[CHECKING] Low Resistance of Mi-8
 
In your opinion, isn't the resistence of Mi-8 too low?


If you are hit by a few 5.56 bullets, engine fire, hydraulic failure and bye bye...


For example the Huey is a T90 if compared to Mi-8 :lol:



Tks for your feedback.

yes, me & buds have noticed that it is incredibly vulnerable- paratrooper AKS can basically kill every single important system with like 5 rounds of 5.45

Yep. Been wondering about this for a while. I don't ever try to engage standard infantry anymore. Recipe for disaster. Better luck vs anti-tank troops, ironically.

Yeah, seems pretty vulnerable. Been wondering about this for ages already myself too.

As a consequence though, I've flown her as an unarmed troop carrier for a while now with a friend providing cover in a gunship Huey, and that seems to work pretty well.

I honestly don't know the real vulnerability of Mi-8, but the ease with which it is damaged in the most important systems seems to me really strange. Do you think is it appropriate to report this as a bug?

Dino Might 12-11-2018 12:18 AM

Yes. Either the mi8 has a bugged damage model, or the gazelle and huey both do.

Here's a video of one IRL being hit by a manpad, and continuing on like it doesn't care.

I also agree it has a damage model that leaves it out of balance with the other helicopters in DCS at the moment.

Looking back at the tracks, a single ak-74 burst of seven rounds will bring you down pretty reliably.

Now - that CAN happen I suppose, but it should definitely not be "likely" or as it is now "almost certain." And not only in the Mi-8.

I'd fly it a LOT more if this were brought into balance with the other helos.

Well I don't know. I just flew a troops carrier mission where I took a couple of 23mm HE AA hits and then some small arms fire shortly afterwards. At first nothing happened, but then I lost my main hydro after maybe five minutes and then the rear rotor drivetrain failed a bit later. Managed to crash land though and thus survived intact.

The thing is there was no immediate damage and the chopper felt overall more sturdy as well. So maybe they've done something or I'm imagining things, I don't know?
