I would like to see a U-2 because iv never seen one in Arma before. I believe that it would be useful for recon mission in Arma because of its capabilities. Its serves a great purpose in the us air force today and i hope it will in Arma.

Here is some info on it:

It's not used in USAF today and there is no real way to use these kind of aircraft in ArmA unfortunately. The plane would also be moving too fast to cover the area you want to surveillance.

You can but what are you planning to do with an AI controlled U-2? I mean it'd look cool but it wouldn't do anything you know?

you could use it for its purpose recon. If someone could put a working camera it. And no, player controlled.

Hey. The U2 already exists in ArmA. Check out the Alphasims free planes conversions by mucep (google will bring it up) and download the entire WoP5.5 pack. It includes a u2 and if you don't want the other ~30 planes included in the pack, you can simply deleta all .pbo's except u2.pbo and wop_gui.pbo
