Thread: Refueling Heavy helicopter

  1. #1

    Refueling Heavy helicopter

    I m trying to start the 'The take down' mission but I need to refuel the heavy helicopter. How do I do this?
    Currently I have tried walking up to the pump inbetween the two pads (Labeled AIR) buts no icon comes up to take an action.

    Thanks

    You need to taxi the heavy a bit closer to the fuel pump - once you are closer the helo should start to refuel.

    Thanks for the quick response. How do I taxi if the Helo wont start as it needs fuel. Is there a special command?

    That's a good point! Instead have you tried repairing the helo from the maintenance bench - I can't remember if this refuels it or not.

    Yes I've tried repairing it and still no fuel.

    Is there a towing tractor there? might be able to use that to pull it closer.

    There are no other vehicles to do this.

    regarding taxiing: first release the wheelbrake (default rctrl+w which is really not optimal so I rebound it to a joystick button) then raise the collective a little. Heli should now start to roll forward.

    I just checked that mission again. It should start you in a position where the helicopter is refuelled. If after the mssion starts, I get out and then get in again, I get the 'refuelling' message.

    Thanks. That worked. How close do I need be to the pump? I pretty close already but still no icon to refuel. Has anyone else
    run into this problem on this mission?
    Thanks
