Description

During a mission to deploy a comms tower, we loaded a MTVR with the comms tower crate and then carried it via chinook to the location marked. After gaining the neccesary altitude, I attempted to airdrop the vehicle, at which point it just seemed to disappear. We searched for it for a good 20 minutes, but it seemed to have vanished off the map.

We were playing on the Northern Takistan mission, and it was on a dedicated server, if that affects anything.

Replicated the issue. This stems from the container Attach To command. The Truck and the container are dropped at "NULL" position which is at [0,0,0] (bottom left of the map).

Fix will involve either capablility to lift container or lift truck, but not lift truck with container attached.
