Like you said, if the system is working, it will fire off the first bottle automatically. You could fire it off manually if you know there is a fire but for some reason the bottle didn't go off, but the primary use of the 4 main bottle buttons is to test the system. For example, there is a test where you disconnect the squibs from the fire bottles and connect the squibs to a multimeter, then push the buttons and make sure you get voltage to the squibs.

I appreciate the confidence, but keep in mind that I did this documentation as part of my real life my job to help train new mechanics. I have no access to to weapon system documentation, and where I work, we only use American radios (ARC-210, Bendix King, etc.) and nav systems (Garmin GPS and Universal FMS).

Wow, I'm impressed Alpha! Good job!

EDIT: Finally I understand the complex workings of the Fire Ext system in the Mi-8

Yep, I have all of those.

EDIT: Well, I never actually finished the electrical system, but that's okay because my documentation is for an Mi-17V-5 or Mi-8AMT series, which has a slightly different electrical system.

So where's your systems & texture mod to support the ARC-210 version 4 in our Hip?

I'm waiting patiently...

Guilty on all accounts.

I guess I won't be able to memorize all that information, but it's a great overview, thx a lot for sharing!
