MQ-9 does not include Arma3 Radar/IR/Visual profile
Open, NormalPublic


Other drones have radar, visual, and IR profiles that effect AI and equipment ability to detect them (seemingly by dividing true distance by profile coefficient to arrive at perceived distance: a drone with a radar profile of .5 would only show up on 16km radar when it enters 8km range; A drone with a .7 visual profile would be seen by AI at 350m when they would normally see it at 500m).

Some initial testing seems to point to the fact that the MQ-9 is missing these coefficients, limiting its usability.

Tested with CBA_A3, Cup Units, Weapons, Vehicles (Arma dependency recommendation)

Yeah but the MQ-9 is bigger than a Cessna, not small like all the other drones. So stuff would have no problem detecting it.

Ignore last comment, acute reading failiure. The MQ-9 as pointed out by Goopy is a rather sizable aircraft, and is in no way low-observable ("stealthy"). As such it's only reasonable that it'd be rather easy to detect, being bloody large and conspicous.
