Interesting! This makes sense of the scenes in "Afghan Breakdown". Do you know where one could read up more on the Mi-8 + Mi-24 teams and how they operated?

EDIT: Just saw your post on the thread asking for the Mi 8/17 books!

Is the Mi-24 being worked on alongside the F-4, or is it coming out afterwards? I'm looking forward to both.

From what I have read they are being developed alongside each other.

In parallel we continue our work on exciting project for fans of combat helicopters - the attack helicopter Mi-24P (was a long time since we pleased our helicopter enthusiasts, and ourselves as developers, by a war machine with rotor dynamics).
Also we started development of the famous fighter-bomber F-4E
Yes, and from this post on their website it looks like the Mi-24 is in a further state as the F-4E, as they were 'continuing' work on the Mi and only 'started' the F-4 at that time. But only time can tell...

It's my understanding they've been working on the Hind off and on since the Huey and Mi-8 were released back in 2013. The F-4E seems to have only just been started. Honestly, I'm a bit surprised they announced the F-4E this early. Normally they keep their projects a secret or at least an open secret pretty much up until a week or two before the buy page goes up. In any case, I'm sure they are working on them in parallel. Can't really program the cockpit till the 3d cockpit models are ready*, so while the Hind is being coded, the art team can work on something else. That's how it works for the whole project and any software development project in general. Everything is pipelined.

*The code can technically be written, but it isn't possible to properly test it in game until the 3d models are in place. So that kind of thing tends to be a waste of time in my limited experience. Obviously one could use placeholders, but that's just more stuff for the art team to make.

Pure supposition on my part, but they may even have some team members who specialise in either fixed wing of rotor FM dynamics, and those could be operating in parallel - Mi-8 while the other guys work on the F-18, & if the F-18 FM work is winding down as it gets ready for early release, then transfer that knowledge to the F-4.

Dont forget the multicrew and crew AI hats. They'd be bouncing between both projects fairly constantly.

That was kind of obvious.
Even next year is uncertain.
