I am trying to complete the Dogs of War mission. But when I try to go into the gear menu, buy units, and choose heli mode, it states NO FACTORIES.
So how do I build whatever is needed to build a helicopter unit?
first of all with which faction are you allied? CDF? NAPA?
from what i understand you cannot buy Helos if you
are allied with Napa.
If you are allied with CDF there are several criterias that have to
be met for you to be able to build helos.
- either the CDF commander is the commander of the operation (= you answered no on whether you wanted to lead the operation or not)
and then you have to wait until he constructs a helifactory (helipad)
- or you decided to be the commander of the operation.
Then you have to wait until you have enough money to build
a helipad and a helicopter.
the entire buy system is very buggy in Dow and if you want to speed up
the buying process. Press "M" (map) key twice to bring up the list.
You can buy choppers as NAPA as well, but you have to wait for a while.
EDIT: I went with NAPA in Badlands, but I always end up with CDF in DoW (no choice). But CDF and NAPA are allied when I play. Maybe that has something to do with it? Anyway, I don't know whether or not you can buy choppers when playing NAPA.
How do you play NAPA in DoW? Going with NAPA without killing that leader guy?

The latest beta patch might help, they've changed the buying interface quite a bit in the patch and it works better for me. I kept getting the 'no factories' but in Badlands instead of DOW, for some reason before I put the patch in, building two factories in the base would work
I have the same problem. I'm NAPA and the AI is commanding, there are 2 air factories...but it still says 'no factories' for aircraft. This really sucks because I need to get to Skaliny (sp) Island for an objective.
