The SG553 is an assault rifle manufactured by Swiss Arms AG (formerly SIG Arms AG) in Switzerland.
The SG553 is an improved version of the SG552 and was released in 2009. Even though it mostly resembles the SG552, the SG553 has one key advantage, the recoil spring is now wrapped around the piston rod like in the SG 550/551 models, which address several reliability issues encountered in the SG552 and also allows the usage of the standard SG550/551 charging handle.
A long barrel version of the SG553 known as the SG 553 LB incorporates a 347 mm (13.7 in) barrel with provision to fire rifle grenades and support a bayonet.
The mod actually includes 3 variants of the SG553 SOW:
SG553-SB : The short barrel version.
SG553-LB : Long barrel version
SG553-LB + 40mm GL : Long barrel version with 40mm grenade launcher.
Also included, a Brügger & Thomet Rotex III QD Silencer and a P226 9mm handgun !
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:
You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
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:
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.
You can find these weapons in the editor under: Empty > Ammo > DarkGiver's Supply Crate
The mod will include in future a wider range of SIG/SAN rifle, including classical SG550, SG551 and the new 7.62 SG751 SAPR.
