I've been a PC gamer since the 90's with classics such as C&C:RA and Unreal. These days I spend most my time developing mods for various games with my most recent project being 'FUEL: REFUELED' for the game FUEL. I'm primarily a programmer, but occasionally partake in minor texture and mapping work also. You can see some of my active and past projects via links from this profile.
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.

This mod requires Combined Operations (ARMA2 + ARMA2 Operation Arrowhead) to run. Simply extract the '@HIND' folder from the zip and place in your ARMA2 OA directory. Then set the launch options with this command:
