ArmA: Armed Assault
|Faction|| U.S. Army|
|Zeroing range||100 m (fixed)|
A simple red dot-type reflex sight, the Aimpoint serves as the standard-issue optical sight attachment of both U.S. forces and private military contractors.
It is only available on two weapon platforms:
Unlike the ACOG riflescope, it is always set to a default zeroing of 100 m.
- The in-game Aimpoint is modelled after the real-world "CompM2" designed by Aimpoint AB of Sweden, and is additionally referred to as the "M68 Close Combat Optic" (CCO) in U.S. military service (and alternately as the "M68 Aimpoint").
- It is the only non-magnified optic available on primary weapons in Armed Assault.
|Zeroing range||Variable; refer to each model for their respective ranges|
|Variants||CompM2, CompM4, RX01, MRAD|
The CCO is used by several BLUFOR factions in ArmA 2.
The CCO is now available in different models depending on the faction using it.
They are all generically referred to as "CCO" and share the same characteristics of being non-magnified sights (as per standard).
However, their reticles and zeroing ranges will differ depending on the weapon platform:
"Basic" variant of the CCO employed by both branches of the U.S. military and Czech special operations.
The CompM2 is available on the following weapons:
- M14 battle rifle (7.62 mm)
- M4A1 carbine (5.56 mm)
- M4A3 carbine (5.56 mm)
- M16A4 assault rifle (5.56 mm)
- Mk 48 Mod 0 medium machine gun (7.62 mm)
The CompM2 relies on a simple red-tinted dot for its reticle. All weapons mounting the CompM2 use a fixed and non-adjustable zeroing of 100 m.
Newer model used by both U.S. Army and British forces. It was added with the release of the Operation Arrowhead expansion pack.
The CompM4 is available on the following platforms:
Like the CompM2, it also utilises a plain red dot reticle and is otherwise no different (functionally) to the "older" CCO. Regardless of platform, it always uses a fixed zeroing of 100 m which cannot be adjusted.
Exclusive to Czech special operations, the RX01 is another variant of the CCO. It was added with the release of the Operation Arrowhead expansion pack.
It is only available on a single platform:
- Sa-58V assault rifle (7.62 mm)
The RX01 always uses a fixed zeroing of 300 m which cannot be adjusted. Unlike the other two models, the RX01's dot reticle is partially illuminated with an amber tint under darker lighting conditions.
Used by the Czech military, the MRAD is another variant of the CCO. It was added with the release of the Army of the Czech Republic DLC.
It is only available on one weapon platform:
- CZ Scorpion Evo 3 A1 submachine gun (9 mm)
The MRAD's zeroing is always fixed at 100 m and cannot be adjusted. It uses a dark red-tinted dot reticle and is otherwise indifferent to other CCO models (besides its appearance).
- Woodland: Two-tone woodland camouflage scheme. Used exclusively on USMC Force Recon M4A1s/Mk 48s fitted with the CompM2.
- Grey: Flat/darkened grey paint scheme. Used by USMC units wielding M16A4s/M4A1s along with U.S. Army M14s fitted with the CompM2.
- Black: Matte black paint scheme. Exclusively used by both U.S. Army CompM4s and Czech MRADs.
- Desert: Two-tone desert camouflage scheme. Only used on Czech CompM2s and RX01s, along with U.S. Army Mk 48s.
- The CCO is the most ubiquitous attachment in ArmA 2 as almost every main BLUFOR faction has one or more of their weapons fitted with some variant of the sight (usually assault rifles).
