Starstreak HVM

Phantom Hawk

The Starstreak is a British short range man-portable air-defense system (MANPADS) manufactured by Thales Air Defence (formerly Shorts Missile Systems), in Belfast. It is also known as Starstreak HVM (High Velocity Missile). After launch, the missile accelerates to more than Mach 4 making it the fastest short-range surface-to-air missile in the world It then launches three laser beam riding submunitions, increasing the likelihood of a successful hit on the target. Starstreak has been in service with the British Army since 1997.(info from wikipedia)

This is my first addon so please let me know if there are any bugs. I have tried to make this as close to the actual Starstreak HVM as possible.

Addon features:
- Starstreak High Velocity Missile.
- Starstreak High Velocity Missile launcher.
- Static Starstreak High Velocity Missile launcher (can be disassembled into a weapon bag and tripod bag)
- Ammo box with 20 missiles and 8 launchers (look in props section in the editor).

Missile and launcher features:
- The Missile is what is know as a laser beam riding missile using a laser to paint a target for the missile to get a lock on the target it must be within the aiming crosshairs to lock on to it once fired the missile will automatically fly to the to the target and destroy it.
- The Missile has a max range of 7km.
- The launcher can target both land and air targets like the real Starstreak. it is effective against jets gunships MRAPs and IFVs (though i would not use it against tanks).
- It Cannot be jammed by countermeasures (though it can still miss if the target moves around to much).
- Its high speed makes it more likely to be able to intercept a fast moving aircraft.

Future features:
- Custom static launcher model.

Known issues:
- None that i know of at the moment please report any bugs to me if you find any.

- The launcher is a heavy modified RBS-70 model from ARMA 2: Army of the czech republic DLC as it was the closest model i could find to the real thing.
- The Static launcher is a reskined Static Titan launcher for now.
- The missile model is a heavy modified stinger missile model from ARMA 2 again it was closest model i could find to the real thing.
- When firing the launcher its best to aim it up slightly or the missile will hit the ground and kill you.

To install Starstreak HVM 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.
