The AGS-30 is a 30 mm automatic grenade launcher featured in both ArmA: Armed Assault and ArmA 2.


ArmA: Armed Assault

« AGS-30 automatic grenade launcher has been developed as a lightweight alternative to the already proven and successful AGS-17. This weapon is used mostly for infantry fire support, and can be installed on vehicles.

The AGS-30 is used exclusively by the SLA in ArmA: Armed Assault.

Overview

The AGS-30 is a static automatic grenade launcher that is designed to launch caseless 30 mm grenade rounds.

It has a maximum fire rate of up to 150 rounds per minute and has a muzzle velocity of 185 m/s.

The AGS-30's optical sight cannot be used in conjunction with night vision goggles, but has a magnification strength of 1.6x zoom.

Static AGS-30 AGLs always feed from a single pre-loaded 29-round high-explosive (HE) grenade drum, and have a further five more drums to spare for a combined total of 174 grenades.

The AGS-30 is essentially the direct counterpart to the American Mk. 19; both have the exact same dispersion, rate of fire and a similar maximum effective range of 1,500 metres.

The main difference with the AGS-30 is that it fires smaller 30 mm grenade rounds that hit harder (though the difference is practically negligible). Its grenade rounds do travel slower however, mostly due to the AGS-30's lower muzzle velocity of just 185 m/s versus the Mk. 19's 240 m/s.

Trivia

  • Alongside the Mk. 19, the AGS-30 was one of the first two static AGL turrets in the series.

The AGS-30 is used by several BLUFOR, REDFOR and INDFOR factions in ArmA 2.

Overview

Returning from Armed Assault, the ArmA 2 AGS-30 continues to serve as a simple static AGL mounted onto a low tripod.

The AGS-30 retains the same statistics as its predecessor, having an identical muzzle velocity, optics, and right down to the same rotation arc limit.

The two main differences are that it can now be disassembled into backpack form and unpacked at a different location (provided that it is set up on a flat surface). When it comes to fire rate, the AGS-30 has also gained a significant boost and can launch grenades at a rate of 400 RPM.

Unlike taller static weapons, the AGS-30 always uses a low-mount tripod which greatly reduces the gunner's profile and makes them harder to see from afar (and harder to hit as well). Consequently the gunner's firing arc is hampered and their vision will be obstructed if the AGS-30 is assembled behind tall objects.

They have a minimum fuse range of 15 metres. Grenades impacting the terrain below this distance will not explode.


Trivia

  • Like most pre-Operation Arrowhead static weapons, AGS-30s used by in-game CDF and Russian forces cannot be disassembled into a man-portable backpack form.
    • This is because the ability to dismantle/reassemble static weapons was only added with the release of the expansion pack, and was not retroactively applied to the original ArmA 2 static weapons (as none of the pre-expansion pack units are able to carry backpacks in the first place).
  • The in-game AGS-30 (at least for Russian forces) is incorrectly called by its manufacturer name instead of being designated by its real GRAU index code of 6G25.
  • As part of the latest Steam version patches, the AGS-30's fire rate was boosted to 400 RPM and is on par with the MK19 (up from its initial 150 RPM).
