About-
============
The FN Minimi came about as a project to take the heavy and not readily portable FN MAG GPMG and create a more modern, man-portable Light Machine Gun. Initial prototypes for Minimi were built for 7.62x51mm, with the switch to 5.56x45mm NATO coming relatively late in it's development. The resulting LMG was probably a little heavier than it could have been, but certainly still fit the bill, so was adopted en masse. The pack covers the majority of the the Minimi/M249's service life, primarily bracketting from the ealy 1990s to the current day.

The pack supports the use of,either directly or through optional addons
- Community Upgrade Project: Magazines (Additional PBO)
- RHS Escalation: Magazines (Additional PBO)
- ACE3: Ballistics (Directly)
- AGM: Ballistics, Overheating,Barrel Changes, Bipods (Directly)
- Rutherberg's Advanced Ballistics: Ballistics (Directly)
- CSE: Bipods (Directly)
- TMR: Bipods/Autorest (Directly)
NOTE - AGM and CSE both no longer are updating and their inclusion in support is for legacy support to groups not yet switching over to ACE.
NOTE2- Across all ballistics functionality added; Minimis use 1:7in(178mm) Twist barrels, M249 1:12(305) Twist.

Whenever i load RHS belts the model always seems to revert to the NI arm belts. (fires rhs bullets but the belt model itself is the NIArms one)

Tracers are bugged for the Mk48

Any plan to make a mk48 mod 1 and 0 short barrel version? (not mk46)

I need to find the Czech person who conflated those two systems in a certain very official announcement post.

Magazine Wells = you can load more mags into more guns and shoot them
Magazine Proxies = the mag-part of the model is defined by the magazine itself

NIArms beltfeds use the magwell system. They use the magproxy system FOR STICKMAGS. They do NOT use the magproxy system for belts.

RHS mags, especially the belts, are also in the wrong magwells. You need to use the All-in-One compatibility mod, make your own, or petition with RHS to move over to CBA magwells like everybody else.

@Ulmann Mk46 does not have the magazine well in real life, so it wouldn't accept the 20 or 30-round magazines. SOCOM did this to save weight and also because it's honestly not that useful, you get a lot of reliability issues when using it.

@[S2] Still A Lime,

Hello, thanks for update, but there is problem: On Mk48 and Mk46 (mod 0 and 1) don't working magazines proxies (I try reload with RHS magazines), any way to fix/

@blutze - appreciate the words. Definitely from this point that's what's happening, at least until the NBN rolls around the corner here. Going to chalk it up to growing pains.
anyway, got you bug message on the MK46, that's fixed as part of the SW update htat just happened. the other mirrors are getting it ASAP

Let me preface this with: PLEEEAAAASE just hand over single files to your minions and let them deal with the actual uploading to all the mirrors, including assembling the all-in-one .rar file. Almost lost my mind watching you lose your mind this week.
That being said, the Mk 46s get magswitched to hlc_lmg_minimi_railed every time I change to a different magazine, and when selecting them in the ACE arsenal (meaning, you effectively can't select them there - old loadout works though). Happens both on the all-in-one .rar from updatedtuesdays and the new SWS upload, with AUG+G3 patches and same-source RHS+ACE compat files running. Haven't tested any standalone-ish setups.
Oh and while we're at it, RHS recently added leaded M855 sticks that are missing in the magswitch configs and the compat mods.
