Includes custom dual purpose GPS, Bailout 02 simulation, and gear management system. Works in both single player (shown) and multiplayer (hosted and dedicated). Requires Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead and CBA. The Bailout 02 masks used in the script require the Desert Mercenaries and BlackOps addon by SchnapsdroSel.

While in free fall you can control your Rate of Descent using the Q and Z keys. Doing this, you can free fall in formation with AI units in your squad. They will break formation at 1100m.

This script will only work with the C-130J aircraft! The HC-130J only has 3 cargo positions.


Known issues:
When performing a water insertion in a hosted or dedicated environment, if nobody is in the driver seat and you haven't gotten your equipment back, DO NOT get in a cargo position then switch directly to the driver position. If you do, and you are not the server, the boat will be moved to [0,0,0] on the map when the boat changes locality.
