Now hosted here on Steam Workshop, this 14-year old mod is celebrating it's 5th update (echo) for Arma 3.
It is a full conversion mod for Arma 3, featuring 12 maps, 12 factions, 130 weapons, 1000 uniforms, 11 tanks, 20 trucks, 16 jets, 15 helicopters, 20 traps, 20 static weapons, Vietnam era music and radio, a fantastic Vietnam War atmosphere and intense jungle combat.

The community has made more than 50 multiplayer and single-player Vietnam-based missions, which we put in this Missions collection

- Mod size is 16.8 GB
- DLCs are NOT required.
- For maximum enjoyment, we recommend that co-op server hosts run a custom difficulty profile with enemy AI accuracy set below 0.2
- if you experience crashes in the editor, please see the compatibility section below for a proven fix (memory allocator).


Welcome to the Nam! You’ll soon be enjoying the suck as an everyday Marine or Soldier watching for traps and the many ambushes that wait for you in the Jungle, with an M16 or an M14 in your hand you have to be wary of every direction and up or down, looking for snipers in the trees or traps at your feet. Clear spider holes or tunnel systems, securing a victory through Hearts and Minds as Infantry, or enjoy yourself as a pilot in a fleet of old planes and helicopters! Fly a Huey jamming music through the jungle as you transport troops or do CAS missions, or fly a Jet running CAS missions dropping bombs or napalm on the enemy. Or do you fancy yourself fighting for the Vietnamese quest for independence? Play as the tenacious National Liberation Front, who the Americans call the “Viet Cong”, or play as the formidable North Vietnamese Army, you decide in The UNSUNG Vietnam War Mod!

The Unsung mod team, which has been working on this authentic Vietnam-era full game conversion since OFP (in 2003), brings you realistic jungle fighting, hand-to-hand combat and fully 3-dimensional warfare in this immersive standalone mod for Arma 3.


Menu title track: it's a team-made track inspired by the old Vietcong game soundtrack, but different.

- Fight across 11 large and detailed maps, of which 5 use the beautiful new Arma 3 APEX foliage (no DLC required)
- Join the fight with over 100 authentic period weapons, from AK47 / M16 to the more rare weapons like MAS36 or K50
- Ride into battle on a wide range of Jeeps, M35 truck, M37 truck, 14 types of M113 APC, XM706 APC or M107, M110, M551 Sheridan or M48 Patton tanks
- Vietnamese vehicles include the Zil157 and Ural trucks, Type 55, BTR-152 and Type 63 APC's, and ZSU-23-4, ZSU-57-2, T34, T54 and T55 tanks
- Patrol the rivers in the classic Patrol Boat Riverene (PBR), zodiacs or NVA patrol boats
- Blow away your enemies with over 30 types of static weapon, including artillery, AAA and SAMs - there's a calibre for every occasion!
- Fight as one of 15 factions including US Army, USMC, MFR, LRRP, SF, CIDG, Australia, New Zealand, SAS, ROK, ARVN, VC and NVA

Dependency and compatibility

The Unsung mod is designed as a standalone full-conversion mod for Arma 3. This release supercedes Delta release and is a complete replacement for it. It should be backwards compatible with missions made for Bravo, Charlie and Delta editions.

It is not tested with other mods, and we cannot answer questions about compatibility.
However we have tried to make it work with TFAR, and it probably works alongside ACE, but what works and what does not work with ACE is unknown.

If you have memory crashes using Unsung, especially on the APEX-related maps (Doung, Da Krong etc), please turn down your view distance, and play in 64 bit and test the 3 available memory allocators in the A3 Launcher. Most of us find JEMalloc to be the most stable.
Plei Trap Valley crashes - we are aware of this.

ohy0806, thanks for the input. We'll look into it.
Ben Martin Box, feel free to ignore the maps, I don't think any updates are planned for them.
Anlor, no plans for an F-3.

Will it be in the game McDonell F-3?

@UNSUNG Team - (la Drang, Gia Lai, Vietnam) - The trees on this map are all floating above the ground, everywhere. Please fix this or delete this terrain, since floating trees absolutely kill the mood. :steambored:

The A-37 is in dire need of improvement
If you sit in the cockpit, you cannot see the cockpit.
In addition, the main armament cannot be set, the maneuverability is not as stable as expected, and actual aircraft do not use the screen sector attached to the intake during flight.
