Thanks mate :) there really wasn't any good blueprints out there :( but there was one low res though with sideview and topview so that is all i have been able to work off of. I wasn't sure if i should make the holes that goes all around the top of the sides due to the poly count but i made them anyway and it didn't impact the poly count too much :)

Looking back reminds me you owe me a beta test of a rifle too, haha.

Always nice to look back, as to not forget where you came from, particularly in your case were you've seem to become quite good in little less than 6 months...

Haha that rifle pack won't be finished i was a little more than too ambitious when i started and weapons isn't my way of doing it :) I do hope i can delivre at least one beta of something. Note i said "Hope" :)

didn't think there were any old wip left out there for me to throw away i guess i was wrong, I might remake that helmet for the sake of Konyos mh-47 :P But thanks Scarecrow :)

A higher detail blueprint is in hands of Astast, along with a few photos of the cabin in detail.

So I assume it will be made as it shows on those and the screenshot is pre receiving the photos.

I think it depends on the AO.

I recall pilots back in Iraq having vests that would run cooled water through them to take away heat.

I also recall seeing pilots in both one piece flight suits in tan (That photo is actually 'Elvis' Wallcot, Pilot of Super 6-1, shot down in Somalia) and OD and regular two piece uniforms, both in UCP and Multicam, though likely with flame retardant material.

As for Vests, that seems to be hard to find, though i have seen both Aussie and British pilots with Multicam/UCP versions rather than said countries camouflage so the manufacture's might be limited.

Thanks for that info however i don't think army helicopter pilots still use the one piece flight suit i did find a picture of some pilots in a uniform that looked like a standard acu but it wasn't an acu it was a special pilot version it had ucp camo btw. i assume the current soar units have the same uniform as the the other army pilots?

Yeah that looks ok to me mate, now you can see it, but i'm no pilot helmet expert :p

With that last point in mind I think your looking for the A2CU uniform, it's the two-piece flight suit.

I'm sure someone will clear it up for you though :D

Nice work mate.

We've had a bespoke aircrew uniform in MTP for a while (it looks quite different to the standard PCS soldier uniform) but the UK only just got aircrew vests in Multicam/MTP to match the uniforms. The MoD recently got some plate carriers designed by Eagle Industries especially for our aircrews (shown in the first few mins of

). Prior to that an armoured life-preserver in desert DPM was the standard aircrew vest for us.

I was doing some research on the above vest for StalkerGB but did a bit of reading into what the US Army use in the process of gathering info on the new UK kit.

The Yanks have a uniform and vest system called "Air Warrior" IIRC. It was originally in UCP but they seem to have rolled out the kit in Multicam/OCP as well now. AFAIK it comprises of the HGU helmet, A2CU uniform, flexible BALCS-type body armour and a survival vest/harness referred to as PSGC.

Pics of the various elements are available here:

I think I read somewhere that pilots don't wear back plates in the body armour element because their seats are armoured, but crew-chiefs, gunners etc wear the full ensemble with that face shield on the helmet (the UK has started giving door-gunners those sorts of face shields on the new aircrew helmets too - but they're by a different manufacturer)

SOAR probably have something different but I didn't really come across any info about them while looking what was on the market for aircrews to wear.

Thanks for that info i also have an idea that SOAR uses something else than the PSGC like a plate carrier i guess i will need to go hunting :P
