CBA: Community Based Addons for Arma 3
Current version: 3.8.0
What does the name Community Base Addons mean? It is a system that:
  • Offers a range of features for addon-makers and mission designers.
  • Aims to have community wide acceptance and to be used as much as possible by community addons to maintain compatibility.
  • The community is very much encouraged to request or submit functionality.
  • The most obvious example would be to submit functions to be included in the CBA function library.
Full documentation is available at GitHub[]

Licensed Under GPLv2
Any addon which calls CBA-defined functions need not be licensed under the GPLv2
or released under a free software license. Only if you are directly including CBA code
in your addon's binarized PBO or redistributing a modified version of CBA itself would
your work be considered derivative and therefore be legally required to be released under
the terms of the GPL. (And there's no reason to ever do either of these.)

Hey CBA bois can you please make the 6.5 suppressor model for all weapons? I Really want one for maybe the sting and TRG, the current suppressors for those are horrible imo.

Or is there a way i can do it myself and change the model files to be the same for both, just different stats, or is that dangerous for the game itself?

Guys, use CBA from Github or their site (either one I think, not sure) instead of this!
