Auto Credit Based on EliteArsenals24's Hot Air Balloon

Take out the observation balloon, but be careful of those cables!

  • Throttle for lift (approx.70%) and VTOL up to pay out the cable.
  • AG2 to drop bombs from balloon, camera 2 (don't bomb your base, but use the wind settings to move away from your base).
  • AG3 to start bi-plane (camera 3 or 4 for aiming).

Enjoy

    SpiritusRaptor, because I’m on mobile, the shoot button doesn’t show up because it is disconnected from the blimp, so I scrapped
    the biplane and used your nieuport 11 instead.

    I just scraped the biplane and set the winches to activate with the throttle, you can spawn it as an ai and it will rise into the sky automatically

    Lol, because of how light the balloon is, you can literally just ram into it and the plane will be fine. The balloon on the other hand, will not, which is pretty funny, considering how much bigger the balloon is compared to the Biplane.

    @AerialFighterSnakes The cockpit on the balloon. On PC you can press spacebar to fire, regardless of whether or not the gun is connected to the cockpit. On android iOS or PC the fire button won't pop up if the gun is disconnected

    Tried to do that on mine and it set it as main, so I cannot control the blimp anymore. @SpiritusRaptor

    Ahh. There is a small cockpit just behind the pilots seat - make that active and it should work. If not then change the armed group to ALL. On a PC I just hit the space bar to fire :)
