Arma 3 will only affect DayZ graphic-side. It will stop being a mod. Rocket can now do what he wants with the Engine

I like your post, it's got a good ammount of information in it.
I recall seeing a Famas rifle in one of the ArmA 3 E3 2012 videos, I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure I saw one.

First of all the arma III engine will be used, secondly they should increase the recoil of all weapons and be inspired by sounds from BF3 since they have the absolute most realistic sound engine ever. :D

Yep I agree it has been always like this with all ArmA title. Don't expect something optimized after release. It will take a lot of time before ArmA3 is optimized, it means years.
