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.

- Blow away your enemies with over 30 types of static weapon, including artillery, AAA and SAMs - there's a calibre for every occasion!

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.


You can play up to 32 player MP persistent missions made by the team here

Thankyou very much I'll try that. Again thanks for this mod there's truely nothing else like it.

the small punji traps are designed to only take down the legs of the player. try a vanilla unit opn them and yo ucan see they work as designed. however there is an issue with our player model hitpoints, meaning with our units you cannot see this effect right now.
