M72 Light Anti-tank Weapon to M240B Machine Gun


Unfortunately you can't see the bipod very well in the pic.; it sticks out extremely well in-game. And yes, I called it a "tripod" in the image. Shut up.

quote:M240 Machine Gun: ground-mounted, gas-operated, crew-served machine gun. This reliable 7.62mm machine gun delivers more energy to the target than the smaller caliber M-249 SAW. It is being issued to infantry, armor, combat engineer, special force/rangers, and selected field artillery units that require medium support fires and will replace the ground-mounted M-60 series machine guns currently in use.

A bit of the interface-gfx sticks out at the bottom of the weapon chart but I can't squish it any more without losing a lot of detail :-/ Also I don't have any charge .WAV as it has a long startuptime (it's supposed to hold a point, not storm), either.

[URL] (If you don't want it to permanently replace your LAW make sure you move the folder M240B into Soldat\Mods\ and add " -mod M240B" to a shortcut's Target attribute; .INI mod-users, the mod uses the original weapon set .INI files so just copy your mod's .INI attributes and replace everything but the LAW's)

BTW, this has nothing to do with the slow pace of the Null Soldat Mod as this was finished weeks ago; I just kept forgetting to release it :-P

"Other?" Huh? "World war II?" The M240B is in use today. And I would've changed missile.BMP if different bullet-types with the LAW were not invisible (and thus making it useless)...

"Stick out more," you mean? It does. You just have to play it in-game; the images are unreliable. I already posted that in the threadstarter.

Thanks, thrall'; at least now I know who actually tried checking it out <_<

i believe the m240 is actually called the FN MAG, and designated the m240 by the military. the manufacturers designation is FN MAG, made by the FN belgian weapon manufacturers (incidentally the same people who made the M249)

xtishereb, you found out the weapon-gfx secret? Go ahead; try flipping the original image vertically and adding -1 to the flipped version; it'll screw up :-P
