    RKSL Studios presents the Official Port of our Puma HC1. NOTE:  I'm not entirely happy with this release but im getting pretty frustrated with custom animations.  So much so i need a break from it, lest it get binned.  So I'm releasing it as a BETA and taking a little break from the project to work on fixes for the Foxhound and some other things. The Puma HC1 first entered service in 1971, and the RAF currently has a fleet of 34 aircraft available to the front-line Support Helicopter Force. The aircraft are operated by Nos 33 and 230 Squadrons, both based at RAF Benson. The combined Puma Force is separated into 5 operational flights and an operational conversion flight, which offers flexibility in its role with both desert warfare and arctic warfare specialist equipment available for fitting to the aircraft.

FULL DOCUMENTATION: Puma HC1 v3.090 ADDON FEATURES RKSL Dynamic Rotor System Sling Load Camera Countermeasures Sling loading upto 3000kg Custom Advanced Flight model Multiple paint schemes. Flat NATO Green 90's Two Tone Green 90's Two Tone Snow 70/80's Three Tone Green and Grey (Northern Ireland Scheme) Tiger Meet 2005 United Nations White Desert Pink '90/91 Fictional Dark Tiger Fictional Royal Navy Coastal Scheme A bit of history and current status. This model was first made in 2008.  And bar a few tweaks and fixes hasn't really changed too much.  The UV mapping and poly count were designed for the ArmA1 game engine. ArmA3 is far more capable and flexible than anything we had back then.  Which means that this particular model is not going to be developed any further. I will continue to support the release until the new models for the HC2 and AS330 Series helos comes online. Planned Future Features 100% new model. HC2 varient including: Full glass cockpit Increased power to simulate the Turbomeca Makila engines, new gearboxes and tail rotors FINDING THE ADDON IN THE EDITOR You can find the Puma under: BLUFOR UK Armed Forces Helicopters Puma HC1 FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS Things you need to know if you intend on flying the Puma to its limits.. Speed and Limits: Vne = 257kph - Velocity Never Exceed.  This is the absolute max safe speed of the aircraft.  Going faster than this may result in damage to the airframe or loss of control. Notes: The Puma HC1 has a very high centre of gravity. Be careful when: taxiing during rolling landings. max safe speed for rolling landing is 75kph Watch for loss of lift when making sharp braking turns. In AFM Try not to use too much rudder about 160kph. Similarly, be careful about pulling up rapidly and over torquing the main rotor. 
      A Word About Realism We strive to make all our addons as realistic as the game engine and our own capabilities allow.  This means that real world speeds and capabilities are simulated where possible.  Compromises have and will be made where necessary but we will not downscale or completely cripple an aircraft, system or weapon to fit into the limited spaces some ArmA maps provide. We genuinely believe that the manual operation of aircraft is a skill that should be interesting and fun.  Not every aircraft flies the same nor do they have the same capabilities. If you can't learn and adapt to change then stick with the vanilla equipment. The Puma has been designed from the ground up to use the Advanced Flight Model.  A lot of effort has gone into developing it, give it a try.  Its pretty forgiving and damage tolerant.  Take the time to learn it and you won't be disappointed.   COMMUNITY COMPATIBILITY It has always been a basic tenant of RKSL Studios design philosophy not to negatively affect other community made content.  We do not replace core values or modify anything that will affect the function or experience of others. We are happy to discuss optional compatibility patches, but will not exclusively adapt our addons to anyone elses Mod standards.  All RKSL Content is tested against the currently available stable build of the Vanilla game and official expansions.   HISTORY Only milestones are mentioned.

  • foxhound RKSL Foxhound LPPV for A3 By Rock

    RKSL Studios presents the Official Port of our Foxhound LPPV. The Ocelot Foxhound LPPV was specifically designed to meet the UK MoD’s £200m LPPV programme requirements and replace the Snatch Land Rovers in use with the army. The Snatch Land Rovers have been criticised for their inability to provide protection against IEDs and roadside bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan. The LPPV programme’s objective was to have 400 light protected patrol vehicles production ready by 2010. The UK MoD purchased two Ocelot Foxhound vehicles for testing in April 2010. The invitation to tender (ITT) was issued in May 2010. In September 2010, the Ocelot Foxhound LPPV was selected under the programme against the contender Supacat and NP Aerospace consortium’s SPV400. An initial £180m order for 200 Ocelot Foxhound vehicles was made through urgent operational requirements (UOR) process in November 2010 In December 2011 a further 100 Ocelot Foxhounds were ordered as part of a £400m package of protected vehicles and Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) technology for British Forces in Afghanistan. The contract was finalised in June 2012. The UK MoD also plans to acquire additional 25 vehicles at a cost of £30m. ArmA2 to ArmA3 This is an improved port of the original A2 release into the A3 game engine.  The model itself is largely unchanged with some minor edits to add features and fix some old material bugs.  This version also supports some of the newer A3 features such as texture customisation.   You may: DISTRIBUTION: You may distribute the original .PBO files within this download freely, so long as the PBO files are unmodified and the Readme and EULA files are included.

FULL DOCUMENTATION: Foxhound LPPV v3.100 ADDON FEATURES MRAP capability 2x GPMG Thermal Imaging all around Cameras Thermal Image Reversing Camera Turn In/Turn Out on the turrets 3x Skin Desert Tan NATO Green United Nations A Word About Realism We strive to make all our addons as realistic as the game engine and our own capabilities allow.  This means that real world speeds and capabilities are simulated where possible.  Compromises have and will be made where necessary but we will not downscale or completely cripple an aircraft, system or weapon to fit into the limited spaces some ArmA maps provide.  GPMG Iron sights - When I asked an RAF Regiment Gunner (that spent 3 tours on the Foxhound) how easy was it to use the iron sights on the Foxhound he replied, "Nearly impossible, the pivot system doesn't let you in most angles unless you are very tall and can twist yourself in knots."  When I asked him how he aimed he replied, "Thats what tracers are for".   Engine Power - The current engine/physx setup approximates the real world power.  ArmA simply cannot simulate the range of the real world gearbox.  Simply put these are not as fast as the vanilla ArmA MRAPS but they are easier to use at patrol speeds.

    RKSL Studios presents the WK450 Watchkeeper 450 Remotely Piloted Air System. The Watchkeeper WK450 is a Remotely Piloted Air System (RPAS) for all weather, intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) use by the British Army.  It has a mass of 450 kg, a typical endurance of 17 hours, a payload capacity of 150 kg and uses a rotary Wankel engine. It can operate up to 150 km from the Ground Control Station (although multiple stations can be linked to extend the range). It was originally intended to enter service in June 2010, but years of delays, technical issues, hardware modifications, difficulties in training sufficient pilots and incidents means that it is not expected to be fully operational until late 2017.   You may: DISTRIBUTION: You may distribute the original .PBO files within this download freely, so long as the PBO files are unmodified and the Readme and EULA files are included.
