As an introduction to the Modern Arms mod, you can now play three missions bringing modern Soviet and Russian/Ukrainian weapons into Sudden Strike 3. Updated to Version 4 on 5 October 2023 with some corrections: Battle of the Siverskyi Donets (Ukraine) First Battle of Lyman (Russia) Soledar Encirclement (PMC Wagner)
Installation description is included.
Changelog to Version 4:
*improved destruction effects on apartment blocks (rubble)
*adjusted properties of the NSV machine guns on Russian and Ukrainian tanks to match DShK as these weapons are more comparable than previous placeholder (more damage now)
*reworked T90M armor to reduce resistance against cumulative, explosive, and subcalibre damage types in tests between peer tank types Leopard 2 and M1 Abrams
*changed .50 cal machine guns (modern versions only) damage type to pierce (can destroy light armor with sustained fire)
*changed NSV machine gun damage type to pierce (can destroy light armor with sustained fire)
*changed KPVT machine gun damage type to pierce and increased it (can destroy light armor with sustained fire)
*changed NSV shooting sounds from US to the Soviet default heavy machine gun sound for a closer match
*gave KPVT its own sound scheme using unclaimed sound effects from original game after checking sounds of the real weapon
*relabelled T-90's secondary weapon as Kord MG (but no change to its capability except the above changes)
*split ammo to two types containing their real life ammo quantities for APCs like BTRs and BRDMs that have a strong 14.5mm mg and a lighter general mg
*set extended dead zone for mgs on tank roofs and any Soviet 12.7mm or 14.5mm guns, to encourage tanks use coaxial armament at closer ranges
*removed the rocket bombardment script from the Centaur class fast assault craft in the Russian Snake Island scenario due to errors and replaced it with off-map artillery bombardments
*removed all scripts based on unit losses to check progress, as the scripts produced different results in tests and final product; replaced these with scripts based on amount of time passed for enemy progress or player's unit locations for player's progress
*reworked fuel rate and quantity on mlrs units based on tracked platforms, to resemble tanks (TOS-1 and M270)
*reset parameters in all scenarios to match changes to unit ammunition, fuel
