We don't have any immediate plans to work on the vanilla mortar system.
ACE have already done a great job in that regard, and at the moment we don't feel we can add a lot more to that.

Considering that many users are likely unfamiliar with artillery systems, @Kofeina101 made a great tutorial on the basic use of the BCS!

 

 

We've also got a video that demonstrates some basic use of the CFCS, and the PGM shell

Ok... 

The LLW team will seize their project for the Artillery Computer of their Pzh2000... 

 

I really would like to help you to get in some functions we have IRL though :D

 

Again, excelent work.

Great work.  What type of rocket  / mines / missiles  CRAM can eliminate in game? 

Share this post

It's based on a selection of a couple of base classes, specifically:

"Sh_155mm_AMOS","Sh_82mm_AMOS_guided","Missile_AGM_02_F","LaserBombCore","BombCore"

So it will engage most types of artillery and mortar shells, including modded ones, it will also engage most regular aircraft bombs and AGMs based on the vanilla maverick.

Full information can be found on the wiki page, including on how to add or remove classes in missions.

 

Currently we do not enable MLRS rockets, as they create a submunition pretty early on for the rocket and we're not able to track that.

any chance to see non steam dl option? 

 

At the moment it's not likely for any imminent updates however, we are looking into providing a more traditional .7zip download through github as well as the steam release for updates further down the line.

We've been busy working away at improvements to the mod this week, though taking a break from some of that I've put together a couple of compatibility mods for use with RHS.
These add variants of the 2S3 and M109 that incorporate features from ITC Land Systems.

The new variants can be found alongside those included with RHS:

  • M109A6 Mod. 0 Paladin 2
    • itc_land_rhsusf_m109d_usarmy
    • itc_land_rhsusf_m109_usarmy
  • 2S3 Mod. 0 Akatsiya 2
    • itc_land_rhsafrf_2s3_tv

These can be downloaded on the steam workshop.

Unfortunately we can't afford the time to offer any tutorials on general TTPs for using artillery beyond system specific help at the moment.

There are multiple sources of instruction on fires procedure available on the internet, I've linked a couple below.

Many communities also have their own methods for this sort of thing have internal training for such roles.

 

ACE3 has the Vector, which is an incredibly versatile tool for any FO, the feature page on the ACE3 website has better instructions than I could give on it's use and features.
Hope these are of some use.

Progress update

As the next feature set is getting more fleshed out, we figured it's time to share some of the things we've been suffering intense headaches working on!

 

Media shown here is WIP and subject to change

One of the things that has been in the works is an overhaul of the current CFCS system, converting it in to a new Firing Command Interface, allowing gun commanders to push detailed fire orders to his gunners from his own FCS, or forward them from the FDC!

Further, we've been working on a counter-battery radar, which can track both incoming and outgoing mortar and artillery shells, and will calculate their origin position, impact position, and time to impact!

kVU4Xw9.png

z9Q4mUE.png

 

And with a feature like that, it felt important to add some opportunity for dramatic effect, so as a little bonus there will be a siren object that will broadcast a warning sound as long as a nearby counterbattery radar is tracking shells that are predicted to impact close to it.

 

As always, if you'd like to stay up to date with the development of ITC Addons, visit our discord!

Progress update

ITC Land work has been halted for a while, but with Encore's release we've been slowly getting back in to it, we intend to next release a compatibility update that'll incorporate the new Encore systems with ITC Land to a basic degree.

Shown in the video is a SAM equipped version of the Mk41 VLS, and an update to the CIWS system that gives missiles a heat signature so the Mk49 Spartan can target them.

Should be great if you add a range table for rhs mortars and ace (without artillery CPU)...there was a mod for this but have a all in one arty mod would be great!!

Have you ever ever try "ace_mk6mortar_useAmmoHandling = true" I think there are some improvements you can do to that too!!

Thanks for your works ..bye

We have no plans for manual reference range tables.

Adding compatibility for the dismounted mortars and towed gun systems presented in RHS' various forms is a low priority for us right now.
Though some additional systems in those mods will get some attention in the compatibility area following our next update (currently delayed due to our various other commitments/interests).
 

As already said earlier in the topic, we are happy with the improvements ACE has done on the Mk6 mortar for now and are putting our interest/attention and energy in other directions for the foreseeable future.

After being for the backburner for a while, the counter battery radar system has gone some overhauls, both functional and physical. It now utilizes the beautiful, and much better suited radars introduced with Encore. It has also been expanded in functionality to allow readout of registered firing positions, and saving them as locations directly in to your BCS.
