  1. Bravo marksman has access to an RCO for CQB but only the 3D version that works on PIP, please add standard one also
  2. Add optics for SMAW (tested them on VR arsenal)
  3. Grenadier's LDS left screw covers UGL rails up to 200m : is this a problem IRL ? solution up to managment(not good to have to take it off every time you have to use grenades)
  4. current m4 rails are not very comfortable forcing you to take a holo with you; may i suggest the carryhandke version?(carryhandle is not shown with optics mounted)
Suggestions are to be considered modularly(don't reject the whole thread because of one); thanks to everybody for your public server effort.

2. smaw donesnt have optics at infantry level ....spec ops maybe , unless you have evidence ?

4. comfort is personal preference ,if it aint broke dont fix it lol.

i believe 3 has been sorted

1. the dmr does NOT come equipped with a rco scope in reality at infantry level ...it's a marksman weapon with a 12x adjustable scope that is all....

....but note i have made a request to totally remove the rco 3d version and swap with red dot sight on all platforms....

Actually within the USMC the ballistic sight is currently being distributed with the aim of having all SMAWs outfitted with one.

-Edit-

But that sight has thermal and lasers and shit.

1. There should be both, the 3d scope and the regular scope. I will fix this
2.Smaw optics should be in their but the mod it is from recently changed a lot of the class names for the weapons so that will be fixed
3. Sorry that is just due to the mod nothing I can do as there is as that is the only LDS that works with that L85
4. Personal preference.

number 1 !!!! ???? no way ...lol

this is evidence from wiki ( not very good but still evidence none the less ) ... states it's most common scope is the leupold which is basicially what we have currently..

lol yea and im saying it shouldn't have them,

the 3d version and the normal, it should ONLY have the long range leupold scope thats currently equipped , ...it's not ment to be used in cqb situations .....the better thing to do would be to request a standard rifle to chose also.

or maybe change it to the leupold scope which has the rds on top...maybe...

Or maybe just use the iron sights? It isn't preferable for cqb, but it is better than a scope. That is, if it would be that the leupold is the only choice.

ive spoken to a few USMC guys around the camp about their stuff they get to use, standard with them is definitely the leopold sight. dont use the ACOG on the DMR as far as im aware. british use either the 6x variant ACOG or the 12x Schmidt & Bender.

Arent there Leupold with a small red dot bolted on-top of? Seems like a solid compromise.


Don't go off-topic!

I thought it changed but Alpha marksman has and LDS instead of the trijicon. The trijicon is used even in ops so i belive it's the correct one plus it has more zoom.

BUMP
SMAW still hasn't optics.
Grenadier still has screw issue: even if the LDS is the realistically used one this issue should force us onot giving the grenadier an ACOG
Marksman still has LDS
