Throwable Satchel
by
Robalo_AS


Description:
This mod allows a demolition expert (usually engineers and special forces soldiers) to convert a regular satchel into a throwable one and back.
To convert, you must first select it (cycle weapons until the satchel is selected) then use the scroll menu action.
It can then be thrown over a very short range (max 10m) in the way grenades are used.
You can use it to blow stuff up when you can't get there and set it manually, or like a last-resort AT weapon, for example to throw demo on top of a tank that's on the other side of the wall, or from a roof.
Use your imagination, be creative Once you throw it, quickly get away and cover yourself from the blast.
For simplicity, the fuse is very short, preset to burn in 10 seconds and it cannot be adjusted.
The explosive properties are unchanged from a regular satchel.

It is heavily recommended that this addon is installed on all machines in a multiplayer game for fairness and stability.


Installation:
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.

1. Determine which files you need. There are 3 addons:
    a. asr_throwablesatchel
    b. asr_throwablesatchel_oa
    c. asr_throwablesatchel_oa_ace
Use:
a. - for Arma 2
a. + b. - for Operation Arrowhead Standalone or Combined Operations
a. + b. + c. - for Operation Arrowhead Standalone or Combined Operations and the ACE2 mod.

2. Copy the selected .pbo and .pbo.bisign files to a mod (addon folder) and launch the game with that mod loaded.


Included .pbo files:
asr_throwablesatchel.pbo
asr_throwablesatchel_oa.pbo
asr_throwablesatchel_oa_ace.pbo
