Mod Support: Vanilla planes taxiing on buildings
New, NormalPublic


On the Nimitz mod the vanilla planes explode when taxiing. Modded planes like the F/A-18 which use simulation airplane and a specialised damper configuration do not suffer from that fate.

Support for vanilla planes on the carrier would be a great feature.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Download the Nimitz mod for example from or or from steam
  2. Load arma3 with the Nimitz mod
  3. Open virtual reality, place the Nimitz (West, Boats, Nimitz) and any plane on it
  4. Taxi the plane over the flight deck
  5. Actual result: The plane explodes
  6. Expected result: The plane taxis without damage
Additional Information

Depending on the arma patch version the taxing worked at times and at others it leads to explosions after 10 meters or so.

(I figured I should give it yet another test)
I can confirm that issue with all three vanilla planes!

It seems that vanilla aircraft can also not take off from the bridges in Tanoa.
