Default Lashkar Valley

Since the AAS layouts got removed (scope long range rapefest) why not add something different.

Make a soviet-afghan war map of it without changing any terrain, just factions and assets.

Ironide russians (grozny desert camo) vs Taliban

AAS Std:

RUS: 2 Logis, 3 Trucks, 1 Mi-8, 1 Hind-E
Taliban: 2 ammocars, 3 Techies, 4 AA-Kits


AAS Alt:

RUS: 2 Logis, 3 Trucks, 1 Mi-8, 2 BTR80
Taliban: 2 ammocars, 3 Techies, 2 SPG-Techies

The Russians would speak German or the Germans would speak Russian. Can't change the team languages from what's defined as default, the only reason we can have USA/USMC/CF and MEIns/MEC is because they use the same language.

Name it lashkar & lashkar 1979

Well that would solve the problem. Unscoped RUS faction for Laskhar 1979

main thing is, we don't have player/vehicle textures, kit geoms etc for that era and they would need to all be made, something the community could do however

Not really. Taliban can stay as they are, and RUS should use same kits as on grozny. thats it.

The Mujahideen used quite a different set of weapons from the modern Taliban, mainly since the modern Taliban have been largely equipped by the Soviet withdrawal and what they left behind, with also sales from the fall of the Soviet union back into it. Back then they naturally didn't have anything like as many Russian weapons as the Taliban do now and afaik, mainly had Lee Enfield and other bolt action files?



Gronzy was also 5 to 10 years after the end of the Soviet-Afghan war and that is quite a bit of time for kit to change, and while I'm not aware of the exact differences, looking at some pics they look pretty different bits of kit and camo to what is seen on Gronzy?




This is also not forgetting all the little HUD and code stuff needed for both new factions, such as all the different flag icons and code to make the factions work. Putting the modern day Russians with their flag, on a map where the Soviets should be, is like putting the modern day Germans with their flag, for the PR:WW2 Germans....


But yes, if you guys want it, I would really advise you to do the work yourself as its not that technical, its more just the effort that needs to be put in and doesn't take that much to learn how to do it and if someone wanting to needs some help with it, make a topic in the community modding forums and we can point you in the right direction

Is camo that big of a deal, Falklands was rolling with modern DPM for almost a year, no?
