Spearpoint: L2 Sterling SMG Pack
The L2, ubiquitously known as the "Sterling" after its place of manufacture, is a British submachine gun in service with the British Army from 1953 to 1994. Originally developed by George William Patchett during World War II as a replacement for the Sten gun, the Sterling submachine gun enjoyed post-war success both domestically and internationally. It continues to be used by some police and military forces around the world.
This pack contains a few major variants of the Sterling SMG:
Mk4. L2A3 : the British Army adopted the Mk.IV as the L2A3 in 1955, and it would remain the standard British submachine gun until it was taken out of service in 1994. Production ran from 1955 to 1988.
Mk5. L34A1: The Mk.V was designed in 1964 on behalf of the British Army, who requested a suppressed version of the L2A3 for use on special operations. It was adopted as the L34A1 in 1967. The L34A1 remained in service until the 1990s and saw sales in other countries.
Mk.6 Carbine: also known as the "Police" or "Sporter" model, was a semi-automatic, closed bolt version of the Mk.IV offered for commercial sale in the US. It was marketed primarily for law enforcement purposes but failed to attract many buyers.
Mk.7 Para Pistol: an ultra-short variant of the Mk.IV. The barrel was reduced to a mere 4 inches and the return spring was shortened significantly. It also came with a detachable foregrip and polymer stock. It was marketed to both military and civilian customers.

Credits & Thanks:
A couple years ago I began the process of learning to mod Arma 3 and put together Spearpoint. This would not have been possible without the mentoring and support of Mondkalb and the rest of the Arma Cold Warriors Discord channel. They are too numerous to name here, but the happy responses, healthy critique and empathy in frustration are what stopped me from giving up on this months ago.
The Arma 3 community as a whole has contributed to a huge knowledge base that I leaned heavily upon to get this mod in to the world. The Volunteer Commando Battalion is a group that kept me interested in playing Arma for years past its original run (back to the earliest days of OFP), and I would wholeheartedly recommend checking them out if you want to play with this mod in tactical realism scenarios.
