1) Naval Gunnery Targets aka Killer Tomato
These are 4m inflatable cubes typically used for small arms and crew served weapons practice from Warships. Designed to slowly deflate once hit to allow a decent training time period they will take multiple hits from largish caliber round before deflating. For the purposes of the game we have made these both IR and Radar emitters. They also present an easily lockable visual target. We've been using these to test new aircraft and weapons for a while now.
They come in three colours: Orange, Blue and Green.
2) Gunnery Banner Target
A 6m x 1m cloth banner target designed to be used to test a Pilot's skills with aircraft guns, but can also be used for tanks and missiles if desired.
It's up you how you use them but In our gaming groups we usually have a scripted training mission which records the hits. And can reset the banner once destroyed. An example mission may follow at a later date.
3) The Famous RKSL Ducks
Who doesn't love a Rubber Duck? Born from an April Fools joke, the rubber duck has become a bit of a running theme in RKSL addons and our affiliated gaming groups.
We've added them because, well why not? It's a bit of a laugh really. We've been pranking each other with them for a while. Dropping them on each other, hiding them in missions, generally Ducking around. And we guarentee your kids will love them. Oh and they act just like the Killer Tomatoes when shot at.
The Ducks come in 4 sizes.
- Large ~8m wide.
- Medium ~4m wide.
- Small ~2m wide.
- Very Small ~1 wide.
And because WLD427 mentioned that his daughter had a (rubber) Swan we present: April's Swan. A bit like a duck, the same basic functions, but 'prettier'.
NOTE: In theory these are Slingloadable. Reality is that due to the odd nature of ArmA3 PhysX once in the water they are stuck like glue.
4) Project UKF Lilt Can.
A nod to our old friends of the OFP/ArmA1 and ArmA2 Project-UKF Mod team from days gone past. We added their 'trademark' Lilt Can to the game to mark some fond memories.
The can is 2,2m tall, can be sling loaded, lobbed, rolled and generally hurled around to create mischief and chaos. Why? Well, much like the ducks, because we can. And it's a bit of a laugh really. It started out as way to test the physX and just got silly. Just like so many easter eggs.
5) 500 Gallon (2275 Litre) Flexible Fuel Tank.
Arguably the most useful object in the pack at the first release this is a silingloadable fuel tank. It weighs 2275kg so most helicopters could lift it allowing you to bring fuel to your Forward operating bases.
A word of warning, these things do roll so you need some skill to deliver them safely and some chocks to prevent them rolling around your compound and taking out your team.
The second version of this is the double pack. This is obviously two blivets strapped together. And obviously holds twice the fuel or the single.
But it weighs twice as much, which means you need a heavy lift helicopter to lift it. The added bonus is that it won't roll away on you and squish your men.

A WORD ABOUT REALISM AND A SENSE OF HUMOUR
We strive to make all our addons as realistic as the game engine and our own capabilities allow. Ok so giant rubber ducks aren't that realistic but this pack is a very small start on what promises to be a fairly large prop pack eventually.
Take that for what its worth. Enjoy the addons or don't. Just try and have some fun with it.
It has always been a basic tenant of RKSL Studios design philosophy not to negatively affect other community made content. We do not replace core values or modify anything that will affect the function or experience of others.
We are happy to discuss optional compatibility patches, but will not exclusively adapt our addons to anyone else's Mod standards.
All RKSL Content is tested against the currently available stable build of the Vanilla game and official expansions.
