The FAC Playground provides a quick mission for fans of the free OV-10A Bronco mod by Split Air.

The player can fly around, identify targets and request an air strike from one of five availabe striker groups, to engage the target.
He can select the type of ordnance that he wants dropped on the target and the amount of ordnance. As an option he can also select a specific attack heading.
After firing his marker rocket, the selected AI bombers will drop the selected ordnance onto the smoke marker.

The mission is based on my FAC Script, which will be released for download separately.

Both the Split Air OV-10A Bronco mod and the community A-4E Skyhawk mod are needed to run this mission.

If the player identified a valid target (AI ground units or a map object), he needs to do the following steps:

•    Open communication menu
•    Sel ect F10 – Other
•    Sel ect “Request strike”
•    Select one of the available strike groups
•    Select the type of ordnance he wants to be dropped on the target. (Currently iron bombs, cluster bombs or rockets can be selected.)
•    Select the amount of ordnance to be dropped. (For bombs: Single, pair, half, all. For Rockets: half, all)

Once these selections are made, the dialogue between FAC and striker will start and the task is set.

The dialogue will now prompt the player to fire a marker rocket at his desired target, which the attackers will engage with the selected options fr om strike menu.

As an option the player can select an attack heading, fr om the F10 – Other -> Strike options menu.

A PDF manual is included.
