When they fly over the forest my first thought was "Why don't they fly lower?", second thought was "Oh yeah, the trees has a collision model"

Once I cash my paycheck, god damn it. I love all Russian military aircraft, and my pockets know it.

Not really any action but still pretty cool.



Now you know what to do when you crash your Mi-8 at yet another failed landing.

I love the ingame sound, imho it has the best sound from all of the DCS modules, incredible work BST guys!!!!

Compare it to this great video of Czech private modernised Mi-8T. I posted it already somewhere else, but it is worth it to post it again

Wow ! Great documentary. Very impressive aircraft for sure if you weren't already convinced.

Edit: Just finished watching the second part which focused primarily on the Mi-8 in combat. Amazing machine. I want the rear ramp, wide side cargo door, "door" gunners, anti tank missiles..........

And would also be great to see both the Mi-8 and Huey capable of offloading troops from a hover without landing in rough terrain.... well we can wish can't we ?

I've created one little mission where I put many targets on the ground and now I work hard for destroy all these target with the Mi-8 and its gun machines, a real pleasure to fly with this "module", Belsimtek has created one incredible helicopter.
