Description

After doing a lot of testing with the AN/PSS-14, I've noticed that you really don't have a lot of options for clearing AP mines, if you get close enough to place C4, it will only take out the mine closest to it, and chances are you will die trying. A satchel will set off all AP mines in the area, but once again, it's too dangerous to get close. My original suggestion was for some kind of throw-able C4 setup designed to clear mines, but while looking for pictures, I found the Mk 7 APOBS.

The device is basically a miniature MICLIC, that is man portable, it weighs 125 pounds, and has a stand off distance of 35 meters, it can clear a path of 0.6 to 1m x 45m.

And if that's not possible, I'll settle for C4 + detcord in this formation: http://www.hintsandthings.co.uk/images/gardenzinediagram2.gif, with the ability to be thrown.

Someone needs to model this backpack thing for me and preferably texture it.

Then we can add it, because it's 90% done but doing this model is annoying. Thanks.

umm, the pack weighs in at 125lbs? thats 56kg... so with the current stamina systems you would walk roughly 50m before you passout...

Could be two parts to it.

Sorry, yes, after looking into it is seems one person carries the rear charges and another carries the front and rocket, i guess it could just act as a mortar in arma's eyes with a CSW menu, in fact while i was searching i found this video of marines using a MICLIC and a APOBS, near the start you can see a few times two people carrying the packs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GpaFYOFo1M

Here you can see a marine arming the systems and it detonating soon after http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=4GpaFYOFo1M#t=1042s

and a MICLIC deploying and dettonating from the soliders point of view http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=4GpaFYOFo1M#t=947s

and another type of line clearing charge shown later http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=4GpaFYOFo1M#t=1098s

and sometimes withouht the rocket... http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=4GpaFYOFo1M#t=1137s

No model donations?
Guess I have to keep it private then for my own gaming group.

Perhaps until next week.

Searched within Six config browser but was not able to find it inside the weapons or magazine (dunno where to search exactly)

Ammo box ingame didnĀ“t helped as well, magic box as usual is not showing the whole content.

May i ask for the class name for testing?
