Confused - this takes me to two minutes of a sniper standing around :confused:

Is there a direct link for download or to rewatch? Also, are they meaning real 3d scopes or the effect that we have now?

Awsome Live Stream, think it well considering the spam in chat intefering with logit questions for the devs. love the new heli an gotta get my hands on that new mg 8) Also the 3d scopes are they goin to be able to swap 3d scopes between various weapon class ie 3d scope to mg class/sniper class weapon? Also is it possible to replay the live stream as I had to leave mid way in.

I'm pretty sure Jay stated in the chat, that tracked vehicles will appear later in the beta.

A bit disappointed about the lack of working bipods for the initial release. I hope they'll really work on it later as they said they'ld hope to. Same with ToH flight model, I really hope they won't give up the idea.

I didn't have too high hopes regarding PiP actual 3D scopes. But the new 3D scopes will do I guess, still is a good improvement over the current solution.

Overall it was a pretty good stream although the beginning was obviously the more exciting as they actually showed new content. Too bad about the chat being spammed by trolls... I probably missed a few answers from the staff because of that.

Protip: Next time turn down the game's volume, couldn't hear anything they were saying while they were piloting the Comanche.

Comanche? Really? Why include a helicopter that was cancelled in 2004? I just don't see the sense in that.

This is future, maybe they decided to go on and to finish the product. But I guess its a good question.

From what I've understand there won't be TKOH flight model in final release - maybe later. If so that would be a little sad thing.

You could say the same thing about every weapons and vehicles in the game imho... Not the least concerned about authenticity it appears, but well it's their decision.

Cancelled in our 2004, not in their 2004. The timelines have diverged ever since the mid-1980s. ;)

Did anyone hear what they were saying when they were showing off the 'Comanche'? I didn't get to hear anything...

No, it was impossible to hear a thing.

Great live stream. :) Thanks a lot.

Something funny I noted:

As Zipper was sprinting into cover in the mission, it looks like he reproduced this bug (with the exception that he didn't look at the AI): http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=4406
