The G3's got a long history, the original design concepts originating in the Mauser factories at the end of WW2. The designers moved to spain to work on the design, ultimately producing the CETME Modelo 5, and ultimately moving back to work with H&K once the bar on arms manufacturing in Gemany lifted.
Contained within, you'll find 8 variants to the pattern, ranging from the absurdly short MC51 to the refined hair-splitting precision of the PSG1, as well as two platform-specific optical sights, and a suppressor dedicated to the platform. Additionally, magazines and supply crate provided for quick access.
To install the NIArms G3 Rifles 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.
For usage and information instructionss of how to use HLC G3 please refer to the included documentation.
