Welcome to the Community Radar, or as we also call it: #COMRAD. We're here to showcase another batch of incredible community content that was shared recently. Check it out!
The night belongs to the Combat Technology Research Group. This is something Farsight has made quite clear with this extremely stylish artwork of a CTRG Group 3 Operator in full assaulter kit! Check out his contrasting piece depicting a member of CSAT's Viper Team, the "Shadow Stalkers," here.
Titled "Evolution," this image by WilsonTheIrish depicts infantry in equipment from 1944 to 2035 (and one special drone). This image was created as a tribute to the past eight years of Arma 3 and the work of its developers and the modding community. From left to right - Faces of War; Arma 3 Creator DLC: S.O.G. Prairie Fire; Arma 3 Creator DLC: Global Mobilization; 3 Commando Brigade Units; RHS United States Armed Forces; USP Gear AIO & Tier One Weapons; Arma 3; and Arma 3 Contact DLC.
Here we have a piece of commissioned art by Krager 556. This "tacticool" operator in full kit and armed with a Vermin SMG appears to be searching through an abandoned village, possibly in the training areas of Livonia. This is just yet another beautiful example of the creativity of the Arma community!
Speaking of Livonia, Gekon has created this excellent screenshot of a Livonian Defense Force member and their squad patrolling through the colorful forests of the Autumn Livonia conversion mod by Greenfist. Check it out on Steam Workshop today! The mod also affects any other community maps that use vegetation assets from Livonia.
With this final piece, have something a bit different to share. ZFXFScreenshots has created this image of the Royal Navy coming ashore on a Caribbean archipelago in the 18th Century. The mod used to create this image was Nassau 1715, which should be downloaded if you want to experience a fairly unique total conversion of Arma 3!
