OH-58 Kiowa Warrior ACE
by
southy


Description:
Conversion the the standard BIS Kiowa Warrior from Flashpoint to Arma and now to Arma2.

It uses for the most part ACE weapons and fire and control systems, all thanks to Stiltman for the config work.
Treat this as an alpha version, it's missing the sounds and other adjustments from the standard addon.

OH-58 Kiowa is a family of single-engine, single-rotor, military helicopters used for observation, utility,
and direct fire support. Bell Helicopter originally manufactured the OH-58 for the United States Army, based on the
206A JetRanger helicopter. The Kiowa has been in continuous use by the U.S. Army since 1969. The latest model,
the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior, is primarily operated in an armed reconnaissance role in support of ground troops.


Features:
Fully functioning cockpit with dials etc.
All versions will have the Mast Mounted Sight, operated by the gunner, primary use is for laser designation/spotting.
Zoom is approx 1.5 longer than cobra.

Weapon loadouts:
2 x Hellfire, 1 x XM296 .50 Cal. (12.7-mm) machine gun
2 x hellfire, 7 rnds FFAR
7 rnds FFAR, 1 x XM296 .50 Cal. (12.7-mm) machine gun
7 rnds FFAr, 7 rnds FFAR
2 x Hellfire, 2 x Stinger
Bonus 2 x Aussie camo versions:
2 x Hellfire, 1 x XM296 .50 Cal. (12.7-mm) machine gun
1 version unarmed


Installation:
We always recomment to use modfolders.
Check our FAQ for how to do it.


Included files:
south_oh58.pbo


Usage:
Found under Bluefor > Air > US ARMY


Future plans:
I also have big plans for the next release, at the moment the addon will split in two, one will be 100% ACE to make use of the ACE systems/weapons the other not dependent on anything.
