Next Generation Armory - (NGSW + more) **LEGACY**

Description
PLEASE NOTE THIS SPECIFIC VERSION WILL NOT SEE ANY FURTHER UPDATES


Next Generation Armory is an effort to add the most modern (and futuristic) real-world weapons to ArmA 3.


The initial focus of the mod is the NGSW (Next Generation Squad Weapon) program to replace the US Army's M4.


Currently, the mod includes:
M7 Spear
M7 Raptor (short barrel Spear)
M250 - 6.8mm Autorifle
M338 - .338 Norma Magnum MMG
MK22 ASR - Multicaliber long-range rifle.
XM157 - Smart Scope
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-What the mod will have EVENTUALLY:
-MORE weapons (including newly announced/revealed ones)
-Integration with other mods
Fully custom reload animations
------------------------------------------------------

If you don't know about the NGSW program...

The NGSW rifles fire in the new 6.8x51mm bullet. However each of them has different methods of making the casing and as a result their own quirks and advantages. The INSANE ballistics required by the NGSW program lead to very effective results. With an average muzzle velocity of over 3000 ft/s with a 137 grain bullet out of a roughly 13-inch barrel, it’s purpose is to be able to defeat modern body armor at extended distances. It does this with a chamber pressure of around 80,000 psi, around that of a tank-cannon.

Now what if I’m not a firearms nerd and that whole paragraph just confused me? Well, to put it in simple terms, this is a bullet that’s about halfway between the 5.56 (M4/M16) and 7.62 (SCAR-H, M14) in terms of caliber, but WAY faster than both. This is a bullet that says “well the SCAR hits hard, but the M4 is fast and accurate” and then instead of compromising it just does both of those things at the same time...twice.

As I said, ANYONE WHO WANTS TO HELP can comment and/or message me, we're looking to expand so any expertise in any field is welcomed.

No mag counter in inventory, and inconsistent reload sounds/animations.

Where is the RM277?

Yeah, having a non-ace version of the mod would be nice

Hi, could you please make the components that required ACE3(I think its XM157 scope) as a side mod that required the main one, so we could use these rifles without ACE?

honestly, great guns, just need a few sounds to be better, the ammo needs some images and the scope be adjusted a teensy bit.

please bring back the RM227 :(

the guns are way to quiet, and there is no sound when reloading.
