    By colt92 for the FK community

    ARMA3 version: 1.96.146114, RHS version: 0.5.0, 3CB Factions version: 2.0.2

     

    Similar systems have been grouped up for simplicity.

     

    1. PP-61AM (BRDM-2, BTR-60BP, BTR-70, GAZ Vodnik KPVT, MT-LB)
    2. 9Sh119 (9P148 Konkurs)
    3. 1PZ (BTR-80)
    4. 1PN22M1 (BMD-1 69’/P/PK/R)
    5. 1PN22M2 (BMP-1 66’/D/K/P, BRM-1K, Obyekt-681-2)
    6. BPK-1-42 (BTR-80A, BMD-2 85’, BMP-2 80’/86’/D/K)
    7. 1K13-2 (BMP-3 87’/91’)
    8. Bakhcha-U FCS (BMD-2M, BMD-4 04’/M, BMP-3 Vesna-K)
    9. Vanilla FCS (GAZ Vodnik Cannon 30mm/GMG/HMG, Karatel HMG/GMG, Otokar ARMA, MB-2T Stalker)

     

    1. PP-61AM (BRDM-2, BTR-60BP, BTR-70, MT-LB, GAZ Vodnik KPVT)

    1_PP-61AM_1.thumb.jpg.b5edc35c93f69f9759dd69cbe9e62a0a.jpg

    2_PP-61AM_2.thumb.jpg.530a2034d9b38dec7d75b87c431d10b7.jpg

    The scope has a mixed rangescale which is marked with hundreds of meters. The left hand scale is for the KPVT, which ranges up to 2Km, and the scale to the right is for the PKT, which ranges up to 1.5Km. Both guns fire at an angle from the right.
    The GAZ Vodnik KPVT scope is missing ranges and the scales are switched around (they've been manually added to the second image for ease of reference).
    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. 9Sh119 (9P148 Konkurs)

    3_9Sh119.thumb.jpg.3d24af69821bec0a69479ad8f60b6fc3.jpg

    This aiming reticle is used to fire 9M113 ATGMs in several vehicles. It features an optical rangefinder for 2.7m high targets, even though it does not require any range adjustments.
    In order to correctly fire the launcher:

    1. Aim at your target with the centre circle reticle.
    2. Fire.
    3. Hold the reticle over your target until impact.

     

    3. 1PZ (BTR-80)

    4_1PZ_1.thumb.jpg.a1215834c8f4c972c07e4f32976e515e.jpg

    5_1PZ_2.thumb.jpg.10452d19d525a491f7d7fb197fc9c44f.jpg

    The optics have a zoomed out and a zoomed in view that must be ranged independently, but in both you will see the same two weapon range scales. The left hand scale is for the KPVT, which ranges up to 2Km, and the scale to the right is for the PKT, which ranges up to 1.5Km. Both guns fire at an angle from the right.
    In order to correctly fire the gun:

    1. Acquire range.
    2. Press “Page Up” and “Page Down” to move the horizontal line up and down, adjusting until it aligns with the range you need from the scale that corresponds to the gun you are using.
    3. Aim centre of the reticle at your target.
    4. Fire.

    Re-adjust if you switch from zoomed out to zoomed in view, or viceversa.

     

    4. 1PN22M1 (BMD-1 69’/P/PK/R)

    6_1PN22M1_2.thumb.jpg.f0d7bf8823f252fc73a5a2d932ab5a5a.jpg

    This optic has a 100m boresight for all weapons (except the 9M14M ATGM), followed by a range scale with marks in hundreds of metres for the 2A28 and a cross reticle which the 9M14M ATGM will approximately head to after launching upwards. To the right, there is an optical rangefinder for 2.7m high targets. Be aware that accuracy is unreliable past 500m.
    In order to correctly fire the gun (BMD-1 69’/P/PK):

    1. Acquire range.
    2. Adjust aim to the approximate desired range.
    3. Fire.

    In order to properly use the 9M14M ATGMs (BMD-1 69’):

    1. Aim the cross reticle at your target. Mind that it will be launched at a slightly elevated angle.
    2. Fire. Be aware that at this point the turret will be locked in place and will not move until the ATGM impacts.
    3. Move your mouse to adjust the path of the ATGM.

    Once the ATGM is used, remember that reloading will render the turret inoperable for the duration of this process.

    • The BMD-1P features a 9P135 launcher which can be accessed through the scroll wheel menu; see 9Sh119 optics for operation instructions.
    • The BMD-1R features an 80mm MLRS 12 rocket HEAT-FRAG battery with a white cross reticle that estimates the point of impact.
      • In order to correctly fire it:
        1. Aim the white cross reticle at your target.
        2. Fire. Mind that if you fire them all at once the spread will be very high.

