NIArms Minimi LMGs

by
toadie2k


Description:
The FN Minimi came about as a project to take the heavy and not readily portable FN MAG GPMG and create a more modern, man-portable Light Machine Gun. Initial prototypes for Minimi were built for 7.62x51mm, with the switch to 5.56x45mm NATO coming relatively late in it's development. The resulting LMG was probably a little heavier than it could have been, but certainly still fit the bill, so was adopted en masse. The pack covers the majority of the the Minimi/M249's service life, primarily bracketting from the ealy 1990s to the current day.

The pack supports the use of,either directly or through optional addons
- Community Upgrade Project: Magazines (Additional PBO)
- RHS Escalation: Magazines (Additional PBO)
- ACE3: Ballistics (Directly)
- AGM: Ballistics, Overheating,Barrel Changes, Bipods (Directly)
- Rutherberg's Advanced Ballistics: Ballistics (Directly)

Source:
This is every single file that went into the creation of the M249/Minimi mod set. EVERY single file, and you can do what the hell you want with it- roll it into your own mod, butcher it with MSpaint camo reskins, put into Counter-Strike, whatever.
I guess the only thing I would ask you not do is use this to wreck the released mod version of the SAWs with some sort of hackup, because that's a dick move. Generally, just don't be a dick with it, and you're good.
This release, both the sources here, and the mod itself are really only made possibly in almost totality thanks to the generosity of my patreon backers, all 15 of you, and Squantoon, who officially commissioned this. Thankyou, all of you.


Notes:
NOTE - AGM and CSE both no longer are updating and their inclusion in support is for legacy support to groups not yet switching over to ACE.
NOTE2- Across all ballistics functionality added; Minimis use 1:7in(178mm) Twist barrels, M249 1:12(305) Twist.
