SUAV Strafer

SUAV Strafer - My sixth helicopter. I released 1-4 and skipped 5 because it is imperfect. Anyway, for those of you who downloaded the SUAV M-390 and liked it, this is an alternative to going is circles forever. This variant of the SUAV is built for strafing (hard mounted weapons with extra firepower). Of course its Semi-Unmanned so you don't have to fly it yourself; you line up targets and unload ordinance. The downside to this is that the entire helicopter body must be facing the target and therefore there is no bullet drop compensation. The controls for this helicopter are much harder to get used to and it uses every available button. Look at the second picture to see all of the controls.
The basics;
Press space to enter 3rd person camera mode. Use WASD and the mouse to aim the sensor. You will notice the helicopter will turn to face the target. From there, all you have to do is fire with left click, R and F.
Once you get the basics;
Toggle ground lock (like the original SUAV M-390) with shift. Right click to toggle target lock mode, which will make the helicopter face the last target you looked at (this is good for moving targets). Hold ALT to pitch the helicopter down and move forward. Scroll down to switch between a hovering altitude of 500 and 2000 above the target. Scroll up to switch zoom levels.

This download looks like an addon. You need to extract the downloaded zip and put the addon folder in your Garry's Mod addons folder. You should end up with a directory structure similar to below:

  • steamapps
    • common
      • garrysmod
        • garrysmod
          • addons
            • SUAV <-- Addon folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc
