|2013-09-09||US Military Units from the '80s, '90s and early '00s, AH-64D block II (Arma2CO)|
With Delta Hawk's US Military Mod (80s, 90s), the Arma2 community is given the means to create virtually any US Army soldier or USMC marine for the 1985-2003 time frame. Fictitious battles in 1985 Germany or 1999 Kosovo, or historic battles in 1983 Grenada, 1989 Panama, 1991 Iraq, 2001 Afghanistan, or 2003 Iraq can be now be recreated as Arma2 missions.
The add-on comes with soldier, marines in 80 and 90 load bearing vests, with and without flak jackets, and in woodland and various desert camouflage uniforms, all modeled in great detail.
Based on these soldiers and configuration options, I have defined for PlannedAssault's unit database the fire teams, platoon HQs, TOW teams, Bradley dismount squads, mortar and howitzer crews, full size light infantry squads, etc. for the theaters listed above.
Additionally, I've combined empty Arma2 USMC vehicles and Arma2OA army vehicles with crews from the "US Military Mod (80s, 90s)" into vehicles manned by a crew matching the theater and era. See the 2003 USMC TOW HMMWV screen shot for an example. With these properly crewed motorized and mechanized units available here in PlannedAssault's editor, creating great missions for the '80s and '90s has become easier.
Also the "AH-64 Apache Longbow" add-on, by NodUnit and Franze, betters the BI original models with detail and configuration options. For their AH-64D block II Apache, I've made available "anti-tank", "covering" and "escort" variants, either normal or long-range (fuel tank), with the laser-guided or fire-and-forget Hellfire missiles.
