- 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

- 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.

@M3SA you need to add the unofficial adons to the list of Zeus objects in the curator module setup. Good luck.
M3SA Jun 16 @ 9:53pm 
I'm missing all of them. They only show up in a scenario that I was subbed to.
TeTeTe3  [author] Jun 16 @ 8:27pm 
@M3SA most objects are Zeus spawnable, if you find some missing, let us know.
M3SA Jun 16 @ 8:17pm 
Is this Zeus compatible?
Eggbeast  [author] Jun 15 @ 2:08am 
yes, in the long term.
cfklausen Jun 13 @ 8:09pm 
I'm sure you get this question a lot, but are there any plans to retexture the uniforms and gear to get it up to par with the rest of the mod?
Robstew360 Jun 11 @ 2:10pm 
@TeTeTe3 Thanks for the tip, I appreciate it. Like I said in my original comment, fantastic mod, you guys clearly spent a lot of time on this.
TeTeTe3  [author] Jun 10 @ 11:43pm 
@Distractor thanks for the info! Unsung is indeed a stand alone total conversion mod and has not been tested with any other major mods like CUP or IFA and such at all. I did some testing with Lesh's towing mod and CBA and DUI squad radar and other mods that are roughly orthogonal to Unsung. There has been no problems with those unrelated mods, but anything that is also a total conversion mod is probably asking for trouble.
Distractor Jun 9 @ 4:19pm 
If anyone receives a "Plane_Base_F" config error, it appears to be an erroneous MainTurret entry in the CUP MV22 config file under the Plane_Base_F class. I believe once MainTurret is removed in an update, it will fix this error. Just wanted to post this because I think it was another mod and not Unsung causing this error, and I noticed some posts assuming otherwise.
TeTeTe3  [author] Jun 2 @ 2:35am 
@Godzillers, I don't think anyone has tested the AI helo with Zeus so far. Thanks for the bug report, but not sure how to fix this.

@Robstew360, you can disable all RUG DSAI voices via the like named module. There is no exception list easily accessible. BTW Unsung is intended to be a stand alone full conversion mod, so compatibility with vanilla is not given.
