Armed Assault International Patch 1.05
2007 Bohemia Interactive Studio. All rights reserved.

This file will update your Armed Assault installation to version 1.05

This patch contains a lot of changes and fixes. Installation will take a long while (could be more than 30 minutes on slower systems). Please do NOT restart your computer if you think the installation has failed. It will end automatically, just be patient.

    1. Unpack the file

The 1.05 patch is not compatible with previous versions. If you update your arma installation to 1.05 you can not join servers running any lower version.

Dedicated server file (win32):
The Windows Dedicated Server EXE is installed automatically with this patch.

Server admins should note that if they update the server to 1.05 they will have to reinstall any modified files.

    ===How to use STOVL===
    Harrier (AV8B) can now perform Short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL).
    It is controled with "Autohover ON/OFF" action.
    When activated, there is no such autopilot for slowdown that helicopters use.
    Thrust vector is just rotated downwards. Q/Z keys control only airplane speed.
    There are no keys for control over vertical thrust,
    so it is not possible to hover up/down like in helicopter.
    Takeoff procedure:
    - activate Autohover
    - extend full flaps (2x crtl+K)
    - gain some speed by holding Q for a short while and then release it.
    - once in the air, retract gear (crtl+G)
    - hold Q a little longer until you move fast enough
    - retract flaps as you build more speed (2x ctrl+L)
    - at aprox. 180kmph toggle autohover off and control flight as regular aircraft
    Landing procedure:
    - reduce speed and altitude same way as during conventional landing
    - extend full flaps (2x crtl+K), drop gear (crtl+G)
    - hold Z to reduce speed
    - at aprox 180 kmph activate Autohover
    - pitch nose up to reduce speed, check speed, height and flight path vector indicated on HUD
    - hold Z for descent at aprox 2.5 m/s
    - at touchdown toggle autohover off
