Related to 0002905 (same bug but in reverse):

I agree this should be changed. It is a control change still not done.

@Astaroth it's not a bug. Ticket can be closed.
Since always in ArmA, using right mouse button to zoom in optics was working as max zoom only and only if you keep pressing the RMB.
To keep optics zoom and to be able to keep it at a certain level (not max), - and + of num pad have to be used.
Same applies to all Armas, not only A3.
