To keep things simple i just post the main readme here, note that the downloads also include russian readmes this time.

Also you will find two bonus downloads, OFP style soviet marines and my reskinned vehicles.

In each download you also find a replacement pbo that will replace the OPFOR with our units, make sure you only use one soldier replacement at once, the vehicle one works with all of them and automaticly fits the right troops in

* Shadow NX & Skaven's RF Units & Weapons V.2.00 *

* Contents & Information *

This pack is a cooperation between Skaven, Cameron McDonald and
Shadow NX and features modern era Russian troops of the VDV and Naval Infantry
along with a big selection of several variants of the Kalashnikov assault rifle
and other soviet / russian weapons.

The soldiers are based on Bohemia Interactives SLA troops
and were reskinned to reflect modern russian troops, however
they still are reskins so forgive us if lots of their gear
still looks pretty soviet era like.

Also we should note that we plan to update this pack in the future
adding new units and weapons.


We hope you have fun and thank you for the support,

Skaven, Shadow NX and Cameron McDonald

* New in this version *

- New ballistics and realistic ammo ( try the svd... ^^ )
- New textures with more variation among the soldiers
- New normal maps for soldiers and weapons
- Second rifleman for more variety
- Improved weapon models and lods
- One shot / disposeable RPGs ( RPG-22 and 27 )
- Weapons that share same ammo can share mags AK-74 and AK-74M for example.

- New weapons:

- Pecheneg Machinegun scoped and non scoped.
- AKS-74 with late production plum coloured plastic parts in different variants.
- V-94 Anti material rifle ( Early variant of OSV-96 ).
- VSS Short range supressed sniper rifle.
- AS Val supressed rifle with and without Cobra optics.
- RPK-74M modernized version of the RPK-74 with plastic parts.
- Makarov Pistol with and without silencer.
- APS Pistol with and without silencer.
- AKMS a AKM with a foldeable skelleton buttstock.
- RPG-22 Disposeable launcher similar to US Law.
- RPG-27 Disposeable launcher that is kind of a one shot version of the RPG-29
- AK103 Modern AK series that can take the 7,62x39 ammo that has more punch.
- Western made AWM as bonus weapon cause a few are in use with the Spetsnaz.
- Lots of new variants of the old weapons.


Some equipment was changed so most probaly some missions made with the old
version need to be re edited, for example marines now carry the newer AKS-74s.

Also we are aware that some weapon models still arent 100% correct,
fixing that is planned for v.3 of the pack.

* Installing this addon: *

In the file you have downloaded you should find the following .pbo files:

- RHS_Marines.pbo
- RHS_VDVPara.pbo
- RHS_Mag.pbo
- RHS_Weap.pbo

Place all four .pbo files inside your Arma Addons folder
or the desired modfolder ( better method )

You find our soldiers on the OPFOR Side under the RHS Russian Men

You can choose groups under the East Side/Russian Army class.

The Ammo Box (with lots of extrweapons not equiped on the soldiers)
can be found on the regular Empty/Ammo section inside the Editor with the
name of RHS Weapons&Ammo Box.

--- OPTIONAL ---

Also you will find two replacement files in this pack:

- RHS Marines replacement.pbo
- RHS VDV replacement.pbo

If you also put ONE of these files in your addons folder then the OPFOR
soldiers will all be replaced by our VDV or Marine units.

...For the passion, for the glory, for the memories, for the money...You're a soldier, for your country,
what's the difference,all the same...Far away from the land of our birth,We fly a flag in some foreign earth,
We sailed away like our fathers before, These colours don't run, from cold bloody war...

Great job, but I'm getting an error message with the AWM:
<table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">No Entry: 'bin\config.bin/CfgRecoils.Ska_RiffleRecoil'[/QUOTE]
And unsurprisingly there's no recoil on the rifle.

Awww... damn, well last days were pretty stressy with many updates on these files.

Can the webmasters of the hosting pages maybe replace the file in the download?

Btw, is it only me or are the pictures loading extremely slow?

Thank you for your effort, guys. The overall size of this release is just ... amazing.

What can I say? Maybe that typical "downloading now!" will be the best choice? Posted Image

Found some stuff... First of all already mentioned that both repair and refuel are called repair (not only in replacement).
When Firing the AWM I get this error: "No entry bin\config.bin/CfgRecoils.Ska_Rifflerecoil" and my guess is that you need Skaven's racs to remove that... Also it has no recoil.

On the V94 there is no recoil unless you go to 3d person view and look from the side.

This is all I have seen for now...
