"commandArtilleryFire" and "doArtilleryFire" do not work for mk6 mortar
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The ai will not fire 3 rounds.

The mortar gunner doesn't fire 3 rounds with the commands, he fires only 1 round:

  • mortargunner doArtilleryFire [getMarkerPos "marker1","8Rnd_82mm_Mo_shells",3];
  • mortargunner commandArtilleryFire [getMarkerPos "marker1","8Rnd_82mm_Mo_shells",3];

The gunner of the m4 scorcher fires 3 rounds with the commands:

  • gunner155 doArtilleryFire [getMarkerPos "marker2","32Rnd_155mm_Mo_shells",3];
  • gunner155 commandArtilleryFire [getMarkerPos "marker2","32Rnd_155mm_Mo_shells",3];

That happens since version 1.66.

I did the tests with vanilla arma 3 (no mods) version 1.66 139494

Confirmed - All mortar units fire only one single round! ...while SPGs are still fine.

I noticed this as well. Mortars will only fire one round and report fire mission complete no matter how many shells you request.

I can confirm this issue. As a result, the artillery fire module does not work properly for mortars in Ares Mod - Achilles Expansion (see Github).
Note that the current category "Firing from Vehicles" is not appropriate and should be changed.
In addition, the title is also misleading as the command just does not work properly for multiple rounds.

I can confirm as well.
Same problem with RHS M252 (USAF) and 2b14 mortars (AFRF)
