After the fantastic Huey Belsimtek could release DCS: FamilyVan and I'd buy it.

So the Mi-17 is a modified Mi-8. The version we're getting is an Mi-8. Are there any plans to offer an Mi-17 in the future or any reasons you decided not to? I'm guessing the Mi-8 would be a great start point to building the Mi-17. Don't get me wrong, I'm really excited about the 8. I just love the idea of being able to get variations.

The Mi-17 is just the export version of the Mi-8MT.

Ahh, thats interesting. Sorry, I wasn't aware of that. Thanks.

In that case, how about other variations of the Mi-8/17? The Mi-8AMTSh for example? The ability to use Mi-24 weapons would be interesting. I reckon people would be willing to pay a small amount of a variation of a base they already own..

One thing I would really like is the ability to fire ATGMs. I don't know if there is a version of the MI-8 that can, though.
