Driving down hill at any speed greater than walking, will quite literally kill the crew inside that vehicle; assuming it doesn't fly into the air randomly (hehe).
Attached very obvious demonstration mission. DRIVE AS FAST AS YOU CAN between the road cones.

This has been in the engine for a long time now, but it has been very evident with OA's extended number of mountainous opportunities.

An example of physics once again, just hold E (instructions are in game). This happens a lot more frequently in multiplayer; and has accounted for 15% of our casualties in a patrol mission last night... making very prominent in OA compared to Chernarus/ArmA2.

Very impacting bug.
I'll add that collision detection with rocks on slopes isn't working properly, you collide sometimes 1m away from actual rock, forcing the unit to go up or making it slide down and get hurt.
Many things like that go wrong when on slopes.

Whis this ticket is about something different. :)
Please open a new ticket for the bloody rocks.

Please fix this... this bug seriously limits the scope of missions, as well as greatly increases the frustration of players. I am a mission maker at ARMA 2 tacticalgamer, and this has negatively influenced our gameplay. And it's not only sheer cliffs which cause deaths, its even very smooth gradients. Losing 7 players in a special forces humvee on a no respawn mission is horrible.

Yeah, that's a very frustrating one. Reminds me of the MP motorcycle bug in ArmA 1.

Experienced this last game I had while driving a Stryker. Death while going down a slope, wheels never left the ground. This needs to be fixed ASAP. Tracked Vehicles seem fine, but with wheeled vehicles, staying on the road is the only option in OA at the moment.

But how did you fixed it? Vehicle-wise or generally in the engine by finally fixing the wrong g-force?
