All the usual suspects. It seems to me Military games should just pool their resources and stop building the same guns over and over. How many times has an AK47 been modeled? Someone needs to do a super high rez one and sell it on Turbo Squid.

It's the real sequel to Operation Flashpoint. Itís essentially a war simulator where youíre allowed to do everything between infantry and armored combat (including piloting jets and helicopters). Everything in-game is made to resemble and perform like its real life counterparts as closely as possible.

Factions will also have a different arsenals. So you could even say it is a necessity.

The only big differences between the guns are just ammo capacity, range, damage, material penetration and sightings.

Accuracy? Probably the old AKs from what I remember with ArmA1 but I always opted for tank crew so I'd get a short range personal defense weapon.

Ah the memories of my friendly kills.

Weight, reload speed, mobility, dimensions, visibility, muzzle flash, recoil, firing rate, ammo types, accuracy..

50-something vehicles. These aren't all of them. They're missing all the variants, the Avenger and that big ass naval assault ship that doubles as an aircraft carrier.

Damn, the Marines' apcs and the Avenger might as well be spit wad shooters compared to the BMP-3 and the 2S6M Tunguska. Hopefully the US has an advantage with the M1A2 vs T-90 and with the helicopters and aircraft.

It would be nice to see the C-130 carry some vehicles and not just soldiers.

First thing I thought of was the Reliant Van from Only Fools & Horses.

Anyway, after being a massive Op Fap fan, I criminally missed out on ArmA, I will not make the same mistake twice.

As for the "how hardcore is this game" questions, the answer is simple: SO hardcore. Op Fap was one of the first squad based war games I played where "going rambo" just never worked, ever, lots of fun though.

Fake edit: going to war in a MK3 Golf: win. (Reminds me of the episode of Top gear where Clarkson done a beach landing in a Fiesta)

No, thankfully. Also Arma/OFP is hardcore but it's not impenetrable like some flight sims are. Sort of similar to the early ghost recon/rainbow games in difficulty.

Anyway, after being a massive Op Fap fan, I criminally missed out on ArmA, I will not make the same mistake twice.

there's a demo available. I think it also has the mission editor with it.

and for the people who seem to have inexplicably never heard of it, despite press, trailers and threads of said press for OFP, Arma1 and Arma2 some ingame screens that never fail to impress me:
