    I feel our aircrew deserve more customization options in the cav. Granted, we have multiple helmets and stuff for our heli crew and pilots, however I feel fixed wing and halo jumping need the proper attire. Our fixed wing pilots only have 1 helmet and 1 g-suit that have 3 colors. I think 3 pics (firewill crew pack *the guy that makes our F16, A10, and F15*) look a lot better then the 1 picture (vanilla arma.) This mod just allows way more customization like helmets, visors, vests, etc. Also, the vanilla pilot helmet gives full screen NVGs, but this pack allows you to remove the visor in arsenal and add the NVGs to the helmet (you know like how it REALLY is in REAL life.) I know it is a long shot, but I feel this needs some kind of attention whether or not it gets passed or not. Just want to hear what everyone thinks.

    Honestly as a pilot this is not needed, guys on the ground are never going see what uniform we have on. Plus adding a mod just for some uniforms that will have no impact on the versatility or the effectiveness of Fixed wing pilots just isn't needed.

    Hi, Fixed Wing Platoon Leader here


    This is obviously not to put you down but this mod is too redundant to justify it's inclusion in the mod pack. My pilots have little need or desire for different flavors of suits and helmets. When we consider mods for the aviation company functionality and what it adds to our strategic capabilities are what's considered. The only real thing this mod brings to the table with that is the helmet mounted sight, something which most of our airframes have already.


    Going forward with suggestions, if it is for a specific MOS you may wish to consult relevant personnel on the matter to get an idea on feasibility.


    Regardless, thank you for bringing this up and keep doing so. I'd love to hear from you if you have any ideas or suggestions in the future.

    I would agree that 200 MB is not really worth it. However, I have a background in texturing in Arma 3. I have no idea how the Cav manages its mods, but I could create some custom Cav textures if asked. I considered bringing this up awhile back. It would not take long to knock out a few custom helmet textures that actually have 7th Cav markings on them. Uniforms would be less noticed and therefore not really worth the effort IMO. As a pilot I will say that most pilots identify through their helmet. Each individual helmet texture size would be in the KB range. Not sure if its even possible to add this kind of thing into the existing CavPack or mod list. Regardless, the offer is on the table.

    In my Opinion, This is useless. I'd much rather see new maps to introduce better/more ideas for Ops and missions.

    Dont disagree with the maps. I was just offering services for a possible alternative. I also did a lot of map editing in Altis Life. Not sure how many people here work on that type of stuff, but if needed I would be more than willing to help.
