Currently only adds a CAS 9-liner as a "kneeboard", that can be accessed using the action menu. The addon used to include weapon tab data pages for vanilla weapons, but is being migrated/tested for use with FIR weapons for now.
To install MIL Kneeboard 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.
- Run this command on any client that is to have access to the kneeboard (ideally in initPlayerLocal.sqf or onPlayerRespawn.sqf if using respawns):
nul =  spawn MIL_fnc_Kneeboard_AddAction;
- Additionally, the player's ability to access the kneeboard action is controlled by a variable, which can be changed mid-mission to add/remove access. Again, in initPlayerLocal.sqf or onPlayerRespawn.sqf set a variable on the player:
player setVariable ["MIL_Role","Pilot"];
player setVariable ["MIL_Role","JTAC"];
It should be noted that a player with MIL_Role as "Pilot" can only bring up the kneeboard when in an aircraft, whereas a "JTAC" can use it anywhere. The 9-liner includes some descriptions and tooltips to assist with it's use.
- When an editable text box is active and the 9-liner map is open, double-left clicking the mouse on the map will place a marker with the corresponding info on the map (the markers here show up small, but on the standard in-game map are full sized - might get around to fixing it in the future).
- Shift + right clicking the mouse on the map will delete the closest marker to the cursor.
It is recommended to use some form of auto-pilot mod when opening the kneeboard, as ArmA enforces it's own "auto-pilot" when dialogs are opened.

Feedback is welcome. I was never any kind of air controller or a pilot, but managed to put my experience in other areas together with some online references to get this up, so I'm happy to be corrected.
