Default Mil-24 Hind Lead-In

Belsimtek has produced a most beautiful version of the Mil-8 Hip and I think that is a perfect lead-in to modifying the airframe and produce an Mil-24 Hind.

I enjoy combat helicopters and no one else is producing or capable of producing an Mi-24 Hind but Belsimtek. This appears most obvious to me and I hope it is to Belsimtek as well. The likelihood of even remotely flying the Mi-24 Hind in DCS is 0%.

This helicopter has been featured prominently in the Afghan war and continues to server proudly but attention given to it is little to none presently. With the introduction of the Mi-8, I have simply enjoyed it and I am now asking for an official Mi-24 Hind from Belsimtek. The road from Mi-8 to Mi-24 can't be that difficult for a talented group of developers and, quite frankly, the model exists in DCS already. Spruce it up provide full fidelity and clickable model.

you probably wont see it before the AH-1 and before they (ED) bring support for multicrew.
the Mi-24 has Pilot/Gunner configuration and its not the same as the Huey or the Mi-8

i do agree with you in general , it would be a great frame to have in DCS.

Since ED posted screenshots of Mi-24 cockpit a few years ago (when were only LO: Flaming Cliffs 2 and Black Shark 1 out), you can trust me on this one - Mi-24 someday will be in DCS.

Actually, I've found it, the cockpit for WSO:

It's understandable enough to me, I can't read Russian very well either. Anyway, the interesting bit is, "under certain circumstances, the Mi-24 might be released before the Cobra". I might be reading too much into this, or I might be mistranslating this entirely, but it looks to me as if the Hind is at least being considered by BST, if not planned/in development.

I just wanted to give us something to speculate about and blow out of proportion. After all, the mods love that .

After spending last night flying the Mi-8, the idea that Belsimtek are developing the Hind and the Cobra makes me very, very happy indeed.

It was also interesting (according to my interpretation of the horrendous Google translation) that Pilot Mi-8 seems to think that the Mig-15 is the most deeply modeled module to date.

Good times!
