  1. Incendiary ammo in weapons already rides the line. But an incendiary 12 gauge round that would be superior to buck shot. Would probably violate the Geneva Convention and Laws of War. Since it would require something more powerful than White Phosphorus, which is considered a Chemical Weapons agent if used on combatants or noncombatants. No country is gonna pay for development and manufacture of ammunition that they probably can't or won't use. So that is why current incendiary ammo is pretty weak.

  2. There have been vintage small arms used in the middle east in recent years. In particular in Syria, where there were even German tanks in use!

  3. I actually really liked the depeiction of the Kar98k in this campaign. Rebel/insurgent forces in the middle east have weapons systems that run the gambit from advanced modern hardware to a limitless pool of AK’s to ancient obsolete world war era and older weapons. The airbase assault mission depicted that dichotomy perfectly, the majority of Farah’s forces are wielding Kalashnikovs and similar vintage rifles while both a Kar98k and remote controlled suicide explosive drones are being used at the same time.

  4. The "M4A1" in this game is a MK18, an m4 variant with a shorter barrel for more close quarters engagements and clearing buildings, used by special forces. Not exactly an M4. Same operating system, but it is not an M4 or A1

  5. Could you have jonathan react to roblox phantom forces and/or arsenal? If you need gameplay footage, i would happily provide it. i think it would be really cool and he'd enjoy it

  6. I actually like the on screen reticle for the grenade launchers. The way I see it is that, in a lot of cases soldiers that are well trained with grenade launchers rarely need to actually look through the sight aperture. They can eyeball the distance and angle and it really is amazing how accurate you can be by just eyeballing. The on screen reticle is like a representation of that for the player. Once you get used to it and hop of realistic you too can just eyeball the distance and angle

  7. 8:34 I think what Hadir meant by "I put it together myself" was "I put this package together myself." While it's not unbelievable for his group to have access to Khyber Pass-style talent, I imagine he likely managed to get this very nice .338 rifle from a cache or something, adding new accessories and parts to it over time until he had a build he wanted. Us Americans do this kind of stuff with pre-made parts all the time, it's why the AR-15 and Remington 700 for example are so incredibly popular.
