Propaganda leaflets are a new feature introduced in Arma 3 Laws of War DLC (Arma 3 logo black.png1.76)

A drone dropping leaflets

Mission Usage

Leaflets are a special weapon which can be fired both by a player or AI.

To add leaflets to an Utility Drone, use pylons settings in Eden Editor:

a3 orange leaflets pylons.jpg

Alternatively, you can add them by script:

myDrone addMagazine "1Rnd_Leaflets_West_F";
myDrone addWeapon "Bomb_Leaflets";

Several leaflet types exist apart from West, see the table below.

To let AI drop the leaflets, simply fire the weapon:

myDrone fire "Bomb_Leaflets";

Custom Leaflets

Leaflet visuals are tied to specific magazine type. They are defined in global Config.cpp, but can be overriden in Description.ext:

class CfgLeaflets
	class West // Configuration for 1Rnd_Leaflets_West_F
		text = "Text of the leaflet"; // Text shown when previewing the leaflet full-screen. Ideally should be localized, so even player who cannot read the image can get the information
		texture = "myLeaflet_ca.paa"; // Leaflet texture shown when previewing the leaflet full-screen
		model = "myLeaflet.p3d"; // In-flight model. Optional; When undefined, generic white leaflet is used
