In 2009 the fictional post-soviet country of Chernarus is ravaged by civil war. For two crippling years, conflict has raged... Players explore this volatile world with Force Recon Razor Team, part of a US Marine Corps Expeditionary Unit. The 27th MEU are deployed to Northern Chernarus on a peacekeeping mission with a mandate to prevent further civilian casualties and promote political stability. ARMA 2 is based on the latest generation technology. It offers a uniquely vast game world, authentic and extremely detailed modern units, weapons, vehicles and environments. The branching, player-driven campaign can be played solo, or cooperatively and is accompanied by a huge range of single and multiplayer game modes. ARMA 2 is a hardcore military simulator that allows the player to carry out the many different roles of a soldier in combat zones. Its campaign takes place in the 225 square-kilometre fictional ex-soviet state of Chernarus where a bloody conflict is taking place.
This addon grants the CDF, Russia and the Takistani Army factions access to more variants of the Mi-24 Hind.
The textures and models used by these variants are already present in the game - e.g. the CDF Mi-24V and Mi-24P in this mod use the CDF Mi-24D textures, and the models from the Russian Mi-24V and Mi-24P.
The point of this is that each of the Mi-24 variants have access to different weapon load-outs, plus the Mi-24P has a side mounted cannon rather than the Mi-24D & Mi-24V nose cannon. If these changes could have been done in the editor with scripts then I wouldn't have bothered, but they can't - thus this addon adds the extra variants. This is my first ARMA 2 mod, apologies if this has already been done elsewhere, I couldn't find it when searching Google and a number of ARMA 2 modding sites.
