New in version 1.6.0: This will update version 1.5 of America's Army: Operations to version 1.6. This update expands the importance of rules of engagement and teamwork within America's Army due to its introduction of non-combatants in the new 'Radio Tower' non-combatant rescue mission. New functionality such as the addition of projectile penetration and ricochets add increased realism to game scenarios. Version 1.6 also marks the transition of America's Army to the production version of Unreal's version 2110 engine.

What's New:

Updated Game Engine 
The updated version of the game engine provides improved networking and audio performance and enhanced server and client stability.  The production version of the Unreal engine will allow America's Army to deliver an expanding array of functionality, combat systems, armaments and of course, expanded opportunities to explore occupations and individual development in America's Army: Soldiers.

"Radio Tower" Non-Combatant Rescue Mission
"Radio Tower" is a daytime mission in which assaulting elite Army Rangers parachute into harsh desert terrain, infiltrate a catacomb of underground tunnels, rescue international aid workers and secure a large radio tower from opposing forces.  Players on the defense serve as elite Army Rangers charged with defending a group of aid workers and a large radio tower from attack by opposing forces. 

Projectile Penetration
By implementing projectile penetration, America's Army Version 1.6 will provide players with expanded realism across all simulated combat levels.  Surfaces such as cloth, glass and wood will now allow projectile penetration with projectile damage and trajectory affected by the type of surface penetrated.  With this upgrade the difference between cover and concealment will be apparent!

Projective Ricochets
In addition to projectile penetration, America's Army: Operations now incorporates ricochets as well.  With this feature, firing your weapon at an object with an incident angle of less than 45 degrees can result in ricochets.  The damage and trajectory resulting from ricocheting projectiles will vary with a projectile's incident angle and the type of material it hits. 

Other New Features Include:
*  Bullet decals now appear on static meshes
*  Bullet decals now appear on movers (e.g., doors)
