Description

Hey there, this suggestion is for a visible SOFLAM Beam when sending out a laser beam through NVG/FLIR.

Based on the nature of the AN/PEQ-1 SOFLAM's beam, the nature of the NVG's optical range as well as various FLIR models, it only seems appropriate to make this high power beam visible under the NVG and FLIR optics.

For visual proof this please see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZJK0pCApoc

It would be almost exactly like the ones already in OA on the Mk16/17s but with a bigger beam (larger diameter) and longer distance, could be roughly about 800m (to keep it within ArmA 2 CO/OA map sizing.
