Just wondering if you could make it possible for the passengers on the little birds to shoot?
I know it wont be hugely accurate but a machine gunner could provide covering fire whilst landing...I often feel like a sitting duck in that thing.
There have been long discussions about this before ArmA came out. There were videos showing shooting from moving vehicles in VBS1 but nothing was released.
The developers would need to implement this, it would be damn cool if they did.
Edit: i really don't see what problem that comment caused. Theres nothing wrong or bad with it, and it was not to mean spam. I just agreed with the post and idea.
I think all about this feature was already talked in the past so a "oh yeah" (kinda of love) is my expression.
I ment: i understand exactly what Maddmatt wrote and i agree. At that time i was close to that new feature as i could. I saw the video on VBS and i loved it. Just wanted to state my apreciation on that feature because i believe it would transform ARMA in a good way and would be so damn nice.
So, will you kick me now?
I don't see the meaning of your post. It just looks like spam to me

What exactly are you referring to with "oh yea"?

Please do add more to your posts except a random comment and a smiley.

As for the original question:
Many features that we see today in ArmA were denied a few times in interviews, but yet we see them in the game functioning (for the most part) as they should. I believe that adding a feature such as this at this point of the games life is going to be wishful thinking.
But who knows, BIS has surprised us more than once, and who knows, maybe we'll see something like this in an expansion pack, if there will be one.
i would welcome that, too. but it should not be limited to the Little Bird; the guys sitting close to the door of the Black Hawk should also be able to take pot shots at targets. and what about the boats?
Well with the multi-gunner position feature present in ArmA, I see no reason why a workaround can't be made allowing all the cargo positions to shoot?
Although this would make ArmA something like "Delta Force - Black Hawk Down", I would welcome the idea.
Noone is forced to shoot down. Although it has to be damn hard to hit a mansized object from 100m while flying with bullets with a diameter of 5 mm, it is simply left to the personal choice.
It will indeed come in handy at some operation and give a good feeling as it is done like this in real life.
So .... conclusion: GIVE IT TO US
edit: By the way.... I just remembered that BAS MH-6 had an MP5 fullauto SMG attached to the co-pilots seat.
And BAS also had this nice "faste harness" option to walk around in the CH47 for example and snipe down.
BIS also was showing super destruction of houses - bricks in walls deleted by tank , hole in wall , not whole building down
but (maliciously) there must be difference between VBS2 and ARMA
also BIS is "learning" on ARMA before they will give full professional VBS
i am angry on them (those buildings were beautifull and were my bigggggg hope to see it working) but i understand them
they have a lot of work and such supplement cost a lot of work while there are serious problems with graphic performance for example or other issues
they don't have time :/
also if you all remember in 2005 ARMA was presented as USSR/USA conlict part 2 (woodland and KLMK) and we get banana republics and ACU regular desert units with USMC vehicles
soldiers to this should be in Marpats, but lets remain silence
i wait for better house destruction (hole after shell in wall) or wounded soldier who not die because of 2 shots in hand or leg (better wounds structure)
ARMA although buggy is very very big effort of time
What evidence is there (apart from supposition) that "BIS
is "learning" on ARMA before they will give full professional
Regarding "sniping" from helicopters. I recall in the film "Black
Hawk Down" Durant's heli "Super Six Four" is ordered into
position (quote) "to provide sniper cover". Did that mean he
was meant to splat any enemy snipers spotted or that
the men on board his heli are meant to "snipe" from the open
doors of his helicopter (or is it just meaningless Hollywood
pap)? I have always assumed the first option (with a large
measure of the third option mixed in).
And the ability to fire from all vehicles, not just helicopters,
would be nice. I reckon that'd be pretty much an essential
part of a portrayal of a 21st century "asymmetric" conflict
(not that ArmA is really all that great at modelling those, of
