Hospital (helicopter landing pads) in Caucasus?


Recommended Posts

I've finally taken the plunge and started helicopter training. Now that I can reasonably safely land the Huey and am starting to improve my accuracy, I was wondering if there are existing helicopter pads, especially for Hospitals, in DCS. I'm aware that I can add them in the form of some ships, oil rigs, or FARP. But if they already exist in-game, I'd love to look for them and try approaches. I know that Syria has a couple, but I'm kind of fond of Caucasus (Syria is drop dead beautiful, but Caucasus has seasons!) so if you have a list of locations for Helos to land; that would be much appreciated.

Apologies for the noobish question - does that server have a modified Caucasus map with hospitals? That does sound exciting! Do they allow Tyros like me crashing all over the place? My landings still aren't pretty, but I can walk away from most of them 🙂

Not n00b at all!
Sort of. They have added FARPS/Hospitals, and you fly around rescuing/transferring people/patients/other crashed pilots. You can even rescue yourself, if you survive your crash.
The server keeps track of what you do, but no penalties as far as I remember.
I'll look up the link to the thread.
It's actually a great way to get to know the map and learn to fly/hovering helicopters. All current helicopters are supported sans the Ka-50 for natural reasons.

Thanks all! I love it - I just found the Search and rescue server, ping looks good, so I'll try to hop in tonight to see what it has to offer. And I'll add some hospitals to my private maps for solo practice as well.

Just a quick follow-up: the Search and Rescue server is really, really impressive and fun. Of course it has real weather, meaning that I need to train some more with wind, and the SAR missions can be quite far apart (120 nm is an hour away in a Huey). I also need to practice my cold-start routine, but that's more on me 🙂

 

One observation that really made me happy: I see that the server offers pilot/instructor seats for the Gazelle. I thought that the Zelle's MP status was 'kaputt'. Has that changed? I would really love to multicrew that one with a friend of mine.
