Boeing/SOAR MH-47E v1.3 Release

*Requires Operation Arrowhead/Combined Operations.*

The Release of the MH-47E Chinook is finally here! Im happy with how this has turned out, shes looking good and is finally ready for what ever you all may throw at her :) Many people have given help to this Chinook and i think you will all agree with me when i say that it has all payed off! So a huge thanks them! & Also to yurapertov, BlackMamb, VXR, Astast & Norrin, soldier2390. Without them this Chinook wouldn't be as great as it is today! Without a doubt! Also thanks to Smiley_Nick for allowing me to use his unreleased model of his RAF_Chin47 addon to transform it into this MH-47E. Last but not least, thanks to everyone on the Bohemia Interactive Forums for the amount of support you have given me & everyone else who was involved. It's been great! So again, thanks to you all!


The Fast Roping Issue when used with Yura's MH60L hasn't yet been fixed as were still working on it. However i wont hold up this release because of that as its had a few other main bug fix's too which are included. The next updated (v1.4) will include the Fast Roping Fix once completed.


Thats all to be said, now have fun flying & enjoy! :D

• Fast Roping Instructions •

To use the Fast Roping thats included with this download you must have from 1 - 24 Cargo Passengers inside the MH47E. Hover at height of below 10 and a 'Deploy Ropes' option will appear in the action menu. Once that action has been clicked the Script will deploy the Fast Ropes and drop off your crew automatically without you doing anything at all. So sit back and keep the MH47E in a controlled hover while your crew Fast Rope. Once all your crew have been Fast Roped just press the 'Release Ropes' option in the action menu. The Ropes will then drop to the ground and you can continue flying.

• Slingloading Instructions •

To use the Sling Loading on the MH47E. Just Hover above any BIS RHIB's, any BIS HMWVV's, an M119 or any BIS Ammo Box's. There is an 'Extend Cargo Ropes' option in the action menu when hovered, once pressed the Ropes will deploy below the belly of the MH47E. Line the ropes up with the object you want to Sling and another option will appear in the action menu saying 'Attach Cargo'. Once clicked it will Sling your cargo and you can continue flying where you want to drop the slung cargo. Beware, flying too low will automatically de-attach your cargo, so be careful. Once above the desired drop location put the MH47E in an hover and at a height of below 20 there will be an 'De-attach Cargo' option in the action menu. This will de-attach your cargo on the desired location below the chopper.

Just had a quick flight and its great..

Really loving this konyo, the wipers are a great feature alone and will add real immersion to a cold wet stormy night mission, that’s without all the other features..

Great work and thanks to you and all who helped for sharing it..:)

Cargo feature looks amazing!

Small bug report.

- When placed empty in the editor, then flying to pick up some cargo, I have multiple entries for the ropes which are getting more and more.

- Cargo can not be released on an editor placed LHD ship. I think the cargo is going through the ship into the sea.

Good thing, your chopper is still working with the "RAV Lifter" Addon. So we are still able to lift ammo crates, fuel, etc.

MfG Lee
