In PlannedAssault's terrain database, the Isla Duala terrain has been updated to reflect the latest revision of the island. IceBreakr, in version 1.95 of his island, expanded Bolabongo city with a new suburb (Dendala) and additional roads. The island offers a detailed and varied taste of Africa. All screen shots of this update except the last two have been captured at Isla Duala.
With help (again) from Pachira, we've added the following factions to the unit database (for Arma2:OA and Arma2:CO): Takistani Militia (OPFOR, fighting alongside the Takistani Army), Takistani Guerrilla forces (BLUFOR insurgents) and Ion Inc. private military company (PMC, both as BLUFOR and OPFOR - they're contractors after all).
In addition, the unit database has been extended with new units from the Dutch Armed Forces mod. In particular, the 'luchtmobiele brigade' (air manoeuvre brigade) and ATGM assistants carrying spare Spike missiles.
|2012-10-23||Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star and desert MARPAT US Marines (A2, A2:CO)|
Two more unit database updates, thanks to Pachira. First, from Arma2's campaign, the Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star, a communist revolutionary organization also known as the ChDKZ. The ChKDZ rebels use Soviet equipment mixed with newer Russian equipment, and put red banners and stars on their vehicles.
The second addition consists of Schnapsdrosel's desert MARPAT (reskins) of the Arma2 Marines. They are great for operations on the desert maps for Arma2 and Arma2:OA.
|2012-10-11||Chernarus Defence Forces (A2, A2:CO) and modern Dutch Armed Forces (A2:CO)|
The Chernarus Defence Forces have been absent until now, since I prefer adding real world units with matching real-life TO&E over adding fictitious forces. However, thanks to Pachira, the unit database now features the Chernarus Defence Forces. They are organized as NATO formations using Warsaw Pact equipment.
Today's other addition is the Dutch Armed Forces mod, which offers modern day Dutch forces including infantry, special forces, trucks, armor, and aircraft. The add-on replaces some stand-alone add-ons offering specific Dutch units or vehicles.
