Then it's just a older picture. Those guys are in the Army.

Anyway, marines should have aimpoint. They are using it just as Army is.

The Marines can and do use optical sights. And photos out of context won't really prove anything. You'll also be hard pressed to find a document describing the typical customizations done to each Marine's weapon. So really, the argument should be about whether or not PR is going to implement them and not so much about whether or not every Marine has one.

yeah thats basically what i was going for, i was thinking since this mod is based on realism, is it realistic to have ironsight m16s or is that rare now in the modern day marine corps? and should they be replaced by m68s in pr? only if its realistic.

known in-game as BOOMSNAPP

Since they do carry them, even if it was only 20% of Marines, it wouldn't be unrealistic to have them in game.

PR is realistic, and since the standard issue is irons, i say go for the irons!

Seems to be a waste to have an M-16A4 with nothing on it. Kindof the whole point.

I personally prefer aimpoint to scope&irons and adding that to rifleman would be great and not unrealistic. Or maybe more customized kit-selection with scopes, aimpoint & irons.

The Marines already have a full rifle as opposed to the Army's carbine, as I understood it the addition of the Aimpoint to the supporting classes was to balance out the comparitive lack of power and accuracy compared with the other factions rifles.

The key to modernising any weapon is covering them in glue and tossing them in a barrel of M1913 rails until they look "Modern" enough.

Many thanks to [R-DEV]Adriaan for the sig!

In PR, the deviation and damage of the M4 is exactly the same as the M16A4.
