[Suggestion] Flare Bombs


So i had many  time s where I've  played on the Public server at night and that extremely hard to play and do anything even with night vision (there aren't enough "Stars"  in the sky so the night vision doesn't work )

In Real life there a thing where planes can drop Flare Bombs like which similar to Mortar usage, but since Mortars are hard to use and not everyone knows how to operate them i would like to suggest Flare Bombs for Planes or ever Helicopters like the apache 
 

I'm not Arma 3 Scripting or mission making expert, but I managed to find that script
attach script to bomb on plane script

Would love to see that being a thing since it can add realism and taste to the gameplay

Is there such a device in use in British service? A cursory Google turns up nothing.

my thinking was (and i forgot to mention ) the bomb will light up on the sky and give better lightning 
but the 60 mm could work too :)

I think they call that "daytime", don't need a mod for that just have to wait a bit :)

Yeah 60mm or 40mm GL should be enough to light up things. If not there is always the option of using a flashlight :P

I think this thread is done/has served it's purpose.

We have currently no plans to implement said idea. Alternatives to brighten up the area are:

  • Use the mortars provided
  • Use UGL-Flares
  • Use Night Vision

Cheers
