RAF Chinook HC3

by
flax


Description:
As many people will have seen there is an awesome MH-47e addon out there created by Konyo. Some of the features in this helicopter along with the updated model and high resolution textures made it the perfect replacement for the vanilla Chinook - great if you are an American group. I am part of 42 Commando a British unit operating around current day Royal Marines Commandos, we wanted to have this chopper in an RAF skin to use for our operations. So I got in contact with Konyo and he gave us permission to modify the work he had done. I would like to thank Koyno and all the guys that helped him with this mod for creating it, and for allowing us to modify the work. Furthermore I would like to thank Leeds and Porter at 42 Commando for their work with the re-texturing of the aircraft and to the rest of 42 for testing.

A few weeks later and here we have it the RAF Chinook HC3 (Fat Tanks). For more info on the real life counter part see here or here. Some features have been removed and tampered with for various reasons which are listed below:
  • Working Features:
      Correct Number of Flares/Countermeasures in a Forward Direction.
      Lock Dectection System Complete with Warning Sounds.
      Walkable Fuselarge.
      Digital Cockpit for Pilot & Co-Pilot.
      Option to Level, Lower & Raise Ramp.
      New & Improved Flight Engine Sound's.
      Fueselarge Night Lighting.
      Cockpit Night Lighting.
      Improved Gunner Animations.
      Improved Blade System, bend when under load etc.
      Custom Cargo Positions. (BackCrew & Loadmaster)
      Co-Pilot Camera is fully animated. (Thanks yurapetrov!)
      FLIR & Laser Marker on Co-Pilots Camera.
      Animated Loadmasters Hatch.
      Animated Windscreen Wipers.
      ACE Compatability.
  • Removed Features:
      Custom slinging (Will be re-added when working with British Vehicles)
      Custom fast roping (ACE Fast roping works fine for now)
      Ambient Radio Sounds
      Multiple Models (We chose to use the SRO model as it most closely fits the HC3)
      Wrecks (The wrecks are using the wrong model and will be updated)

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.

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


Included files:
raf_HC3.pbo


Usage:
The Chinook HC3 can be found under 'BLUFOR' > 'UK Armed Forces' > 'Royal Air Force (42 Cdo)'.
Only to be used in ArmA2 + ArmA 2 Expansion Packs.

To display a texture of your own onto the flag in the Cargo Area, simply do the following below.
Simply edit a flag or logo of your choice into the white space in the FlagTextureTemplate.png file included in the zip folder.
Once done, save into your mission file as a .paa file, and in the Chinook HC3's init's field put the following:
this setObjectTexture [0,"YourTextureName.paa"];
Then your own flag/logo will display.
