UAV - Pchela fix


Fixes Pchela flight model and turret config. New model with turret! The new model is an invisible box with turret memory points. The model uses the "AttachTo" trick to use the original BIS Pchela model which creates the illusion that the Pchela "model" has a turret. Also a fictional AT model armed with 2x Shturm rockets.

Pchela is present for all sides - OPFOR (Russia), BLUFOR (CDF), and Independent (GUE). CDF faction based on Slatt's CDF Pchela config!

- Pchela UAV's for all sides.
- Use the Pchela UAV in the identical way that the MQ9 UAV is used. Place the UAV module on the map, etc.
- The new Pchela flight model is as close to the original as possible, with modficiations to the sensitivity and envelope settings to keep it from "bobbing" up-and-down. It flies very smoothly now.
- The Pchela-1AT is a fictional anti-tank version armed with 2x Shturm 9K114 AT rockets (same as found on the Mi24 in-game). The rockets need to be at least 800 meters away to work properly... closer seems to be too close to work properly.

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.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.

Included .pbo files:

UAV's are found under new classes:
- Opfor/Russia/UAV
- Independent/Guerilla/UAV
- West/CDF/UAV

Known issues:
1. The AttachTo command is ran at vehicle INIT. Don't be alarmed if you see the Pchela model bounce around at mission startup or vehicle respawn. :)
2. This does NOT remove the default BIS Pchela (from the Air category). The new fixed Pchela is under the UAV category!
3. The new model obviously does not animate the attached BIS Pchela model... so ailerons, etc. will not move.

MLOD is also available from here.
