Any chance this information is available? I can locate the standard ARMA loads but not the CUP vehicles.

If you look up how to open and use the Arma 3 config viewer, that should have the information you seek. I don't think there is any online documentation for this.

You can open the viewer in the eden editor. All helicopters will be in the "CfgVehicles" category. You will then need to locate the helicopter by classname.

I'm not sure what the config entry for lifting capacity is called, but it should be somewhere in the config data. I know I've seen it

You are welcome!

I just remembered that there is a way to easily find the chopper you are looking for in the config viewer.

Find the chopper in the editor by searching for it's common name. Place one down. Then right click on it and there should be an option to view it in the config viewer. Will link you right to correct info. Hope this helps.

In the future, I may look into displaying the lifting capacity of helicopters in the exile trader screen.
