Project - Future Vertical Lift


The FVL Mod is a tilt-rotor based on the Bell V-280 Valor. For the game we have called the aircraft the UV-85 "Omaha". There are five variants in the game. The UV-85 basic has no weapons, UV-85 with mini-guns, UV-85 with .50 cal Gatlin gun, MV-85 (Spec Ops) with 2x mini-gun, a 20mm cannon, 14 rockets, 2x Griffin missile (mini-Hellfire), and the AV-85 (attack) that has same as MV-85, but trades the troop seats for missile launchers with room for 8x ATGM or an assortment of other guided or unguided weapons.

To install Project - Future Vertical Lift 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.

I would highly recommend VTOL/FLAPS controls mod by Feint. It makes all of the VTOL in Arma much easier to fly.

The Mod Team is releasing the FVL Mod in its current form due to time constraints. The developers have run up against the old enemy called real life. While we think the mod is really in a Beta state we are releasing it so that the Arma community can enjoy it. The development team will, when time permits try to work some of the outstanding issues.
