i think, with a static gun, it is not much different from an armed mi-8.

Except for speed, armour, ATGM, much bigger gun than the Mi-8, systems, etc. I mean sure the original was a new cockpit jammed on the front of a Mi-8 :shrug:

Don't forget the VERY LARGE WINGS. I think there willbe pretty substantial differences, despite being a derivative, by this point it's been heavily altered.

Just still don't like about it. I already dislike heavily about the VR aiming in UH-1H co-pilot sight, as I would want to grab the sight grip and turn it around myself and then move my head to get the sight picture visible. This of course with the Touch Controller (or maybe even any stick).

As just by turning around with head and aiming around feels so cheating and bad anyways, it is like death vision.
I assume that you will aim using a regular axis or button mapping. Aiming using the be Headset would feel like cheating indeed. And I also guess that the sight will only be rendered on one eye of the VR headset because it is a monocular sight.

But I can’t think of another way to do it properly in VR. DCS can’t simulate the optical effect of looking through a scope. And even if it was possible, you would have to place your eye in the exact position without the help of the head rest that a real gunner would have...
One idea would be that you have to move your head close to the sight and only then you can go to the full screen view.

Sounds like a hummer car salesman quote ) yeah hind is hind but sometimes i don't understand ED's model choices. They decide to make an iconic aircraft but less effective version of it. maybe because of lack of sources i don't know. Wİth mi-8 and huey they could have done endless of variations and versions but they haven't done

btw, i think you can mount some atgm's to mi-8 also

For the Soviet the P-Model was a Upgrade, because the Yak Chin Gun didnt have enough Penetration Power to deal with any sort of Light Armor,

was prone to Jamm..


I am happy we get the P-Version anyday, after we didnt Fight that much Infantry in DCS, the 30mm have at least a Punch agianst Ground Vehicle..


After the major of Player still enjoy to fly SP Mission, how tell the AI currently what they have to shoot ...all in all DCS is not so far i would choose V-Variant



For example there is good Infantry Simulator, AR### still a pain to fly lonely the MI-24V Hind even the AI is much more superior to DCS...

Wonder if we could get that cockpit variation too.

Originally I thought the P model a strange choice, but after more experience I think I will take a big cannon over a little turret - and I get thoroughly lost in Hind variants but do the V carry anti-tank missiles?. Considering we spend most of our A2G time popping vehicles rather than troops it does seem like a better package. Ofc if they want to do a V too I'd also get it... Havoc as well.
