ArmA 3 releases M2A4 Slammer tank to celebrate anniversary

ArmA 3

By on March 7, 2014 at 7:25 am

Anniversary of what, I hear you say. The game was only fully released in September last year, after all. And you, dear reader, would be right in that astute observation. But this is an anniversary to celebrate the Alpha release of ArmA 3.

Now that you’ve got a four-foot wide frown on your face, let’s just enjoy the new toys Bohemia wants to throw at us. Outlined in the patch notes for ArmA 3 1.12 is the M2A4 Slammer, or at least an upgraded model that sports a remote-controlled turret, a reinforced back-end and better armour throughout.

Of course, the tank is just one of many, many, many changes to the game. I’m not going to post the full changelog below – it’s simply too big, but needless to say, there are a lot of fixes. Do yourself a favour and read them on the ArmA 3 blog instead, why don’t you?

Yay! ArmA updates! More toys!

 

campaign part 3 said to bring new fixed wing ground strike aircraft

still no fighters…tho the F-18 mod is so good it should be required installing these days (along with the nimitz carrier :) )

 

Several people who have been taking a peak at game code are 99% certain the BLUFOR CAS plane will be an updated version of the A-10.

Still no fixed wing transports which is sad.

 

baskerville,

Jet powered C-130 whaaaa?

 

goshawk,

Globemaster.

EXPLAIN to me where I’ve MISPLACED the weapon resting in this game.
