I had this problem prior to the new NV's being added.

Any chance of a mod or dev acknowledging this ticket exists?
Even the ability to assign the old one to units in the editor/scripting would be good.
This would at least take away the odd looking patrols all swinging their arm.
I get that it might be on a sling etc
Thing is not every single person is going to walk like that, it looks horrible when you have large groups walking about.
I always thought you were meant to keep both hands on your weapon.
Different type for each weapon would be cool.
But like I said above I'll settle for my soldier having both hands on his weapon and not strutting about like a twat.
The current walk with the weapon lowered animation is bloody ridiculous. Why does my soldier have to swagger like some airsofter dickhead?
It looks even worse if you have a few patrols all walking exactly the same or if you jog while doing it.
The old Arma 2 one looked a lot better than this nonsense.
Had this myself.
I fixed it by having the AI move into position from the outside.
How would you move without using your arms?

"i have no problem with realism, thats the point im making. why bother even having the thing. and besides, if you shoot someone in the leg 3 or 4 times they just drop dead, is that realistic too?"
Yes, if I shot you multiple times in the leg you would die pretty quick through blood loss.
I've had this issue also, not only with diving suits but with the other gear as well.
I noticed that if you drop the items of clothing on the ground first you can then put them on, rather than trying to wear them straight from the crate.
