Reverse Thrust

by
Jack Ost


Description:
What is it ?
This script allows to simulate in a semi-realistic way the reverse thrust on a plane. It's possible to use pushback on any type of aircraft and to use reverse thrust in flight.


Features:
  • Ground activation : Ground activation allow to simulate the pushback of the aircraft. It means that the plane back with low speed ,it's constant at 5km/h. It works for any aircraft. To turn back on , use the same button to roll left or right but in reverse order ( left-> right). The plane stops after disengaging the system.
  • In flight activation:
    • Use with a propeller aircraft ( registered in the module ) : Reverse thrust snaps directly, it has a role of brake for the plane and causes a very important loss of speed. This will slow down quickly to acquire a low speed or to make a short landing. To gain speed, you must disengage the system and speed up.
    • Use with an airplane without propellers (switch mode deactivate): Reverse thrust does not engage directly, it wait, that is to say that once the landing gear touch the ground, system engage. It will slow down quickly to acquire a low speed and thus make a short landing. Skip to below 80 km / h the system deactivates itself; otherwise the system will stop when you disengage.

Installation:
To install the Reverse Thrust you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
