AH-64D Apache Longbow for ArmA3 by Nodunit and Franze

Recommended Posts

AH-64D Apache Longbow Public Release v1.42 for ArmA3

 

UPDATE: Source files are available below!

This is our AH-64D originally made for ArmA2, ported to ArmA3 with various bug fixes. This is considered a WIP addon.

 

What it has:

 

Same features as ArmA2 version, minus the campaigns and missions. There is only one demo mission included as a familiarization mission.

 

Bugs:

 

Numerous.

- Gun tracking does not work in multiclient aircraft.

- AFM is far from perfect.

- PhysX still causes some severe wonky issues.

- Targeting scripting and various MPD pages have issues in ArmA3 due to scripting demands.

- Too lazy to document all known issues at this time, etc.

 

Currently, the aircraft is mostly playable in single player and in multiplayer, so it is functional at a minimum. Most of the major bugs have been quashed at this time.

 

Future Plans:

 

I have many future plans for the aircraft at this time, however that is all dependent upon my free time and ability to work on them. A much more vast and comprehensive campaign is planned; I am unwilling to expand on the full details of the campaign at this time, as I cannot make any guarantees that it will be done in a reasonable amount of time.

its working  ... but How can I lock a target ?

Tab for missiles, or go through the action menu and select gun tracking to switch it to "AUTO" and it will snap to targets indicated by the dashed crosshair.

Thanks so much franze and nodunit! I was just learning how to fly this when the last game update started causing errors from the Apache.it's great that i can get back into the pilot seat.

 

Also-for any Apache enthusiasts out there, I highly recommend reading "Apache" by Ed Macy-a fantastic book from a British Apache Pilot in Afghanistan.

"Hellfire" as well which is more of a biography of the days leading up to Macey becoming a pilot as well as some more operations in Afghanistan.

Thats right-I just finished "Hellfire".It has a lot of interesting aspects and details of training too. i found Apache to be more exciting though! ;) Especially Jugroom fort...

You can get the key from the ArmA2 release for now; next update I'll remember to add it to the package.

Huh, waiting for it for half year. Thank you! Really appreciate yours work. 

 

Maybe for some people  it could be hard to move few files and create 2 new folders (@, and addons). So i'll recommend to put it in right order.

Having trouble firing the hellfires, Ive read through the manual,

 

I get a good lock, then fire, but the hellfire just fires straight forward and not to target, any ideas?
