  1. The 8 and 24 are extremely similar, that's a fact. The Mi-24 was designed on the drawing board to fill an empty role and answers the Red Army request for a versatile ground attack AND transport helicopter. It was built using very similar and often the same dynamic components ( rotorheads, transmission, drivetrain, engines... ) than the Mi-8 to save time and costs on development and servicing. For instance, the main rotor is basically the very same but with wider chord blades. You can compare the Mi-8 and Mi-24 with the UH-1 Huey and AH-1 Huey Cobra, they wer
  2. Hello PilotMi8, One year after the creation of this thread, I see it still has had some love in terms of features ( multicrew ... ), hope an overhaul is also planned but am sure you are busy with tons of stuff at once ! Good luck for these happy new year and happy new year for all of you !
  3. You're welcome ! Well, that is their signature sound, like the Huey has it's own one Do you think it's disturbing ? Some manufacturers put symetrical followers, ( SA 365 Dauphin for instance ) mainly for balancing purposes, but this may have reduced the " noise " on this one, thus adding weight, costs and maintenance...
  4. This part, also known as just " follower " or " swashplate follower " is an angle compass that mechanically links the rotating swashplate and the rotorhead. The torque is consequent in this area and by design, the movement/torque transmission shouldn't even be tried to be transmitted via the pitch links, which are designed just for that : actuate individual blade pitch, and not drive the swahsplate. From a cinematic point of view : - The Main Gear Box houses the rotor mast - The rotor mast is bolted onto the rotor hub ( yoke ) - The swash follower is bol
  5. I mean.. I was hoping to see emergence of dedicated online squads ! Watch this entirely and tell me you’re not about to dream being one of these Flights where power comes from strategy, training and discipline !
  6. Or maybe I’ll have to repair that module, will it delete all joystick and keyboard assignment as well as records, logs and campaigns etc ? Just want to restore vanilla files for rotor texture
  7. Hello ! I’d like to get back to default rotor textures ( blurred ) and start from there, could please someone upload the file here or via PM ? Many thanks
  8. Thanks, glad you like it ;) If you're interested in more of that, take your time to browse that YouTube channel, many Soviet classics remastered with original recording quality and a full set of international subtitles.. Looking for my next one for tonight ;-P
  9. In my passion for Russian/Soviet world, I discovered a pearl : Мимино The story of a Georgian helicopter ( Mil Mi-2 ) pilot and it's stories, in good old Caucasus... I'm sure it may please some of you, who are more into delicate heli flying in the mountains than flying at Mach 2 at FL 450 ! I really enjoyed the tone and atmosphere of this movie, very good quality also.
  10. https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3312304/ It's here !! Many many thanks Ogma, you're the best ! Hueyman
  11. It's a very complete and realistic module indeed. Quite confusing but the Mi-17 is basically the very same Mi-8, but export version. Only Russian operated A/C are designated Mi-8. The full designation philosophy is quite complex, but saying Mi-17 is an upgraded Mi-8 with tail rotor on the other side is a big simplification. Some Mi-8s ( MTV-5 for instance ) are more performant and younger than older Mi-17-1V. I agree that this module would only need a 3D/4K/PBR overhaul, maybe a bit regarding the sounds ( the whisling sound of the swashplate driver "scissor" is louder IRL ) but
  12. It's really one of the most detailed and in-depth system simulation ever made around, really under rated .. I believe I saw somewhere they have a slightly different version directly used for FTD Level 3 Mi-8/17 simulators for real crews Type Rating .. It looks very advanced and feature complete system wise, maybe only a cosmetic overhaul, to be on par with incoming Mil Mi-24 ( looking STELLAR ) would be welcommed ! I'd be ready to financially support this, like Black Shark 2,3 .. and A-10 II ..
  13. It's an awesome module as we're already used to with Eagle Dynamics, but it's also an awesome aircraft with rich history ! I am really surprised in the negative way to see so little interest in it so far .. - There are not many liveries ( though not sure if the paintkit was released ) - No quick/instant missions in Syria - Still waiting for rocket implementation and correct bomb damage blast - No serious campaing that I'm aware of are in the process of being made using Normandy or The Channel - Very little use online - Was expecting to see a ton of virtual sq
