Great Mod whukid thumbsup I had SABoW on the backburner for a couple of weekends while I messed around with GPL. I usually don't have time during the week to fiddle much with simulators, so when this weekend finally arrived I was all geared up to try out your mod and the wait was worth it clapping Now the only problem is it's my last day off and I'll have to wait till next weekend to play again frown
cheers

Totally sweet!

Looking at your Graviteam forum pic of the centurion: is the SA Oliphant tank in real life a modified British Centurion tank?

Cheers!

Yes. Old centurian upgraded with Israel's assistance. If memory serves, major overhaul of engine/transmission/suspension with major upgrades to fire controls. Ie...a laser range finder. However in Angola the oliphants really did not do as well as they should have against the Cuban/Angola forces. My guess is the nature of the terrain. A laser range finder is not really gonna help you out when a heck of alot of the fighting is at in your face range.

The last skin looks like #%&*$#, so I remade it along with the rest of the Syrian roster (excluding BRDM-2)

2.0 is still awhile off. A bunch of things still need to be completed, such as the import of vehicles like the m48 and Centurion with sideskirts and then a bunch of editing to those config files, not to mention the addition of Jordan, the PLO, and of course, missions. It's definitely not going to be done by the next patch sigh

BATTLE FOR THE GOLAN
Some screenshots, to keep everyone interested thumbsup
IMPROVEMENTS:
-Black stock for FN FAL
-New Desert Skins for IDF tanks


I call this scenario "Fight for the Golan, Part 2: Invasion of Syria" and it goes as follows;
-An understrength company of Centurions, supplemented with an M60 platoon, is ordered to push into Syria following the initial fight for the Golan. Supported by a Mechanized company, they fight to take control of Al Qunaitra and open the push to Damascus.

The first three are the only shots taken in combat. The rest are after the Syrians retreated smile







(this one's for Flashburn)





(this one too)


Towards the sounds of Chaos


Knocked out outside of Al Qunaitra


These poor bastards got ran over.. by me. You can see the knocked out M60 in the background ready


Well, I hope you liked my little show smile Stick around for future updates!

People's Liberation Army Update
the Mujaheddin replaced by a much meaner, leaner enemy. Sporting FN_FAL's and AK-47's, they are a force to be reckoned with. Them damn RPG's are a pain in the ass dizzy

In the future, I'll try to add a PLO version sporting a Sweatshirt and jeans, but for now I think that should suffice smile
