Moves the soldier into the vehicle's turret. (Immediately, without animation).
See AI Group Vehicle Management for more information.
If the unit is already in a vehicle, nothing will happen. You should use moveOut to move the unit out of his vehicle before trying to move him into a new (or same) vehicle.


unitName moveInTurret [vehicle, turretPath]
unitName: Object
vehicle: Object
turretPath: Array format Turret Path
Return Value:


Example 1:

To find out which turrets are available on a vehicle (edit: before allTurrets), and what the syntax is, you can use this little script.

Examples for nested turrets: MainTurret =
_soldierOne moveInTurret [_tank, [0]];
CommanderTurret =
_soldierOne moveInTurret [_tank, [0, 0]];
... where: MainTurret is the standard BIS MainTurret... e.g:
class Turrets 
	class MainTurret {};

CommanderTurret is the standard BIS CommanderTurret located on the MainTurret... e.g:

class Turrets 
	class MainTurret
		class Turrets 
			class CommanderTurret {};

Here is a small function to find available turret paths for a given vehicle. It will only search 2 levels deep, hence called commonTurrets:
KK_fnc_commonTurrets = { private ["_arr","_trts"]; _arr = []; _trts = configFile / "CfgVehicles" / typeOf _this / "Turrets"; for "_i" from 0 to count _trts - 1 do { _arr set [count _arr, [_i]]; for "_j" from 0 to count ( _trts / configName (_trts select _i) / "Turrets" ) - 1 do { _arr set [count _arr, [_i, _j]]; }; }; _arr };
Example call:
hint str (vehicle player call KK_fnc_commonTurrets); // [[0],[0,0]]
