HAFM EC-635 Helicopter

by
Aplion


Description:
This addon it is not part of my HAFM mod as Hellenic Army does not own this type of helis and it will be considered as an individual addon. Also note that this addon is free of any other mod depentancies and tested only in vanila game (so before you will report any errors please ensure that you have tested like that).

This release includes three (3) variations:
- Support, equiped with a .50 cal MG into an HMP-400 pod and an M261 rocket launcher (12 DAR rockets) plus a working Laser Designator and FLIR.
- AT, equiped with a .50 cal MG into an HMP-400 pod and four (4) TOW missiles plus a working Laser Designator and FLIR.
- Unarmed, just FLIR for observation.

The model is Slingload ready and compatible with AGM Fastrope (this will change when ACE3 have this function). Also as it includes the RotorLib properties, anyone can use the AFM (Advanced Flight Model). Lastly, the chopper has the FFV capability (Fire From Vehicles) with two (2) positions on side doors (doors must be opened prior the use of the FFV).

You will find this addon as modfolder ready, properly signed (also a server key is included) with an extra .txt file with all classnames. Also note that the config is included in a seperate pbo, just to make easier any future update.


Installation:
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
-mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

Note:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.


And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.

Special thanks for this addon are for my friend audiocustoms which made the custom sounds and the German textures for the Bundeswehr faction, plus for his exellent work on chopper FLIR - all credits goes to him.
Also many thanks to Dragonsyr and my gamming team for beta testing and ofcourse to BIS and community here.


License / Disclaimer:
I'm giving the permission to anyone wants to retexture it or even include it in other mods, so no need to ask me for that. Appropriate credits would be much appreciated if so.
