Ok, give a shot to this;

Copy the attached Description.lua in:

\DCS World\Bazar\Liveries\mi-8mt\USA_AFG

(remember to backup original file)

After in the mission editor create USA Mi-8, with hardpoints and Gunner loadout only.

Choose "438th Air Expeditionary Wing" livery for it.

I am just adding this line of code after the country selection

custom_args = { [1000] = 1.0, } --- Hide Harpoints Model

that is all.

Also, "magically" removes the gunsight model from the cockpit.
Just wondering, does it remove the gunsight even if no side door gunner is loaded?

Yes it does. But if you do not load any gunner, what is the point of using this tweak? Better to go with a no hardpoints configuration I guess

However, if you change to a livery (with hidden hardpoints) using ground crew inside the sim, and standard livery was loaded with hardpoints when spawned, it will remove hardpoints visibility but not the gunsight.

So gunsight and hardpoints will be hidden if Mi-8 spawns with the livery that has the tweak in its lua.

I hope is clear somehow :]

Might be true. I admit I always thought the gunsight is always present regardless of hardpoints, never possible to get a "civilian" chopper in that respect. But your answer made me doubt that. Will check. Thanks.

Edit:
Yes, I was wrong, the sight is removed with the hardpoints.
Still, thanks for your contribution!

This works for the UH-1H as well!
Same code, same procedure, same result, with the added downside that the side guns are hanging in the air...

Sorry for spamming (3 posts in a row), but I reposted this thread in the dedicated Mi-8 subforum since the Belsimtek subforum isn't officially active and not visible/searchable from within forums.eagle.ru.
