4.268: M113G3-DK-TOW Not Reloading [FIXED]

M113G3-DK-TOW

 

When given an ENGAGE route, it will not stop to reload. Instead, the vehicle will stop to engage, then continue without reloading. It will only reload when it reaches its final waypoint or encounters another enemy vehicle to engage....usually too late. 

 

I have not tested this against all TOW vehicles, but the correct behavior on an ENGAGE route for this type of vehicle would be to stop-engage-reload- THEN continue.

While we're talking about this, does that vehicle currently have the capability to reload things on the move?

I know our typical Steel Beasts vehicles can't reload from ready racks unless sitting still, but I think for a few things we might consider changing that behavior?

 

For example I might expect the TOW gunner to try reloading while on the move, but for that to naturally take much, MUCH longer than stationary, since he would be getting bounced around, maybe have to duck under tree branches, might even drop the new missile and have to pick it up and start again, etc etc etc, but you'd think in a real life or death situation he might try doing it?

Well the missile weights about 47lb (say 24Kg) so its not easy to just pick up and load whilst moving.

 

In a real life or death situation I'd expect the vehicle to stop and/or hide (and conduct the relaod then), given it needs to be static to fire anyway.
