A50 (Russian AWACS) for CUP
Completing work that Citizenship started. When he donated his source files I decided to finish of the A-50 (Russian AWACS).
Features a "basic" discovery script that the pilot can run 1x per minute, and it does a "reveal" of enemy targets on the map. Those targets will disappear immediately if they are outside of your view distance! This is a BIS thing. So as the AWACS operator, you'll have to mark the maps for your colleagues in the MP map global channel.
Otherwise it is eye candy... it is really just something for my EF2000 and Fuller's USAF planes to shoot at.
To be honest, the fact that an enemy AWACS target is available is the main (only) reason I built this. Making the interior work, or adding "working" cargo slots, etc. isn't on my "radar" (pun intended!) to add in the future. But the source files are here (cough, cough)... so consider this "Version 1" so if there is any issue it has yet to be discovered.
To install the A50 (Russian AWACS) for CUP you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page
for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
The source files from Citizenship are also here... since he released them to the world, it only makes sense that I should do the same with my updated files.
