    UH-60M Interactive Blackhawk

    This is still in the infant stage, I would not want this implemented until certification of MoD and a re-training of pilots.

    UH-60M Interactive Blackhawk

    Chief, As I am not one to be adding things to the mod pack just to have "Flashy" or "Shiny" things. With this mod, how big and whats the other factors serve with this mod? I sounds like a beta as well and we also dont want things that wont be 100% in our packs either.

    UH-60M Interactive Blackhawk

    While flying in ARMA isn't my thing, it is a cool addition on bring the realism up another notch for those that want it.

    UH-60M Interactive Blackhawk

    A fully interactive Blackhawk for Arma 3 By Riverx & Yax Background In the past year, RiverX and I have spent a lot of time working on the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, trying to push its realism as far as we could get within the restrictions of arma. As we learned about what Arma can and can not do, and what we can and can not do, we started thinking about a new project that would allow us to put on a lot more polish and detail. In February we started work on this new project, and today we've decided to start sharing some progress with the community. Description With this mod we aim to implement a highly realistic and immersive UH-60M Blackhawk, with some other minor variants possibly added in the future. Our aim is to add in-depth custom interaction with the aircraft for all 4 crew positions, to turn operating the aircraft in to a real team effort. As of now, all interaction seen in the startup video is multi crew compatible, meaning the co-pilot and pilot can take turns pushing buttons and flipping switches however they like, and it'll work as it's supposed to. Media Vehicle Interaction As you can see in the video, we've already managed to get a good portion of the startup procedure functional. If you look closely you can notice that every interaction is followed by a little hand icon being attached to the interaction, along with the name of the person who performed the action, this allows you to see where other crew members are interacting with the vehicle, so you can intuitively know what everyone is doing, this can of course be turned off. For Mod Developers The vehicle interaction system is in no way hard coded for the Blackhawk, it is implemented as a completely separate vehicle interaction framework, allowing switches, buttons and animated knobs/levers to be defined completely through the vehicle's (cfgVehicles) config, and we'll be releasing this framework separately with detailed documentation, to bring simple interactive vehicles to the whole arma community. The way forward As for release, for now all we can say is "it's ready when it's ready". We intend to release the blackhawk in feature packs, releasing updates with for example FMS functionality, or FLIR functionality. We hope to start finding community groups who can help us do testing within the next couple months. We'd also like to take this chance to reach out to anyone with experience operating the UH-60M in real life. We are currently looking for people with real life experience to advise us on getting some of the features down. Source

    ARMA 3 Contact

    Come on Sir, Area 51....... I agree with you Sir, was just throwing it up to find out if I need to start saving my pennies to add it to be able to join ARMA functions.

    ARMA 3 Contact

    I vote No as this has nothing to do with Milsim Gaming.

    ARMA 3 Contact

    Is ARMA 3 Contact going to be added to the server or not? If so, how soon will it be added?

  12. Hello Chief,

    Is there a server on which I can hone my basic skills while I wait for AIT and FTW in the weekends?

    Uniform Mod

    We already give "special" awards like the NDSM to our veterans that no one else gets unless they are a verified veteran, This isn't something I would be looking to have our support team try to manage. My answer is still no on this one for the reasons I listed above . Soldier, I appreciate the suggestion and understand the reasoning, The 3rdID patch isnt my only combat patch or my own unit patch I hold IRL. So I understand wanting to transfer your real patches in game however as a Veteran to another Veteran "I don give a crap about anyones prior units, your in the 3rdID now, this is home!" - CSM Perason

    Uniform Mod

    This would work for In game to a point but not applicable for our website Uniforms, we will not be editing our template for the website uniforms to have all the possible units out there. I can see the same being an issue for it in game as well. There are far too many unit patches out there and isn't fair to those that don't serve in a major division (IE: National Guard, State Guard or Reserve) So as cool as it would be I would have to say no. Our ingame uniforms currently have the 3rdID patch (from XML) and we currently have Squad/ Platoon patches for the other arm.

    Unites States Army NGSW upgrade for the 3rd?

    I will admit, with transitioning to using the Badger IFV (base arma 'Marshall') it would be logistically suitable to use this weapon.
  19. https://steamcommunity.com/games/581320/announcements/detail/1603759333268193323 Will be free to play during Steam Free Weekend, 10am PST Thursday June 20th to 10am PST Monday June 24th.

    I would support this idea. @MAJ J.LaFlash & @1SG J.Rizzo

    Unites States Army NGSW upgrade for the 3rd?

    I will approve this for squad level testing (2 rifles). Report back to myself and @SFC G.Beaudoin with results.

