5.4.17 Request MEDEVAC/CASEVAC

If a MEDEVAC/CASEVAC editor object has been placed in a mission (see MEDEVAC/CASEVAC) then it is possible for group leaders to call the MEDEVAC/CASEVAC via the action menu.

Note: You must be the leader of the group in order to see and use the MEDEVAC action.

You will need to complete the standard 9 line form to request the MEDEVAC/CASEVAC. If there are any errors in the form, they will be shown during broadcast and you are offered an option to correct them.

A human controlled unit is currently not supported by the MEDEVAC system. Attempts to get in will result in the player unit being kicked out of the transportation. An Admin using "Switch to unit" to switch the player unit with an AI unit in the transportation will result in the player being kicked off the helicopter or ejected once in flight with unfortunate side effects.
