There are no conventional, ship-based ballistic missiles currently in the US service. In fact, as far as I know, the only naval ballistic missiles outside Chinese military are SLBMs. I know you can have a fictional missile, but I don't think something like that would happen IRL.

all I ask is to put ballistic computer on vls mk41 because the laser designer on drone these not easy to guide

As mentioned many times before in this thread, the ballistic computer does not work with missiles, only shells (the 230mm rockets are defined as shells in the Arma engine).

 

With the drone, you can use ctrl-T to lock the camera to a target or position. Maybe that makes it easier?

Also, you dont have to use the drone. You can also use the target designator under "turrets". It is colapsible and can be carried as a backpack.

To be exact, you also do not need a laser target because the VLS can attack any target marked via data link, such as radar-reported targets

 I'm already cool and trying to fix the code for new missiles to shoot them without the UAV terminal!)))) That's why I love arma)))

Awesome! That's why we love Arma too, why we love our community and why so many of us come from the community too or feel as a part of it.
Feel free to share your solution with us!

It does not cancel what should be included in the module to call a missile strike. I'm not talking about ballistic computing, I'm just talking about the possibility of calling this hit in the direction of the target that the player or unit will highlight laser designator. And it will all be voiced and look as it should. If I can do that and the developers all the more can do it, because you guys "gramotnej" me in this matter and do everything as it should. Can leave with this unmanned version no one against will not) hope for you!!! No. I really hope for you!!!

And the question is still relevant:
What about the women and the surrounding life on the island?
Will not be?

I apologize for the bad English (Google Translator is all to blame).

You can even just have a man with a laser designator as that will broadcast via data link as well. 

As has been said before missiles don't work with the artillery computer and trying to reprogramme it to do so wouldn't be worth the effort, but what I've wondering if they could modify the firing solutions so that NLOS weapons like cruise missiles and artillery/mortars, could be used by the AI over terrain. The ai has the ability to use these weapons effectively and at long ranges without user input but its inability to do so with terrain on the map seems to be a bit of limiter on these assets as it forces us to  use scripts to make them work as  they should.

Yeah i think extending the fire support module to include the cruise missile may be a good idea (it already has CAS support).

A lot of us would love to see women in both military and civilian roles in Arma, but the devs have long made clear that this will not happen in Arma 3. Arma 3 development is winding down anyway. DayZ: Standalone does have women, so hopefully they are included in Arma 4...

If arma 4 will be to arma 3 what arma 3 was to arma 2, I'd not get my hopes up.

The smartest thing to do would be if ArmA4 is to ArmA3 what ArmA2 is to ArmA1: Using all of the existing assets from A3, but with upgraded textures, as well as adding lots of new stuff. For this to make sense, this also means that a potential A4 has to be set somewhere between 2015 and 2040, though (which I would have no problem with at all... Sorry, but I don't want the cold war times again). Anyway... I think mechanic-wise, A3 is a good foundation.. it's just that it all needs to be tied together to make it feel like a coherent package... and it needs a lot more bug fixes. Both things I'm hoping the future A4 will bring to the table.

quick question: in multiplayer i had glitches with the "boat rack", which i put on the new destroyer.

when "unloading", the crew of the boat sometimes gets killed and sometimes the "boat rack" vanished after unloading (sometimes both).

 

i am running complete vanilla and no sophisticated scripting envolved. are there some preferred simulation settings for the destroyer and boat rack? (i mean deactivate physic interaction or sth.? until now i had the destroyer in default mode and the boat rack + boats with simualtion manager active (because the simulation manager is really great btw.)

 

quick tipps much appreciated!!

 

ps: this post is also a very low key bug report. thanks for reading!

Guys the Destroyer is fucking invincible. No matter how many fast crafts you have coming the CIWS goes absolutely ballistic and can nuke targets 1km away. 

 

I've put 3 CSAT submersibles and 14 speedboats trying to get close and none of them made it, with land artillery and aerial support. This was with 2 destroyers.

 

You can't even get in position of any CIWS to use satchels so they're there for good unless you have remote sentry otpion which would also get destroyed. Bloody hell how is this supposed to happen alongside a carrier with 80 planes ready to fly off and flatten continents.  mad

So, everything seems all right with the Destroyers.

The problem is, the destroyer is undestroyable. :e:

 

RIP AAF, the campaign didn't need an invasion considering it would be over before it started with the cruise missile.

You just need a few HARMs and that thing is fucked up because the only direct firing weapons for self defense are using active radar. A single aircraft with the right payload can deliver quite a punch to it since its longest range anti air weapons with the standard configuration are those RIM 116 with a range of I think 5 km max. Without the radar support by the Praetorians even within 5 km they are pretty bad when it comes to find and track a target.

Which way did it kill the submersibles on the depths?

Can detect the subs even 5m underwater. Pointless to use the periscope as you 'll have to be hugging the seafloor to get close. And again, you can't even use satchels on the destroyer becasue you can't reach any of the turrets.

Radar sensors are able to detect submarines 5m below surface?

There might be a problem with knowsabout/reveal.

Before when you did a "reveal" command the unit would go into combat mode as if attacked,, now AA launcher equipped unit will not even fire at a helicopter within 800m of it even if you "reveal".

Helicopters ignore infantry if it is revealed to them, and only react to it when they start shooting, although combatmode is "RED" so reaction should be straight forward.

Can the specular maps be tweaked for the files "hl_white_hairy_muscular.rvmat" and "hl_white_hairy_muscular_injury.rvmat"? Currently, the fingernails look unnaturally bright and shiny. Another way to fix this would be to simply swap this RVMAT out for "hl_white_bald_muscular.rvmat" on all models that use the former.

 

Here's what I mean though:

As of now, it seems like the AAF combat fatigues, most of the FIA stuff, and some of the Syndikat stuff uses this RVMAT.
