About-
============
The story of the Arctic Warfare Magnum pretty much mirror's the rise of it'smaker- Accuracy International. What started in the 1980s with the then small-time manufacturer winning the contract to replace the Enfield L42A1 (No.4 SMLE "Sporting" rifle) with it's Arctic Warfare rifle- adopted as the L96, grew markedly with it's success with LE,Military and Sporting shooters. From there, really the only way was up, and within the decade, Accuracy International began looking at building it's successor- Something in purpose-built Long-range calibers. The result: the Arctic Warfare Magnum, available in factory chamberings of 7mm Mauser, .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua Magnum (AKA Moly-coated $10 Bills). Essentially the same rifle as the AW with a few slight alterations to make the weapon more sturdy with the stouter rounds- Redesigned chassis, Buttspike (Not Included), Muzzle Brake and Barrel fluting are amongs the improvements.

This pack covers Two variants of the Magnum family, one real, one fake, in one caliber (.300 Win Mag, because WIN MAG):
The AWM (Technically AWM-F) and the AWC-M ( A bastard hybrid of an AWM and an AWCovert. The narrative excuse is it is a limited run, purpose-built contract order by a PSC, though that doesn't excuse it being wildly impractical). The original model(which was the AWC) comes from my now-mothballed project For Hire, but I got enough interest in it that I revived it for Arma3.

Additional notes-
- Supports ACE Ballistics. AWM has a 24" Barrel with a 279.4mm twist, AWC-M has a 16" barrel (Shrouded with suppressor) 203mm twist.
- While it's not a dependency of the AWMs, I highly, HIGHLY reccommend running this with Kerc's Weapon Eventhandleer Framework (http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?192780-Weapon-Eventhandler-Framework). I designed this mod with the use of it in mind, BUT it can run without it. Please show some love and use it

Why make some of the rifles ghillied if there's no suppressor attachment?

How can I retexture this weapon?

Does this mod still need the Weapon Eventhandler Framework version 1.2 to assist? I was playing Arma 3 Invasion and Annex on the Signal Hill server tonight and I ran into an issue where the rifle would only fire once, then wouldn't fire again until I reloaded it with a fresh magazine.

Is this being maintained?

Would be nice to have the 308, 338lm and 50bmg versions too since the AW is not only in 300wm, also the new AX and AT versions and maybe even the AS50

For some reason, the download link for the weapon eventhandler framework is dead

Hello,

Can this modpack be used on monetized servers ?

If yes, where to ask the permission ?

AWS-C's suppressor can not hide flash. It keep showing flash when shooting at night.
