Hey, I was wondering if there is a way that you can do artillery barrages? (when you are scouting you can call in fire mission for artillery to shell in a specific area) In Arma because I don't see the point on having artillery in this game.

There is an entire wiki page for this which explains several different ways of doing it:

Also there's a script that does this without any Modules. I couldn't find a link to download so I uploaded it myself, it was created by JimSolo and he released it in this thread:

download link:

To use it:

- download FireSupport.sqf and place it in your mission folder

- create a marker where you would like artillery support, and name it "target1".

- create a trigger and set its activation to Radio Alpha, and set its text to "Call Fire Support"

In the 'On Act.' field for the trigger, insert the following code:

_anyname = ["target1","G_Camel_HE",24] execVM "FireSupport.sqf";

- If you want to change how many rounds are fired, change "24" to the desired number

And that's it :)

To test it out, go in game, get a good view of where you placed the marker, and press 0, 0, 1, to call it from the radio.

Obviously never been on the receiving end of it I guess! :)
