The MOS (full name: Marksman Optical Sights) is a medium powered, variable-magnification sniper scope primarily used by both NATO forces and in limited numbers with the AAF in ArmA 3.

Design Edit

It has a magnification strength range of 2.5x-5x and can often be seen mounted on sniper rifles such as the M320 LRR. It is also commonly found attached to designated marksman rifles like the Mk18 ABR.

The MOS has a minimum zeroing range of 300 m to a maximum of 1600 m. It has a backup iron sight that uses a fixed zeroing range of 200 m.

Camouflage Edit

  • Black: Standard matte black finish. Used by both Mediterranean NATO forces and the AAF.
  • Khaki: Light khaki green paint finish. Used by Pacific NATO forces.

Trivia Edit

  • The MOS is not directly based on any real-world sniper scope but draws similarities to various designs made by Schmidt & Bender and Leupold Optics.
  • Prior to the release of the Marksman DLC, the MOS was called the SOS (Sniper Optical Sights) and used the same reticle as the LRPS.
