Developed by Thales Group, the STARStreak High Velocity Missile is designed to provide close air defence against conventional air threats such as fixed wing fighters and late unmasking helicopter targets.
Thales has addressed the needs of military users around the world and introduced major improvements to provide increased range beyond 7 km, increased coverage and altitude and improved guidance precision against small targets.
The STARStreak configuration is based on the proven principles of high velocity to defeat targets with short unmasking times. The three dart payload maximises levels of lethality and accurate line of sight; laser beam riding guidance enables engagement of the smallest signature targets, which are extremely difficult to defeat and lock onto by traditional fire and forget missiles. The STARStreak missile is capable of being launched from lightweight land, sea and air platforms, from either automatic fire control systems such as the RAPIDRanger or the STARStreak Lightweight Multiple Launcher, Next Generation (LML NG). STARStreak can therefore be deployed quickly into operations and is easy to integrate into a force structure.
Lawman's STARStreak mod for Arma 3 currently includes only the man-portable system; an unguided munition with no locking or automatic tracking.
This system is available in four colour schemes for use in a wide variety of environments.
To install STARStreak HVM 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.
While much time and effort has been put into comprehensive modelling and performance, there is always more that could be done.
I'm taking a break from this project for an indeterminate amount of time while real-world things take over, but here are some future developments I am aware of and may one day get around to implementing:
- Custom hand animation
- Custom reload animation
- Method for single-shot LTAs, ability to dettach CLU and attach to new LTA
- Improved fine-details on textures
