Default How it Works: Mi-8 Fire Protection System

I was going to write a long post about this, but I already have presentations in PowerPoint that I wrote a few years ago, so I just converted it to a PDF and I'll attach it here. It may be more information than most of you are interested in, but I think that anyone interested in how this system works will find it useful.

Note that the presentation was created with the specific aircraft that I work with in mind, but for all practical purposes, the Mi-8MTV-2 in DCS is identical to the Mi-8MTV-1 as mentioned in the PDF (the "-2" is just an armed version of the "-1" after all).

Well my "real world" callsign is Cupcake, and I've been using this on my door instead of my name. I also bought the shirt, so I guess I'm just a walking advertisement for Johnny Cupcakes...

Outstanding! Thank you!

"It may be more information than most of you are interested in"- that might be true, but at least for me this kind of stuff adds so much to the whole experience and immersion. True, most of it is not relevant in DCS, but it makes it all so much more "real" ... to know what is going on behind the scenes, behind the panels ...

Is fire suppression then completely automatic? In what situation would I need to manually suppress a fire?

I guess you could call it partially automated. The first bottle will be fired upon receiving the fire warning.
The second bottle has to be fired manually, in case the first bottle (and probably also additional methods like cutting of fuel) doesn't put out the fire.

I guess the 4 buttons to fire the primary bottle serve as a backup (i.e. If it isn't fired automatically (not sure how far thats possible though)) and they might possibly also be used in a case where there could be the signs for a fire in a specific apartment (smoke?), without the fire warning having been trighered yet.
