Not sure if anyone knows as I've not seen it mentioned but the simple support module does work for artillery strikes and mortar strikes.

Just have the Simple support module and the functions module on the map.

Then as the player just press 0 then 8 and you will get the options:-

1. Cancel Supports
2. Request Ammo Drop
3. Request Units
4. Request Airstrike
5. Request Mortar Support
6. Request Artillary Support

The 1st 4 options dont work, but the last 2 do.  A green square appears as your cross hairs just point that at where
you want the strike and wait about 30 seconds. Its a bit crude but the effect is quite devastating.

Yea, I've played with it.  I just thought it made things too easy. Maybe IFR can add the posted script released on this forum to fit the options 2-4.

Ya good discovery, I hadn't realy looked at the modules.
Im sure someone can release scripts for options 2, and 4.

But the Ammo drop exists...the script is on this forum...now if it was in a truck which left a crate!
Oksman put a video for Arma (the link is also on this forum)which had a downloadable option for IF for artillery..which only fired ONCE.So you have to choose your options carefully.Maybe that would solve Santa Six's problem! I do like artillery though...

I have stopped using that module.
Simply - OVERKILL !
In my opinion the barrage is too intense.
In open terrain troops are wiped out with one click.
