Steerable TOW
by
sa8gecko


Description:
This addon gives you control over the TOW on Humvees.


Installation:
Just extract the pbo(s) in the addons-folder and you should be good to go.
Or (as we always recommend) use mod folders to keep your mods organized and prevent errors.
Check our FAQ for a clear explanation.


Included files:
MCAR_towHumvee.pbo


Usage:
The unit can be found in the editor under 'BLUEFOR>Cars>modified HMMWV TOW'.
It doesn't substitute the BIS one.


Media:
Watch a video of this in action here on YouTube. The video was made by Shins.


Notes:
Since this is only a try, the script is written in old OFP style (no execVM) and it spits out some globalchats for range and speed.
The missile speed infact has been modified to match the true one and range (almost, but anyway better than before).
Optics have been zoomed: default is 10x, minimum is 4x and max is 20x.
Don't lock to your intended target, just switch to optics, pull the trigger and steer the missile using optic view. The missile should follow the crosshair centre: I was able to kick down a single tree at 1500 meters and a moving T72 at 1000 meters.
As I said above, don't complain for globalchats: if you do, just open the pbo and remove them from the 'fired.sqs' script.
Also, the AI probably can't use it properly or anyway will end up using it as the standard tow humvee.

Not tried in multiplayer
