It's very irritating.

If you define the reflector class in cfgvehicle it follows the animation of the turret without problem.
BUT the commander can't operate the searchlight, only the driver can. And there is no way to operate it independantly of vehicle headlights - which is bad because the searlights require more ressources than just headlights and they are giving away position for a long range.

Please fix this

+1 Confirmed with other modded vehicles that utilize searchlights as well.

Hi,

thank you for the feedback.

Could you please give me some example of a vehicle that has a turret searchlight?

Thanks

The Hellcat Helicopter is a vanilla aircraft with search light.

There are modded aircraft that lost this functionality as well from the Medium Utility Helicopters pack http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=28841

Also all RHS tanks

Forgot about the Hellcat (facepalm), thanks for the reminder :)

Confirmed that it's still an issue.
