The LRPS (full name: Long-Range Precision Scope) is a high-powered, variable-magnification sniper scope used by NATO, CSAT and the AAF in ArmA 3.

Design[]

The LRPS retains a magnification strength range of between 6x up to a maximum of 25x.

It has a minimum zeroing range starting at 300 m that goes up to a maximum of 2,400 m (it should be noted that some limits differ depending on the weapon platform). Unlike its smaller counterpart, it does not feature a backup iron sight for use in close quarters.

The LRPS uses a mil-dot reticle, and is intended for large calibre sniper rifles only*. This includes:

(*) Although technically intended for just sniper rifles, larger marksman rifles chambered in both .338/9.3 mm are still compatible with the LRPS. Some minor zeroing adjustments may need to be made to accommodate for the difference in ballistic profiles beyond ~ 750 metres however (+100 m or -100 m), as they are not intended to be used for engagements beyond 1,000 metres.

Camouflage[]

  • Black: Standard chrome black finish. Used by Mediterranean/Eastern European NATO forces, Mediterranean CSAT snipers, and the AAF.
  • Tropic: Forest green/jungle-themed camouflage spraypaint. Exclusive to Pacific NATO snipers.
  • Green Hex: Tropical Hexacam camouflage pattern. Only utilised by Pacific CSAT snipers.

Trivia[]

  • The LRPS is based on the real-life "NXS 5.5-22x56" riflescope manufactured by NightForce Optics, Inc.
  • It was not originally available at ArmA 3's launch and was only added as a usable scope with Game Update 1.08.[1]
  • Prior to the release of the Marksman DLC, the LRPS used the same reticle as the SOS (now known as the MOS).[2]
  • The Tropic and Green Hex camouflage variants were not added until the release of the Apex expansion pack.[3]
