Have fun! She’s a handful on the pedals, and also sensitive on the cyclic. So far the hardest heli to fly imho.
Guess this bird calls heartily for some same-craft co-op, uh?
PvP with Ka-50s on the other side…
There was a mission that I believe came with the Ka-50 standard – Battle.miz or something like that – that starts the player off in air just on the friendly side of the FEBA of a massive ground battle. It’d be great to take this mission, make it MP, and put Gazelles on the BLUE side, FARPs on both, maybe some CA slots as well.
that’s in the works
Oh ho! Man that sounds NICE!
I still totally want to have a Peter Pilot for my Huey though (or be one for another more skilled pilot!)
It sure does sound supersweet. You know that those ATGMs are steered with a small joystick? Guess what you can do with your flightstick when you’re in the gunner position…
gasp You can edit axis curves while in multiplayer?!?
No, not as far as I know. The thing is. If you are currently in the gunner seat with the autopilot hover mode active, your stick movements will instead control the weapon sight So no funky slewing keys! Aim that stuff with the stick. It’s very cool but also very necessary. The HOT3 is a SACLOS (Semi-Automatic Command Line of Sight) weapon wich means you need to keep pointing the sight at the target untill he’s dead, and while the sight is stabilized you cannot lock or anything like that.
I hope that when multicrew comes the gunner can aim the sight with his joystick as well.
This is me at work with the stick as controller for the sight. You can see I can follow that T-55 fairly accuratly. With slewing buttons this would be nigh impossible.
