  1. Ok I really cant understand the fascination of the MD500 especially in its combat role, people seem to love the MD500. Why the MD500 is a horrible combat platform - its unarmored a completely exposed air frame with no armor for any system besides the engine protecting the pilot from rearwards fire - it is a slow Helicopter at 282km/h top speed - it is very small helicopter while it might be good in certain situations in others a short combined burst from an section can kill both pilots - the MD500 has only a single engine making combat survivability low - a Fully fueled MD500 equates to 45% of its total takeoff weight - very poor flight performance at its typical combat load of fuel and ammo (same thing applies to the MH-6 with 6 passengers) - Combat range of the helicopter is rather poor only allowing a range of 400 km - Limited amount of Ammo 5000 rounds for 7.62 and 4 hellfire or 14 unguided rockets So what do you guys thing the advantage of the AH-6/ MH-6 is, what helicopter is better then the MD500. What I think is a better platform is the Mi-8, why do i say that well... - it can hold 24 passengers (maybe with a ammo load aswell) - it can hold 12 passengers with a full ammo load - twin engines with a APU, redundant flight control linkages - ammo selections is great, 6 pylons with a combinations of 2x7.62/1x12.7 minigun pod, 30mm AGS 17 400 rounds per pod, GSH-23-2 cannon, Mine dispensers, various bomb loads, 6 malyutka ATGM with standard under pylon loads, 2 x 4 Ataka missles , fuel tanks both internal and external, number of rocket pods 192 total 57mm rockets :O, 120 80mm rockets, chemical weapons/ agricultural spray ( to keep mosquito down) - loading of cargo such as small vehicles, atv, 120mm mortars small artillery pieces can be loaded in the back - All around gunners front back left right and even the rear. - depending on the model number of exit and entering point - can be equipped for ECM work - can be used in high altitude environments - great medvac helicopter with 12 stretchers - max speed 250 km/h - max range 950 km - its used around the world so parts are common - very dependable platform which does not a require shipping container of tools - they even have a ASW variant called the Mi-14 which can float on water - rolling takeoffs and landings can be made easily even while embarking and disembarking troops - very easy to parachute out of, even allows the use of static lines - photo recon ver, minelaying ver, artillery correcting ver - can under sling loads - use of rope ladders, rope attachment extraction, and they even have a special under sling array of twin row of seats back to back for fast extraction without landing :P what is there not to love about the Mi-8 platfrom what would you say is a better platform.
