This is a tweak of [Dust]Sabre's Pilatus PC-7 aircraft from his Military Aviation Pack that I've been using to learn how to mess with configs, and because I really like flying light ISR aircraft in A3 of which there are very few. I've made the following config changes to Sabre's PC-7 and split my version out into it's own classnames:
Added compatibility with FIR AWS, both in pylon loadout options and I-TGT/FCS
Added rudimentary targeting camera system for pilot, for limited self-designation ability with a pylon mounted laser designator
Added NATO/CSAT/AAF versions, each with their own textures
To install Pilatus PC-7 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.
Targeting camera origin point is up inside the wing, if I can find a better memory point for it or figure out how to shift the reference to the mempoint I will, but it seems to work just fine
Targeting camera doesn't work for backseater/WSO. I don't know why, but I'll add it as soon as I figure it out
Some weapons seem to mount slightly forward on the pylon. It's a visual thing only, and it's usually only very noticeable if you're looking for it
This version should be entirely standalone from Sabre's PC-7 and shows up as "Pilatus PC-7" whereas Sabre's is "PC-7".

Thanks to [Dust]Sabre for helping me out some with figuring out how things work, and for making the plane itself in the first place.
