There are also a few "maybe" weapons discussed in the big thread:

- Ataka missiles: guidance is apparently identical to Shturm, and a page from Mi-24 manual from 80s listed Ataka among weapon possibilities. Ataka has a bigger warhead, somewhat higher speed, longer range, and option for a blast/frag warhead.
- R-60 air to air missiles: some Mi-24s in Germany were modified to carry these. But that is more of a special modification than a general ability of Mi-24
- KMGU submunition dispensers

Finally, 7.62mm machine guns could be mounted on cargo bay doors. Not that they would be of any use in DCS but, hey...

I hope later Hinds like the P we are getting can use S-24 too like the older ones did :p.

Having just sat in a Mi-24, I can tell you the engineer's seat is in a dark alcove directly behind the pilot's seat.

We will have fun working on this problem, the sheer destructive power of the dual (true) 30mils may compensate.


Dual door gunners on release will help me adjust.... help me real good.


if the weather is right... weapon reloads in the passenger cabin would also help me overcome the chin turret loss.
Belsimtek may say it ain't right but believe me, IRL ... there are plenty of rusky pilots that did it in Afghanistan.
