|Cold War Rearmed|
|Release date||23. December 2007|
The Cold War Rearmed (CWR) modification is a collaborative project with BI and community fans to bring the ever popular Cold War Crisis campaign and content into ArmA. The idea is to rework the original content to take advantage of the enhancements BI has made to the ArmA engine. As a second phase, the CWR team also plans to convert the Resistance campaign and content.
- Original OFP islands updated taking advantage of the new texture and vegetation enhancements
- New vehicles from the Cold War era
- New units textured in the Cold War era style
- OFP-like UI design
- The whole CWC and Resistance campaign
- All original SP and MP missions from BIS

Frequently Asked Questions
When is the next CWR build going to be released?
A public CWR beta has been released May 18th. See the links below for the release thread.
Will CWR be recruiting again?
Check the job offers section every here and then.
Will other Mods work with CWR?
"Last time I checked 6th Sense tracers & wound fx as well as Maddmatts FX worked like a charm together with CWR." - Mr. Burns
"QG and LowPlants works with CWR." - raedor
Is CWR creating custom classes for the units (like a normal addon/mod) or is this mod going to replace the default ArmA units.
To achieve maximum compatibility with already created OFP missions the classnames used are exactly the same as in OFP. That means when using the CWR Mod the default ArmA units will be replaced by CWR ones. It also means that your OFP missions will work with little to no changes.
Are you going to modify something regarding the AI/gameplay?
There are no plans in changing gameplay/AI, at least not more than config changes at this time.
Is CWR going to be Queens Gambit dependable?
No, CWR should be played without Queens Gambit, however you can use both together, if you want to.
Why CWR is using the Xbox soundfiles?
Due to copyright issues we cannot use the original soundfiles from OFP.
Are we able to change the soundfiles?
In theory you can do this, however since we're using the Xbox missions too there are errors because of no more existing sounds which are not played then. In the end your playing experience might be even more worse.
Is there a release planned for Arma 2 once available?
Of course! As soon as the tools for Arma 2 are released we start the porting.
Why the AKM/AK-74 has a 3 round burst mode?
Because the weapon was the same in OFP. The goal of CWR is to bring back the original feeling with all its flaws and incorrectness. For a hyper-realistic Mod see the Project'85 or A.C.E. Mods.
