ArmA 3 Turns a Year Old, Everybody Gets Tanks
I'm convinced that the passage of time has increased over the last year because I can't believe it's already been an entire year since ArmA 3's first early access build launched on Steam. While I lament the lost months, Bohemia is having a much better celebration of ArmA 3's first anniversary by giving us a new piece of military equipment to play with: The M2A4 Slammer UP. The UP stands for Urban Purpose and the tank does not in fact come fitted with a thousand balloons tied to the top.
"The M2A4 Slammer UP is the urban purpose variant of the M2A1 Slammer. Compared to the base version, it features heavier armor with reinforced rear of the tank and a remote-controlled turret. This weight increase had to be compensated somewhere, which is why the M2A4 is fitted with a less powerful 105mm cannon - compared to 120mm of the base Slammer. "
Going from Alpha to Beta to Final release to working on the final DLC episode alongside that Zeus DLC we've heard so much about along with the massive development DayZ has been getting shows that nobody at Bohemia knows how to take a vacation. It's much appreciated, guys.
