Default Rocket types on the Gazelle?

The SA342L variant of the Gazelle in DCS carries a rocket pod with 8 rockets. These are high-explosive types.


Did the real-life Gazelle ever carry other types of rockets? (I'm thinking smoke-marker rockets or illumination rockets?)

Have heard of a SA341B used by the British Army modified to carry 68mm SNEB rockets. A slightly large image of the Lebanese helicopter with said SNEB.

AFAIK SNEB has multiple warhead variants
  • HE
  • HEAT
  • Fragmentation
  • Smoke
  • Illumination
  • Flechette
  • Training (presumably inert or something)

Can't find much on them though

The rocket pod equipped to the DCS Gazelle looks to be a 68mm TDA Digital Rocket Launcher (Telson 8 ) that supports HE Impact, HE Multi-mode (light vehicle or air-burst), Target Marking/Training, Multi-frag (36 or 342 flechette) and laser guided rockets.



A number of different rocket types were displayed along side airshow Gazelle statics.



AFAIK only the Tiger has fired the SMPR (laser guided) rockets.
