That is awesome, I have waited sinces the Alpha for a mod like that.

I discovered a problem: The F-16 does not move when you attch to them... When you then drive away and detach it, it gets pulled at you!

It may have physx enabled. Physx adds a brake to the plane so it does not roll on it's own. The 2nd PBO disables physx on some of the Arma planes so they can be towed.

Hi Peral. First congratulations for your addons :D I think it's really useful. However: this set of tractors, can tow also Heliopters? Cause I put some Ah-1, Uh-1 etc under the LHD, but I don't know how to get them out when I need them! Thanks for attention :)

Just saw that on this version, It's still a WIP but i'll look in to that this week. Thanks for bring it up. One of the issues with towing Arma helicopters is they use physx, but if you disable physx the helicopters behave funny, same with planes.

@Peral Any chance of support for the fixed wing assets in Delta gamers brit pack? Or is there a way we can allow them to work with your addon?

Nice work! Cool to see that my towing script still works, although it's way too twitchy with PhysX it seems. I guess a solution with the ropes has to be found somehow, I haven't experimented with it. If I do I'll keep you updated.

Some remarks:

- The wheels of the small towing tractor seem to rotate the wrong way.

- The big towing tractor steers with all four wheels. While this might be possible in real life, it looks wrong in Arma because the rear wheels should steer the other way (to decrease the turning radius. I'd just fix the back wheels if this is not possible with the RV engine.
