let me add one more thing.
it seems like we are getting some weapons from VBS also. when we had our upgrade 1.3, it came with XMS, Laser Designator, Steyr Aug, and G36. theses are more suitable for these days. and VBS is known to have them.
also, a few months ago, VBS had pictures of wall with open in the center. now with OFPR we have that too(for example, walls at the western part of Velka Ves, Nogovo). and furthermore, ofp.gamezone.cz noted that in Czech version of OFP, they have some VBS objects like VBS church and VBS building.
so in essence, I think BIS is trying to let general OFP users like us not left behind much in comparison to VBS.
