I would hope it is assignAsCargo, and if that doesn't work try assignAsGunner. See also https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/assignAsCargo

In a transport helo mission I wrote, I simply create the AI crew when the player enters the pilot seat:

Code: [Select]
       
        waitUntil {sleep 1; vehicle _unit != _unit and (vehicle _unit) isKindOf "helicopter" and _unit == driver (vehicle _unit)};

        (vehicle _unit) vehicleChat "Welcome aboard! Tasking will start soon.";
        sleep 1;
        (vehicle _unit) vehicleChat "Boarding crew";
        createVehicleCrew (vehicle _unit);

assignAsGunner did not work which is why I asked, neither did assignAsCargo (they get in passenger seat). Interesting the other script option.

What is the mission you worked on? I've been trying to convert a Heli CAS mission into the ARMA context.

I use the createVehicleCrew command in both Chickenhawk on Da Krong and Random Helo Transport on Khe Sanh:
