RKSL Studios ArmA Projects
Just as was said in the OFP forums some months ago we are going to port our existing OFP projects into ArmA. ***The focus; in conjunction with the UKF Team, on British Expeditionary Forces, added to that we’re going to create a few more surprises to tag onto the project list.
ArmA's new graphics and scripting engine has given us some interesting possibilities. So we have decided to make some ambitious plans. ***We plan to simulate the British Expeditionary Forces and the supporting systems either currently in service or due in service by 2012-17. ***Inline with the way the modern battlefield has evolved we plan to make a series of addons that simulate the integrated battlefield control systems of the 21st century.

The plan is to release a series of addons in 2 phases, focusing on several script systems that should add to the functionality and the game play. ***Then to provide addons to demonstrate them:
<span style='font-size:12pt;line-height:100%'>PHASE 1 – Addon Releases</span>
These will be stand alone addons with the supporting scripted systems such as:
FCSS – Fire Control Script System
--- e.g.: ***Rapier FSB, Rapier FSB, SA-2 etc
“Improved” Cargo System
--- e.g.: C-130 (UK Versions), IL-76
VTOL - Realistic VTOL system for Harriers and JCA
--- e.g.: GR7/9, F-35B/JCA

<span style='font-size:12pt;line-height:100%'>PHASE 2 – Integrating Systems </span>
This phase will take the form of an update patch or a new addon pack; we’re not sure exactly what will be required; allowing the addons to interact with each other. These will provide the basis of the modern integrated information systems to accurately simulate the modern battlefield as seen from the perspective of a UK armed forces member.
We are looking in to ways to simulate the sort of communication a pilot/soldier/gunner would expect to get. This means systems and scenarios such as:
<ul>AWACS – Warning of incoming aircraft and dynamic requests for CAS, Medivac and extraction.
ASTOR – Airborne Stand Off Radar – Real time battlefield Intel provided to the appropriately equipped personnel and vehicles.
JTIDS – Joint Tactical Information Distribution (Designation) System – Target Sharing and situational displays.
Fire Control (FCSS) on air defence systems – AI ability to engage multiple targets at once and assign assets to threats.
UAV/UCAV tasking – requesting UAV intel/cover and being able to direct it via radio.[/list]
We wont be posting a comprehensive list of all our addon plans but most is already out there for those who to search to find!
