A small update today as we begin working on the HUD for the Javelin missile system. The missile is currently being launched from the LAW as we are re-modelling the Javelin to bring it up to standard with the rest of the mod. This video details the "Top" attack mode and should be considered a work in progress.

very good so far lol. make sure when you do it, the launcher looks upward at an angle. its unrealistic how when you're aiming horizontal the rocket goes up at an angle.

This is a feature of the Javelin missile system, I assume - the missile launches up to gain height and then downwards on top of the target.

Very good work on the hud and I like the addition of the grass moving when the missile is launched! Very nice!

Well done.

Thanks guys, yes the proper Javelin model will fire at a slight angle as in real-life. Also as in real-life it will feature the "Direct" attack mode as well as "Top" attack.

Javelin are sweet launchers, very large and heavy, but very functional when it comes to destroying armor. Your animation and HUD look nice, but I wondered, if it would be possible to also add a missile cam option to the Javelin, either to make it manoueverable manually, or just to let you watch your missile fly and hit the target.

Hi SinKing, Thanks for your comment, Its not something I have personally thought of doing as it is a code only job, but we will definitely consider that once we have a new programmer on the team.
