Description

Repro

- Open mission's editor on any map.

- Place a UH1Y (arma2 unit) on the map.

- Use the following initialization:
this addMagazine "60Rnd_CMFlareMagazine";
this addweapon "CMFlareLauncher";

OBS

When in game the helicopter seems not to have flares.

Expected

It should be possible to add flares to the UH1Y like any other air vehicle.

The problem is that pilot isn't UH-1Y's gunner. Thus, when you use the addWeapon and addMagazine commands, they are added to one of the gunners instead to pilot.

Yes,but why is it working fine on apaches or kamovs and sukhoi 34 ? without "manual fire".

Your problem is this #2962 and the different turret structure in the UH-1Y

vehicle player weaponsTurret [0]
=>
["M134","CMFlareLauncher"]

You have it available at the "crew chief seat".

then, it needs to be available from pilot's seat.
