Dagger Ballistics - ACE


Here´s a new mod. It adds many new ammo types and magazines to the game featuring real life ballistics data.
Inside you will find a very detailed manual explaining all the new ammo types, their ballistic charts, dispersion and effective range, how they behave in different rifles, how they should be employed, how to make some ballistics calculations as well as calculating bullet penetration and hit values. And much more.

My intention was to bring a wider variety of ammo with special ammos to special soldiers. Among the bullets you will find SLAP, tear gas, explosive, frangible, duplex, hollow point, and more.

There is also a LEA config to speed up all your tests with the new stuff included in the mod.

I like to play the game as a long range shooter, which means I stay 75% of the time looking though scopes and wondering whether the ammo variety could be widened to better fit any sniper and special application needs.
So, I decided to make this mod adding more variety of ammunition and approaching them to real life behavior. ACE mod has already done a great job bringing drop values to realistic terms but in this mod they were pushed even further.

I have made the 25x59 mm, .50 BMG, .338 Lapua, .308 Win, .223, 9x39 mm, 7.62x54 mm, .300 Win Mag, .408 Cheytac and 12.7x107 mm calibers for the BI vanilla and expansions, ACE, Robert Hammer, L115A3 and P:UKF, BBOA Mercs, SAL SOTG, Vilas Western Weapon Pack, WinteR5 M14´s , C1987 G3, AAW, SAM, LenL119, ACR weapons pack, British 3 Rifle Infantry MTP, Cheytac M200 packs and Dagger Weapons.
If you want any new ammo you just PM me at Armaholic bringing its BC´s and we could work that ou together.

As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.

Dagger Ballistics is the "mod of a mod". Besides it works with default BI´s weapons it brings a lot of other magazines and ammo types made specially for all the mods listed below. So give them a try because they were considered worth to receive the goodies brought by this mod.
You don´t need to have all the mods that are compatible with my mod. So don´t get yourself bored by those “Addon X requires addon Y” messages on game start. If you don´t like those messages then delete the pbo´s made for the mods you are not using.

Known issues:
1.Dagger Ballistics does not work with Robalo´s ASR configs. Please, notice that Dagger Ballistics also makes weapons ACE compatible.
2.It also conflicts with Group Link 4 Special FX Edition and with ScopeFX - Dynamic scopes, so you will have to turn them off when playing with Dagger Ballistics.
3.The M1 Abrams shoots blanks from the MG´s.
