ADDON : Kiowa Warrior made BIS for OFP and converted by Southy
Version : Arma2 Beta v1.0

Release Date : 17/07/2009

This is a beta release, you will find bugs the object of this release is to find as many as possible and get them fixed, I'll probably release one more beta before relasing a signed version.




======================
REQUIRED ADDONS:
======================

None,

======================
DESCRIPTION :
======================

Conversion the the standard BIS Kiowa Warrior from Flashpoint to Arma and now to Arma2

OH-58 Kiowa is a family of single-engine, single-rotor, military helicopters used for observation, utility,
and direct fire support. Bell Helicopter originally manufactured the OH-58 for the United States Army, based on the
206A JetRanger helicopter. The Kiowa has been in continuous use by the U.S. Army since 1969. The latest model,
the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior, is primarily operated in an armed reconnaissance role in support of ground troops.



==============================
CONTENT/FEATURES/CHANGES/BUGS :
==============================

Fully functioning cockpit with dials etc.

All versions will have the Mast Mounted Sight, operated by the gunner, primary use is for laser designation/spotting.
Zoom is approx 1.5 longer than cobra.

Weapon loadouts:

2 x Hellfire, 1 x XM296 .50 Cal. (12.7-mm) machine gun
2 x hellfire, 7 rnds FFAR
7 rnds FFAR, 1 x XM296 .50 Cal. (12.7-mm) machine gun
7 rnds FFAr, 7 rnds FFAR
2 x Hellfire, 2 x Stinger

Bonus 2 x Aussie camo versions
2 x Hellfire, 1 x XM296 .50 Cal. (12.7-mm) machine gun
1 version unarmed


Special notes: hellfires can laser lock so two Kiowa's working in pink teams can fire Hellfires at fixed targets
like buidlings etc. The first version, 2 x hellfire, 1 x M296 can self lock laser hellfires, first select the laser
and ping the target, second use guns to lock target, second select hellfire and fire away,
this is the only version that can self lock the hellfires.

I'm looking to change the gunner optics view to something like the UAV's a much better FLIR than the Cobra's I'm using, thats for the next release.


==============================
CHANGELOG/BUGS/KNOWN ISSUES:
==============================

Version Beta v1.0 - 17/07/2009

First release.

Known issues:

The Eyball isn't the correct shape.

The Stinger version, fires the missiles from the hellfire side.

When in the turret view the gunner can use the cannon like the Cobra except it can fire in 360 degrees
(AI gunners will also use the 50.cal gun like a normal turret weapon)







======================
CLASSNAMES :
======================

Base class:

Kiowa - FFAR/Hellfires
OH58b - Hellfire/50.Cal
OH58c - FFAR/50. Cal
OH58d - FFAR
OH58e - Hellfires/Stingers
OH58f - Hellfire/50.Cal (aussie camo)
OH58g - no weapons (aussie camo) - Aussie Camo Textures thanx to MitchArma


Found under Bluefor > Air > US ARMY





======================
INSTALLATION :
======================

The PBO and Sign files in the archive need to be extracted into your ArmA/Addons folder.
However the mod folder method is the better solution.

This is awesome. I was just thinking about these the other day, how bad ass it would be to have a Kiowa in ARMA II. Nice work it looks great. Can this be added to ACE2 Warfare?

ACE2 are working on there own Kiowa addon.

I've not tested this addon with ACE2 and have no plans to adjust to to a fit this mod.

and another beta to keep the masses happy :)

here we go beta V2.5

massive changes since last release

thanks to Siltman/Gustave for the new Mast Mounted Sight and Optics
modEmMaik for the revised GEO LOD (that makes the helicopters handle etc)
SGT Savage and Anzac Steve for total reworking of the sounds/weapons upto Arma2 Standard 9You have to hear this thing now)
update of the Xm295 50.cal - credits to Alloisi (Marco) for the model

A big effort by a few people to drag this addon further along.

I also have big plans for the next release, at the moment the addon will split in two, one will be 100% ACE to make use of the ACE systems/weapons the other not dependent on anything.





Download Beta V2.5 here

Have fun

Southy

Ok a little late but as promised here is the Kiowa for ACE only, this addon will not work if you are not running ACE.

It uses for the most part ACE weapons and fire and control systems, all thanks to Stiltman for the config work.

Treat this as an alpha version, it's missing the sounds and other adjustments from the standard addon.

Requires ACE Mod to work

Have fun

Southy
