  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    Army blades are black so they blend in at least a little bit on the ground in the field, just like with the rest of the paintjob. Gotta be tactical. I think its dumb, but I'm not in charge. The USMC, Navy and Airforce aircraft are painted gray to blend in with the sky better because they never park off of a flight-line or boat.

    The 240 sounds pretty good, a little sharp though. Here's what an M240(H) sounds like from a couple hundred feet away. With 100% less helicopter noise. B)
  6. That same model is in the water at the approach end of the runway on Stratis... So I'm not inclined to believe it means anything. ;)
  7. The ball is in Valve's court at this point; it is a Steam issue, not a BIS issue. I've been waiting to see Tanoa on the Dev change log for ages, I'm excited to finally get to fly around it. Simply beautiful, my household goods finally arrives today and I get my desktop back. What GPU are you running, if you don't mind me asking?

    I fixed it. I'm just too stubborn to move on. lol

    I'm loving the HK 416 with the classic sights, I just have a couple critiques to make them even better. The front sight blade is a hair too wide. They're pretty close to a standard M4/M16 front sight post. The shroud going around the front sight blade is too short, it should continue up and around probably a quarter inch. If possible, something more similar to the sight picture seen in the first image below where the shroud just meets the inside of the peep would be awesome. Thanks for all the hard work.

    Visual Upgrade – Feedback

    Generally I agree with you, however I think there should be a slider, just like clouds, for how murky the water is because there are definitely cases where the water is crystal clear or even more murky.
  12. Looks fine to me. When the flightline goes from black asphalt to light gray concrete blocks, the yellow taxi lines get really hard to see from a distance. Looks pretty realistic to me. http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u125/booce/ArmA%20II/taxilines.jpg
  13. Been fiddling with 3ds Max for a while, so these are mostly experiments to see what I can do and to get a good workflow with the program. I'm making a UH1H and a UH-60M. I'll likely throw the UH1 in with the FIA because they're lacking an aircraft at the moment. The Mike model 60 will be NATO, I hate the Ghost hawk and I'm sure the Army will be using mikes well into the 2030's. Progress will be slow because I don't have much free time at the moment.
  14. Not sure if you could call it progress, but I've started over from scratch in Modo Indie and I'm almost where I was in 3ds.

    The military has what are called EOMS (Electro-Optical Missile Sensors). They detect the exhaust plume from missiles, and can even identify what kind of missile it is. If you look at the "UH-60M" in RHS, you can see them on the nose (The random cylinders sticking out). They're on the UH1Y, AH1Z, CH47 and AH64 as well. Here you can see the APR-39 RWR (Black hockeypuck looking thing) and the EOMS (Thing with the glass and orange) You'll also have the AVR-2b, seen below, that detects lasers. You SHOULD get a warning from the Shilka locking on to you, but then again the Ai might not actually be "tabbing" on to you. I know in OA you would get a warning if one was looking at you but you were still out of range.

    Generally speaking, this is true. However, all of the MFDs are capable of displaying any page, so it isn't necessarily unrealistic. To me, this isn't as big of a deal as the hover attitude being wrong (And is a simple change in O2, rotate everything 3 degrees nose up) or the CG not being directly over the cargo hooks (Seems like every helo) causing the nose to pitch without any input.
  17. None of the witty responses I can come up with would be considered in good taste for the forum. You win this round. The mini-guns are looking great, keep up the good work.
  18. As someone who just got done doing aerial gunnery from a blackhawk I can say with great certainty that what sounds good on paper cannot be farther from reality. You don't even use the iron sights; you shoot by feel and have to lag behind a bit so the bullets can "curve" into the target (This happens in ArmA too to a degree). This effect gets worse the more distance between you and your intended target there is. Even if you could somehow have an eye relief of like a foot and a half for an ACOG, you'd be aiming at a target you couldn't even see. Even a red dot sight is less effective than "shooting from the hip". Also in regards to the MH60M, there are a couple technical critiques (More for a Mike model in general, I'm not going to talk about the MH60 specific things cause I'm not a Taskforce guy). The UES is shaped weird on your model, take a peek at some refrences I have on my photobucket to compare. The dragbeam fairings on your model are the Lima varient, the mike model are more square on the bottom to allow for the installation of the LWR sensors. There also shouldn't be a HF antenna going down the tail cone. Though I'm sure those are place holders, your main rotor blades are the Alpha/Lima type. Otherwise great work.
  19. You know you wanna. :wub:
  20. Got an update for you guys.
  21. Is there going to be a "united Chernarus" with Utes out in the ocean somewhere?
  22. The PC (Pilot in command) and PI (The other pilot) change seats all the time. Its really up to pilot preference. Though my pilots tend to put the PC on the left which is backwards from what it is "supposed to be". Not sure if this trend translates to 160th littlebirds from regular army medevac blackhawks though. ---------------------- Wow, did not realize I was that far back in the thread. Anyway great work on these little buggers, I somehow just now got around to fiddling around with them and I'm having a lot of fun with them. Great work guys.
  23. Maybe on a Chinook or littlebird, shouldn't be able to see it on a blackhawk with either HIRSS or the UES at all (You can't even see it when you mash your face to the top of the UES, much less from what would be 3rd person, and the HIRSS baffles completely block the engine). It would be a waste of resources on the hawk.
  24. The Smartgun has been the tricky one for me, I've started it over a few times so far because I can never quite get it right. That's true, I don't know what it looks like or how exactly it'll attach though. I 'spose I'll have to be a little creative I guess.
