In the missions that have CoC UA support, usually it means that you grab the radio from the table, unless you have radio operator in your team (and I think the mission configured properly). Then just use the action menu to bring UA online.

You'll find UA in PMC NAM 1965, PMC NAM SEAL campaigns and in couple of single missions too (at least PMC NAM Command #1 and #2).

When building a mission how do you add artillery support? Also when a artillery unit is available how exactly do you make the officer a squad to call for artillery support? One more thing when you add a artillery unit as a group what action should I place when I use the waypoint option for that unit?

By placing the arty units, CoC obelisk and giving radio (or the init line thing) for some unit(s).
Also when a artillery unit is available how exactly do you make the officer a squad to call for artillery support?
By using the radio if player is the officer. By scripts I mentioned in the other topic if its AI.

No waypoints.

I have been trying to accomodate all your questions, but the CoC UA usage has nothing to do with VTE so now I have to do RTFM for you and ask you to read the CoC manuals/readmes so you learn how to use the basic UA in your missions.

After reading the mentioned, if you have some specific questions which relate to VTE artillery, feel free to ask.
