Fatigues are ballistic-resistant uniforms worn by CSAT forces in ArmA 3.

Overview

The standard-issue combat uniform of all Iranian and Chinese soldiers, CSAT's Fatigues are oversuits which provide full-body protection against ballistic threats, representing the pinnacle of the alliance's technological superiority over its Western adversaries. They weigh a "mass" of 80 and provide space for up to 40 units of ammunition/items.

Fatigues are rated at Level II protection standards with the wearer's chest, abdomen, diaphragm, pelvis, legs, arms and hands each retaining a base armour value of 12, with a damage reduction modifier of 67% (aside for the hands and legs, which reduce it by 10% only). Lastly, the neck has an armour value of 8 and reduction modifier of 20%.

A set of Fatigues will allow their wearer to easily shrug off a direct hit from a single 7.62 mm bullet at point blank ranges. When paired with a ballistic-resistant vest or mil-spec plate carrier, the wearer can resist even more hits, though they must be at full "health" to survive the damage.

Lighter version that weighs only 60 "mass" and features rolled-up sleeves with no armour applied to the wearer's torso or neck, arms and hands (pelvis/legs continue to provide the same amount of ballistic protection).

The Officer Fatigues' storage capacity remains identical at 40 "mass", however. The Officer version is only available in either Arid or Tropical Hexacam schemes; an Urban variant is not available for use.

Bulkier variant with a ghillie jacket applied over the top of the uniform.

As opposed to the baseline uniform, its storage capacity has been slightly raised from 40 to 60 units. However, it should be noted that unlike dedicated ghillie suits, the jacket does not mask the wearer from infrared sensors/thermal optics.

Furthermore, it is heavier to wear and weighs a "mass" of 100 instead. Similar to Officer Fatigues, the Ghillie variant is only available in either Arid or Tropical Hexacam schemes and lacks an Urban Hexacam version.

Camouflage

  • Hex: Arid Hexacam camouflage pattern. Worn by Mediterranean CSAT soldiers.
  • Urban: Urban Hexacam camouflage pattern. Exclusive to CSAT's elite Guards units.
  • Green Hex: Tropical Hexacam camouflage pattern. Used by Pacific CSAT soldiers.

Notes

  • Due to technical limitations, units that are not actually classified as snipers will not benefit from the Ghillie variant's properties.
    • Only sniper-type classes benefit from the decreased detection range at which the wearer will be detected by both players and AI (by approximately 40% assuming no quick movements and remaining prone/motionless) due to the internal camouflage value of their infantry class.

Trivia

  • The "pants" are actually ported from the same model used for British Army troopers from ArmA 2's British Armed Forces DLC, though the rest of the model is originally made for ArmA 3.
  • The design of CSAT's Fatigues are completely fictional, but several components appear to be inspired by a few real-life technologies.
    • One such example are the suit's "mechanical" parts like the neck duct. It is an internal temperature regulating system similar to the real-world "Microclimate Cooling System" developed by the U.S. military's PEO Soldier for use by helicopter/armoured ground vehicle crews.
The information below details unused, pre-release or removed content.
  • An unused texture (Texture name: clothing_rus_co.paa) camouflaged with the AAF's Digital pattern remains hidden within the game's files, though it features a patch with the Russian flag attached to the shoulders.
    • This texture was actually intended for use with the Raven Security sub-faction, a Russian private military company which was meant to appear in the pre-Alpha iterations of ArmA 3 (the faction itself does not make an appearance in the final version of the game).
