|«|| The MQ-4A Greyhawk is a combat ready unmanned aerial vehicle. It's based on a U.S. design proven by the MQ-9 with a turbo-propeller engine. It carries a modernized tracking and tracing equipment and improved camouflage. OPFOR engineers and manufacturers were able to perfect construction, but their engines are less fuel effective. The OPFOR drone is labeled K40 Ababil-3. Both sides arm the drone with air-to ground Scalpel missiles or laser guided bombs (CAS version).|
Design EditThe Greyhawk is a medium-altitude, long-endurance aerial drone that can serve a variety of roles from surveillance to ground attack, and even air-to-air combat.
It has two pylons in total with one on each wing (1-2) that support dynamic loadouts. Each pylon can be fitted with any of the following:
- Falchion-22 (1×)
- ASRAAM (1×)
- Scalpel (1×)
- Scalpel (3×)
- Shrieker HE (7×)
- Shrieker AP (7×)
- DAR (12×)
- DAGR (12×)
- GBU-12 (1×)
- Mk-82 (1×)
It also has an integrated laser designator that can either be used to guide some of its own weapons, such as rockets fired from the DAGR and GBU-12 precision bombs, or be utilised to mark targets for other aircraft.
- MQ4A Greyhawk / K40 Ababil-3: Baseline variant that is loaded with two racks (total of six) of air-to-ground Skalpel missiles. It supports dynamic loadouts and can be changed to load other types of munitions.
- MQ4A Greyhawk (CAS) / K40 Ababil-3 (CAS): Similar to the baseline variant, this version also supports dynamic loadouts but is otherwise armed with twin GBU-12 laser guided bombs by default instead.
All faction variants have access to the same camouflage options:
- Blue: Two-tone pattern-less scheme that combines medium blue and gunship grey paint colours.
- Grey Hex: Light/dark grey cell pattern camouflage.
- Digital Grey: Digitised semi-fractal camouflage pattern used by several AAF aircraft and boats.
It should be noted that all of the patterns are not meant to help camouflage the Greyhawk/Ababil-3 into the ground from the air, but rather to blend it into the sky from the ground.
The Greyhawk has an array of sensors designed to allow it operate in ground attack missions:
Active Radar Edit
The Greyhawk does not have an active radar as it does not utilise any radar guided munitions.
Infrared Search and Track/Visual Sensor Edit
IRST and visual sensors both have a maximum range of 3 km for aerial targets and 2.5 km against ground targets.
Both sensors have a minimum operating range of 500 m and an azimuth/elevation coverage of 51 and 37 degrees, respectively. Target identity recognition locks in as soon as a target gets within 2 km range.
Radar Warning Receiver/Passive Radar Edit
The RWR has a 360 degree detection radius and a target recognition range of 12 km.
Laser Spot Tracker Edit
Laser markers and infrared strobes can be tracked within a range of 6 km. It has an acquisition cone of 180 degrees.
- As stated in the Field Manual, the Greyhawk's design is inspired by the real-life "MQ-9 Reaper" UCAV designed by General Atomics.
- However in contrast to the MQ-9, it uses forward mounted and rear-swept canard wings reminiscent of Boeing's "X-50 Dragonfly". The X-50 was a cancelled prototype UAV that also used the same wing configuration as the Greyhawk, albeit on a much more smaller sized airframe.
