Heli Pilot Coveralls are uniforms worn by NATO helicopter pilots/sailors, the AAF and with the Livonian Defense Force in ArmA 3.

Overview

Worn by the rotary-wing pilots of NATO, the Livonian Defense Force, and the AAF, Heli Pilot Coveralls offer comfort and limited amounts of blast protection. They weigh a "mass" of 60 and provide enough space for storing 40 units worth of ammunition/gear.

Heli Pilot Coveralls do not provide any resistance against ballistic projectiles, though the wearer's legs, arms and hands do apply a 70% damage reduction modifier against indirect explosions.

Camouflage

  • Sage: Sage green colour scheme. Exclusive to NATO rotary-wing aircrews and sailors.
  • Sand: Desert tan colour scheme. Only utilised by the AAF's helicopter crewmen.
  • Geometric: Woodland-themed camouflage intended to mimic the LDF's Geometric pattern. Used by the LDF's pilots.

Trivia

  • Its model is reused as a basis for several other in-game uniforms, most prominently the Driver Coveralls (added with the Karts DLC) and civilian Worker Coveralls.
    • It should also be noted that both the NATO/AAF versions lack gloves on their models, yet they strangely offer blast protection for unexplained reasons. Only the LDF version added with the release of the Contact expansion pack features a set of black gloves shown being worn.
    • Somewhat ironically, Driver Coveralls also show gloves being worn but do not reduce damage from explosions (unlike with the LDF's Heli Pilot Coveralls).
  • Despite clearly being intended for helicopter flight crews, NATO sailors are oddly depicted wearing Sage-coloured Heli Pilot Coveralls regardless of their role.
    • In reality, the U.S. Navy's flight deck crewmen always wear coloured jerseys and trousers designed to better signify their responsibilities on the flight deck; not just coloured vests as shown in-game.
The information below details unused, pre-release or removed content.
  • Several unused textures remain hidden within the game files. These range from:
    • What appears to be grey version of the AAF's Digital camouflage pattern (Texture name: coveralls_urbancamo_co.paa) with black-coloured pads
    • Another completely coloured in black (Texture name: coveralls_black_co.paa)
    • A heavily worn-out dark red-coloured version presumably meant for criminals and wanted fugitives (Texture name: coveralls_bandit_co.paa)
    • Lastly, a light grey-coloured version with pearl white stripes (Texture name: coveralls_grey_co.paa)
