    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    I would not agree with it. At leasrt camo#4 scheme on both Mi-8 and Mi-24 had been used during Soviet times. All the 'soot camo' schemes on the 24s AFAIK were used on the particular helos that participated in the Second Chechen war. So they had the 'old' red-white stars. Never seen all-green Hinds at all. Especially on the pics taken on mid-2000s and earlier. The only single color scheme known to me that had ever been adopted and used was the dark gray one, since 2010s. Could you bring any pics of all-green Hinds here? That would be interesting to look at.

    Red stars. Since they are the parts of the hull texture do you have any plans to add a separate selections for them? So we could make some soviet and 90's - early 2000's variants.

    Another noob question from me: can the RuAF aviation insignias on the Mi-8/-24 be changed for some other variants? Or are they a parts of the hull textures?

    Soviet AF Pack

    Yes, Yak-38 had no cannon. But it could use UPK-23-250 pods mounted on the wing pylons. BTW I have one Yak standing in our local armed forces museum, so I can take some pics of its parts if necessary. Oh and it had been produced in my city.

    There are some cargo planes available in Steam workshop already. For example, hcpookie's Soviet AF and civilian airliners packs.

    How about the texture numbers on the Su-17 and MiG-29? I've tried 2-5 on the Su-17 and 7-9 on the MiG-29 but the numbers are drawn despite this.
  7. I've seen a number of fresh vids with WW2 veterans who are able to shoot the rifles they used during their service or even drive the tanks and fly the planes. Shouldn't say that addon-making is much harder than this😁

    Western Sahara CDLC Unofficial Discussion

    At first I've read the name of this CDLC and thought: "Hmm, POLISARIO vs Morocco, old good cold war assets... That's pretty good!". And then saw the screenshots... No, thanks.

    So are there any transparent textures of the same dimensions in the pbo? Could you provide the path and the "setObjectTexture" numbers?

    Well, to use the advantage of the real life speeds of the MiG-21 you have to have at least the DCS-scale map😁

    Such speed is quite enough for the dimensions of ArmA maps.

    Is there any way to set or disable the random numbers on the planes? Sometimes they mix with the numbers painted on the plane's livery (for example on MiG-21s).

    Vietnam used Mi-24A's until mid 2000's. The engines, APU, transmission, rotors, chassis, most part of the electrical systems of Hind-A do not differ much with the later models. Or even the same. So... If there is a choice between having an old assault helicopter from the storage base or having nothing... For example, Armenians used several Mi-24K's (observation and artillery directing variant that became useless in smaller post-USSR armies) as a regular assault helicopters. During Donbass war Ukrainian army used RKhM "Kashalot" NBC recon vehicles as an improvised APCs. Even in the Afghan war some Soviet army detachments used such exotic vehicle as escorting vehicle for Strategic missile TELs based on BTR-70 as regular APC (look at the turret on the photo). So it's a kind of the tradition...

    Why not? There were a lot of cases when newly formed post-Soviet countries used the old hardware from various storage bases and former Soviet army training centers.

    Nope. I'm talking about the Soviet 280th helicopter regt. Soviet airforce used their Hinds-A in Afghanistan too. There were few of them (approx. 6 helicopters), but still... Some sources claim that it's one of them:
