But the difference between V and P is way smaller than AH-1G-AH-1F/W. Thats why people talk about it because i think devs can easiler listen here as its easier for them to change their mind about the Hind

Which also means it should not be as big of a deal to the players if the devs don't change their mind.

I don't think the AH-1 comparison is valid. The difference between the Mi-24 V and the P is nothing but a gun. Potentially easy to change but also not very significant sales wise from the looks of it. The difference between the AH-1G and AH-1W is a whole lot more than a simple gun swap. They are so different that just about the only thing they have in common is the "AH-1" designation. For us, the most practical difference is one can carry modern guided missiles and the other can't carry guided anything. The AH-1G vs AH-1W decision is more akin to Mi-24A vs Mi-24P. I don't think there is much of a debate on which would see more sales.

So anyone think will it be possible for Belsimtek to include both variants, given the seemingly small differences?

As far as I know, the C-101 module is going to have two variants in its final version so it would not be without precedent.

Sure that would be possible. It also would probably be the most satisfying option for all of the users.

Default Mi24 Hind VP / VM a good balance

I would like to ask Belsimtek to look into possibility to make a Hind VP or even a VM instead of the P.

Personally i do not like the idea of the fixed gun. Also it misses the iconic gunturret that makes the Hind well..... the Hind.

I can understand that the 12,7mm machine gun is kinda weak against alot of targets.

So the 23mm autocannon in the flexible turret should be the ultimate solution.
