NFE Barrel Bombs


War is expensive: from laser-guided missiles to large-yield bombs, getting things done can be hard on your pocket. When funds start going low and budget cuts roll in, that's when warfare becomes about improvising and being creative.

This mod is an ACE3 extension that brings Barrel Bombs into the game. Customize the payload according to your strategic needs, load it into a helicopter, and drop away!

Now available in:
German by nic547[]
Italian by Sgt. Dornan

To install ACE Barrel Bombs 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.

How to use (instructions included in the pictures)

In the editor, search for and place [ACE] Barrel Bomb Dispenser (Large) in your mission.
ACE Interact with the dispenser, and Prepare a Barrel Bomb.
You may now select between the types of fuse (Air-burst or Impact detonation), and the strength of the payload, or how many cluster munitions will be included in the barrel.
If your dispenser has enough materials remaining, hit CONFIRM. As soon as you're done, a new barrel will appear, ready to be loaded.
>>>> You may also inspect any barrels and read their label in order to confirm their properties.
Carry the barrel to the desired Helicopter, then Prime and load it.
>>>> Keep in mind that vehicles only have a limited amount of barrels that can be loaded - all barrels take up the same space.
From the Helicopter - as either the pilot, copilot, or turret-gunners - ACE Interact with the vehicle and Check loaded Barrel bombs.
Select the desired barrel and simply hit the confirmation button.

WARNING: Air-burst timers shorter than 3 seconds may end up damaging your aircraft.

BromA, for being the coolest autistic badasses around the block.
McGabe and Wronglets for encouragement and helping me test this thing.
The ACE3 Team for keeping their mod the way all mods should be: open-source and extendable by the community. Cheers, fellas.
And of course, Bashar Al-Assad, for re-popularizing this absolutely reprehensible, but still very amusing type of ordinance. Happy belated birthday!

License / Disclaimer:
This mod has absolutely no license whatsoever. Steal it, repack it, rename it, stretch it, twist it, lick it or suck it, it's your problem, I really don't care. Actually if this mod ends up being used by Syrian or any guerilla forces to improve their accuracy, someone please let me know so I can tell all my friends and family about it.
However, If you do plan on improving it it, this mod is stringtabled and can be translated, so that and any other contributions are better off done at Github[].

Fixed base class as it was apparently causing an interaction bug inside helicopters.
Dispensers now have a property for a specific barrel, so it's now possible to add dispensers that give you different barrels.
You can now spawn dispensers with Zeus.
Added some safe distance between the helicopter and the barrel, as some vehicles like Little Birds were a bit too - close and would sometimes be damaged.
The mod is now available in German! Huge thanks to @nic547 .

This is it! Your war-crime adventures begin now.
