This event repeats every week on Monday forever
Arma 3's Malden DLC is the updated version of the Malden terrain from Arma: Cold War Assault called Malden 2035. It is a FREE DLC, and runs every Monday night on the StrayaGaming Tanoa/Malden server.
This is an infantry focussed map, and provides a lot of fun for players who like to work in a squad.
The island of Malden is small, with a population of around 500. Historically, it was a French territorial possession during the early 1800's, but was then captured by the Russian Imperial Navy after the Napoleonic Wars. It maintains a distinct French influence, despite Russian occupation.
In the 1960s Malden became a NATO outpost. Although the nearest major NATO base was in West Germany during 1985, Malden was considered not important enough and was left with only a minor presence. Now CSAT have determined it to be of strategic importance.
