Having a lot of fun with this.

But I would love to execute my copilot and dump his body in the ocean.

This is the best thing in the arma 3 workshop in my opinion.
Anyone know how i can get a black kajman though?

One of the best mods I tested good job !

BTW im using helmet mounted display so dont know it may be an issue with that (infact i completed all the other missions with no problems)
Mimi The Saviour Dec 9, 2014 @ 12:36pm 
Great scenario StrongHarm! However im having dificulties with the logistich mission (the one on night time). After killing all soldiers in the ambush positions the trucks that are not with the main convoy suddenly blow up, leaving me with no way of completing the mission. I always contack Jtac and siprep and they say there are 0 contacts enganging, so i suspect the trucks self destruct or something when not able to return to the main convoy.

Eagerly awaiting for CAS day 3!

how do i open the "radio menu"?
fleckterd Dec 2, 2014 @ 2:26pm 
Seems good, but my pilot won't obey my commands, he inisits on going back to the FOB from my first assignment, even when we have a different AO.

Im having an issue that i probably shouldnt be having but i dont know how to ask for tasks? ive tried my radio menu, could tell my pilot what i wanted him to do and everything but i cant request an actual mission to do. any help please
StrongHarm  [author] Nov 17, 2014 @ 12:33pm 
Daisai.. read the board you see when you first start the mission.. it gives you instructions. To request a task from command use your radio menu.
Daisai Nov 12, 2014 @ 7:09am 
I am not recieving any tasks when i start this mission, what is the expanded commands you are talking about ?
Drahkken Nov 9, 2014 @ 8:29pm 
Superb mission. Truly excellent. Great variety of objectives (All CAS), great 9-line audio. Interesting and challenging especially with Advanced Flight Model turned on. *thumbs up*

Just want to say that I'm new to AMA3 and very new to downloading content from Steam. This is my 2nd d/l and I love it. Great job. Please don't let the haters stop you from continuing your good work.

Merci strong man, pour le travail énorme que cela demande. Merci de faire des scénario aussi bien réfléchit. Thank you

mate epic job! keep it up, i think there are more people out there that actually appreciate the massive amount of effort put into these, than there are ones who bitch about niggly shit.
StrongHarm  [author] Oct 2, 2014 @ 8:20am 
Thompson.. you're a fucking idiot. I stopped hanging with that clan.. because of fucking idiots.. and I stopped editing this mission to keep it current with the patches.. because of fucking idiots. So you see.. you and people like you have a big impact on the Arma3 ecosystem.. you've created a kind of 'reverse natural selection' where you drive away us 'creative developers with military experience'... and all that's left is.. well, you.. and a bunch of fucking idiots. Have a nice day.

Im having a problem with this mission, every time i choose "RTB winchester" it says "hold position to break orbit"... but im not in orbit and choosing "hold position" doesnt fix it since im already stopped." Yes indeed it is busted. Almost all the missions that he and S Team made that we tried to run on JTF2 was always busted! He and a few of the founding members got into and thus the reason the unit fell apart.

Man, i think i already mentioned, but did you think about making a module which makes available giving orders to pilots? Think about this: Game has an extreme lack in this way. Playing as gunner has actually 0 support as AI is extremely stupid when it comes to piloting, not being able to STOP if there are nearby enemies, not being able to land, not being able to change altitude....

I mean, if you where able to made what you have already done in this mission (even less) in a mod which could aply to game , you would probably safe the broken AI pilot system and give it a new level.

People who likes helicopters, could actually USE helicopters :D.

Would that be difficult?

