    By colt92 for the FK community.

    ARMA3 version: 1.96.146114, RHS version: 0.5.0, 3CB BAF Vehicles version: 10.0

     

    While most don’t really require an entry, they have still been added for documentation purposes. Similar systems have been grouped up for simplicity.

    1. M36E2 (M1117 ASV)

    2. CROWS (M1220 CROWS, M1126 CROWS, M1238A1 ASV CROWS, M1239 CROWS, FV432/3 Bulldog HMG-RWS, Panther CLV GPMG, RG31 Mk. 5E Nyala, M-ATV, Wiesel 2, Nemmera, Fennek)

    3. Integrated Sight Unit (M2A2ODS, M6A2 Linebacker)

    4. Fire Control Software (M2A3)

    5. Vanilla FCS (Pandur II, FV510 Warrior, Badger IFV)

     

    1. M36E2 (M1117 ASV)

    1.thumb.jpg.b8a1f3f6f2070cd705b9e9af80f8c4f3.jpg

    The scope has a mixed rangescale which is marked with hundreds of meters. The left hand scale is for the M2, which ranges up to 2Km, and the scale to the right is for the GMG, which ranges up to 800m. Bear in mind that the M2 fires at an angle from the right, and the GMG fires at an angle from the left.

    In order to correctly fire the gun:

    1. Acquire range.
    2. Adjust range by aiming with the space where the line of said range or the closest one to it meets with the central vertical line.
    3. Fire.

     

    2. CROWS (M1220 CROWS, M1126 CROWS, M1238A1 ASV CROWS, M1239 CROWS, FV432/3 Bulldog HMG-RWS, Panther CLV GPMG, M-ATV, RG31 Mk. 5E Nyala, Wiesel 2, Nemmera, Fennek)

    3.thumb.jpg.d50e7d5fba81bf47fae639e4d0fbc560.jpg

    10.thumb.jpg.54028070728dc22c0e30a53aeed8a8c4.jpg

    These three systems have a laser rangefinder and an aiming reticle, with two of them also including, elevation, magnification and gun position indicators for added flavor.

    In order to correctly fire the gun:

    1. Aim the cross reticle at your target.
    2. Press “T” to range (or any button bound on the “Lase target” action).
    3. Wait for FCS to calculate corrections.
    4. Fire.

    You do not need to readjust for TOWs. They will follow the centre point of the reticle/circle.

     

    3. Integrated Sight Unit (M2A2ODS and M6A2 Linebacker)

    4-1.thumb.jpg.52a3ab6c735c495a138c37dbe91cd2e1.jpg

    4-2.thumb.jpg.86f1efb563252a9f141e98797e2c9503.jpg

    The zoomed out view has just a cross sight, but the zoomed in view has an optical rangefinder for 2.7m high targets.

    In order to correctly fire the gun:

    1. Aim the cross reticle/circle at your target.
    2. Press “T” to range (or any button bound on the “Lase target” action).
    3. Wait for FCS to calculate corrections.
    4. Fire.

    Re-adjust every time you switch ammo types.

    You do not need to readjust for TOWs. They will follow the centre point of the reticle/circle.

     

    4. Fire Control Software (M2A3)

    5.thumb.jpg.550d413e72017cfb0821ae155c926950.jpg

    This one is quite simple. You have your aiming reticle, your laser rangefinder indicator and your turret and commander camera orientation indicators.

    In order to correctly fire the gun:

    1. Aim the cross reticle at your target.
    2. Press “T” to range (or any button bound on the “Lase target” action).
    3. Wait for FCS to calculate corrections.
    4. Fire.

    Re-adjust every time you switch ammo types.

    You do not need to readjust for TOWs. They will follow the centre of the reticle.

     

    5. INDFOR Vanilla FCS (Pandur II, FV510 Warrior, Badger IFV)

    7.thumb.jpg.06ee10e35f799ef9a38b417c3692690a.jpg

    8.thumb.jpg.e6ac7e44a7fafe45167e235c346b585e.jpg

    In this system you are provided with a gun elevation indicator, a navigational compass with the turret’s and commander camera positions relative to the chassis, a speed compensation indicator and a laser rangefinder.

    In order to correctly fire the gun:

    1. Aim the cross reticle at your target.
    2. Press “T” to range (or any button bound on the “Lase target” action).
    3. Wait for FCS to calculate corrections.
    4. Fire.

    Re-adjust every time you switch ammo types. The system will automatically compensate for your target’s speed, but you will need to re-range or manually compensate if that speed changes.

    *The Pandur II’s Spike ATGMs have two different firing modes, direct and top down attack. You must select the mode you wish to use by cycling through the weapons and fire modes with “F” (or any button bound on the “Next weapon” action). Additionally, these ATGMs feature a lock-on, fire and forget system, although you will need your target to give off a thermal signature for it to work.

    1. Select one of the two ATGM fire modes.
    2. Press “T” (or any button bound on the “Lase target” action) to start locking on your target (an open diamond will appear over it).
    3. Once the lock-on is complete, you will see a closed diamond.
    4. Fire.

    You may also dumb fire the ATGMs on both firing modes with them working as intended.
