40mm Ammunition

40mm Ammunition

Vanilla ArmA 3

40mm rounds are multi-purpose munitions fired from an underslung M203 grenade launcher. 

High Explosive
High Explosive 40mm rounds cause a medium sized explosion on impact. Good for groups of enemies at range. Also good for clearing compounds/buildings very quickly. Effective range is 300, maximum range is 450.

40mm Flare
40mm flares are launch-able illumination rounds attached to a parachute to slow decent. They are capable of lighting up large areas, and are useful for when NVG’s are not available. 40mm flare comes in several variants: white, red, yellow, green, IR. Duration is 50 seconds. Flare release depends on how far the M203 was ranged in.

40mm Smoke
The 40mm Smoke round is used for marking enemy locations for CAS and for concealing friendly troops as they maneuver. Rounds have a tendency to bounce. The effectiveness of the grenade for concealment decreases with the amount of wind present. 40mm smoke comes in several variants: White, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, Purple and IR. Colour uses are as follows:

Concealment:                   White
CAS Marking:                  Red

 

GP-25 Under-slung Grenade Launcher

The GP-25 grenade launcher is an under-slung 40mm grenade launcher designed for the AK-74 series rifle. It has an effective range of 400m and facilitates the firing of a variety of different munitions.

VOG -25
|Type – High Explosive|

The VOG – 25 is the standard offensive 40mm munition for the GP – 25. Explodes on impact and creates a cloud of shrapnel that’s deadly out to 6m.

VOG – 25P
|Type – High Explosive|

The VOG -25P is identical to it’s standard cousin, however has the unique property of bouncing upon impact and air-bursting at a height between 0.5m and 1.5m. This has a devastating effect of producing a could of shrapnel that can circumnavigate low cover and reach a wider area.

VG – 40TB
|Type – Thermobaric|

The VG – 40 TB is an impact detonated thermometric explosive which creates a large, high temperature cloud to destroy targets. Thermobaric rounds are especially useful for confined spaces such as buildings, bunkers and alleyways.

VG – 40SZ
|Type – Stun|

The VG – 40SZ is a 40mm underslung fired stun round which exhibits the same effects as a standard flash bang. The round will detonate after a fuse time of 2.5 seconds.

VG – 400P
|Type – Flare|

GP – 25 launched flare round. Comes in green, red and white variants.

GRD – 40 / VG – 40 MD
|Type – Smoke|

GP – 25 launched smoke round. Comes in green, red and white variants.

GMD – 40
|Type – Fast Action Smoke|

A short range, fast action smoke round that detonates within 50m of the user. Good for immediate smoke screens, however the smoke cloud only lasts for a few seconds. Comes in white only.

Grenades

THROWABLE AND 40MM AMMUNITION TYPES

 

LETHAL

M67 Fragmentation Grenade
The M67 frag grenade is a throwable explosive that projects metal shrapnel at high velocity from the point of detonation. It is most useful in CQC envionments where the combination of limited mobility and short fuse time combine to cause devestating results. The M67 can also be used to indirectly engage targets that are behind cover or not visible, or to engage close groups of enemy combatants. Fuse time is 4 seconds.

RGO Fragmentation Grenade
Much like the M67, the RGO detonates and projects a cloud of fast moving shrapnel to kill its target. However, an inbuilt fuse will trigger the RGOs impact functionality after 1 second, causing it to detonate whenever it hits the ground or an object. After 4 seconds of airtime, the grenade will manually detonate.


NON-LETHAL

M84 Stun Grenade
The M84 stun grenade is a throwable flash-bang, designed to blind and deafen enemy targets within a small area. The M84 is best used in confined spaces and when outright killing all occupants of a location is not possible (rescue/capture missions). Fuse time is 2 seconds, duration depends on proximity and line-of sight.


MARKING AND CONCEALMENT

M18 Smoke Grenade
The M18 smoke grenade is used for marking enemy locations for CAS, marking landing zones for transport aircraft and for concealing friendly troops as they maneouver. Fuse time is 2 seconds, duration is 50 seconds, Radius: 2m, Height: 2m (no wind). The effectiveness of the grenade for concleament decreases with the amount of wind present. M18 comes in several variants: White, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, Purple. Colour uses are as follows:

Concealment:                   White.
Cold LZ:                              Blue, Green.
Hot LZ:                               Yellow, Orange.
Medivac LZ:                     Purple.
CAS Targeting:              Red.

IR Strobe/Grenade
The IR (infra-red) strobe is a tool used to mark friendly locations and to designate LZ’s for transport aircraft. It can only be seen via equipment capable of night vision or FLIR. The IR strobe can be attached to oneself using the ACE 3 self interaction menu.

Note: The IR strobe (misc items) is capable of being attached and detached multiple times. the IR Grenade (grenade items) can only be attached and detached once.

.45
Good overall damage at short range but lower penetration than the 9mm round. Good for short range engagements.

SMA Ammunition

5.56mm Ammunition

Comes in 30 round magazines.

5.56 ammunition is the standard round used by most infantry during combat. It’s light, versatile in different environments and generally has more rounds per magazine than heavier ammo, making them an excellent round for engagement in close and medium range combat. The standard effective range for a 5.56 round is below 400m, with a maximum range of 600m. Engagement is possible outside these ranges, however the effectiveness of the round becomes minimal due to a major loss in velocity. It is advised that engagement with this round is restricted to below 400 metres unless ordered by your Fire Team Leader or Squad Leader.

M855A1 EPR
High penetration but low damage. Good for shooting through walls/fences/etc.

Mk318 Mod 0 SOST
Medium penetration and medium damage. Good all-round ammo.

Mk262 Mod 1 SPR
Low penetration but high damage. Best for open environments where penetration through walls/fences is unlikely to be needed.


7.62mm Ammunition

Comes in 20 round magazines and 150 round boxes (Mk319 Mod 0 Ball Barrier only).

7.62 ammunition is more specialized than its 5.56 counterpart, as it is mainly implemented in marksman and heavy gun scenarios. This is mainly due to the rounds generally higher damage and accuracy over range. 7.62 rifles are usually paired with high-magnification scopes (4x and above). The standard effective range for a 7.62 round is below 600m, with a maximum engagement range of 800m.

M80A1 EPR
Best penetration out of the 7.62mm rounds, but lower average damage than other variants.

Mk319 Mod 0 Ball Barrier
Medium penetration and high damage, but limited effectiveness at long range. Good for close quarters combat.

Lapua Full Metal Jacket SUBSONIC
Much lower damage and speed than the other 7.62 ammo types, but much quieter and less likely to alert enemies to your position. Very precise but lots of bullet drop due to its’ low speed.

AAC .300 Blackout

Comes in 30 round magazines.

Full Metal Jacket

Boat Tail Hollow Point

Sub-Sonic


SCP 6.8 Remington