Here is a more formal request:

Doing it with the pawnee and... DUDE THIS IS F_ING AWESOME :D Duct tape eh??? :DDDD
boycey05 Aug 28, 2014 @ 8:52am 
Also is there any way what so ever to make this 2 player compatible?
boycey05 Aug 28, 2014 @ 8:52am 
OK played this through as the gunner and it was good and enjoyable, I guess at some stage I will attempt this mission playing only as the various JTAC's, although I can see that being real tricky

Thanks for uploading this, hopefully you have something else in the works
madbanana Aug 22, 2014 @ 3:30am 
Awesome stuff!!

this mod is amazing, I just wish vanilla pilots had this controllability!

boycey05, be sure to read the notes, and take notice of the custom action menu when you're in the gunners seat. I prefer the AI Pilot with the custom menu to most RL Pilots in MP heheh.
boycey05 Aug 8, 2014 @ 12:56pm 
Played it as the pilot all the way through and will definitely be replaying it on higher difficulties and just to generally improve, thanks for the mission

Will try as a gunner also to see how the AI does as pilot

Yea, I found it about 10 seconds after I posted. THanks.
StrongHarm  [author] Jul 30, 2014 @ 6:43pm 
Space Tiger.. hit your zero key.
Tiger @ Work and Bored Jul 30, 2014 @ 12:01pm 
What's the 'Radio key' that's referenced several times in the instructions?
MLswe Jul 14, 2014 @ 12:24pm 
Among the best I have tested :) THX :) !!
StrongHarm  [author] Jul 13, 2014 @ 7:20pm 
Thank you Valtros! High praise!
Valtros Jul 8, 2014 @ 10:25am 
This is fantastic! It is by far the most enjoyable attack helo mission set I've played and very immersive too. The voice acting, the radio chatter, the airfield activity, and just the sheer amount of detail you have put into this masterpiece is impressive and outright phenomenal.

I enjoyed playing as the pilot and I'll certainly enjoy playing as a gunner and JTAC. Thank you so much for this contribution to the Arma 3 Community!

U key (or whatever you bound switch team member to). Take note that you should fly your bird near the AO before you switch to JTAC. Things go.. smoother that way.
Krondike Jul 2, 2014 @ 2:08pm 
I can play as JTAC too? how? sorry if I misundertood your briefing video
StrongHarm  [author] Jun 29, 2014 @ 9:19pm 
That's true crw.. but CCA has predefined mission parameters.. they're attached to an action.. where CAS is an interchangable term used for birds that loiter on station to provide support upon request for any action within part of the theater. But I get your point.
crw92662 Jun 29, 2014 @ 9:00pm 
Just a thought.. but CAS is Jet Fighters..

CCA is Helicopter (Close Combat Attack)
StrongHarm  [author] Jun 18, 2014 @ 6:54am 
@Mech - Are you in the aircraft when you request a mission? If in an aircraft you should be able to hit 0-0 to show the task request menu item.
Mechanique Jun 17, 2014 @ 3:33pm 
I was able to play for a few missions, but then all the radio commands were gone. Tried restarting, removing all missions files and re-downloading, nothing seems to work. Any ideas?
cat of feed May 28, 2014 @ 12:49am 
@StrongHarm, have you tried the Apache mod by Nodunit and Franze? It works in Arma 3 now and flying it in the mission is just incredible.....
Gotta play the Arma 2 version to learn how to use it though
StrongHarm  [author] May 20, 2014 @ 9:10am 
You're welcome Roshi. @Alhevi, I'm currently in work on Close Air Support(Day3). It will have separate tasks for fixed/rotor wing based on the bird you're in when you request a task.
Alhevi May 20, 2014 @ 6:26am 
Is there a version to play a plane?
Master Roshi May 14, 2014 @ 9:45am 
Thank you for your service.
k.Lee117 May 11, 2014 @ 4:36pm 
Please add COOP soon, while the ai gunner is ok...it is only just bearable. 2-4 players would be perfect.

I was at red flag in nellis a couple times. also did red flag alaska once.
StrongHarm  [author] May 3, 2014 @ 9:57am 
wasful, I'm sorry you were offended by the video. It's simply what I based the mission on. Yes it's brutal, but war is a brutal thing and this all pertains to war. I lost my sensitivity to such things during my time at war. It didn't occur to me that someone would be affected by the video since you can't look into the man's eyes while he bleeds out.. that's where my level of sensitivity begins. I sincerely apologize.
wastul May 3, 2014 @ 5:24am 
great Map, but why the 3rd Reallife Video. This is brutal ,stupid Shit. Sorry Man make Arma not War
[P&E] Ember Celica Apr 29, 2014 @ 7:10am
