I'm now dabbling with a French SF mod (there are very few French mods out there so I thought I'd even things out). At the moment the mod is going to be 1st RPIMa/ CPA 10 (French Air Force SF- I've got some excellent reference material!). The basic skins will be based on Wildcats camo but I'm totally remaking the French webbing which is proving to be a little complicated. I'll also be in need of some French weapons (Famas, FRG2, Ultima Ratio 762 silenced sniper rifle, Hecate II, 60mm mortar, etc) so if anyone can help, please PM me.

Cheers

@ Devil Dog - More Marines?? They've been done by those far more talented than I! (But I do love that Marpat so who knows?) What sort of Marines mod is left to do?

@ Gothic Snake - The French have some really cool kit so it would nice to show it off. So far the mod is being made to be used with "Traffic Columbie" mod and the [Ghost Recon] missions. I may stick in some French Naval Commados as specialists for the dock map. I've got 6 chrs so far, 2 based on BJB's woolcap model, 2 based on BJB's CQB model and 2 others on basic models. They look pretty good so far but the webbing is very tricky!

Well it's done, a very simple French SF mod (no desert skins though). If anyone is interested I'll try to release it but as before I'll need permission from a few modders to use their models/attachments (I'll try to get it right this time!). I've simplified this to be a straight RPIMa mod, the webbing and pouches are all new, the camo is from Wildcat and the faces are a mix of the camo'd marines from IT and my own. I have used this mod with Sabre Teams so the FAMAS can be used.

Anyone interested?

yeah. too bad it aint available with desert camo. i created a mission using the DS beach map, where you are french marines trying to capture an islamic extremist who has helped poison las vegas water supply, and the arms dealer supplying him with top notch weapons.

no worries though, i'll cook up a mission for all the trouble the frenc are having in NW africa using these.

thanks mate!

Nice one Stalker! I'll put together some desert skins (though this will delay the release). Can anyone help with information on current issue French webbing as I think the style I've drawn up is out of date (The book I used as refernce is dated 1999 and the more recent photo's I've seen on the net have guys with assault vests instead.

I've just completed Sixpence's Irish Rangers campaign using this mod and the weapons from Sabre Teams-Very satisfying!

Cheers

I'm giving up on the desert skins for now though will probably do a desert mod soon. Also I won't be adding weapons-I tried and failed miserably importing various weapons from all sorts of mods (but recommendthat this mod be played with Sabre Teams!). I know it's a bit of a step backwards but the skins do look good- I'm trying again to send images but am still having problems.

If he'll upload it, I'll send this mod to Rocky at the end of the week as a finished mod.

cheers
