New Arma DLC: Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany Link: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1042220/Arma_3_Creator_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. 42 Vehicles & Vehicle Variants Pitting the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) against the German Democratic Republic (East Germany), you will encounter 42 new vehicle assets on the battlefield: West Germany KPz 1A1A1 and KPz 1A3 Main Battle Tanks M113 series of tracked Armoured Personnel Carriers in various roles TPz 1 series of wheeled Armoured Personnel Carriers in various roles FlakPz 1A1 Self Propelled Anti Aircraft platform BPz 2A0 recovery tank 0.5t Truck as fast attack vehicle and transporter 2t Truck in transport, medical and supply variants 5t Truck in transport and support roles 10t Truck heavy transporter K125 Motorcycle East Germany T-55A Main Battle Tank BMP-1 SP2 tracked Armoured Personnel Carrier SPW-60 series of wheeled Armoured Personnel Carriers in various roles SPW-40 scout vehicle and command post variant ZSU-23-4V1 Self Propelled Anti Aircraft platform Truck 5 series in transport, tractor and supply variants Truck 5 Mp series in three support roles Civilian P601, a car produced in East Germany (also available as police patrol) Typ 1200, a car produced in West Germany (also available as police patrol) Bicycle 21 Weapons Carry 21 timeless classic weapons (including weapon variants) into battle: West Germany G3 Battle Rifle and variants MG3 Machine Gun MP2A1 Submachine Gun PzF 44 Anti Tank Rocket Launcher PzF 84 Heavy Anti Tank Rocket Launcher Anti Tank Guided Missile Launcher P1 Handgun P2A1 Flare Gun East Germany KM-72 (East German-made AK-47) Assault Rifle and variants AK-74 Assault Rifle and variants RPK Light Machine Gun RPK-74 Light Machine Gun PKM Machine Gun RPG-7 Anti Tank Rocket Launcher Fagot Anti Tank Guided Missile Launcher PM Handgun LP-1 Flare Gun All of the relevant optics and binoculars are also included.

To make the experience of Cold War Germany even more immersive, the DLC also includes 8 voices for the new German radio protocol. 10-Mission Singleplayer Campaign “State Scarlet” Witness a fierce battle over the inner German border from two different perspectives: Pvt. Klemmer, a draftee in West German military, and Sgt. Brandt, the leader of his Leopard 1 tank platoon. Developed by people with real-world military experience, "State Scarlet” is designed to quench your thirst for Cold War military action with authentic combat operations, which sometimes overlap to show how the battle develops. This singleplayer campaign is fully voiced in German (with optional English subtitles). 17 Multiplayer Scenarios To ignite the Cold War right away, you and your friends can choose from 13 co-operative scenarios and 4 adversarial game modes. This includes a not-so-classic deathmatch mode called “Fashion Police”, in which teams can quickly change based on the clothing you wear. ABOUT THE DEVELOPERS The Arma 3 Creator DLC: Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany was created by Vertexmacht – a tight-knit team of developers who have poured thousands of hours into what can only be described as a true labor of love. Drawing from their experience as developers in the game industry, respected members of the Arma modding community since 2001, and veterans of military service, this project has been tailored specifically to the strengths of Arma 3 and the needs of its awesome community.
There are a number of SB players playing ArmA. Not sure when or which groups they are playing with, but an open offer that Kanium plays ArmA on Sunday at 1600 GMT. If you or your group is interested in linking up, just get in contact with us and we can get you in, or coordinate for a joint-VU operation. We are currently fielding one full tank platoon as well as a full mechanized infantry section. Our playstyle is exactly the same as SB, with a focus on coordination and teamwork.
Just thought a dedicated thread for this type of gameplay would be usefull since some of us play FPS, or for anybody else who may be interested in tactical shooters. I for one is slowly catching up with Arma III with Kanium VU, and on my own refreshing some good memories with Rainbow Six Seige from the days I played Rainbow Six Raven Shield and Ghost Recon with the Seawolves community some light years ago! Squad from Project Reality, Insurgency Sandstorm, and Escape from Tarkov, to name a few are making there way in the FPS scene, plus others not out yet will sure give us plenty of talk. Aside from also playing The Division, a RPG FPS title, I find that Rainbow Six Seige and The Division have really made a excelent come-back from there fatal debut, which gives fans and UBISoft some credit. Unfortunately Ghost Recon Wildlands has not had that good fortune, at least not yet. Rumors of a new Ghost Recon title are in the air but will have to wait and see what happens. Most of the UBISoft Tom Clancy titles are being keept alive via season passes and DLC´s, but one should not think it´s a bad thing, as you also have the option to keep grinding in-game which dosent take long if you have the standard edition. Actually UBISoft Montreal has changed it´s marketing and because of that, and the fact that they have also fixed alot of left behind issues, has brought back to life these titles and regained it´s original fans, and some new ones too. In a nutshell, some good things are happening with Tom Clancy titles and others in the pipeline. Feel free to post your thoughts and findings with these and other titles if you so wish. Team Rainbow must stand ready! As "RedOneAlpha2112" on UPlay. Red
