  1. Production "AK-12" is just a cosmetically modified AK-74M and thus has no bolt hold open tab as it's internally the same old AKM/AK74. Prototypes had bolt hold open system and a G36 style bolt release in front of the trigger. The whole AK12 is a Pentagon Wars level of cash grab that resulted in binning of all the good ambi features and adoption of "M16A4" style of update 20 years too late.
  2. The AK-12 prototype present in A3 had the bolt hold open system. Old AKs should not lock as mentioned above.

    you need supercomputer to play this game

    SSDs bruf. 1 100gb for the OS 1 1tb for stuff like games ArmA depends mostly on CPU clock and storage speed (any DDR4 RAM also helps). You can have a DDR3 HDD monster rig and struggle. You can have a cheapo DDR4 SSD APU thing and the game will fly. I have a 16gb DDR4 + AMD 2400G APU + SSD cheapo thing as second PC for LAN parties and it sometimes runs circles around my 2015 DDR3 i7 970GTX main build.

    Conspiracies for OFP was some really good stuff! Will keep an eye on this for sure!
  5. I know it's an AK-15 but not. The mag is just outright bent too steep in the middle. Weird thing: the AKM steel mag is the right shape while the AK-15 12 is too bent.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Counter ATGM / SAM systems are being used for some years now. They have some drawbacks and some huge bonuses (until they run empty tho). Israel, US and EU are getting in on the APS game big time as well. RF simply rushed the new stuff for the '15 parade and it shows. If you dig deep enough you can see them constantly adding or removing stuff by the year.

    Arma 3 Aegis

    And it's used that way (in recent years) either for training, red berets selection or by low-tier internal / police units in urban / crowd control cases. Military / internal SOF spray camie / cover everything: helmets, non-camo pouches, rifles etc. I've written it on other treads, but just once more: these SOF look like "random token badguys" from 80-90s action movies and nothing like either green "totally-not-RF-Marine-Reccies" in '14 or SOF in the Syrian sandbox.
  8. Russian SOF are pretty much the "token badguy" types from 80's action movies. BTW even AK-12s are weird in some ways: - 30rd mag has a wrong shape (way too curved) -7.62 suppressor is still too longman The overall visual concept for RuSoF is just lazy / bad design (even disregarding realism n stuff) The VO is cringy at best. A2 had better ones (how can you go backwards from THAT 😅)
  9. The mysterious green ones 😉

    Arma 3 Aegis

    Spraypainted gun + reflective af helmet = ...recon? 😅 Because getting popped in the shiny head a mile away is S T E A L T H 😀
  11. OG OFP SP content literally proves this statement false and uneducated.

    NO, BIS, NO.

    I can. First A3 official content I won't buy. Didn't buy GM because paid mods but that's only semi-official. At this point i'm just fucking done being a blind BI fanboy.
  13. Same here. Got the OFP and Res CDs in 2005 - didn't know mods even existed. The campaigns and atmosphere were so powerful it turned me into a Cold War history buff. Before that I was mostly fond of your regular GTA-3s and NFS-U2s with a healthy dose of Half-Life 1/2 and MoHAA/CoD. Didn't really care for realism and the like. Then I experienced the "After Montignac" mission... Even DOOM3 didn't scare my teenage-ass nearly as much as that moment you had to sneak, shoot and crawl your wounded self out of those fucking treelines. And then there were the epic mods like COMBAT! US vehicles, the OG RHS and ORCS Soviet and RF stuff, the terrains, the various FFURs and many campaigns. The closest i've gotten to feeling even 1/10th of those feels was the modded campaign for A1 "Moloch", Eagle Wing and parts of Laws of War. And now, with Contact, well... let's just write that it has alienated my inner BI fanboy completely. / overly-dramatic rant = end

    Arma 3 DLC - CONTACT

    Literally almost all of A2\DayZ ports and new stuff isn't enterable or best case has a room or a staircase + external ladders. The best structure is the abandoned airfield hangar. Very Stalker\Metro (the whole map feels like it tbh). PS: Still wouldn't buy the DLC but I had the Supporters Edition so...
