Like the helicopter operations, I appreciate the effort to incorporate them into missions. Did a little bit of AA crate placement the other evening using the Mi-8, I thought it was a nice feature to have as part of a mission much appreciated as I know it doesn't appeal to the majority of users on this server.

In the restricted missions, the MiG-21's should only be getting R-60's. Not R-60M's. Both are all aspect but the M's are much better. The response to this is shown below:

Same thing with the AIM-9P5 and the RB-74, etc. Comparing those with their predecessors shows the exact same results. I believe many make the mistake of comparing different weapons of different manufacturers with their various variants.
All planes, all cars, all vehicles, machines, electric devices, etc. have advantages and disadvantages over their counterparts. We can't just start trimming them down to get "balance" and please everyone, or so I believe.
Now if the reds are actually getting R-60M's and the blues are not getting AIM-9P5's, then that's a whole different story.

How in God's name did this rumour of the server including R-60M's while the restrictions are on even started? When have I ever done that?

When the restrictions are ON, R-60M's are OUT! And it ALWAYS has been like that. No replies needed, please.
Maybe it was a mere confusion on some players side after all. Happens...


S!

I played a game on Phone Booth where blue had access to AIM-9Ms but no P-5s or Rb74s, and the reds had access to R-60Ms. It's not a rumour, it's what happened.

On the mission "Chaos" still runs with weapon restrictions.

The numbers of weapons there are limited. I'll add more to the arsenals.

Any chance that we can get Su-25As added to all the missions that already have Su-25Ts? Open Range, for example.
