Have ypu watched the forgotten weapons video about the R4 R5 and R6 if not its a good video to explain the basic difference between the sa version and the real galil

2018-11-14 14:03:32 UTC  

@Dr. NUGGETS I have and am using it as a point of reference while modeling. Thank goodness for that video of his because it is making it far easier to get things right. Albeit I am only making the R4 modifications afterwards as I am currently modeling the standard Galil since the first batch of R4's were identical to it. I will then make the later R4 variant with the polymer handguard and other modifications unique to the R4 and R5.

2018-11-14 14:03:57 UTC  

Won't be making the R6 as it was not issued to the SADF and SANDF AFAIK.

2018-11-14 14:14:01 UTC  

Ok cool will you be keeping the bipods ?

2018-11-14 14:14:17 UTC  

Or adding at a later stage aswell ?

2018-11-14 14:14:23 UTC  

For the R4 yes

2018-11-14 14:14:45 UTC  

R5 doesn't have a bipod

2018-11-14 14:15:16 UTC  

Yeah but the Lm 5's did

2018-11-14 14:15:42 UTC  

LM 5's are single shot civilian versions I believe?

2018-11-14 14:17:43 UTC  

Yes they are but i was just saying that most of them had the bipods

2018-11-14 14:18:34 UTC  

Seeing as some of them were converted R4's

2018-11-14 14:19:22 UTC  

I'll look into it. Wouldn't be a problem keeping the bipods on the R5's

2018-11-14 14:19:38 UTC  

But yeah the models are looking really really good

2018-11-14 14:20:31 UTC  

Cheers man. I'm keen to see it in Squad I wonder how they will perform against the AK's and M4's

2018-11-14 14:21:50 UTC  

Well seeing as its basically an akm I'll think they'll do pretty good

2018-11-14 14:22:45 UTC  

Lower calibre though so less recoil than the AKM

2018-11-14 14:23:30 UTC  

Ahh wait brainfart i was thinking of the 5.56 ak

2018-11-14 14:24:54 UTC  

Don't know what its called tho just now the ruskys had one

2018-11-14 14:25:09 UTC  

AK74 is in 5.56

2018-11-14 14:25:19 UTC  

Yeah that one lol

2018-11-14 14:26:17 UTC  

No scopes for any of the factions though so that's going to be very interesting

2018-11-14 14:26:29 UTC  

Kind of like a bridge between Post Scriptum and Squad.

2018-11-14 14:26:57 UTC  

Shorter engagement distances etc

2018-11-14 14:27:05 UTC  

Thick bush is also going to be a factor.

2018-11-14 14:28:09 UTC  

Ooh i really can't wait

2018-11-14 14:29:54 UTC  

Are there gonna be a R4 lmg like the RPK ? With the 50 round mags ?

2018-11-14 14:30:07 UTC  


2018-11-14 14:30:56 UTC  

50 Round mags for the R4 will be available. But only one per rifleman as was standard in the SADF from what I've heard.

2018-11-14 14:31:49 UTC  

Ok cool is there going to be a specific way to select that mag ?
