GLT GBU-43/B Massive Ordinance Air Blast, aka "Mother of all bombs"


As you guess, this addon adds the GBU-43/B bomb to CO/OA.

How to use:
Unlike other aerial weapons, this bomb doesn't come with a pre-set plane (like GBU-12 on a A-10).
Instead, you'll find the GBU-43/B in the editor under "Empty > GLT - MOAB".
You have to place it manually and then ingame load it into a C-130J.
Place a C-130J close to the GBU-43/B and you'll get an action entry on the bomb to load it into the plane.
If more than one C-130J's are present, the nearest is selected.

Due to it's power, i've decided to include several restrictions so it wont be overpowered.
- it is limited to C-130J (US and USMC) as drop platform
- you can either transport soldiers or the GBU-43/B, not both
- after drop, the weapon is removed from the plane so no reload on ammo truck
- the unloaded GBU-43/B can be damaged/destroyed. Although the detonation isn't as huge as of regular drop, i wouldn't be closer than 100m to it.
- If damaged more than 50%, the GBU-43/B has to be repaired (targeting electronics) before it can be loaded into a plane
- GBU-43/B can be unloaded on ground if necessary

Please keep security distance to impact point of at least 400 meters (goes also for dropping C-130J) to avoid serious injuries or death.

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.
