Description

Hey man, I think it'd be really sweet if there could be a version of this mission made where the main group of players are Russian. I had a look at the pbo's to see if I could do it myself but I think it's quite beyond me :(

Sounds good and instead of OPFOR as insurgents, it would be RESISTANCE (which would make even more sense).

Maybe some time.

At disposition for anyone to work on.

Russians are from Arma 2 Vanilla. In order to have russians you would have to require the clients to run Combined Ops. The only other options are what is included in Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead.

These would are the current available factions in OA.

-Czech Republic (I have made this version already i.e. ACR). Note: No medics.
-German Army. Note: G36 rifle bug. No faction vehicles.
-Taksitan Army. Note: This is the closest to Russian forces other than ACR. I would have to change OPFOR vehicles to the Guerilla side and give them pickups. The INS vehicles look exactly like the OPFOR ones.
-United Nations. Note: No Medics. Poor wheeled ground vehicle choices. I could use the m113 instead, etc.
-United States Army. Current version.
-British Armed Forces. Current version.
-Private Military Company.

Other than ACR (Army of the Czech Republic,) the Takistani Army vs. the Takistani Guerrillas/Insurgents seems to be your best option for OA only clients.

Sounds like a good deal. The other good option would be, to make an Insurgency version which works with A2 Vanilla/Free (e.g. Russians vs. Chedakis).

That's a kewl idea. I haven't fooled around with arma4free but I do have Vanilla. Can it run the OA maps and missions? I doubt it.

Updated by Fireball almost 4 years ago

No, A2Free can run all A2 vanilla stuff without mods.

I GOOFED!
There is no Takistani army. All Takistani insurgents are listed as side GUERR (or CIV) and so is the UN-CDF (GUERR.) The only OA option is ACR (WEST). Now if we did Combined Ops classes then we could use Russian (EAST) or CDF (WEST).

NVM I found more classes here. So maybe it can be done. I need to verify their sides tho.

Not bad work and translation :)? but many little mistakes in mission (BTR Oo, wrong MHQ). We have in plans self ver for 0.82 with ACE+ACRE&RU ;) We wait a 1.60b patch, and after realise we continue develop Ins...
Спасибо за труды) неплохая работа, но у нас запланированная своя версия РУС+АСЕ+AKRE с критическими правками и нововведениями!
Dont worry, i promise create RU Ins ;)

Updated by StasMango over 3 years ago

I would want to work with you above this.
P.S. BTR instead of the helicopter, is not too bad. We with the gays are sometimes used it. Helicopter stood without the work.

Я бы хотел поработать с вами над этим.
P.S. БТР вместо вертолета, к стати, не так уж плохо. Мы с ребятами иногда ипользуем его. Вертолет же стоял без работы.

About BTR and other Armored and trucked vehilces, Insurgency it's more closecombat tactical team work!
BTR and Bradley so much more(i try play with heavy vehicles - broke gameplay), but maby we disscuss about this and add variable to switch On/Off special vehicles! But if you wish, you can put BTR or some other tank in your personal version later ;)

- Propose for enemyes AI soldiers and vehicles set! :)
