TGP_Addon_by_Masnooper_v1.1.0_for_ArmA3_(version>=1.54)

 

This is an addon file that:
- Adds a TGP System (Targeting Pod) to most of good planes available.
- It has a monitor!!! :D oh! and a PiP via * button (use Numpad's "." (Dot) to change view)
- Can track moving targets, even soldiers.
- Can lock on buildings, ground and whatever else.
- * FLIR Thermal Night vision and etc...
- ** Key binding
- Different zoom levels even for PiP mode. Good for scouting and lasing and peeping

* Some Features Requires ArmA3 Minimum v1.54
** Key binding system via CBA3

How to use:
 

Spoiler

 

My own way that I suggest is like:
1. First turn on the TGP system (It's at bottom of mouse scroll menu) (Since v5.0: TGP System is On by default)
2. Fly and find your target (one of the easiest ways for vehicles is using an AGM system and spam targeting key toward the horizon "T" or "R")
3. Once you found it, put it in your cockpit HUD and press "T" key once (If do it twice, it will get deselected). So it's name pops up on screen as your target. Like:"TGP locked to T-100 Varsuk")
4.Turn on the laser (My key binding is "Ctrl+H" While not viewing through the TGP monitor (Or open it. my key binding is "H", press Fire key once and close it. My key binding is "LeftShift+H"))
5. Choose descent weapon like GBU, LGB, AGM and etc...
6. Press "R" toward selected target and let the weapon find the laser point
7. If it's an AGM just wait for the full lock and fire it from distance. If it's a bomb, fly over the target and let it go after getting the lock tone and change your direction smoothly
8. If you want to watch it when goes BOOM! open the monitor (My key binding is "H"). You may zoom in and out and after the show, close it (My key binding is "LeftShift+H")



How I lock on building, ground, Soldiers and etc... ?

Technically you can lock onto every possible target in front of your plane by pressing "T" but how much chance you may have to get a lock on an specific building in a city at altitude 4000m ?!

So I suggest the following:

1. While flying over the area, make sure the TGP system is on (It's at bottom of mouse scroll menu) (Since v5.0: TGP System is On by default)
2. Open it (My key binding is "H")
3. Aim it to the target. Like a house or whatever and lock it on the ground. Well, default key binding for Arma 3 is "Ctrl+T". DO NOT DO THAT.
Go to Options>Controls> Weapons>Lock UAV Turret; and change it to something else because if you don't, "Ctrl+T" brings up the GPS targeting system for Firewill airplanes such as F-14, F-15, F-16 and F-2. (My key binding is "LeftCtrl+RightMouseButton") This key binding is a toggle. It means press it once to get the lock and do it again to unlock it
4.Turn on the laser (Just press Fire key once) and close the monitor (My key binding is "LeftShift+H")
5. Choose descent weapon like GBU, LGB, AGM and etc...
6. Press "R" toward selected target and let the weapon find the laser point
7. If it's an AGM just wait for the full lock and fire it from distance. If it's a bomb, fly over the target and let it go after getting the lock tone and change your direction smoothly
8. If you want to watch it when goes BOOM! open the monitor (My key binding is "H"). You may zoom in and out and after the show, close it (My key binding is "LeftShift+H")

 

 

 

 



Known issues:
= Sometimes you may fail to to open the monitor even after turning the TGP on. In that case, just turn it off and back on again. If failed, restart ArmA3
= Some performance problems

Can you add support for the SU-35S? 

As far as I know there is only one SU-35 available in ArmA3, and thats John Spartan & Sauls.

This plane is supported already.

No. That's what the gunner does. I just added this thing to attack choppers to let the pilot have better control about what's going on around them.

You don't have to use it's laser marker but the monitor itself. Of course while hovering, the pilot can find and mark targets for the gunner but that wasn't my porpuse.

I am having so much fun with this. I am sitting in an AH64D using the PiP lasing targets and watching the show!

Can we get a keybind for the "Select TGP Target Map Position" as well. 

Big thanks for making this addon!

Using AH64D to engage from very far away! Only wish my PC was more powerful.

Happy to hear that. Well, TGP TMP is not something that would be used every moments. You set it once from distance and fire. I'm not into adding more key bindigs for now.

In video options of the game, set Objects view distance higher. Not just overall view distance and you are good to go.

Sounds good on keybinds.

I was using the command setObjectViewDistance [8000,800];

I think I just may have reached my machine limit.

Go to options and set 5000,5000 that's OK.
