Notes

To place a satchel (pipebomb) the syntax is:
OFP: unitname Fire ["put", "pipebomb"]
ArmA: unitname Fire ["pipebombmuzzle", "pipebombmuzzle", "pipebomb"];
The triggering is done via a "TOUCHOFF" action.

In OFP v1.96, when a man class unit is given this command, he will aim up in the air before firing his weapon. This makes it rather useless if you want to make him shoot a target. It does work with vehicles, when the vehicle is first given a doWatch or doTarget command.

In ArmA v1.02, this command is not working with weapons in the secondary turrets (like "DSHKM" in t72)

Sometimes AI won't shoot when you use this command. It can be fixed by placing selectWeapon command before it.

In Arma2 AI will automatically shoot straight up. Command seems to be broken.

The VBS2 variant of this command (see fire (VBS2)) has an optional 4th parameter, containing the ASL position of the target. That fixes the problem with the AI shooting into the air.
