FV432 British APC


Introduced in the 1960's as the standard 'battlefield taxi' of the British Armed Forces the FV432 series AFV has filled many roles in it's lifetime; APC, Ambulance, Command Post, Mortar Carrier, Mine Layer and more. It is still in use today as the Mk3 'Bulldog'.

As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems.
For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

Included .pbo files:

BLX_FV432_Mortar is meant for player control and will only work with the Artilllery Computer ('Fire at position' command etc.) and displays the correct weapon designation.

BLX_FV432_ARTY is meant for AI control and works with the Artillery Module/SOM. It is armed with the default 'M252' mortar to allow it to do so. It is found under 'BLX Support' - which seems logical to me.

BLX_FV432_MC is meant to simulate firing small arms from the mortar hatch.

My favourite loadout is this:
create an empty vehicle and name it.
create a section of your favourite British infantry with the player as section leader.
create two subordinate crewmen and group them with the players group.
move the crew and infantry section into the vehicle.
move the player into the 'top cover' gunners position or use: "player moveinturret [name you gave the vehicle,[1]];" (no quotes).
Now command the infantry section and apc from the slightly 'dodgy' position of top cover!

This is obviously NOT an official addon. Use at your own risk. Do not blame BIS, or me if it doesn't meet your expectations.

You are permitted to install and use this addon for personal entertainment only.

You are free to distribute this addon as you wish, as long as it is kept 100% free of charge, it is not modified in any way and this readme file is distributed with it.
