Thread: Is Arma 3 authentic?

  1. #1

    Question Is Arma 3 authentic?

    Is Arma 3 Authentic?



    Do you think Arma 3 looks oddly futuristic? Do you think it looks more like a fantasy game than Arma? Have you never seen some of those weapons or vehicles?
    Then this Thread will help you!

    It is dedicated to people who, from the first impression, think Arma 3 is not authentic. People who would like to easily show someone that in fact the opposite is the case and last but not least also people like me, who just like to discover all those little interesting details.
    I hope this collection might actually help and open some eyes to get over this first impression of "future stuff".

    Get comfortable, lay back and just assure yourself!


    Vehicles:

    Merkava tank

    Here it is in real life and that's how it looks like in Arma 3.
    Also notice how it uses the "Trophy" active protection system.

    Another important element of Arma are the environments.
    Arma 3 will take place on the island called "Limnos". Its real-life counterpart is called Lemnos and is situated in the Aegean Sea. The second island is called Agios Efstratios. If you are interested, I made a Picasa Web Album with a huge collection of pictures from Lemnos, Agios and similar places you can find here.

    Now, let's take a look at some comparison shots of Limnos vs Lemnos.
    Nr.1
    Nr.2
    Nr.3

    Agios Efstratios: Arma 3 vs Real life
    Nr.1
    Nr.2
    Nr.3

    Next to the general outlines of these islands, the team even accurately modells characteristic buildings one can find there.
    One example for that is the Limnos Power Plant.
    Arma 3
    Real life

    As you can see, even the ventilators and the fucking pipe are in the correct place!




    I hope you enjoyed taking a look at this collection and maybe look at things from a different angle now

    ps. Huge shoutout for the team! When researching all the pictures and information for this thread, I was really astonished by the amount of detail and love you put into the game.

    kind regards

    The simple fact that any Iranian would be using Merkavas or Tavors is so ridiculously stupid that it makes my brain bleed.
    I support and respect the rights of addon makers to decide what is done with their addons and what is not. It really doesn't take a big effort to write a PM and ask.

    amm, actually "real life" photo of the infamous Mi-48 "Kajman" is not authentic. That's just Mi-28. Sure, devs have taken lot of stuff from it, but i think description need to be corrected. For great justice, you know...

    Ditto. Regardless of how anyone wants to play the ArmAverse card, from a TO&E standpoint, it is stupid and the imbecility of it leaves me somewhat speechless. However, it's been discussed ad-nauseum up to this point.

    Are the butterfly, seagull and olive tree comparisons there to make sure we're not inventing sci-fi variants?

    Perhaps today. Think into the hypothetical future!

    Really? So if a country has the posibility to produce a foreign weapon design that is superior to it's own , during wartime, it wouldnt? What's so stupid about that?

    Good post Pure, I say it needs to be a sticky

    There are plenty of Iranian produced components. They have their own MBT, IFV, APC, and small-arms weapons designs now, and a few advanced ones in the pipe. Hypotheticals have nothing to do with it. It is however Iranian ideology first and foremost. Something most around here can't seem to get their heads around.

    Iranians in Israeli vehicles is like Hitler and Nelly Sachs acting in a play together.

    You are talking about an Iran 20+ years into the future that went through a regime change. I can not remember where I read it, but they are not an islamic republic anymore. The whole "down with the zionists!!!" fades away after you made an example of them. What greater insult there is then to use their own technology against their allies.

    Don't iranians use T-100?

    I thought iranians used the hexa-camo stuff, while blufor used non-camo vehicles in ArmA3?
    ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
    ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

    Giving 'authenticity' an entirely new meaning, together with Medal of Honor.
