Nice series of screenshots Meng.  Are these singleplayer missions or is this co-op multiplayer?

These are all single player...basically I play in the editor.

Gotcha.  That's a good idea.
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

Don't know what mods they were using, but Rimmy and various friends played a Market-Garden map in Arma3 recently:

Wargame review on the new DLC: https://www.wargamer.com/reviews/arma-3-contact/

Seems pretty underwhelming, but I'll play through it regardless.

   The signals thing sounds interesting -- but a little above the scale of ARMA at least for WWII (where signals intelligence would be used at the divisional level or above).  I guess knocking out the other side's listening posts could be an objective (like the Australians did at Thompson's Post during second El Alamien when they captured most of the DAK's signals experts one night).

^ I do quite like the idea of that.  Great screenshots, btw -- moreso than the new DLC, they've been my inspiration to reinstall Arma 3 and load up some WW2 mods ;)

I imagine that this has already been asked but... what are the good WWII mods.
Thanks.

  I got faces of war which seems to include the remains of forgotten fronts plus Last Days of the Empire.  I also ended up with whatever GIEST is (I think by getting Osttruppen) and also the Czech 1938 army which also covers Germans for 1938-1945.  You end up with a ton of maps and plenty of infantry in all kinds of uniforms and the focus varies widely.  You can't get the US 2nd Infantry Division for example, but you can get lots of weird Ukranian and Kazak units.  I'm not sure what I'd recommend exactly.  The  maps are a mixed lot and the equipment is spotty and redundant at the same time.
