I was thinking of making a mod for US/N. Korea and the possible outbreak of WWIII... especially the state Angretina is in right now. This, idea is based on the most possible situtions/crisis that is occuring.
Of course we all know about the Iraqi Freedom operation and that the US is planning to invade Iran after the war in Iraq. Also, with the nuclear crisis in N. Korea and the raising agression in the country and of the past few years, they tried build a relationship with S. Korea before US stepped in and broke it up.
However, not entirely sure if Russia should be involved. They are becoming more diplomatic and is N. Korea's only ally but Russia is also ally of the US. So, based on those facts, Russia will be netural for now.
At first, it would be N. Korea/US to start off, then UK and Angretina will be introduced later, so people can grasp the basic or the beginning of the third world war (even though there was 8 in the entire history, but you don't see WWII being called: WWVIII).
What are the weapons and vehicles, you asked? Of course, research and military experts/people who are in the military. Right now, a friend of mine has had been serving in the US military for about 10 years. He gave the list of standard issued weapons. Even though, the Beretta pistols and knives aren't issued, he said it would be ideal to keep the game balanced, and especially if it about WWIII. But however, i could not find enough information on N. Korea beside their light/medium tanks, 3 planes and the military use Russian vehicles. But, I will continue to search for the small arms however.
1) A standard knife 2) Standard M9 Beretta 3) M24 Sniper Rifle 4) M1 Carbine 5) M61 Frag Hand Grenades 6) Night Binocular
The sniper get a standard issued sniper rifle and the standard M1 for close combat. Of course, the scout class get a Binocular, but again... everyone basically get one... (I think, not sure if I remember)
1) Standard Knife 2) Standard M9 Beretta 3) M16A2 Rifle 4) M61 Frag Hand Grenades 5) Night Binocular
The assualt class get the standard rifle, upgraded from the M16 which is the standard for all class, except for snipers. Also, they are issued the standard grenades. From what I understand, the purpose of assault in real life is that... you force the opposing force to play by your rules.
1) Standard Knife 2) Standard M9 Beretta 3) Standard M16 Rifle 4) AT4 5) M61 Frag Hand Grenades
The anti-tank, medic and engineer get the standard issued M16 rifle... but however the assault class get a M16A2. I decided not to give the anti-tank, engineers and medics night binoculars to keep the game balanced. (Even though in real life they were all issued the binocular). However, to sum up the anti-tank... they are basically assault that were allowed to carry an extra weapon. Again to keep the game balance, I did not give them the M16A2.
1) Standard Knife 2) Standard M9 Beretta 3) Standard M16 4) Medic Pack 5) M61 Frag Hand Grenades
Same standard medic class, except they got the standard army M16.
1) Knife 2) Standard M16 3) Demolition Pack 4) Land Mine 5) Ability to cut barbed wires/deploy them 6) Repair Kit
According to my military friend, engineers get the standard M16, but however they were not provided with the usual grenades because of the extra stuff they carry. They are responsible for repairing, cutting barbed wires and demolition. They did not get the standard M9 Beretta like in real life, because:
1) They already a huge advantage 2) It would be interesting to see some gameplay with barbed wires 3) They already too powerful
But however, i might degrade the M16 down to the sniper's standard M1 if they already have too much advantage in the mod.
I haven't done much with N. Korea though, because the information outside their airforce is freaking impossible. Beside, that they used some of China's and Russia's vehicles. I am not going to even guess on the small arms.
However, Stan (the military friend I were referring to a few times earlier) suggested FAS for US vehicles.
However, the mod didn't lift off pass the research part because :\ I suck at modelling, skinning or even mapping. So if anyone is up to it, what you say if we could bring this to life :D.
srry but me and some others are doing a mod like that korean war :lookaround:
The past Korean war or a future Korean war? :P...
Beside, :P I said Angretina is going to be involved as well.
i think you should make the mod it sounds like a good idea. and if you get it going let me know i cant do modeling or mapping or anything like that, but i will be a tester if u like let me know. [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email]
I will ;), if I am able to put together a team.
:confused: :confused: Ok... - Angretina??? Is that a country??? Do you mean Argentina? - You wouldn't get a 3rd world war out of N. Korea. It'll be a nasty war but as you said, N.Korea only has one real ally...Russia and they ain't gonna be running to help them any time soon. I'd much rather be on friendly terms with the U.S then with some crackpot commie dictator. I dunno what you call world wars, but N.Korea would be a simple regional conflict. Its not like they'll go stomping round the pacific declaring war on everyone they see (like the Japs)
- Invade Iran? Doubt it. The war in Iraq is costing enough as it is, along with all the costs for feeding the population, rebuilding etc. The U.S ain't gonna be able to afford a war in Iran. They can't piss of the U.N much more either.
- Angretina? Assuming you mean Argentina, why would they go to war with the UK?
- 8 world wars?...Explain?
Apart from the...wierd storyline the mod sounds good. Be like a Desert Combat in the pacific.
:\ blame my alas.
Anyway, Argentina won't go to war with the UK though, but however they would be most likely go to war with the US, based on past events. The UK, is simply an ally.
A world war refers to a war with more than 1 front. 8 world wars? Simple, look in a fact book or a history book. However most of them (except the last 2 world wars) are before 1900s.
The Iran thing was just a rumor though. But you're right.
And like I said, I don't really know how to make the mod, it just a proposal for anyone who willing to take it in.
IMO, DC is kinda too reliable on the airforce. We pretty much know that some vehicles made a big outcome, for example: Mine Depenser, they layout minefields, etc.
Id be willing to test it also!
I have a small but acurate idea... use a KA-BAR, not standerd isue knife and 2nd if u whant i could test also:naughty: [EMAIL]RMconger@attbi.com[/EMAIL]
You know what? Forget the whole thing, unless some people are interested in picking up the ideas.
