Tips:

- If you want to remove the "United States Army" text from the hueys, add this in the helicopters init field in the editor:

this setObjectTexture [3,""]

Known issues:

- Copilot controls are clumsy/unfinished. Only meant to be used in case of an emergency.

- Some clipping issues with passengers.

- Occasional odd behaviours from wrecks.

- Gunview is not working properly in the huey's copilot seats, stay in cockpit-view to aim the guns.

- UH-1C "Heavy Hog": The guns controlled by the pilot has no lightsource in their muzzleflashes.

- UH-1C "Heavy Hog": The double-mounted guns in the sideturrets only shoots one bulletstream. The double-mount is only visual.

- Due to modifications, some helicopters have stretchmarks. I tried to hide them the best I could.

- AI will not use TOW.

Future plans:

- Modifications of the Bell 412.

Unbinarised files:

You do not need to ask me for permission for anything. Go nuts.:)

Love the mod but is there suppose to be 2 M240's per side on the UH Heavy Hog? Seams a bit odd. But hey love the mod keep it up. Can I make a request also... A UH-1N with no rocket pods and only door guns.

awesome mod man, i just wanna point out that the Heavy Hog variant i cannot shoot out the pilot/Copilot or even the two door gunners at all, used small arms 9mm to .50 and nothing, tested a few other variants and there ok to shoot the AI out of, another thing is the textures on the UH-1N could use a bit of work, do you plan on doing any newer variants of the UH-1N with GAU-21 .50s?, ive notice with sometimes the hueys wont turn while on the ground like they should be able to use the tail rotor to slide left or right. I love this mod been waiting for a good huey pack for quite some time, thank you for this awesomesauce.

Also this mod pack would be awesome with the Advance Flight Model.

BagPiperGuy, there used to be a version of the UH-1 in service with the Australian Army called the Bushranger. It was armed with 2 7-round rocket pods, 2 7.62mm miniguns and two pairs of M60 GPMGs for the gunners. It was used in Vietnam and I believe it was phased out 10 to 15 years ago, so the mounting of twin M240s in the doorways is quite realistic.

These are great. Excellent work, I love the Huey. Any chance of getting some all black variants of them for use with PMCs ? Don't want to be one of those guys who always asks for more but would love to use these with my PMC missions. Thanks for the work!

The advanced flight model is not in my plans at the moment. I simply don't know how to implement it.:confused:

The double-mounted guns were inspired by a picture i saw. I wanted the Heavy Hog too look mean and dangerous.:cool:

Some of the helicopters have missing fire geometry (passengers/crewmembers cannot be hit while in the helicopter). I'll have it fixed Januar 23.

The UH-1N has some nasty stretching of its texture. I don't think it is possible to fix that. I'm currently experimenting with the UH-1Y. I might be able to turn it into a modern UH-1N.

CptDavo sent me some nice textures. I'll add them Januar 23.

Once I have cleaned up the helicopter models(remove unused memorypoints etc.), I will upload the files unbinarised, so anyone will be able to make whatever changes he/she likes.:)

I guess it finally sunk that yea you can use the UH-1Y its just a upgraded UH-1N anyways so it would be the perfect model for it.

The UH-1Y turned out to be much better for the transformation than the UH-1H. I even found a model of a Browning machinegun in the ARMA_SampleVehiclesWeapons pack. It should fit well compared to the real world version.

Be carefull during take off. Aggressive liftoffs(tilting the helicopter too much to either side or forward) can cause the main rotor and engine to break down.

I plan on 3 more helicopters. I'm working on unarmed versions of the "Iroquois" and "Venom". And then of course the normal armed "Venom" as well.

Great stuff mate! Keep up the awesome work! Love the new UH-1N! (Should get rid of the UH-1N Escort and closed variants with my USMC/Navy skin and replace them with the new UH-1N Iroquois variants.)Also the new darker skins would be best suited for the UH-1H variants. (I have also updated my 7z link I gave you with a new set of skins including the shark and medevac versions and I've re-added in the US ARMY Alpha layer.) I've also noticed that you have a whole bunch of textures for the apache, cobra, blackhawk etc. (Do they need to be in the pack?)

On another note, would you consider asking Lord Jarhead for his sounds(JSRS 2.1 from A2) for your pack? (Working with him the past, he is fine as long as you acknowledge him and check with him beforehand) I maybe able to help you with them if you'd like.

Great stuff, Thanks for the release :)!

Sorry for the nitpicking but, thought you might appreciate being made of aware of the following:

I noticed that when you shoot the hueys with a MX rifle that a brown dust cloud appears if you hit the any of the helicopters on the side, most other vehicles in arma are configured (like the littlebird) are configured to give out a smaller greyish colour that better represents the metal rather than the dirt. It was quite noticable as I poured in machinegun fire into a huey.
