What is it?

The Ridgback PPV (Protected Patrol Vehicle) is a British modification of the American Cougar 4x4 MRAP.

It is fitted with a extensive armour package and electronics, including installation of the Enforcer remote weapon station.

Updated to v1.1

What You Get

v1.1

Added woodland version

Model tweaks, extra LOD's etc.

Added thermals

Improved handling both off and on road

(Optional) support for Blakes_Mirrors_EE addon gives reversing camera simulation

(Experimental) custom damage handling to make it more resistant to mines, IED's, low level rpg's (and zombies:))

Support for hiddenselections if you fancy a stab at re-texturing.

Texture templates are included in the download (just don't laugh at my UVmaps!)

v1.00 Desert variant

Requires

CBA, BAF/BAF Lite, blx_weapons.pbo (the last one is included in the download).

Nice work!

:thumb:

btw.. another display name would be nice.. Ridgback (Desert) instead of Ridgback_D.

Your 7zip-file has not the correct folder structure... @blx_ridgback\addons\blx_ridgeback.pbo would be nice. So you can unpack it directly in ArmA2 folder... now you have to add the addons folder.

Thank you for your work :)

Excellent stuff. Very nice vehicle - I feel quite safe inside this! The textures look fine - I don't think there is any need to fiddle with them.

Thanks for the replies, gents. Feel free to point out any major flaws - they're bound to surface eventually.:)

Extra thanks to Sickboy for adding it to six updater (which I've yet to figure out how to use!) and Miller for the mirror.

Your 7zip-file has not the correct folder structure... @blx_ridgback\addons\blx_ridgeback.pbo would be nice. So you can unpack it directly in ArmA2 folder... now you have to add the addons folder.

Feedback appreciated - I seem to make a habit of annoying people with my display names ....
