicles are partially based on a single vehicle with several equipment options, or a vehicle family with its variants. And there are a handful of vehicles that you already have in 4.0, but with significant changes that deserve some explanation. Also, at least two vehicles have the wrong tactical icon. And I made one mistake, confusing an MBT with an IFV in the picture above.

    How many of these are crewable?

    Really looking forward to using the DF 90

    We already have the Centauro (105mm wheeled). It doesn't seem like there's much of a difference in capabilities. Unless I'm missing something, please fill me in.

    +1 on all the above. I also would like to order Proceed to from the 3D view or the TC/Gunner views and not only from the map as you may know where each route takes you, especially with EPLRS installed in the A2. Btw, love your Jägdgeschwader 52 logo. Il-2 fanboy!

    Try the C button?

    the lack of fire control system for modern vehicles does not suffice there for a modern afv sim

    ArmA 3 has had fire control systems modelled since 2016.

    They couldn't even move in formation

    AI is the Achilles heel of ArmA.

     

    It's where SB blows ArmA out of the water. If SB had playable riflemen then I would uninstall ArmA forever.

    Looks very promising. Hope that they could fix Arma 3's lame high command system, or at least made it possible to get vehicles to properly move in formation.

    I wish. 

     

    I don't think the HC module was ever fully finished.

     

    If only ArmA had SB AI.


  10. New Arma DLC: Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany

    For those who can't click:

     

    Willkommen! It's time for you to return to the Cold War. With its bombastic amounts of new original content, the Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany Creator DLC for Arma 3 invites you to live and breathe the military conflict between the two Germanies in the 1980s. Ride into armored combat against a determined enemy that easily outnumbers you. Experience warfare from the perspective of infantry reinforced with APCs. Or breach the historic inner German border to force the enemy’s hand in battle. Which side of the wall will you fight for? Besides the West and East German armies, this DLC pack also includes Denmark as a smaller but viable military faction.

     

    Key Features

    Weferlingen Terrain
    Located in the northern plains of Germany, Weferlingen offers the largest Arma terrain released so far: 419 square kilometers of usable area. It's modeled after a real-world location in 1983, and uses entirely new assets – providing you with a unique experience that gives Arma 3 an entirely fresh look and feel. Explore nearly 50 fully destructible settlements in both West and East Germany, prepare your ambushes from scattered wooded areas, or have tanks battle each other at great distances on farmland – with each presenting its own major challenges. The Weferlingen terrain is also available in a special winter variant. After all, the Cold War should stay cold. Each of the available multiplayer scenarios can be played on this version of the terrain as well. In addition, be sure to check out the terrain’s largest dominating feature: the inner German border – a part of the famous Iron Curtain that was faithfully recreated using formerly classified documents. As a result, the Weferlingen terrain lets you take Arma 3 and turn it into a digital museum.

    Just give me a 120mm rifled gun, some Dorchester armour, slap it on a 30 year old chassis and I will see off any iTank! (it probably will need an OS update before firing its gun anyway!)

    Unfortunately, warfare is no longer that simple. 

     

    Even non-state actors have adapted fairly well to attacking along all domains of a now multi-domain battlefield. 

     

    Some of the biggest threats are no longer visible and dont directly effect the battlefield.
