Hesse Arms
« on: 05 Feb 2003, 16:20:34 »
Erhem....Consider the Hesse Arms .50 cal. Excellent weapon.

It's a sniper rifle with a great silencer, built by one of the best gun companies in the world.  8)

Also the USMC's new AAAV, Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle. If anyone could get the specs on that...it's the newest top-of-the-line APC for the Marines.

This has probably been mentioned before, but has anyone done the new Russian T-90?

BTW, has anyone made the latest USMC Cobra or Huey?

Do you mean the HAR-15A2 .50 Action Express? Just need to make some config changes to a decent M-4 model... Perhaps STGN, here on these boards, could help you?

I believe BAS will be releasing an AH-1Z... someday. They're just quite busy at the moment...

TOW released an aav (?)  Its not the most current version, its the old one that was too slow......

And, there is an armour pack that has the T-90 in it, a good job
You can find it at

.50 AE, and .50 BMG are two different animals. Yes, both can be supressed. But for the gun and round to be truely supressed, a sub-sonic round must be used. For the HAR-15A1, this isn't a bad thing per se, as the weapon with sub-sonic ammo would be fantastic for sentry removal. Slap in a mag with high-velocty ammo, and you've got a decent counter-sniper weapon as well. Obviously the weapon would have to be significantly modified, and accurized for this to work reliably.
But for the .50 BMG, in this context the weapon would be used in the anti-material and heavy-sniping role. High velocity is key here, to pentrate lightly-armoured vehicles, and deliver maximum energy to defeat targets.
Still, I've seen quite a few .50 BMG weapons equipped with large supressors/flash hiders/muzzel brakes. The weapon's firing location is still relatively well-masked when these are used, but the supersonic "crack" of the round would at least alert any survivors of the first shot, that subsequent rounds might be on their way...

See the Winter 2003 issue of Special Weapons For Military & Police. It covers a recent .50BMG, the UAA M5100 w/Sound Tech M50 suppressor ["as quiet as a 10/22", claims the cover]. The author reports that the weapon+supressor is not only very quiet, but also has a more efficient muzzle braking effect than any others he's ever tested, so that recoil was miraculously low [but still punishing to the soldier's shoulder].

The most interesting part, to me, was his description of the effect to witnesses downrange: since they don't hear the report of the weapon, but do hear the supersonic crack of the round, they are actually deceived as to the direction the shot came from. Think about it: you only hear a supersonic object's "boom" after it passes you. The author claims that downrange witnesses tend mostly to believe the round is coming from the opposite direction!

So, in a modern context, such a weapon mod seems quite reasonable, but not for missions taking place in the 20th century....
