Cold War Rearmed III

Cold War Rearmed III is a community project to recreate the experience of the great and unique Cold War Crisis and Resistance campaigns from Operation Flashpoint™ (later known as Cold War Assault).
Our main focus is keeping the atmosphere from the original game, while taking advantage of Bohemia Interactive's modern engine and gameplay enhancements.

Once again, you can witness the confrontation between the Soviet Union and the United States spiraling into a shooting war over the Malden islands, a chain of isles in the middle of nowhere...

Welcome to the third return of the legendary Cold War Rearmed modification!
With this update, Cold War Rearmed III is leaving the beta phase and can be considered complete.

Some things are not 100% perfect, some will be replaced in future updates. And some things are just placeholders for the time being.

Note: Some uniforms and other items are moved from the core Mod to the USMC, VDV and VMF Expansions. This was necessary because in the end there was a huge mess of all kind of items.
So if you're missing an item in an mission or in the editor: Load these Expansions and they should be back.

Missions and campaigns are released as separate workshop items for easier maintenance.

Now, this Mod would not have been possible without:
* The CUP team, which created not only one of the most popular Mods but serve as a base for CWR III.
* 3 Commando Brigade : M939 Trucks and SCUD launcher.
* Basher : OPFOR uniforms, equipment, headgear textures
* Batteriefuhrer : Responsible for most of the unit textures.
* beppe_goodoldrebel : Vests from his '80s pack.
* Bossman : Propaganda material
* ColdWarChris : MERDC and C-130 textures.
* DSabre : Sopwith Camel model and textures.
* EMSI : Sharing his UI config wisdom with us.
* Freddo : Option to enable/disable Spotlight in Addon Options.
* Ghost : Couple of scripts still being used in our missions.
* hcpookie : Proper working MM-1 grenade launcher
* joker006 : Fixed the Trabant and Bus models so they actually work.
* Lakarak : Edited SSh-40 Russian Helmet Model
* lamasutra : Resistance campaig, Scripting.
* lemonium : Desert units and vehicles configuration
* Lorenluke : Improved our Scud launcher script
* max1048 : Soviet equipment meshes (6B3, 6B5, vests)
* maxjoiner : Thank you for supplying us with a working female character.
* MaxPower : Contributing his truly splended AH-1 and Trabant models.
* Mikero : Without his tools, this would be a pile of junk. Seriously.
* Motta : M1 Helmet Model
* Shuko : His Taskmaster script used everywhere.
* sinmercardo : New US Army uniforms
* slatts : Sharing a fair amount of his former Conflict '85 stuff
* Stagler : Models and configs fixing, again and again (usually after I touched them).
* Temon : Thanks for your OFP face textures.
* Tini : Models/Textures
* Trento : Models/Textures
* Urban : Adding/Fixing various vehicle lights.
* vilas : Mini Cooper, Skoda Rapid, UAZ-452, T-64 and furniture models.
* Xeno/Xacino : Soviet uniform (M69, M55/63), equipment, headgear (berets) meshes
* Everyone else we accidently forgot

with the mig-27 you can't lock the target with the camera you just select the target without really lasing it?

Can you also please add more variations of the Belt Kit and M69 harness for the Soviets?

The Soviet helmet has a weird little "bump" in the model that sticks out, kind of at the lower front edge of the helmet. This is some weird graphical error that is only present on some models and not others.

Hi, I was wondering about this "M16A1E1 LSW" weapon the US Autorifleman (M16) has and why it doesn't show up in the arsenal

@W0lle, I did things the ghetto way by deleting all the other files except the ones the Kiowa depends on, and that works. It would be a pain to distribute this mod to my unit without a workshop download. Let me know if you think you can help!
Hugh Mungus Aug 26 @ 11:20am 
@W0lle, Would it be possible to separate the OH-58D into its own mod? All the other mods I've seen don't do it justice. I know this is a long shot, so no sweat if the answer is no. Thank you for the beautiful work y'all have done!
