Krataniel posted a topic in ARMA 3 - ADDONS & MODS: COMPLETEHello everyone! I have been diving into the ACE Advanced Ballistics recently, as our unit decided to try and add a dedicated Sniper team to our roster. After a few weeks of testing and reading guide/watching tutorials (none of which seem to know everything, had to figure out stuff by researching real life ballistics and dive into the config files), I think I have a decent grasp of the mechanics, and our first Sniper team trials work prefectly. Right now, we are using a modded Sniper Weapon System (SWS) with a G1 ballistic coefficient, which pairs well with the C1 model used by the AtragMX ballistic calculator, so all is good. That being said, we might want to expand in the future to allow the team to field a variety of SWS, so I have been scouting other modded weapons. The community has made some awesome models and weapons in general, but I noticed many of those are coded with the G7 drag model (in their config files, I mean). Now, I know G7 is better suited for long-range shooting, as it is made for a boat-tailed bullet, whereas the G1 model is for flat-based bullets, so I'd be all for using G7. The issue is that the AtragMX only computes with C1 (which is pretty close to G1), and not with G7, and this won't change anytime soon (I specifically asked one of the ACE modders). My question would be: how would you use a G7-coded weapon with the AtragMX? So far, here's the solutions I've gathered: I know one can calibrate the drag model with the Truing Tool, but that would give a new C1 value. Would that work? Would it be better to tweak the config of the weapon with a G1 BC? I found a Ballistic coefficient converter online, would converting to C1 and then truing the BC work? Someone suggested using real-life calculators, like Applied ballistics, but we'd rather keep it in-game as much as possible, and we can't really ask all of our snipers to buy a 30 dollars app. If anyone has a good suggestion, I'd be grateful and all ears! 😄
SOG is a North America based Arma 3 unit modelled after the Special Operations Group within the CIA Special Activities Division. We are extending an invitation to personnel interested in becoming Paramilitary Operations Officers, running operations on a different level than typical fire and maneuver combat performed by infantry units. The atmosphere at SOG is more relaxed, as we have all been a part of previous milsim units. No need to report in, finish statements with “Sir!” nor address members by rank. We have a Teamspeak 3 and Arma 3 server and primarily use TS3 and Discord for communications. Events/Operations The main operation typically takes place on Saturdays at 9PM EST Other events and training may take place weekly or as determined. Our servers are online 24/7 with the exception of maintenance, so our members can additionally gather/play at any time. Requirements: Minimum age of 18 Teamspeak 3 with Microphone Fluent in English Arma 3 installed Potential Paramilitary Operations Officers will be assessed on the following basic criteria before acceptance: Land Navigation Radio Communication/TFAR ACE Advanced Medical Skills Room Clearing/CQB and POS ID ACE Explosives Overall fit for the unit Further skills on the individual and team level may be trained and developed after entrance. To join or if you have questions, please message one of these members on steam: Board__Gamer DareThrylls Arondight Join us on Discord!
Hello everyone, after briefly learning how to snipe on Ace by watching videos i've got some questions that YouTube wasn't able to answer. First of all i'm using the Intervention along with the Vector 21 so i can sync data to the ATragMX without copying and pasting all the time, after that i get the temperature, the humidity and the barometric pressure from the Kestrel 4500 and copy-paste it on the ATragMX. I auto-set the crosswind and the headwind and get the average Wind SPD of around 30 seconds, and i paste the min on 1 on the Wind Speed on the Target tab of the ATragMX followed by the max value on 2 and then the wind direction, if the min and max are the same then i just input the same value on both fields. Finally i take the shot and re-adjust properly if i miss. I collect all the data standing up without being blocked by bushes/trees. Is there any way to collect the wind data more efficiently? Cause most of the time my shots are landing left or right of the enemy, and am i inputting the wind correctly inside ATragMX because almost all the people i've watched are doing it differently (most of my shots are on ~1400km). If i missed anything i will explain it, just ask for it.
