Thank you for reporting the issue.
We need crash dump files from this folder to analyze your problem.
C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3\
Can you upload somewhere in winrar package, please?
Archive smaller than 5000 KB can be attached directly to the ticket. For bigger archives, please use some free sharing service and post link here.

How to find correct crashdump file:
Try to make the crash happen
Look into crashdump folder
Upload crashdump with latest date in name (crashdump is rpt + bidmp + mdmp file with same name). Please try to provide as many crashdumps as possible, it helps us investigating the problem in a big way.

Thank you.

im have add the crashlog

Maybe I have some additional information regarding this ticket. I was building a 3D preview for my Map Builder editor put people complained about random crashes. Looks like some models, like the (shiny) fuelstation crashes ArmA3. Also some people reported, that they have random crashes with previewing objects that worked before. So I conclude that invoking ctrlsetmodel often with different models can crash A3 too.
So ctrlsetmodel has probably two problems: Some objects crash A3 and switching often crash A3.

Anyone can reproduce this error by installing Map Builder 0.7 and quickly go through the objects library or directly go to fs_pump (or other fs_*** objects).

Here is one more dump, hopefully this will speed up things.
in this case i tried to load model _ctrl ctrlsetmodel "laserTgt.p3d"
as you can see it have no path to file. only file name.

In the same time loading _ctrl ctrlsetmodel "\A3\Weapons_f\laserTgt.p3d"
is perfectly legal and works fine.

In this specific case this is clearly config error, some one specified not full path but only file name.

it is also confirmed that following will crash A3 100%
_ctrl ctrlsetmodel "";

VehicleConfigs often have many base classes with wrong or empty model info.
By model info I mean (configfile >> "CfgVehicles" >> "my_vehicle_name" >> "model")
And there is no way to detect for sure if it is correct or not.

Finally config may present while model is missing.

Most likely things are much harder inside arma, than i might imagine.
But all is needed is to check if given model exists/loaded, and if it is not
found, load "\A3\Weapons_F\empty.p3d"
