GOM - Ambient AA

Grumpy Old Man

Gives mission makers access to simple and versatile ambient AA fire.

Takes pre placed vehicles and uses their main guns to engage AA fire at simulated targets for the given duration.
Works fine with static MG turrets (raised) and multiple third party vehicles.
It's also possible to immediately stop the script and free up all units to fire on actual threats.
For the duration of the ambient AA vehicles will check for a clean line of sight, so they don't mindlessly fire into terrain/objects.
If more than half of the assigned vehicles have no line of sight to the simulated target they'll simply pick another one.
You can also add and array of positions (ASL) to make the guns fire at them randomly.

Installation / Usage:
For usage instructions and information of how to use the GOM - Ambient AA please refer to the included documentation and/or example mission.
