Add mounted weapon version of the AR-2 Darter
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

It would be nice if you could have an AR-2 Darter with some type of mounted machine gun like on call of duty black ops 2, but still keep the laser marker version as well. The reason for this is to make the game more "futuristic-like" as it is in 2035. {F23025}

You do realize that a machine gun weighs A LOT, + at least the same weight in ammunition? In reality, the Darter wouldn't even be able to take off.

@Vitdom: obviously, there are no weapons except machineguns, and Darter exists in reality.

Upvoted. Quads of such size can carry cargo in order of kilograms, and .22LR gun + 20-30 rounds would weight far less than 1kg. That's not a machinegun, but will also have its use (example: Ghost Recon Alpha short movie http://youtu.be/7-wAzlqzXH0?t=7m28s)

I upvoted as it seems like a decent idea but it also sounds a bit stretched and taking the point away from the Darter a bit.

What kinda weapon do you want to mount on that thing. A .22 gun? At the distance where a 22 becomes effective you can shoot the UAV down without aiming. What'd make more sense is a Laser, but I guess that's too futuretech for the arma community. (Not as in marker, but dazzler/zapper)

Dat reference : Call-of-duty-black-ops-2-drones.jpg
We are not on call of duty black ops 2. We are in ARMA
Arma mean simulation, not game like COD ...

The laser is more powerful than the gun. It's more powerful because you can drop a Hellfire, GBU, or guided shell (artillery, mortar, tank) right on their heads. Anyway, at the range you would need to take someone out with a .22, the enemy would easily shoot it down, thus losing hundreds of dollars of UAS equipment and alerting the enemy. This could be done much cheaper and without the VZZZZZZZ of a quad rotor by using one man, one bullet, and a suppressor.

or just mount a small 7.62 M240.

But downvoted anyways

Just a suggestion to see how people would react. I had high doubts that Bohemia were actually going to put these in anyway.
