  1. ; but none the less, if I get shot down, I'm not going to bother with the egress kit. I'm going to hold it by the carry handle and the spade grip and shoot from the hip like its a smart-gun. :D
  2. I'm confused then... Also The "weight" of the machinegun is definitely based on caliber. Much like above .50 is generally considered a cannon. As a side note, I come in contact with M240H fairly regularly. With the egress kit installed, it isn't too unwieldy to shoot from the shoulder. I wouldn't be able to shoulder it for an extended period because it IS 26 lbs (Heavier than the MG3 at 23 lbs). That said, generally speaking, the weapon would not be employed standing unless absolutely necessary because it is more effective from the prone with the bipod extended.

    I'd ask McRupert and Bad Benson what/how they did their raptor.

    No, its from an old page on this site I had it bookmarked a long time ago, but the web-master put a password on it and I can't get to it anymore. If you go to some of the links on the right side of the page, there's a wealth of knowledge there as well.

    War Plan Blue (W.P.B)

    Fantastic work; I mean, I never wear them unless I ABSOLUTELY HAVE to, but its great to see some proper ACUs being made.

    I have 1.2 GB of Colonial Marines references, if you're interested. It has closeups of the full scale model decals on the rocket pods as well. Be warned, you'll want to start a new model from scratch, like I did. ;)

    The cockpit/nose and inlets are a dead give away. ;) I do not envy you. Good luck, godspeed and may the force be with you. I got super frustrated with trying to fix it and then burned it down and started completely from scratch in O2and made quite a bit of headway. And then ArmA 3 happened and I got Modo Indie. And then I burned it down and started from scratch again. And then I got super lazy.

    Outstanding work. I can't wait to see the fruits of your labor.
  9. There has to be a rule against misleading people about "your addon" with a photograph.

    It would either have to be 9001 individual models stitched together or not have a working geometry LoD. The LHD from ArmA 2 was quite a few models put together, which is why you'd randomly fall through the seams to the ocean. Not saying its impossible, more impractical than anything. I remember messing around with getting that old freeware model into ArmA 2. Jeebus was it ever a nightmare. Too much detail where there doesn't need to be and not nearly enough where it counts. Glad to see that old girl in game and flying again though.

    On the side, behind the third eyelet down.

    War Plan Blue (W.P.B)

    Fair enough, still awesome to see my "daily drivers" in game. They look leagues better than the RHS US Army boots in game already. Also, some critiques: The when the vertical bit that holds the lace eyelets swoops back, it should be more of an abrupt corner than gentle curve. Well, that's all I got. :D Also, you're planning on "tying" the laces on the rockys and bellvilles when they're on the finished product, right? It would look kinda silly to see people running around with un-tied boots.

    Flight BOOTS! Does this maybe mean what I think it means?

    I can give you some references of A2CUs (Army Aircrew Combat Uniform), if you're interested at all. I don't know if I have anymore UCP ACUs since the switch to OCP, so I don't know how much of a help I'd be there.
  16. Y'all are killin' me. Just noticed something on your HH60M model.There should be a grate in the top step, which is used for the ECS (Fancy acronym for Air Conditioning) And behind that there is another grate for the exhaust just below and to the left of the LWR mount block. Also, there should be a duct on the cabin ceiling as well as another intake for the ECS (Circle thing) and a panel for the AMOGS.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Fan-freaking-tastic. I've had a soft spot (Or hard spot...) for the a2 since basic. I've begged my armorers to issue me one of the hand-full we had in the armory (Last unit, Active duty) that were for Operations people. Also, up until relatively recently, the 25th CAB was almost exclusively M16a2s. They had them on their '12 - '13 deployment to Afghanistan as well.
  18. That looks absolutely stunning. Fantastic work guys.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    From what I heard, it was big-Army catching wind of it and summary Pee-pee smackings went down the chain to the person responsible for such heresy. (I know its old, been in the field a week :o: ) I'm like 200% sure there are animations for flopping down prone, supine and to either side. Perhaps someone feeling so-inclined could fabricobble an addon utilizing these animations (Or someone with even greater knowledge could make their own animations) to achieve the desired effect. However I am not that someone, nor do I intend on trying to speak the language of 1's and 0's to bend them to my will.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    I can take some reference pics of my uniforms if you want. On a semi-kinda-related note, are A2CUs on some secret list of things to do at some point? If so, I can provide some references for those as well.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    The M16a2 still sees relatively wide use in active duty Army units (Hint, hint, nudge, nudge ;) ), but I doubt we'll see one in RHS. I would like to see some amphibious capabilities added to the US faction though.
  22. If you ask anyone in the Medevac community, they STRONGLY prefer the old UH60A+ to the HH60M and wish they had regular UH60Ms with red crosses. The HH mike is a literal ton heavier than its utility counterpart, meaning we have significantly less power when we need it and we can't fly quite as fast.
  23. As promised, the proper crewchief seats. Also, on the co-pilot side "greenhouse" (The skylight on the left side), there's an extra circuit breaker panel (seen on the left) and the plexi-glass is painted over to cover it.
  24. Blackhawk Crewchief here, spent 3 years on the HH60M, I don't think it is what you think it is. The CSAR bird in your pic is an HH60G, which is essentially a UH60L with a refuel probe, weather radar and cooler guns. And being an old DUSTOFF crewmember, Pedro can go do something not appropriate for mixed company. :biggrin: The HH60M has a litter lift system in the forward portion of the cabin capable of transporting 6 litter patients (VERY cramped like and will likely never happen) or 6 ambulatory or 3 of either. Usually the left side has the ambulatory seats down. There are also provisions for two normal UH60M seats behind the right hand crew seat for additional ambulatory patients in a pinch. Also, the folding stabilator on the xH60M is carbon fiber, not the ribbed metal you see on old HH60G's and SH60's. The crewchiefs have different seats from the ones in your pic, I'll procure some references later. And the blades look a little narrow. Other than those three little things, I like what I see so far. A lot.
