I'd like to share a couple of "sketches" I've had a for a little while. These aren't meant to be accurate models or even 100% functional planes, I just wanted a couple of FAC a/c with a lot of rockets to use as "technology demonstrators", so you'll find a lot of bugs and glitches like wings going through things, non-functional damage meshes, etc. I'm not going to actively update them either - if someone wants to do up a couple of proper OV's they can go right ahead and I look forward to it.

The main thing I wanted to do with these planes is demonstrate a neat little trick I figured out concerning weapons - namely, the smoke rockets on these planes actually do stuff:

The FAC loadout will give you smoke rockets that call in friendly airstrikes. Friendly fighter-bombers within 15km will select targets within 200m of your smoke marker. They'll make one pass and they go back to their last waypoint, so you can assess damage. They will target the last smoke you put down, so if you misfire you can adjust. If you lay down smoke where there are no enemy ground units, they won't attack. This lets you act like a real FAC without fiddling around with the comms menu or the un-immersive selector function.

The FO loadout will call in artillery strikes on an area 100m x 100m around the smoke marker. Every smoke marker will generate the strike, so you can call in lots of artillery whenever you want. You'll get a "Splash!" message just before the arty hits so you can watch the show and assess the damage. I think it's a nice balance between the "arty" object, which was a little unimersive, and my L-5 arty platform, which was a little too uber. This way you have to get down in the weeds to mark the targets, but still feel like you've got a vengeful god on speed-dial ;)

Again, I made these mainly for fun. I think the job of the FAC was one of the most interesting and exciting of the airwar in Vietnam and Korea, and I hope my little mod helps give a taste of what their experience might have been like :)

In the QMB, you can not see the plane in the viewing window.
So a problem in the "Plane".
And as I have not much time to control everything ...

They're called "FAC" and "FO" in the loadout selection.
