Description :
Addon : Deadfast's Cartridges

Content :
Deadfast's Cartridges is a little eye-candy addon for ArmA.

Allowing cartridges to stay on the ground and simulating ejected ones from mounted weapons on vehicles it brings the atmosphere to a new level!
Nothing better then walking through all that brass at the end of a mission :)


Scripts are pre-compilled and cartridge models do not display in distance to ensure maximal possible performance.

8 cartridge models created by Mondkalb (reference photos by Freshman):
- 9x19 Luger
- .45 ACP (not used ATM)
- 5.56x45 NATO
- 7.62x51 NATO
- .50 BMG
- 20mm
- 40mm grenade
- Hand grenade safety pin
