Default Reaper/Predator drone attack

I have been experimenting with using drones to attack ground targets and I am unable to get either the MQ9 or the Predator to fire their weapons. Any assistance is appreciated, also please forgive if this has been asked and answered.

I think they need a really long straight run at the target

Here is a quick mission showing both at work. Attack altitude and speed might be your problem.

Excellent information here sir, I have combined this with the JTAC AutoLase to direct the Reaper to attack ( limited weapons in this case so as to leave targets for me! ) then once out of ammo it will orbit the target area and lase and smoke as normal with the AutoLase script. Salute for putting me on the right track!
