How to circle a Seahawk around a driving Carrier?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I want to circle a Seahawk helicopter to circle around a driving carrier (~ 100ft., 0.5-1NM) for a possible rescue of failed catapult starts/aircraft.

 

Do any know, how to build this in the ME?

 

Thanks in advance 🙂

Yep ! done !

I only can do that using script/Mist.

Here a mission exemple (Caucasus/Stennis/CH-53).

The carrier is scripted to patrol indefinitely in its rectangular pattern.

The CH-53 is scripted to take off and orbit around the moving carrier (speed 70 - alt 31meters ASL) - CH-53 "moves a bit" when orbit center is "updated" but works.

When Bingo the CH-53 land on carrier and respawn within 60sec between Cat 1 & 2 for take off and orbit again.

(I set on purpose CH-53 to low fuel state - 35% - just to test the respawn loop so it just do about 5 orbits around the moving carrier before RTB on bingo but you can set fuel to 100%)

This indefinitely.

(see this in F10 map view with very fast forward !)

I just refined the script a bit : orbit center is further away from carrier in front of him (whatever his heading), so the orbits are much better centered on the moving carrier (according to his actual speed), and the route point that makes CH-53 exiting actual orbit to allow a new orbit is right in front of CH-53 (whatever his heading, and no longer a random point), so transitions are smoother between updated orbits.

Cool, thank you very much!

 

Can I also take the SH-60 AI without adapting the script?

As long as you keep the Heli's names (RescueHeli for both group and unit name) and the carrier's names (Carrier for both group and unit name), you can use any helicopter type and any carrier type you want. Because the script is based on these unit and group names.

And also you can set the route you want for carrier with any number of waypoints and speeds you want for the patrol patern, as long as the Patrol script command is kept in the last waypoint's advanced action.
