RPT_M3MAAWS “Carl Gustav” for OFP-Resistance 1.91 or later.

This weapon is a modernized version of the BIS “Carl Gustav”. It is based on the SAAB “Carl Gustav” 84 mm recoilless rifle. The U.S. military designation for this weapon is M3 Multi-role Anti-armor Anti-tank Weapon System (MAAWS).

It includes three four ammo types, anti-tank unguided, anti-personnel unguided, anti-tank / anti-air millimeter wave (MMW) guided sabot missile and EMP unguided rocket. The first two ammo types are realistic representations of the FFV 551 and FFV 451 used in the real life M3 MAAWS “Carl Gustav”. The last two ammo types are a futuristic sabot round that would be possible only with the miniaturization of the guidance systems used in the Hellfire MMW anti-tank missile or similar rounds used in the Javelin AT System and a "light weight" EMP round that could be carried by a man.

Some features of the RPT_M3MAAWS:
  • A calibrated variable zoom scope for accurate unguided shots out to 800 m.
  • The guided round can be fired at both vehicles and aircraft out to 2000 m.
  • Ammo types include unguided HE (anti-vehicle and anti-personnel), unguided AT (anti-armor/vehicle), unguided EMP (vehicle/electronics disabler) and MMW guided missiles (anti-armor/air).
  • The MMW guided missiles can execute "Top-Down” attack against targets (with proper mission setup).
  • AI units can use these weapons to their full potential (with the help of incorporated scripts).
  • Scripts are included to help mission makers use this addon.
  • Detailed usage instructions in addon folder.

The attached zip file contains the RPT_M3MAAWS.pbo file, detailed usage instructions <RPT_M3MAAWS (Carl Gustav).pdf>, a demo mission <RPT_M3MAAWS demo.Intro> and the "unPBOed" folder (so it is easier for you modeling and config gurus to examine it and suggest improvements).

I just uploaded the release version 1.00 with a fix to the "top-down-strike" (TDS) feature. Sometimes when firing at distant targets on terrain above the shooter; missiles would behave erratically during the final TDS portion of the missile's flight path.
