VLS artillery computer

Recommended Posts

I've seen videos on YouTube of someone accessing a artillery map for the VLS included in the new update.

I can't seem to get it to work.

 

If I set it as artillery support, the artillery menu has the weapon greyed out.

If I set a UAV and take control of it directly, there's no artillery computer option.

 

Have these features been removed?

This is because it's not an artillery weapon. Early development version had that functionality, but they had to take it out to allow the cruise mode to work properly. Either script it or use the gun as naval arty support.

It should be usable as a support provider though, that way it doesn't require someone to go manually launch the missile.

 

The other issue with the current implementation is that the sensor panel only goes up to 16km, making it really hard to use beyond that range.

Can you shoot down the ballistic missile with the AA?

So what's the point of it (Other than being a great set piece)? I'm not sure if it's an issue on my end, but I've not even a way to aim it, just fire off pretty missiles into the atmosphere.

1: Use a drone to laser mark a target

2: Use the drone (UAV) terminal to switch to the VLS

3: lock the VLS to the laser target ("r" key) and press fire

 

works just fine but you need a UAV terminal

After these actions on the card of the ballistic personal computer the laser marker will be visible.
Only there is a condition, on the server or in a mission, an opportunity has to be included - the laser marker is visible.
