NATO SF and Russian Spetsnaz WEAPONS for A3

Recommended Posts

Hey Massi, can you confirm; does this mod use higher damage values for the weapons/ammo (eg: bullet mass? muzzle velocity? penetration? etc?) than what is in the vanilla weapons?

Ever since the ADAPT update, I've found your weapons are dropping CSAT units way too easily!

7.62 will OSK a CSAT soldier within 120m and 5.56 never takes more than 3 (and that's leg shots!)

I'm actually considering going back to the vanilla weapons just so the AI are a challenge again :p

Im not Massi, but I just want to chip in here. A while ago there were complaints that the weapons are too underpowered against CSAT, and now you're bringing up its too overpowered?

That's actually how it is in vanilla.

I'm asking if the latest update might have made Massi's weapons more powerful than he had wanted them to be. ;)

That's actually how it is in vanilla.

Oh really? So it only takes 1-2 shots to down a target even with the vanilla weapons now? I did not realise that this was the case. Guess I've been rocking Massi's HK's too much recently haha

Thank you very nice HK416! :)

I'm glad if you will append a AAC suppressor for HK416 someday.

I am using the NT4 suppressor now.

NATO SF and RUSSIAN SPETSNAZ WEAPONS for A3

Hi all,

I’ve updated my weapon pack in the few spare time I’ve got ;)

First of all I’d like to thanks BI for releasing their great A2/OA MLODs wich made possible to include in this update new weapons such as A-A launchers, A-T launchers, Bizon, FN FAL, shotguns, and also Vilas again for a compete new family of Ak74M and Ak74M GL with rails for Special Forces.

I tried to fix few issues reported by users, work is still slowly proceeding, the addon is still under development and I’ll work in spare time to complete the pack (for now future plans include adding SCAR family rifles in near future to equip my US Rangers).

Hope you’ll enjoy the update, off course I’ll update as soon as possible also my units in order to equip them with the new weapons included in this pack , and thank you very much to all of you for your support and suggestions ;) !

Installation.

Put the addon in "mod folder" of your preference and load it trough steam app properties, weapon boxes are in editor as follow:

Empty >> Ammo >> NATO SF\Spetsnaz Weapons: All weapons

Empty >> Ammo >> NATO SF Weapons: US,UK and italian SF weapons with optics

Empty >> Ammo >> Spetsnaz Weapons: GRU Spetsnaz weapons with optics

Please remember to REMOVE the old "mas_us_rifle_fhq_c.pbo" since it will brake the new version of the addon.

If you wish to use FHQ accessories just add to modfolder the ASDG joint rails optional config called : "asdg_jointrails_mas_weapons.pbo" and it will make weapons compatible with them.

Requirements.

Massi, when you say you updated your config are you still entertaining the idea of splitting the mod into only NATO and only RUS stuff?

Hey Massi! Outstand and unexpected update!

I have a couple of suggestions/recommendations from running through the weapons so far! :o

-M1014 and Saiga 12ga pellet spread is craaaaaaazy! The pellets should all stay in a tight spread out to about 25-50m when they'll start to lose terminal velocity. The spread was over 20 feet at ~50m. Also the ammo type says 12 cal instead of 12ga. And lastly the flashlight/IR laser on the M1014 conflicts where the front hand is holding the shotgun.

-M136 AT4 - Could you make this disposable and rangable?

Overall sweet update. Keep up the great work!

Great to see these still being updated. They and the UK SFSG skins are still our go-to packs for 99% of the missions we do.

Thanks :)

Do you think you will be looking at textures at some point ? i.e. higher resolutions ?

Awesome, thank you so much Massi.

Your mod is the one addon I require for every mission I make. Absolutely won't play Arma 3 without it.

EDIT - Oh boy... I´ve just overwrited the old files and there was still an optional config from the second update (to use FHQ accessories and R3F scopes) left that FUBARED the whole mod...

As He-man would advice: Kids, remember to remove all old files from massi´s mods or else you will end up like this ingame:

Now I´ve got all fixed... cheers!

Thank you very much for this mod man. New weapons are awesome. The PDF file with class names is top notch!

Simple testing: The benelli seems to be able to destroy small buildings with like a "magazine" (since it loads like one still; not detracting, that would be a difficult addition to animate shells being loaded individually.)

Hey!

Awesome update.

Just a little complaint: Shotgun pellet spread is outrageous - its now somewhere around 2-3 meter group @ 10 meters and in reality 0.5-1 meter group @ 20 meters would be closer, you can get some data from google. @ 5 meters you should only have a single hole since the pellets wont start spreading immedeatly they come out of the barrel.

Not that big deal, it just makes pellets quite unusable right now :)

Edit:

Heres a few pics:

"Big" group, no choke, normal wad, 20 yards:

http://i1094.photobucket.com/albums/i442/Odin65/Mossberg%20500%20various%20barrels%20and%20ammo/IMG_2603.jpg

"Small" group", no choke, flight control wad, 20 yards:

http://i1094.photobucket.com/albums/i442/Odin65/Mossberg%2020%20inch%20Persuader/IMG_3621.jpg

So with good ammo and a choke you can go even smaller than that. So the current pellet spread is something from battlefield 3 or something :rolleyes:

And few "bugs":

M249 Can load 30rd mags, this shouldnt happen, i guess?

Adding a suppressor to M16 makes it shoot full auto?

It is in fact designed to take a STANAG 30round. So your SAW gunner isn't completely fucked in dire situations.

Kind of like the RPK takes the drum or standard 30round mag.

It's great that you are still keep your stuff updated! Just a little issue I had is that weapons have too loud sounds compared to JSRS 2.0 sounds. So when someone is shooting 1km away it sounds like 200 meters.

Keep up in good work! Nice to see you back!

Hi Massi,

Thank you for this. Your work on this is much appreciated. Would it be at all possible to release the RU weapons as part of a separate pack for opfor units? I ask only because our unit currently is using weapons from the RH, R3F, and BWMod packs for western weapons. To add all of NATOSF to our pack would mean tons and tons of duplicate weapons (mainly M16/M4 variants) clogging up VAS.

What we would really love is a pack with just the russian-made weapons so that we play with Middle east irregulars without a bunch of duplicate weapons. Any chance you could make that happen?
