M60E4, the second-to-last iteration the venerable, yet fundamentally flawed weapons system introduced in the 1950s to replace and supplement the M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle.
As set up within ,the M60 comes with one M1913 Rail on the Assembly cover, which makes it compatible with the use of any ASDG_JointRails-compatible optics mounts (even the DMS, though it looks dopey as fuck).
To install the NIArms M60 GPMG Pack you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page
for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

M60E4 RTM Sequences
So I've included everything that is in the pbo here, un-binarised for your perusal. There's only 1 item that I can't provide the unbinarised source for, and that's the standing reload. Sadly, at some point I committed a colossal error and had to revert it, and unfortunately that meant using a previously binarised version. I promise that proceeding releases will have unbinarised RTM source files for all sequences. If you're not keen on downloading more stuff, Here's the short on how to use the new animation with your weapon -
class YourWeapon : RifleBase
reloadaction = "HLC_GestureReloadM60"; // this is literally it. The Gesture is defined in HLC_Core, which is why it's a prereq. If you want all the moving bits an bobs on your gun, refer to the Source files.