    Uniform Mod

    Hello, So I got a idea to run by you all. So when i was in 173rd our uniforms relflected the unit and real life unit they were with in the actual military for example left arm we would wear the 3rd ID patch and if I was in the 82nd airborne i would have it on my right arm in game. It just a little something that we did at 173rd for military members who served. Like for example aswell I know some units in the 3rd ID had the logo on the helmet cover idk if we have anything like that but it would also be nice "De oppresso liber"

  24. Could we see a change to a MX style weapon system in game? The Army has made a purchase of some one hundred thousand new rifles. These weapons include a replacement for all 5.56 caliber rifles and machineguns. The new caliber is a 6.8 caliber bullet. There is no real equivalent in Arma 3 but there is a similar weapon. Here is a post from the wiki about them. The MX is a 6.5mm assault rifle used as a standard-issue weapon for the BLUFOR army. It is lightweight, reliable, easily serviceable and compatible with a large number of accessories. Several variants of the MX rifle exist: MX 3GL is equipped with a 3GL grenade launcher. MXM is a designated marksman rifle for engaging targets from a larger distance compared to assault rifles. MX SW is a light support weapon providing light machinegun support. And finally MXC is a carbine version with shorter barrel, better suited for close quarters combat. This post is not meant to confirm any kinds of changes. It is just a thought I have been having since the confirmed purchase from the United States Army. I encourage everyone to look into the everyday activities of the Army and post comments about a weapon change like this for real life reasons and about the group.
  25. Sgt. Nicholas Serra (right), 24th FMSU, STB, 3IDSB, accepts a certificate from Command Sgt. Maj. Gerald Capo, the senior enlisted leader of the STB during the battalion’s NCO induction ceremony, June 6 on Fort Stewart Providers hold NCO induction ceremony, remember D-Day The Special Troops Battalion, 3rd Infantry Division Sustainment Brigade, held a noncommissioned officers induction ceremony June 6 at Moon Theater. The tradition is used by senior NCOs to convey the sense of esteem and pride felt when a newly-promoted Soldier realizes that they are now a part of the backbone of the Army. Sgt. Maj. Jon Noyes, brigade operations sergeant major, spoke at the event retelling the story of D-Day and the Medal of Honor recipient, Technician 5th Grade John J. Pinder. “I tell it because, while the Army has changed plenty since D-Day, the basic role of NCOs has changed very little since World War II,” Noyes said. “Our charge is to provide our Soldiers with the leadership and training they deserve.” When promoted from specialist to corporal or sergeant, role changes to include more oversight of Soldiers and property. Sergeants are expected to achieve results while leading and developing Soldiers through training. Sgt. Jasmine Bullard, HHC, STB, 3IDSB, passes under an arch and sabers during the battalion’s noncommissioned officer induction ceremony, June 6 on Fort Stewart. “I’m a squad leader and I’m in charge of four Soldiers. When I was a specialist I only had one, so it’s more responsibility and thinking on my feet,” said Sgt. Nicholas Smith, squad leader with 90th Human Resources Company, STB, 3IDSB. “To me, to be an NCO is to take care of your Soldiers and place their needs above your own.” As a leader you must believe in the Army values and take pride in the uniform you wear each day and remember your basic responsibilities are accomplishment of the mission, and the welfare of Soldiers and upholding the standards. “Good leaders are trusted by followers,” said Noyes. “Soldiers are watching you. If you accomplish the mission and take care of your people you will gain their trust.” Junior enlisted Soldiers also assisted with the rite of passage. They read letters asking their NCOs to mentor them to someday follow in their footsteps. “When you’re in the Army you are part of something greater than yourself and NCOs get to help people learn and grow,” said Pfc. Courtney Harris, 287th Quartermaster Company, STB, 3rd IDSB. The ceremony concluded with the inductees raising their right hand reciting The NCO in charge, pledging to fulfill their greatest obligation as a leader. Noyes finished his speech quoting Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, “The sergeant is the Army. […] Remember those who came before and strive every day to be the best leader you can possibly be.” Editors note: Co-written by 3rd IDSB Public Affairs specialist, Sgt. Laurissa Hodges and Sgt. Elizabeth White. Source
  26. Private Trainee D.Doom,

              We have met, though briefly, in the server already. Your tenacious attitude and willingness to gain access and accompany us on a small mission is much appreciated. I hope that any further issues are found and ironed out. I know you know that being a member of the United States military is a special course. This course can lead many to succeed and surpass where others fear to even try. Here in this 3rd infantry group we practice to keep the same levels of difficulties that real world operations have. I am honored you would attend our training all weekends and especially this weekend again.

    Honestly,

    Sergeant J.Feagin

  27. Private Trainee C.Deiz,

I am not sure what you know of the United States military but we hold a time honored capability to be able to engage in combat anywhere on the planet. Inside this group we maintain the upmost respect towards everyone as if we are members of the actual military. I am sure you will be an outstanding member also and will soon be able to demonstrate as well as learn to be all we can be. Welcome and I hope to see you this weekend playing.

    Honestly,

    Sergeant J.Feagin