     

    5. 1PN22M2 (BMP-1 66’/D/K/P, BRM-1K, Obyekt-681-2)

    7_1PN22M2_2.thumb.jpg.3bfaf49481036fdfddd3322d01e301f5.jpg

    This optic has a 100m boresight for all weapons (except the 9M14M ATGM), followed by two range scales for the two ammo types (PG-15V HEAT to the left and OG-15V HE-FRAG to the right) with marks for ranges in hundreds of metres and a cross reticle which the 9M14M ATGM will approximately follow after launching upwards. To the right, there is an optical rangefinder for 2.7m high targets. Be aware that accuracy is unreliable past 500m.
    In order to correctly fire the gun:

    1. Acquire range.
    2. Adjust aim to the approximate desired range.
    3. Fire.

    In order to properly use the 9M14M ATGMs (66’/D/K):

    1. Aim the cross reticle at your target. Mind that it will be launched at a slightly elevated angle.
    2. Fire. Be aware that at this point the turret will be locked in place and will not move until the ATGM impacts.
    3. Move your mouse to adjust the impact point of the ATGM.

    Once the ATGM is used, remember that reloading will render the turret inoperable for the duration of this process.

    • The BMP-1P and the Obyekt-681-2 feature a 9P135 launcher which can be accessed through the scroll wheel menu and by zooming in, respectively; see 9Sh119 optics for operation instructions.

     

    6. BPK-1-42 (BTR-80A, BMD-2 85’, BMP-2 80’/86’/D/K)

    8_BPK-1-42.thumb.jpg.82cb7136f750077e589921356ac1c477.jpg

    This optic features three range scales for the autocannon APDS ammo, autocannon HE-T ammo and PKT, from left to right. It also has a 2.7m high optical rangefinder.
    In order to correctly fire the gun:

    1. Acquire range.
    2. Press “Page Up” and “Page Down” to move the thicker horizontal lines of the scales up and down, adjusting until it aligns with the range you need from the scale that corresponds to the ammo and gun you are using.
    3. Aim the top of the chevron “^” at your target.
    4. Fire.

    The aforementioned BMD-2 and BMP-2 variants with this optical sight feature a 9P135 launcher which can be accessed through the scroll wheel menu (BMD-2) and by zooming in (BMP-2); see 9Sh119 optics.

     

    7. 1K13-2 (BMP-3 87’/91’)

    9_1K13-2.thumb.jpg.322e1a5396ac390a8a0b00aee0de50fd.jpg

    This FCS has a laser rangefinder that adjusts automatically for your chosen weapon and ammo type where you are pointing with the top of the chevron “^”. At the top you will see the range to target and ammo type you are ranged for: П is for the PKT coax MG, Ч is for the ATGM, ЧO is for the autocannon’s HE-T, O is for the main gun HE-FRAG, and Б is for the autocannon APFSDS.
    Optionally, if you are not adjusted for any range, you have PKT ranges for 400, 600 and 800 metres.
    In order to correctly fire the gun:

    1. Aim the top of the chevron “^” 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 the ATGMs, as they will follow wherever you are aiming with the chevron "^".

     

    8. Bakhcha-U FCS (BMD-2M, BMD-4 04’/M, BMP-3/Vesna-K)

    10_Bakhcha-U_1.thumb.jpg.f789319889cbf18e2ca6108519de343a.jpg

    12_Bakhcha-U_2.thumb.jpg.543c7d5c6706694c96b5c76eaa5e0653.jpg

    This FCS has a laser rangefinder that adjusts automatically for your chosen weapon and ammo type where you are pointing with the top of the reverse T “⊥”. At the top you will see the range to target and ammo type you are ranged for: П is for the PKT, Ч is for the ATGM, ЧO is for the autocannon HE, O is for the main gun HE-T, and Б is for the autocannon APFSDS.
    In order to correctly fire the gun:

    1. Aim the top of the “⊥” 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.

    This FCS also features a Target Tracking System. You can read more about it in the corresponding section of the OPFOR Tanks FCS guide.

     

    9. Vanilla FCS (GAZ Vodnik Cannon 30mm/GMG/HMG, Karatel HMG/GMG, Otokar ARMA, MB-2T Stalker)

    13_Vanilla_1.thumb.jpg.4be386657148ea315f3b7f76d3ac4f5c.jpg

    14_Vanilla_2.thumb.jpg.c1c698a7fa97d579a12ef997280c10ee.jpg

    15_Vanilla_3.thumb.jpg.47961a76c697405b70a9f3accac79087.jpg

    These three systems have a laser rangefinder and an aiming reticle, with the CSAT vehicles including gun position indicators for added flavor. The MB-2T Stalker also provides a speed compensation indicator.
    In order to correctly fire the gun (Karatel HMG/GMG, Otokar ARMA, MB-2T Stalker):

    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 different weapons and ammo types.
    Be aware that the GAZ Vodnik Cannon 30mm/GMG/HMG give you the range to target when you press “T” (or any button bound on the “Lase target” action) but will not make any adjustments. You will have to manually adjust gun elevation.
    The MB-2T Stalker’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.
