No. From dev FAQ: they're basically nonexistent in Russian Mi-24P models and are only used by export Mi-35P users.

You've seen UPK-23 pods on non P variants such as Mi-24D, Mi-24V, various export variants and those had innacurate 12,7mm gattling cannon which was good for infantry suppression and against soft targets, maybe some armor - so for those variants UPK-23 pod was introduced. Since Mi-24P already has way more powerful and accurate 30 mm cannon it simply did not justify for Russians to use them in tie with 30mm cannon.

Helicopters don't fly, they just subdue the air.

We have new variant with gsh23 in turret and still bought upk-23s. And even stranger, pods dont work together with main gun at the same time. I guess some operators like more dakka.  Since P has 30mm then guv pods dont make sense either.

Hi there guys !

 

How to select to the S-13 pods to work ? Im already familiar with the weapon system, i know how to fire the S-24s (whooaa man those are brutal) the UB-32 and the B-8 pods, but the S-13 pods wont work for me until now.

Are there any extra switches or buttons for them to get them working ? Tried to select them the way so the "ROCKETS" lamp was highlighted...

 

 Thanx !

Are you sure you're carrying a "legal" loadout? IE, they probably won't work if you're also carrying other rocket pod types, maybe the gun pods. Should work just fine with Shturm or if the only weapon mounted!

Okay thanks i got it now. So we can't use two different rocket pods at the same time right ?

Hi everybody, last week i am trying to get a good skill in guided missiles. I have made the same loadout that in the image, take off, ask for weapons ready, select a target propossed by Petrovich and the 4 first launchs works fine. Make a tone when aligned and i grant the launch and target is destroyed (4 missiles works fine).

 

My problem is with the next 4 missiles, that are same type the last ones. No tone appears to sound and i am not able to give Petrovich order to fire. I deselect target before a thight turn and then select a target, but only works for me in the first 4 missiles...Its looks like a i need to change the active pilon to the next 4 missiles but i am looking for more info and i havent found anything about this

 

Thanks In advance!

I'm having exact same issue, the inside ATGM's inner pylon will not lock or fire.
