So I noticed alot of the ArmA rifles have this attachment on the side. I served in the Army years ago and I dont reconise this device...

Its the rectangle box shaped device on the side of the barrel.

I'd say it's an AN/PEQ laser device.

A question rather to be put into the military discussions thread, by the way.

Ah, wasn't sure if it belonged there, that thread seemed like it was more about the politics of war... my bad.

On a side note... if they are attached in ArmA, why don't they work? wacko.gif

Probably because the engine does not support it. I remember having seen similiar things made by addon makers for OFP but neither of them did really work.

Through config tweaking the laser effect can be simulated as done by the LAM module of Martin_BM's Mk23s (ArmedAssault.info news post with them) however it produces an always on effect but a nice one none the less (that pistol pack is still my favourite for armedassault smile.gif )

Don't know how the "laser" in that pack works, but the purpose of the real-life AN/PEQ series is that it can only be seen with night vision goggles on, which I doubt is doable in ArmA in any feasible manner (without performance hit, side-effects, Ai reaction etc).

the Mk.23 pack simply uses a red dot for the crosshair to simulate the laser from the LAM pointless if playing with no crosshairs.

ACE has managed to make IR flares so one would assume something similar should be possible, almost certainly wrong though smile.gif
