Geoms from mod Project Reality have 3 lods("lod0","lod1" and "lod2").We need the first two lods("lod0" and "lod1").They are more qualitative.We delete "lod2" with its meshes - "1" and "ru_kits__SimpleObject", then in "Select Objects" window we select the "lod1" with its meshes(1,2,3,4,5 and "ru_kits__SimpleObject"), the rest we hide using the menu "RMB Menu"(Hide Unselected).We delete all meshes which do not belong to RPG-26 Agleni(the flask, the helmet and pouches), then we select the "ru_kits__SimpleObject" mesh, and in "Right column" under "Edit Geometry" click on "Attach List" in which we attach all meshes into one mesh.
