I have spent the last 2 days making a mission, essentially in which your squad moves around the map completing objectives. during this mission you are also supported by a helicopter with a sniper team in it. so far this works pretty well (except my snipers are Chuck Norris and Jason Statham and seem to not have problems killing enemies from 700m out while travelling at 200kmph) and looks awesome. I was thinking though, i want to have areas in the mission where your squad will get into serious bother (maybe becoming pinned down by an Overpowered MG nest) and i would like to be able to order the snipers to attack the MG. I was thinking maybe a script that takes the enemy that you are looking at and passes it to the snipers group leader who then gives the typical "attack this enemy" command to his squad. The problem is the usual support strikes don't seem to work this way and tend to either work via dropping a suppressive barrage on a Grid Reference or by laser designation. Although this seems like quite a simple idea to me, i really don't have a clue where to start with this or whether it is even possible with the Arma 3 Engine.

Any Help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance. :)
