IMI Negev NG7

by
Easy_Redbeard


Description:
Encouraged by a general dissatisfaction with the in-game "Kafir 7.62mm", I looked into providing a more accurate rendition of this LMG. The NG7 is entering Israeli service as a light 7.62mm machine gun for use at the fireteam or section level and has the somewhat unique feature of being able to function as a (near) marksman's weapon with a single-shot mode and a decent degree of accuracy.


Features:
  • Reconfigured for higher rate of fire (see video below)
  • More powerful round with quicker flight time.
  • Iron and Optic versions with classnames: er_ng7_iron and er_ng7_optic
  • 150rnd, 7.62mm box in red tracer (every 5 rounds and last 5 rounds) with classname: er_ng7_150rnd_762_box


  • Installation:
    Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
    32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
    64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
    After extraction it should look like this:

    Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\


    You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
    mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
    mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
    mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

    When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
    You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

    You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
    For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:

    -mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5



    Note:
    You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.


    And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

    When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.

    Notes:
    Intended to complement the RFB as part of a larger Mod I'm working on. Details to follow.
    Future updates to include a reskin and the possibility of a mounted version - although this is in very early stages.
