Is it possible to add something to a ground object with the fake pilot, in the same way we can do it with planes?

I would like to have a driver in the M38 Jeep.

Yes, by making the object to be added a missile/rocket which is never launched.
The GO (Jeep in your case) needs a WeaponSystem section with a missile launcher.
Can be a bit ini-editing intensive until it looks right, but its possible.. see my WIP pic
of a Quad .50 on the TW CargoShip mast :biggrin:  (still unfinished)

For positioning, example from my wip for the directions
WeaponPosition=0.0,40.0,23.0
// ------- ------------ = L/R, F/B, U/D   from GO center

Here is some ini stuff from an aircraft carrier:

[Hull]
ModelNodeName=Hull
EffectSize=1.0
MaxExtentPosition= 28.98, 112.25,15.3340
MinExtentPosition=-28.98,-107.22,-3.9800
//MaxExtentPosition= 28.98, 152.25,19.58
//MinExtentPosition=-28.98,-141.22,-3.98
StructuralFactor=8000.0
HasArmor=TRUE
ArmorMaterial=STEEL
Armor[FRONT].Thickness=25.4
Armor.Thickness=25.4
Armor.Thickness=25.4

Armor[REAR].Thickness=25.4
Armor[TOP].Thickness=25.4
Armor[BOTTOM].Thickness=25.4
SystemName[001]=Engine
SystemName[002]=Deck
SystemName[003]=Cat1
SystemName[004]=Cat2
SystemName[005]=Cat3
SystemName[006]=Cat4
SystemName[007]=Cat5
SystemName[008]=Cat6
SystemName[009]=Cat7
SystemName[010]=Cat8
SystemName[011]=Missile1
SystemName[012]=Missile2

 
[Missile1]
SystemType=MISSILE
MissileID=1
WeaponTypeName=BedfordCanvas
WeaponPosition=9.50,-38.00,15.3340
ShowMissile=TRUE
IndependentPitchMovement=FALSE

[Missile2]
SystemType=MISSILE
MissileID=1
WeaponTypeName=BedfordCanvas
WeaponPosition=12.50,-38.00,15.3340
ShowMissile=TRUE
IndependentPitchMovement=FALSE


This puts some trucks on the carrier.

Even easier if it works with just the SystemType.
As long as the added object (missile) doesn't need a yaw angle.

people have been doing this for years. It's just a matter of having models to add. I'm in the process of adding a 105mm gun to the T-69 and Tiran models thanks to GKABS making the barrel. I did some tests way back with adding crew to First Eagle vehicles and AA guns. Just a matter of having the right parts.

For the chinese T-69 you can simply use the stock T-62A LOD. What TK sold us as soviet T-62 is not a T-62 but a chinese T-69.

I'm using the ancient 3rd party model to test.
