MI-28N defensive behaviour


Recommended Posts

When using the helicopter MI-28N in a ground attack scenario where there is a radar threat, you'll notice that the behaviour of the helicopter is completely bollocks.

 

With default settings, you'll see the helo aiming at a target, but then suddenly it goes into vertical evasion and starts to fly around like a chicken and becomes bazooke until it gets shot... So an mi-28N is able to shoot zero targets with default options...

 

A remedy for this is to give the helicopter a couple of options:

 

You can set the reaction to threat to:

-Passive defense. This is recommended when they fly through a threat zone but need to continue. Less good if they are aiming.... You'll see the helicopter dispensing flares but continue its route.

- Evade fire. This is recommended when you want to the helicopter to aim to the targets. When a SAM fires a missile, the helicopter will start evading the missile. But otherwise the helicopter will remain stable in the air while shooting targets.

 

I guess this applies to any helicopter that uses radar to determine the location of targets. Using the options in reaction to threat is a good way to influence the behavior of the helicopter when it feels attacked or when it detects targets.

I see that the MI-28N has received some love by ED.

The helicopters now engage with the cannons, which is great news! They didn't do that previously!
