scubaman3D has posted two pictures of his FN SCAR assault rifle on the BI Forums.
So I found a great model of a SCAR H for free on the internet and set about making a Special Forces Weapons addon for ArmA.
I don't take any credit for this model and the author only asks that it not be used to make money and to give credit where credit is due, but I would like to know if anyone might be interested in helping me develop the addon.
RobertHammer has posted several pictures of his weapon packs on the BI Forums. Pictures below are featuring his RPG-7V launcher and AK-74SU modifications. For more information and pictures of his weapons, head over for the forum thread!
It was a long and painful process, but finally it's here, our new site has reached a sufficient development to be opened to our visitors!
As you can see, this version looks alot more like the OFP.info site than the first version of Armedassault.info. We didn't want to reinvent the wheel, and to build on the original site, which so many people used.
There are many similarities with OFP.info, such as a similar interface and multilanguage support, but there are also a large number of improvements. These include a new search system, addons and missions can be rated, sorted by different criterias. I.e., you can view all files released by a particular addonmaker by clicking on his name. Furthermore a download counter has been added, comments are functional and easier to manage for the team, and many more great features!
The biggest change is in the "admin" section, which will allow us to be faster in adding and sorting content, making modifications, as well as translating it for our other language portals, etc...
Download speeds should be increased too, as we've transferred them to a new server.
This new website has been made available through the work of Nano19 who made virtually all the PHP code. He worked on the ArmA-Fr.net site with SoldierIsNotHistory, of which this site is based on.
A big "Thank you!" should be giving to our leader Cervo, without his perseverance this site would not be what it is today. Also we would like to thank MarK and Hardrock, who helped us on old versions, which never have never been published, but have allowed us to determine what was necessary and what was useless or too complicated.
Snake Man from Vietnam: The Experience mod team has released several new Work in Progress screenshots over on our forums, along with information about how the mod itself is progressing.
ArmA engine will allow us to create incredible looking jungle without such CPU slowdowns as seen with OFP (not to say that VTE-OFP was lagging). There is much to learn from the engine so our models are now just retextures and OFP ports, but in time we will create new content. We are in very early on the development and anyone interested of the proceedings can check here or the official forums.

Shadow NX has released as a Bonus a Russian Vehicles Pack addon on the BI Forums. Russian Federation Units V2.0 is needed to make this addon work
This pack is a cooperation between Plasman & Shadow NX and features reskinned BIS Models that are edited to look more russian style. You find the vehicles on the OPFOR Side under the RHS Russian Amored and RHS Russian Wheeled section.
Shadow NX has released an updated Russian Federation Units addon on the BI Forums. This pack is a cooperation between Skaven, Cameron McDonald and Shadow NX and features modern era Russian troops of the VDV and Naval Infantry.
The soldiers are based on Bohemia Interactives SLA troops and were reskinned to reflect modern russian troops, however they still are reskins so forgive us if lots of their gear still looks pretty soviet era like.
Also we should note that we plan to update this pack in the future adding new units and weapons.
