About ArmaProject

Arma Project — is a player community 18+ that was created for hosting team-based tactical games that imitate real-life armed conflicts through the use of modern technical means

The project aims to achieve interesting, tactically coordinated plays of already created missions

One life per mission, first-person only, no bots, realistic camouflage, armament and vehicles


Games run on their own assembly of mods for ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead, based on Advanced Combat Environment 2 (Complicates ballistics, adds many weapons, equipment, artillery, etc.), many additional islands (Napf, Winter Cherno and Vostok, Caribou, Emita, Fallujah, Fata , Isla Duala, Franken, Zernovo, Isola Di Capraia, Lingor, Celle, Panthera, Queshkibrul, Sahrani, Thirsk, Spritzisland, etc.), many additional mods (RHS, weapons, vehicles, uniforms, various features, etc.), and also a radio exchange mod. The game on the project is very different from vanilla ArmA 2, adding realism, simulator and complicated model of ballistics / weapons / equipment.

Arma Project Games (APG)
Main event — Arma Project Games (APG) runs on Fridays and Saturdays from 21:00 Moscow time (GMT+3).
There are 2-3 missions for 100-220 slots; confrontation between two sides (red and blue), which consist of 3-8 detachments with their own commanders and structures; the parties prepare in advance for the mission: they plan their actions, arrangement, tasks, etc. Each mission takes between 30 minutes and 2.5 hours.

mini Arma Project (mAP)
These are small missions with less severity than the APG. There are no fixed sides or preparation here. Any players occupy slots according to the rules and wait for the start for the briefing. Next, players are assigned to channels (usually the red side is in the "RED" channel and the blue players in the "BLUE" channel; squad leaders gather in the "HQ_mAP" and "ШТАБ_mAP" channels to discuss the mission plan).

Dimitri, because Arma 3 already has similar projects, we are satisfied with Arma 2 for many reasons (each has its own)
