You can not install 3ds max files directly to Armada or Armada2.

Files in this format are meant for modders and artists which want to use them to create their own version of these, or use them to create 3D Artwork.

You need to have either one of these programs / editors: 3ds Max or Milkshape.

Guessing from your writing, I assume that you have no prior knowledge of 3D Modeling.

Therefore I recommend that you get yourself a copy of Milkshape. It is a shareware program, easy to learn, and will cost you around 35 USD to get the licence key.

If you have Milkshape you can import the 3ds max files and add the hierarchy of meshes and hardpoints Armada 1and 2 need.
Then you have to export them to SOD format, before they are useable in Armada1 or 2.

If you want to learn how to do it, go to the tutorials section and get all the necessary documents.
