MODERN NOGOVA ARMY by Plasman
-----------------------------
Version 1.1. Dryland Nogpat
Version 1.0. Woodland Nogpat

Description:
------------
Modern Nogovan troopers in dryland and woodland (in two separe addons) NogPat BDU (a fictional pixelized disruptive camouflage pattern loosely inspired by Brad Turner's work).

(Fictional) Background:
-----------------------
In 2005 Australia considered for a moment replacing the Auscam pattern with a pixelized one. Brad Turner, a gifted camouflage designer, submitted his 037/2005 digital camouflage pattern as a competitor. The Aussies eventually decided to keep their current "Bunnies and hearts" Disruptive Pattern Camouflage. However, Turner's attempt did not got unnoticed and he was contacted by Nogovan Army officials who were looking for a new camouflage pattern to replace the old Resistance era uniforms. Now a fully fledged member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation Nogova is required to participate to the NATO Response Force as member of the newly created NATO Joint Task Force East. Thanks to American funding the small Baltic island has been able to reorganise its armed forces along western standards. Nogovan soldiers discarded their Eastern style uniforms and combat webbings while (except for the Special Forces) keeping their Russian made weapons, for obvious logistical reasons (still having entire stockpiles of Russian arms and ammunitions left by the renegade Soviets when they were expelled from the island). After several months of trials under a wide variety of environments (including a trip to the island of Rahmadi) a variation of the 037/2005 digital camouflage pattern was adopted and renamed NogPat, the Nogovan Government having bought the licence from Turner. Delivery to combat units started in early 2007 and are continuing.

Sorry, I'm not sure I understood the question but here is some kind of reply:

There a no proper ArmA 3D modelling tools released by BIS yet (you know the tune) so cannot create a different mesh for every pouch and link each one to a specific different texture. So yes the ammo pouches/pockets all end up with the same cammo pattern. It’s a bit odd but there nothing I could do about it.

A good work Plasman on your skins really both Auzy, UN and Nova. Not a easy work and nice to play with. I believe the last texture you made is fictional?
I have some favorite artist here in arma whose work are just great which you are a part in the list.

The one thing though i have not found yet is American troops desert style. Ebud's desert troops are sweet too but are special forces only. I usually use them mostly in missions imagining them as non special forces U.S troops.

Any plans on U.S desert troops or is there one out that I have missed some where?

Thanks very much Posted Image
The NogPat is a fictional cammo pattern.
However I do not deserve all the credit. My main source of inspiration for the NogPat is the work of Brad Turner, a camouflage designer who actually proposed his design to the Australian Army (who rejected it). This part of the background was not fictional. I was also influenced by the Flecktarn and Multicam camouflage patterns. Actually the idea behind the project was to find a nice Western style cammo suitable for the Sahrani/Rahmadi environment (or at least better suited than the current ArmA’s US ACU) Multiplayers feedbacks are welcome on this matter.

@ Vilas. The troops portrayed are modern (today’s) Nogova soldiers. Like the other former Warsaw Pact countries we can suppose Nogova got a fair share of US help/funding to revamp it’s armed forces and to bring them to NATO standards (including uniform design, which btw can be considered as an off the shelf purchase as NogPat was inspired by a commercially available pattern).

As for addon retexturing I think I will make a short pause...to concentrate on improving my "Typhoon over Rahmadi" SP mission.

Well, in the beginning I actually considered doing a Russian like cammo for Nogova's Army, but as Russian-Nogovan relationships are not supposed to be that good I figured the Nogovan Government and armed forces would be unwilling to adopt Russian cammo patterns (even if some of them are quite good). Not to mention digital/pixelized patterns are quite fashionable (and apparently efficient as well).

No offence but what's the use for Nogovan Army units when there isn't even a Nogova island ingame?

none taken Posted Image

Well, you know, those Nogovan guys are not forced to stay in their island forever Posted Image Especially if their governement follows the current trend among former Warsaw Pact / new NATO countries to send troops abroad to fight alonside their American allies. Nogovan infantrymen could be deployed as members of a NATO peace-keeping force sent to Sahrani. Btw if you take a close look you’ll notice a NATO patch on the right shoulder of the Nogovan soldiers.

Not the pouches, the pals webbing.

Maybe they came as a peacekeeping force to Sahrani after the conflict ended? Posted Image

Only logical thing imo, as the camo doesnt really fit the 70% of Nogova wich is NOT desert Posted Image

Oh, I see now, thanks Posted Image. Would make them look more realistic. Will modify the vest accordingly in a future release.

Just have these guys taking a trip to Northern Sahrani to check it out Posted Image

Yup, exactly, just as the NATO forces did in Kosovo for example, or the French/Italian UN forces in Lebanon last year. Actually, peace keeping-forces seems to arrive most of the time once the conflict is (supposed to be) ended.
