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.

So I seem to have a bit off a weird issue...I am using the Unsung mod with the IFA3 mod. I am doing a 1950s era op using the M48 Patton and the Early era helis from unsung since they were made in the 50s and all...However No WW2 era tank will fire on the M48 patton from unsung...However they will fire on the NVA soviet tanks from Unsung..They will only not fire on the US unsung tanks

@Abilsel killer junior and bee hive are both rounds that are used for immediate defense of the battery - think of them like shotgun shells. They can't possibly fire indirect.

Devs, please fix the aerodynamics of the C-1. As a pilot myself, there are two parts that isn't so realistic. The first one is that the plane will not turn after I roll it, it will maintain the same heading with a bank angle. The second one is the stability, when plane speeds up, it will try to climb to be stable. Now if I get more speed, the plane will try to crash into the ground and I need to fight the plane to stay flying.

Why does killer junior and bee hive artillery rounds not do anything? Im using simplex support services to call it in

Way to go Guys! Curious if SOG-PF will get content added with time?
Eggbeast  [author] May 7 @ 10:00am 
yeah Unsung Redux will be a smaller mod that fits better with the DLC.
Midnight [160th] May 7 @ 8:56am 
Hey guys is there any plans to create compatibility with the SOG DLC? The dlc has some crazy nice features vehicles and the map but I do wish for a wider range of vehicles for both the US and NVA
Frosted Vert May 7 @ 6:36am 
Unsung Redux was a brilliant idea -very cool concept.
Asuka ♡ Dirlewanger May 7 @ 12:28am 
Can you guys make a sub-mod for Prairie Fire users? What I mean is a version of Unsung that doesn't have duplicates. There are vehicles in this mod that aren't in Prairie Fire that I'd like to use, but I don't want to download Unsung again because I know there will be a ton of duplicate assets bloating the game.

not sure how it's possible but the M16 from this mod seems to have more texture and overall looks then the M16 in the new DLC , again not sure how this is possible
