    There are a lot of new small arms rifle models. The problem is when you read the release notes, you may only see when one of them was added at a certain point, or, unfortunately, we lose track of them in the notes.


    New infantry rifles:


    M16A3 (30 rnd mag)









    ...so yes, more rifles than just the AK-5C. ;)


    thanks for the response, any new infantry lmgs or hmgs? is the 240 now usable by infantry?

    Yes but you need to read the 53 pages.


    There's stuff about MGs, firing arcs for dismounts in vehicles, etc.


    I'm not going to go through it and copy and paste it all here.


    i'm going to leave it as a surprise, and see if theres an FN mag and fn minimi when i play, i hope im not disappointed!

    if you want to know, a few more game-breaking crash bugs were found, and is in the process of being fixed.  so if you want to have the best possible experience with the new SB version, oil yourself well up with a bit more patience and sit tight. 

    is there a possibility of 4.0 being delayed till december/2017 still?

    thanks for the update

    Unless I have overlooked an important item (or misjudged the importance of reports submitted over the weekend) I think that we're ready to release 4.0 in the coming days. I'm currently preparing the release notes ... some 50+ pages ... and I think that we should definitely wait for the final verdict of the team on Tuesday. But it would be a real surprise if we don't greenlight the thing.

    There's still work to do. The installer must be built, it must be uploaded, the torrent seed must be created, the web shop updated, etc. --- so, I think that it'll be Wednesday at the earliest, probably Thursday before everything is ready. But you should have good chances to have everything set up for the coming weekend. :) 

    its a little past tuesday now, was the decision made?

    Nothing, provided that the license hasn't expired yet.


    It's been answered by others already. I'm just repeating it so you have a direct, official response. :)

    i think a couple of pages ago, you confirmed a few new pea shooter models?

    can you confirm whether we'll be seeing an fn mag and minimi model? thanks

    Pro PE probably doesn't consider infantry to be anything other than "alive" or "dead", but this separate ammunition may be useful again in the future if troops can ever be "wounded".


    W.German 7.62 ammunition was made with a different jacket material than US 7.62 and tended to produce much more...aggressive...fragmentation on impact...




    Essentially it acts like 5.56mm M193 except on steroids....

    something was mentioned about having a medic in the new SB version, so maybe there is a wounded state now?

    Oh, there will be a few more pea shooter models in 4.0, don't worry. All I'm saying is, don't get the idea that this trend will continue indefinitely. In the pursuit of a comprehensive representation of small arms lies the path to madness. I do not intend to stare for too long into that particular abyss.


    i'm very happy to hear this, looking forward to the coming weeks :)

    it'll be nice to finally have some new lmgs and mmgs

    Don't get me wrong. You can ask for anything. Sometimes however I feel compelled to point out why a certain request is less likely to be considered. Small arms is one of these issues. Functionally, the only difference lies in caliber, effective range, and maybe the rate of fire. Anything else, in the context of Steel Beasts, is merely window dressing. Since there are a lot of small arms models, and since this topic seems to attract gun nerds that tend to get into unconstructive online discussions about the merits of gun X vs. gun Y, I'd rather avoid such situations by making clear right from the start that Steel Beasts doesn't simulate such minutiae.

    i think most people would be happy with a fn mag model, and a minimi being added as these are very heavily used by most major militaries. its very immersion breaking seeing a us army man carrying an MG3 instead of a 249, or a 240 if you're an MG team (infact its what turned me off the game after i bought the one month trial thing).

    i dont think that there is a need for complex small arms simulation, but having the right weapons for the right factions would be a major step up.
