Arma 3 Jets and Tanks DLC



So good you have to watch it twice!


Arma is a funny game for me. I’ve had it for ages over various itterations, but i don’t spend much time on it. But when i do, like last, i always say to myself…

“what a great fun game!”

LOL…well, I was trying to link to the two different segments of the video - one for the jets, one for the tanks…thinking people would quit watching after the first part…

Fast jets in Arma 3 are kinda…well…I’m not a fan…

Unless they put arma on a map the size of the caucuses


Not the size of the map, it’s how you use it.

Arma 3 (and Arma games in general), are implicitly built around Infantry. Vehicles exist, but they exist to deepen the experience of infantry combat. Generally I don’t bother with fast jets for reasons listed above, but man, when they’re used correctly…

One of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while was trying to take a town on Altis with a couple of guys. A fac had established himself in good view point, and was in constant communication with another guy in a Super Hornet. They methodically wrecked enemy strong points and armor as we pushed through the remaining infantry. It was magical.

Anything that makes that easier or more immersive isn’t a bad thing.

Well there goes my sarcastic comment because I thought that they both started from the start. I was wrong :slight_smile:

I have never been a fan because of the arcade flight model. I know that the jets are meant to be a tertiary support asset for the ground troops but the way it is implemented just makes it too gamey for me. Imagine my disappointment when I saw the Grippen and the hope I felt that they had addressed some of the insane flight model choices!

Sad panda.

After the F111 !!!

Yeah, I’m with Beach on this. Fast jets in ArmA? Nope. Of course, I’m still playing ArmA2.

ArmA3 looks fun, but as a single player kind of gamer, it’s probably not going to work out for me.

Is the whole Arma 3 single player campaign actually complete now? I don’t even know…

I’m pretty sure it is. I think there’s 3 chapters and they’re all done.

I have to admit I haven’t watched the progress. I didn’t want to start the first one until all of them were done so that I’d have some continuity…

It’s been done for going on three years.

FWIW, I loved the campaing.
I only wish I was more proficient…

Personally, I’d like to see more features and work done with the “High Command” aspects of the game.
