Post Gazelle Minigun

Hi everybody !
Is the Minigun version available on 2.5 ? I recently learned that there was a mini-gun variant for DCS but I can't find it in my game ... only L, M and Mistral !
Can anyone help me ?

No, the Minigun is a Gazelle variant on its own just like M, L and Mistral.

You need to be in the open beta, it became available in a previous update of OB

It's worth it just to get the Minigun version,..

Coupled with TrackIR for aiming, it makes for a rather unique experience, really quite jolly.

No way it's VR for me.

I have a mission with all Variants of the Gazelle in it.
I have just checked it in the ME where everything LOOKS proper for the Minigun version.

And yet I spawn into a usual "L" variant with the regular cannon and missile tubes (Empty).

There is NO Minigun Model in the current Update of DCS.

Furthermore Polychop ... PLEASE FIX the freaking SnapView Saves.
I am so sick and tired of modifying/customizing my Default View/Head Position/Seat Position (whatever you want to call it) every single time I jump into a cockpit. It is super frustrating.

Very strange I don't appear to have your problem:



Sirri Island PG latest version. Might be worth a repair Snowtiger, perhaps that will help Cheers.

I don't know what's up with that ?
This mission which includes the Minigun variant used to work fine.
I double checked that everything wanted is selected including the correct loadout, I have the "named aircraft" in the list of slots, but when I jump in the cockpit, I'm in an L model.

I guess I need to create a fresh mission with this model by itself.
If that works as it should, then my mission got corrupted somehow since just a few days ago. If I can get it to work as described, I'll first try to delete the model from my original mission and re-create the slot to see if that corrects the issue for me.

Thanks for the reply SUNTSAG

PS> I just remembered that I have been flying in the Stable Version of DCS, and only "Updated" to OpenBeta yesterday using the Updater to overwrite the stable version (due to SSD size restrictions).

So as mentioned above, but without starting a new mission, I just Deleted the original Minigun version and planted a new one and set it up.

That worked great.

So the Minigun version is working. It was just My Mission that somehow got corrupted ... but is now fixed and working properly again. Woohoo !

Now if only we could get Mouse Aiming for the minigun position. OR did I miss that in an update too ?
