Full Size Ghillie Suit
New, WishlistPublic

Description

The Ghillie suit released today with the sniper pack is more like a Head & shoulders suit, it only covers your upper back body, which makes it pointless if you are kneeling/Standing, and almost pointless from any direction except except straight forward lying down since not even the back of your legs are covered.

Make a full body covered Ghillie suit! The whole point with the suit is to blend in! {F19732}

Actually you have many kind of ghillie suits also full body ones.

Would be nice to have both and since they already have the models
from prior games, it wouldn't be too hard or time consuming to implement.

Up voted.

-EDIT-

A bit more time consuming I guess but would be even better to have ghillie suits
as clothing, that you can take off like any other uniform.
Don't know if it's already like that, if it is disregard this edit :)

(I) don't really need full ghillie suits, they look fine as they are (better than some half ghillie suits in A2)

Full-body ghillies are actually in the game (were in previous version's files)

related to #0008571

Yes somewhat related, though here i also ask for full frontal cover! seeming any stances except prone and it doesnt give any cover!

AD2001 added a comment.Jun 6 2013, 1:10 PM

Are you asking to cover the legs and arms or the frontal part? If you're asking for the legs and arms, that would be nice, but if you're asking to cover the frontal part, that's not very realistic because IRL the frontal part isn't covered . http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/ef/Hires_2010-10-20-081038c.jpg/800px-Hires_2010-10-20-081038c.jpg

Actually there's all kind of versions. Why do people talk about whats realistic when they know nothing about it?

Full body ghillies suits will be added in the beta. They were shown in beta livestreams and also exist in game files.

The military usually uses ghillie suits without frontal coverage so you can store your ammo and not need to take of the whole suit just to take it.

Frontal coverage just doesn't make sense.

Any ghillies naked on the front for working in prone.

Why people continue to argue?
different armies/units have diferent Ghillie Suits.

All you people think that it should not cover the fron part
because it will get stuck in the vegitation while prone.
while true in a way, those snipers still need to
walk and they want to maintain camouflage also when crouche/standing.

In any way, you have so many types of Ghillie Suits,
to say that front covering Ghillie Suits are not realistic is
one big BS.

I will find a picture I myself took of a sniper in my unit back in the days
and will show you all, not a picture from google.
a personal picture of a realistic real life sniper during training.

Look at my previous note.

I didn't say there are no ghillie suits like that
I merely said you have also ghillie suits that cover the front.

It's not such a big deal to take out a mag from under the ghillie suit.
I will find the image, can't find it now, it's somewhere in the closet.

It really depends what are your needs. you have many types,
That is all I am saying.

You don't need to cover the whole body while standing. It can't fool anyone, no one will think it's a bush or something. When you need to be "invisible", you just go prone.

sorry AD2001, but how can I say this, not true at all.
I don't know what is going on on other militaries, but I am sure
most modern armies operate more or less by the same doctrine.

Here in Israel, while we still were inside south lebanon, (a dense flora environment)
making 100 hours (or more) ambushes to Hezbollah soldiers was a routine.

It was typically done by sitting inside a bush camouflaged and just waiting.
most of time you were just observing, actual engagements were pretty rare.
you could lie down but it was much more comfortable to sit.

people would sleep in turns, you would pee in a plastic bottle and take a dump
inside a burlap sack with a nylon inside it. you would stand sometimes to stretch
your legs. you practically lived inside a bush. you really think you would lie
down without moving for so long?

and lets not forget that one have to move from a position to position,
having a frontal cover will help the camouflage also while on the go.

Let me clear this up. Snipers take positions in many different ways. Standing, crouched, up against a tree sometimes, in bushes, on ridges, anywhere. There are many different ghillie suits. In Canada, we have many, for many different scenarios. Mostly though, they are full suits, almost like fatigues. You can store ammo in them. I've seen a sniper climb a tree and stand in the top, and i tell you, at first sight, you would never know. Never. If the front were not covered in this position in particular, on the other hand, you would probably notice. Case and point, having both variants, will be VERY realistic. After all A3 is a Mil Sim, and BI are working on making the best. Be Patient.

+1 Up Vote.

so true and sad that it suportet on 2013 i mean this is really like a semi full gilli its pointless that its just on the back +1 for 2015 guys xD

check out my hidden_ghillies (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=400754572) mod or check out g00d69's mod that inspired the majority of my mod's configuration. they include full body ghillies and i can create more if you have textures that you would like me to add.

Debug, i am pretty sure you cant make publicity for your mod here

ya thats right dr_death xD and to DarkSideSixOfficial note on 2013!! i think we was patient enough and nothing happened!
