APEX Drakon - Jet Powered UAV

Description
ARM, FLY, DOMINATE.

The APEX Drakon is the top of the food chain when it comes to quick, precise air strikes. Equip yourself with an extremely powerful jet-powered UAV for Arma III and absolutely control the battlefield. Equipped with a custom loadout editor, you'll be able to create the drone loadout you need for any situation. You'll find yourself in the air far more and re-arming far less.

Addon Contents
Includes the APEX Drakon .pbo file which comes with a single Drakon and a custom loadout editor built into the mod.


READ THIS FIRST!!!
In order to spawn weapons on the UAV, you must place an ammo vehicle next to it such as the HMMT Ammo truck. These vehicles are located under the Support units menu. Also, spawn a NATO version of the Drakon so it comes with the AI needed to control it. If you spawn an empty one, you have to hack the UAV first.



FEATURES
Jet-powered UAV system
Nearly double the speed of vanilla UAV systems
4 external hardpoints and 1 internal bay
Custom loadout editor and service menu

(To be included in future builds)
HELLAD Solid State Laser system
Multiple camouflage patterns
Stealth and Laser selectable variants
Re-built UAV terminal

HOW TO USE:

Once in game you must spawn an ammo support vehicle next to the Drakon in order to access the APEX Support Menu. Enjoy!



KNOWN ISSUES
Keep in mind the Drakon is still very much in an alpha state. This is our first release and there WILL be bugs. Here are a few we are aware of:

The Drakon still uses Arma III's unfavorable UAV system. We know, it's something we want to get away from.
The Laser Designator doesn't spawn on the UAV unless you first apply a loadout.
The UAV flight model needs to be cleaned up. It currently floats too easily and the stall speed needs to be adjusted.
The UAV turret cam works when it is stowed away, allowing you to see inside the drone. This will be fixed in a future patch.
The Drakon doesn't work with ACE's missile system. We're working on that. For now, do not use with ACE.


There may be many others. These are just the ones we're very aware of. Feel free to PM me with any bugs you find outside of these ones.



THANK YOU! PLEASE ENJOY OUR MOD!
