FROM: High Command
TO: Arma 3 Users
UNIT: Main Branch
ACTIVITY: Game Update 1.78 (Tac-Ops Mission Pack, Vehicle Physics Update, BattlEye Port Separation)
SIZE: ~7.8 GB / ~1.1 GB (depends on Apex ownership)

Consider using the Steam client option to verify the integrity of the local game cache to avoid corrupted data after downloading this update.
Consider defragmenting your HDD after downloading large updates.
Updating a deeply moddable game and its platform is not without risks. We use various methods to communicate upcoming changes to our awesome modding community, such as via the Dev Hub. We also co-operate directly on troubleshooting, and we offer an opportunity to test updates via our Release Candidate tests. Modders, server administrators and other members of the community do their best to prepare for updates and to address issues post-release as quickly as possible. Please be mindful of some interruptions (especially in the first hours / days after a release) while we all work to improve the game together.
A Legacy Build Steam branch is available for advanced users. It contains the previous significant main branch version (1.76). It can be used to compare specific changes between major releases. The access code for this branch is: Arma3Legacy176
This update does not apply to the experimental Linux and Mac port betas at time of writing. We hope to be updating those as soon as possible.
You can find the servers in the Steam library (switch the filter to "Tools") - "Arma 3 Server" (based on your OS, it will download the Windows or Linux version).
Administrators can also use the command-line SteamCMD utility. The app ID is to be 233780.

<< Captain, first things first.  You'll be answering directly to me now.  The Boss has been handed new things on her plate that take priority.

>> Aye sir.

<< I've been following your battle-feed over the last couple of weeks.  This proxy war there on Madrigal has made quite a turn.  I haven't seen your report for Kidnap yet however.  What's the status on that?

>> Sir, we moved in as directed to disrupt their oil supply in the north as well as recover President-Mediator Samatar, however once at the presidential palace it was discovered that the PM has been deceased for some time.

<< Deceased?

>> Aye sir.  His compound did not have any Molatian government forces there for security.  We encountered URF personnel as well as recovered the personal journal of a Battle-Jumper we believe to be from the Gao Republic sir.

<< Battle-Jumpers eh?  You realize the difficult time we've had with them and the insurrection on Gao yes?

>> Aye sir, and while we can't confirm that we engaged them directly it is of popular opinion that there may be a compliment of jumpers here on Madrigal working with the Molation & URF goverment here.  In the engagement we took pretty heavy casualties sir.  It's almost as if they expected us to go there.  Here's the report sir.


<< Got it Captain.  Stand by.

<< How has Edson's battalion been fairing?

>> They've been a welcome asset sir.  They've been fairly successful in pushing the main line of resistance north as well as keeping disorder in the overtaken areas fairly minimal.  His air assets were able to stretch their legs a bit during this past mission helping the 83rd provide air security and take out some targets.

<< Good to hear.  I'm sending him orders to continue pushing his forces up the eastern and western coasts.  This Senator-General Jama that you're dealing with is a sneaky bastard but by god we will crush him.  For now, martial law remains in effect.  Any civilians you see outside after dusk is considered hostile.  It is unfortunate, I know, but these people need to realize that we aren't the badguys here.

>> Aye sir.

<< I'm sending you the supply vessel "Diligent".  It should be arriving by weeks end with a full resupply of food, medical, and armament for your ODST's.  It is also carrying a compliment of air assets to be allocated to Edson's battalion along with some freshly minted assets for the 83rd.

>> Aye sir, that will be a welcome sight.

<< That will be all for now Captain.  Keep me informed, and tell your chief of aviation to stop losing these things.  They aren't cheap you know.

>> Aye, aye sir!

>>To The Commanding Officer of the 17th ODST,

>> I send this communication with some dissatisfaction as the fallout of the Black Eagles' collapse of leadership has resulted in the addition to yet more turbulence to an already miserable situation. 

>> While this has indeed crippled the organization and created an inter-power play between the various lieutenants that exist within the cartel the very same chaos has befuddled any abilities to reign any 

>> form of control over these criminals.While larger scale criminal activities have likely ceased, smaller crime waves may occur with more frequency. 

>> However, not all is lost. Your dismantling of the URF controlled airbase has awarded the eastern Councilmen some ease and as such their checkbooks have opened up. I too am very pleased with the
