Default [REQUESTED]Request For Huey Upgrade (No Doors)

I have a question here for Wags or NineLine. When you guys release the Huey update, would it be possible to add a Huey that has no cockpit doors. It looks badass and helps out with sling loads if you have no doors as you can look straight down, but with the door on the aircraft your only choice is to open the door. I’m thinking just like the way the spitfire is where it’s a another model, almost exactly the same but with clipped wings, only this model would have no cockpit doors. Here’s a couple of pictures so you can see what I’m talking about. Let me know if You agree with me that this would be an cool feature for the Huey!

This would be a great feature for sling load pilots!
Maybe there is a way to add a doors/ no doors option to the rearming menu?

Agreed! You nailed it. I knew something was missing visually but could figure out what it was but you nailed it.

id also want a Huey upgrade to include a RWR since post Vietnam Army hueys had such capability (you can also see mounts spots the air frame within DCS 3d model where RWR sensors would be installed)











US army huey's had AN/APR39 RWR, but what former BST had modeled was something closely resembling the Aussie bushranger as opposed to US army Huey mode.

You guys need to remember...just because particular unit had a piece of equipment or system does not mean they all had it...or lacked it.

But it would be a good upgrade for our Huey in Combat situation

That is true Sierra, but the doors off isn’t a key component that will greatly alter the Huey. Not only that but doors off was and is pretty common to this day from the Vietnam War. Someone in a Facebook group said it best, even better than my idea, to make it an option in the Rearm menu, to be able to take the Hard-points and Doors off of the Huey, that way we can let the wind blow through our hair, and have a, “Slick” Huey for troop movements. I don’t know, just food for thought and would definitely make the Huey a lot cooler

No doors, and no hardpoints WITH door gunners would have been present from day 1, is time already to correct that lack.
