Project Reality: Falklands (2012)

Project Reality: Falklands is a spin-off to the Project Reality mod, based on Battlefield 2. The mod focuses on the Falklands War between Argentina and United Kingdom.

The following weapons appear in the video game Project Reality: Falklands:

Contents

Pistols

Browning Hi-Power

The Browning Hi-Power is used by the British faction under the designation "L9A1" with synthetic grips. The Argentinian faction uses the classic Hi-Power with target sights. It is used by the Officer, Pilot and Sniper classes only.

Submachine Guns

M3 "Grease Gun"

The Argentinian faction uses the M3 "Grease Gun". In-game it is referred to as the Halcón ML-63, a real-life submachine gun used by the Argentinians during the Falklands. (It would be more accurate to call it the P.A.M. 1, the 9mm Argentinian variant of the Grease Gun).

Sterling L2A3

The British faction uses the Sterling L2A3 submachine gun, replacing the anachronistic MP5A3 from previous versions. It can be fired either semi or full-automatic.

Rifles

FN FAL

The main service rifle of the Argentinians in-game is the FN FAL, under the designation FM FAL (FM being an abbreviation, "Fabricaciones Militares", the Argentinian plant that built the FN for the government). The main weapon of the British faction is identified as an L1A1 Self Loading Rifle (commonly known as the SLR), however the model is identical to the Argentine FAL lacking the folding charging handle and 2-vent handguard which would be present on a real L1A1. The British Marksman class use an "L1A1" fitted with an L2A2 SUIT 4x scope.

Sniper Rifles

L42A1 sniper rifle

The British Sniper class uses the L42A1 sniper rifle, replacing the out-of-date Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.I(T) from previous versions.

Steyr SSG 69

The Steyr SSG 69 is used by the Argentinian Sniper class, fitted with a bipod. It is referred to in-game as the "SSG-P1".

Machine Guns

Bren L4A1

The British automatic rifleman class uses the Bren L4A4. It can be either fired from the hip or deployed on a bipod. Note that the Bren L4 is the only machine gun in the Project Reality universe that can be fired either semi or full-automatic.

Browning Automatic Rifle

The Browning Automatic Rifle is used the Argentinian automatic rifleman class. It is intended as a temporary placeholder until the development of the FN FALO. It can either fired from the hip or deployed on a bipod. In-game, instead of the player being able to select-fire, the B.A.R fires at 450rpm undeployed and 600rpm deployed.

FN MAG 58

The FN MAG 58 is used by the Argentinian Machine Gunner class, and mounted inside houses for static defense. The UH-1 Iroquois helicopter used by the Argentinian faction has a MAG 58 mounted for the door gunner. The mounted MAG 58 has flipped-up anti-aircraft sights for better accuracy. The MAG 58 is also incorrectly modelled with the carry handle of the British L7 mentioned below.

L7A2 GPMG

The British faction uses the L7A2 GPMG for the machine gunner class. The RHIB (Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats) available to the British faction has a mounted L7A2 with flipped-up anti-aircraft sights.

Hispano.Suiza HS.404

The Hispano.Suiza HS.404 is mounted on the Douglas A-1H Skyraider used by the Argentinians, despite that country never operating it in real-life.

KPV Heavy Machine Gun

The KPV Heavy Machine Gun is used as a mounted Anti-Air weapon by the Argentinian faction, as part of a ZPU-4 quad mount. This is somewhat odd, as the Argentine forces typically used large single or double-barrel AA guns.

L37A1 Machine Gun

The L37A1 Machine Gun, the British version of the M240C, is mounted on the FV101 Scorpion and FV107 Scimitar Armored Reconnaissance Vehicles.

M61 Vulcan

The M61 Vulcan is mounted on the M167A2 VADS (Vulcan Air Defence System) Anti-Air platform incorrectly used by the British faction; the British never adopted VADS. The M167A2 is also anachronistic as the PIVADS program did not start upgrading VADS units to the A2 standard until 1984.

Phalanx CIWS

The Phalanx CIWS (Close-In Weapons System), fitted with the M61 Vulcan, is mounted on the HMS Invincible. This appearance is anachronistic however, as firstly the Phalanx CIWS was not fitted to HMS Invincible until after the Falklands, and secondly the variant featured in game is the Block 1B model which was not introduced until 1999.

MILAN

The MILAN is used as a stationary anti-tank mount by the British faction.

SPG-9 Recoilless Rifle

The SPG-9 Recoilless Rifle is used by the Argentinians as a stationary anti-tank mount, firing both HEAT and HE-Frag rounds.

SA-18 Grouse

The SA-18 Grouse is mounted on a twin turret for use by the Argentinian faction. The launcher is taken directly from previous games and should not really be shown used by Argentine forces.

L16 Mortar

Both the British and Argentinian factions use the L16 Mortar, mounted in foxholes for fire support. The weapon uses the same model as the later US-made M252 variant. These mortars fire high-explosive and smoke rounds. The high-explosive rounds can be configured for either ground-detonation or airburst, the latter spreading shrapnel over a wider distance.

Launchers

M79 Grenade Launcher

Both the British and Argentinian Grenadier class uses the M79 Grenade Launcher, firing both high-explosive and smoke rounds.

M72A2 LAW

The M72A2 LAW is used by the British Light-Antitank Class.

M20 "Super Bazooka"

Both the British and Argentinian Antitank Classes use the M20 "Super Bazooka". This is incorrect for either side: the British had withdrawn their M20s from service about a decade earlier and instead used the Carl Gustav recoilless rifle (under the name L14A1) as their equivalent weapon, while the Argentine forces used the Instalaza M65 Rocket Launcher, a Spanish M20 derivative.

FIM-92 Stinger

The FIM-92 Stinger is used by the British Anti-Air class, both man-portable and mounted in a twin ground mount. While the SAS had access to Stingers, only six were used during the conflict, and just two of these with any result; a more correct weapon for the British forces would be the Blowpipe SAM, which was added later.

SA-7 Grail

The Argentinian Anti-Air class uses the SA-7 Grail. Argentine forces had access to SA-7s during the conflict, having purchased them from Libya, but there is no record of them being used during the Falklands war. Like the British, the Argentine forces used the Blowpipe SAM, with similarly little effect.

Shorts Blowpipe

The Shorts Blowpipe SAM launcher was added to the game some time after release. It is incorrectly depicted as a SACLOS guided weapon: the real Blowpipe used a rather more bizarre system with SACLOS guidance that lasted only two or three seconds, after which it switched to MCLOS tracking mode with the missile controlled via a small thumb joystick. The weapon is much more effective in the game than in real life, where despite being used by both sides, only two kills in the entire war could be attributed to it, one British Harrier and one Argentine helicopter. Royal Marine Brigadier Julian Thompson described using it as like "trying to shoot pheasants with a drainpipe."

Shorts Blowpipe - 274mm / 76mm

Mines

M15 Anti-Tank Mine

The British Combat Engineer faction uses the M15 Anti-Tank Mine.
