View Full Version : Unmanned Vehicles? UAV or UGV?
Dec 13 2006, 17:51
Is anyone working on making any unmanned aerial vehicles or ground vehicles? (My favorites are:
Dragon Warrior (UAV fly, hover)
Vigilante (UAV, OPFrenchpoint)
Ranger (UAV, from FDFmod 1.3)
I think these are soo cool, and allow a new modern aspect of sensors and intel to the game!

I could only wish. We need deployable UGVs from HUMVEEs too http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/biggrin_o.gif

Indeed that would be nice. I'm not a modder or anything, but I can't think of any way to successfully get something like say a predator to work. I dont think the engine could handle something flying and unmanned nor a fly by remote set up.I'm not sure that the game engine could handle a pilotless vehicle. Maybe trick the game into thinking there is some kind of perma-pilot in there or something. A good thought though, definatly a challenge to mod makers.

There have been several UAVs in OFP that have worked very well...
FDF Mod had a great Ranger UAV and control station that worked very well in OFP. Vigilante and Dragon Warrior as well. The Fennek vehicle also had a hand-launched UAV with a control station.
There were alot and I'm hoping they'll be "translated" to Arma for use there.

There are plenty of uav's comming out for arma atm, (but hey, dont get me wrong, you can never have enough uavs!!!!http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/wink_o.gif, but does anyone know of any ugv's? has anyone started to work on that bomb-disabling robot (cant remember its name) present in vbs2? or howbout the mule?

edit 2: now that I found the name, i found a post for the talon, lol.... and it looks indefinetely postponed http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/sad_o.gif but the mule still stands contested!!! anything else? maybe another talon project hmm?
RKSL has been working on a fixed wing, MP compatible, laser designator turret for the Predator and Tornado e.t.c With a fully functional, mouse controlled, remote turret. A demo video will be ready some time soon. The Talon is also in the works to.
