High-altitude Unit Navigated Tactical Imaging Round is a small device with a camera and a parachute. You can shoot it from an underbarrel grenade launcher and it broadcast its picture to you. It's a cheap way to recon around you.
You can use it to recon your area in close or not-too-far range, because this round cannot fly, it's just fall. But it could be very usefull in sort of situations.

This script is not so fancy as original HuntIR grenade in ACE mod. It's just the useful, but poor cousin of ACE's HuntIR.
You can use white flare grenade as HuntIR greande, but before you launch, start the script from your action menu: use HuntIR. Then you can launch the white flare grenade from your GL and a few seconds later, you will get the picture what HuntIR's camera see.
You can control this camera: you can turn it any direction, zoom it and switch to different night visions, like infra red to identify enemy easier. If you find something, you can create markers at you map with NumPad PgDn.
This "grenade" fall slowly, so you have no too much time, before it land.

Installation / Usage:
Put both sqf files into your mission folder's "scripts" folder. If there is no scripts folder in your mission folder, create a new folder and name it "scripts" and copy the two files into it.
Set global variable lck_markercnt to 0 at the init.sqf:
if (isNil "lck_markercnt") then {lck_markercnt=0;};  
And add the script as an action menu to a player who has a underbarrel grenade launcher:
myhuntiraction = player addAction ["use HuntIR", "scripts\myhuntir.sqf", [], 1, false, true, "", "true"];
It's important to name the action to "myhuntiraction".
