Mods and units added:

  • ACEX US Army units, with custom US Army artillery units (as shown in the trailer)
  • CH Abrams M1 Abrams US Army and USMC tanks
  • Southy's F-15C/E Eagle fighters


Bugs/issues solved:
  • artillery mission scripts robust against leader dieing on initialization
  • Arma 2 artillery module initializating a combination of empty guns and a separate gun crew group (A2 artillery module assumes leader and gun both present at mission start)
  • player as gunner role for single vehicle groups
  • defensive behavior redesigned to use guard waypoints and triggers for more aggressive behavior


The planner and website have been upgraded to versions 1.08 and 1.21 respectively.
