Revolution in optical sight design?
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In fact that ArmA III will be future orientated, please view the following post about a optical sight design. I think it would be pretty good for the new weapons of ArmA3 to overthink the scopes and give the player more options to interact with the weapons scope. {F17595} {F17596} {F17597} {F17598} {F17599} {F17600} {F17601} {F17602}

Steps To Reproduce

“SpecterDR represents a revolution in optical sight design. The world’s first truly dual field of view combat optical sight that combines the best of close and precision fire ranged combat features. SpecterDR switches instantly from 4x magnified sight to a 1x CQB sight at the throw of a lever. Unlike zoom sights, the SpecterDR offers an optimized optical path and identical eye relief in both 4x and 1x modes. Depending on the situation, the user may adjust the sight to illuminate the entire crosshair or just a 1.5 MoA dot in the center. In 1x mode, the SpecterDR has by far the largest field of view in the industry. In 4x mode the SpecterDR offers a generous field of view, long eye relief, and ELCAN’s legendary crystal clear image. Situational awareness in both magnifications is improved with ultra-wide viewing angles and unmatched viewing in low light conditions. SpecterDR is half the weight and twice the capability of carrying two scopes, without compromise to mission effectiveness or reliability.

The SpecterDR offers the best single solution for both CQB and Long Range engagements and is designed to withstand the rigors of modern professional use.”

System dosn't allow *.gif :-(

I second this. Adjustable illumination is already available today. Especially in low light/nvg situations being able to adjust illumination on scopes and red dot sights would be handy.

Would be cool.
Already works with some of the ARMA 2 ACE scopes.

I like that it can zoom in and out as well.

Looks like a gadget to me, no need to have every "Revolution" ingame.

It is the RCO on the Mk17s in Arma2 OA, with ACE it has all 3 sight settings. 1x 4x & BUIS on the top. You can also get these with a mini red dot on top like on the ACOGs.

RCO in Alpha already has an additional holosight, but in Public Beta there will be a 3D scope that works just like this (switchable 1x or 4x zoom).
Hope you'll like it!

Mass close.
