Heard couple times about trick to make a buildable cargo plane with dummy weapon, that can be occupied by players infantry, and upon attacking smth plane will "shoot out" its passengers. Main criteria for this to work, as i heard, was fly locomotor and plane be added in [AircraftTypes].

Made couple experiments trying to give same shoot-paradrop ability to so to say helicopter-transport, that obviously has jumpjet locomotor, SpeedType=Hover, MovementZone=Fly, and Landable=yes, so can land anywhere.
Didn't find any way make it working, and just thought - is it possible at all?

You're talking about a flying Battle Fortress?

No, just about a way to allow simple helicopter transport, that is not plane and usually lands to deploy infantry, to paradrop it via mentioned weapon trick(if it's possible).

Only Aircraft ejects its passengers when attacking, which is a hard-coded behaviour. You can't make a heli (which I assume you made as Vehicle by copying night hawk or hind) do that.

Yeap, i used code of other heli as didn't want the transport to be tied to airport. Thank you for clarification, now i know for sure that trick works only one way.
