The only thing I am working on right now is a config mod for an AH6. In my research I found out that the old "glass" in the bird had been upgraded, along with a lot of other things, IRL.

Sources state they have tried to protect the pilots from small arms fire. I tried all kinds of armor values, still experimenting BTW. In the Air.pbo, the only glass value I see defined is HitRGlass and HitLGlass. I was getting zero changes, that I could tell, by modifying those values. So I tried inserting a new class...HitGlass. Made a very noticeable difference. FWIW.
Why do I have to be a Rocket Scientist to make a good mission?

Maybe some things are different when making damage in ArmA, never really did any addon making in OFP.
But here is other question is there any way to make actuall armored glass? SO for example you can't penetrate with small arms, but you could with .50 cal?

Nixer6,

I don't think that armor values on glass have anything to do with actual armor. All it does is it takes more damage for glass to change the texture, nothing to do with how well it will protect the soldiers.

Hi Guys, after reading this topic I decided to put a Glass Damage Tutorial together to help all the other modellers.
