In multiplayer, only run this command on one machine. It will create a the vehicle on all machines every time it is called on any machine.

This command sets the created vehicle not exactly at the given position, you have to setPos it there, if accuracy counts.

This command sets the created vehicle in the nearest _possible_ position. You can create a dozen of tanks with it - they will appear side by side.

Observe that buildings with the default destrType will not work correctly in multiplayer in Armed Assault when created with this command. The Destruction effect will only be displayed where the building is local.

As of Arma2, this command cannot be used to create game logics (source). Use createUnit instead.

Using getPosATL should work, if otherwise you are struggling to get a the proper position coordinates.

According to Code Optimisation, this function is considered deprecated and should be used createVehicle array instead.
