V22 Osprey

This adds the V22 Osprey to Armed Assault based on the OFP Osprey by Sole and Wipman.

- Carries 1 pilot and 23 passengers
- Working ramp and cargo area
- Working lights
- Working Instruments
- Texture Normal mapping (mostly)
- Damage Textures

Heaps of info on the web like;

Extract the pbo files to your ArmA\Addons folder or as we always recommend use one of the mod folders methods.
If you do not know how to use mod folders have a look in our FAQ.

Included .pbo files:


In the editor you will find this under:
BLUFOR Transport Aircraft
BLUFOR -> Air -> V22 Osprey

V22 Osprey	: GNT_V22
MV22		: GNT_M22
MV22-2		: GNT_M22a
MV22 Special	: GNT_M22D (User Tex ver)

This primarily is a HELICOPTER in the way it flys. While I have tweaked everything so it *nearly* flys like a plane in level flight, DONT DONT DO NOT expect it to fly perfect like a fixed wing plane. (Wait for ArmA2 for that)
Dont dive in level flight and expect to climb out of the dive. Deadly it can be.
The Q key (up pitch) is VERY important.
AI fly pretty good, but big mountains will kill them.

MP Compatible? Should be, there are no scripts.
Signature Key Included

Use the extra PBO file (GNT_V22Tex).
- Un-PBO the file
- User can edit the TGA file templates
- With Texview convert to replace existing PAA files
- PBO the GNT_V22Tex back up
- Select MV22 Special to see result

Known issues:
- (FIXED) Self shadow not working below 30 meters in the air
- Knee window not proper in External or Cabin views
- Undercarriage not going into a proper wheelwells
- Only using copy of UH60 cockpit instrumentation
- Only 2 Resolution LODs
- (FIXED) Not visible under water
- Light source points dont animate at speed
- Altitude sometimes reads zero (because of Roadway LOD, old OFP problem)
- (FIXED) The internal get-out can somethings be more a problem, than a feature.
