Wow, that Mi-28 is fantastic. I've been waiting for a helo like that. Will it come with Ataka-V missiles (could also be retrofitted to the Hind, it still carries the old Shturms in RHS)? 

MSV are the regular motorised infantry.

 

MVD are probably the interior troops you're thinking of.

Yup, time to brush up on my Russian. MSV is an acronym for "Ministry of Internal Affairs"... in Polish. :) I suppose it stands for "Motorized Rifle Forces" here. Thanks. Why do they only come in green, though? I'm sure that it isn't just VDV that operates in Syria and the like.

 

Gee, I wish I could help bring the new release along.

They do operate in Syria, but most Russian SF use US multicam camo. There are Desert Uniforms provided in the mod, its in the Virtual Arsenal (EMR Summer).

Yes, I know, but setting up multiple squads of these guys is a bit of a hassle without some sort of "faction" equipped with EMR desert (or perhaps the older "Mountain Les" camo). I don't know much about config writing for ArmA (I've considered looking into that, though), but since all assets are already in place, setting up a desert faction shouldn't be too hard. Even a subfaction with desert infantry would help greatly, switching camo on all the vehicles is a bit tedious, but not too bad.

 

It's interesting to hear about Russian SF. Do they use the same uniforms as US ones (Crye G3 and the like) or do they have Russian uniforms in US multicam?

Mostly russian tailored uniform made of both original MC and knockoffs (depends on the tailor). Some have been seen in presumably original Crye swag (competition shooting and tactical porn magazines).

 

Ru SOF mostly use private purchase gear. Same as with boomsticks - some prefer Fagpul, some ZenitCo.  ;)

That rotor assembly is insane, what do you guys do for reference photos on something like that? I recently made an FN FAL and had to take something like ~6 hours just gather reference material before I felt comfortable blocking it out. Your guys' art team is absurdly talented!

Polite request, can user not quote images as it is a forum rule. Unfortunately several users have broke this rule today in this thread, if further rule breaks happen. Forum penalties maybe will be issued.  :ph34r:

Oh wow.Great work guys and gals.Always wanted a top notch Havoc in game-to go up against Franze and Nodunit's AH-64D. Will this beast be as scary as the Kaiman is now?I hate coming across them in the skies of Altis-even when I am in an A-10 or A-164 the Kaiman will often take me out...  ;(

Any pics of the passenger/medevac cabin? Mi-28 has 3 passenger spaces, mostly for rescuing downed pilots. Is that cabin modeled?

Notice the gas-mounted front sight and much longer sight radius. I don't blame TFB for mixing them up, I did too!!


So it's the AK-74M... M
LOL @ AK12 FANBOIS :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
 
Hell if the A-545 (AEK-971) proves to be reliable and inexpensive while also delivering on it's low recoil promise this spruced up AK74​ dumbed down AK107 might not even be adopted. THAT would be HILARIOUS

Russia isn't going to adopt the A-545. They'll buy the AK-12, because it's a solid upgrade on a proven rifle. I get that bystanders want novelty. But if you look at 21st century small arms procurement. The cheaper guaranteed improvement is always going to win against the expensive and complex possible improvement.

I kinda feel bad for BI since they just added the old new AK into the game XD

I dunno, with the whole Armata and PAK programs it seems that Russia is divesting itself of the old and going with new, unproven but potentially revolutionary improvements instead of upgrading the older platforms. Thus, I wouldn't count the A-545 being out solely based on the AK-400 AK-12 being the older, proven design. And given the Armata's engine troubles last Victory Day they don't seem to be afraid to adopt something that requires further improvements.

Again, it's whether or not the A-545 can deliver on being both a stupidly low recoil system while having the durability and reliability required and not costing an arm and a leg. The guys at Kovrov have had two decades to get the AEK into its current form and complexity doesn't necessarily mean unreliability, especially with a good mind or a lot of time (the C96 is very complex and the ones that still work are still quite reliable minimum 80 years later, and the durability is obviously there), and I wouldn't be surprised if they got the manufacturing costs down as well. Furthermore the ergonomics of the A-545 are outright superior with its ambidextrous selector and simple sliding stock compared to just putting a mock buffer tube on an AK and not even bothering with an ambi safety. I mean it passed closed trials so its obviously at least as good as the AK-74M and that was two years ago. Maybe Battlefield 4's reality of every Russian soldier with an AEK isn't as far fetched as it first seemed...

Furthermore if always is true then people would just be buying ARs and AK-100s instead of the more expensive HK416 and Galil ACE. And yet the number of ACE customer keeps growing the the French are reportedly going with the HK416. Not to mention he Norwegians and US Marines also adopting it not even counting the huge numbers of sales to Tactical Gunfighter Operators Tactically Operating Operationally in Tactical Gunfight Operations

 

I don't, it doesn't even have the right ammo! :P

The Ak-12 was advertised at the outset as being capable of using 7.62x39, 5.56x45, 5.45x39, 7.62x51, and 12 gauge. 5.45 was just its lead caliber since that's what the public and military was shooting, and nothing can get through Russian acceptance without having at least a variant that can shoot 7.62

That picture isn't the new "Ak12" , that's just the AK74M with MR upgrade

 

this is the new "AK12" which is the original AK-400 and that uses Dragunov system instead of typical AK

My bad, I'll blame TFB on that one. Edited post.

Honestly though it is REALLY EASY to mix them up. If you're looking for a good reference on the "New" Ak-12, check out larry vickers' video on the pre-production AK-400

And for the AEK-971. Note that this is an older prototype without the RIS or HK-style sliding stock, though functionally it is the same as the A545
