I've already dealt with the Reaper and it's now in the game with the correct payload which BTW, can be up to 14 Hellfires when you leave the bombs at home. At 615 points, it's not cheap

As for UAV's in general...... I am not loading up the OOB's with every type available. The ones that just look around are "good enough" as a generic "UAV".

EDIT- your link does not work. I tried three time and got "404 Error: File not found" every time

Looks like the link is correct, but the site is broken.
About half the articles are missing, including the entire UAV category.

Fallout Re: The FASTBOAT Patch page.

When you get the 404 ERROR and read the sentence below it click on "Industry Projects" then look for "By Category" section middle of the page, the UAV family is at the bottom of the list. Just did that 3 times and it works. They might be updating articles or maintaining the site not unusual for these guys mostly happens around 1am EST but can happen at other times. Now it appears you can't link to any of the individual "projects" so go back to the bold and you'll just have to be patient. It will come back. And can I now respectfully request that we get back to the purpose of this thread of why it's here and who it's for see Post #1. Thank You!!

Regards,
Pat

Do you mean that it will be included in the next patch?

Yes, that's what " it's now in the game " means

Fallout Re: The FASTBOAT Patch page.

Don,
It's the below ref item to work which will obviously affect the USA as well and will require more research on the USA side though I already possess some info on the AH-64E (The most advanced helo flying.) or the Tank Patch we discussed via PM. Might be able to do both but no promises to meet the deadline you gave me. The ref is from Heli Hub that vetted (The ref.) and reports that Taiwan will get the AH-64E (This is the APACHE Block III for some others who don't follow Helo news.) in OCT. 2013. have seen reports on this already and the crews/ground support are already training here. I have posted news on this in the HELO Thread. The source is good and it would mean the USA is further along then I thought. Point the way and I'll go down the road you want, it doesn't matter to me.

Pat, your source clearly says

Quote:
The U.S. Army took delivery of its first AH-64E only at the end of 2011

Therefore the "AH-64D Apache" in slot 916 is in fact an AH-64E and that has been corrected and one has now been added to the Taiwan OOB.

What I value most in information is accuracy and brevity. Now, if I could find a "one stop shopping" list of autocannon ammo loads for every Attack Helo that uses them I'd be a really happy camper....

Fallout Re: The FASTBOAT Patch page.

Yes I would concur about UNIT 916. I think though the EW rating should at least be 10, it is faster then any APACHE built previous to it and the TI/GSR again from the refs, I believe it will be higher as well. Will post it with the tank items we discussed earlier and you can or not "tweak it" as needed.Quick notes from the refs...
1. First USA Combat Squadron being stood up now in JAN. 2013.
2. Nickname established as the AH-64E APACHE "GUARDIAN" so the
UNIT 915 (And others of the type.) are the last of the "LONGBOW" helos.
3. This is neat, the FCS incorporates two sensors that will pick up small arms fire (Day/or Night) and auto slew (or manual tell the WO.) to engage the target(s).
4. From direct USA refs, during attack trials in an AA environment UNIT 915D suffered loses and none were lost by UNIT 916E.

Taiwan...
1. Is training on their own AH-64E helo(s) (Some say they have 2 now, will have 6 min. by OCT. 2013.)
2. Getting these as a compromise for getting the Blk 50/52 F-16. Will be armed as UNIT 916 but I don't think in the improved version I'm suggesting above except in the speed category. Something to consider.

Off to work.

Regards,
Pat

Default Re: The FASTBOAT Patch page.

Yeah I had already changed the EW and speed to match the spec in that article. TI/GSR stays at 60 for now. We don't need to get too carried away.
