Description

- Currently when you select the MQ-9 Reaper in mission editor the UCAV is piloted by inboard crew, the UCAV should be remote controled from a ground terminal station.

- another changes concern the Missile firing. could you introduce the same system as for Apache/Cobra firing style :

you add the laser designator option into the mouse menu (enable/disable it) then simply shot the hellfire where you are lasering at.

the current system is confusing, you must designate a target then switch to hellfire, but the hellfire doesn't hit where you are aiming at.

the terminal ground station for MQ-9 Reaper.

my idea is : when you approach this terminal ground station, a mouse menu option appear and you get inside and connect either as pilot or gunner to one of the UAVs you placed on the map.

it could give you the choice to switch between different UAVs.

Sounds more reasonable for A3.

I agree that the terminal ground station idea should wait for Arma 3, nothing urgent and too much of work.

but concerning the missile guidance system, a fix should be implemented for arma 2.

The current system is pretty unusable.

Hellfire (AGM114-K) on MQ9 Reaper should work the same way as for Apache/Cobra :

- gunner enable/disable laser designator in mouse menu
- aim at target
- shot... bullseye !!

VBS2 has this system, see the result :
