Mi-24p Armament

I noticed that not every single round fired from the cannon is a tracer now. I assume that's by design? Haven't had the chance to test the mixed belts against infantry but it's a welcome change, so well done Eagle Dynamics. 

Specs: Win10, i9-9900KF@5Ghz, 32GB DDR4 RAM 3200XMP, 1 TB M2 NVMe SSD, KFA2 RTX3090, VR G2 Headset, Warthog Throttle+Saitek Pedals+MSFFB2  Joystick.

Well 4 ball 1 trace is very common in Western militaries, but of course there will be exceptions here and there. No idea about Vulcan equiped 20mm's though. And the Bradley IFV has two feed belts at the same time. I think they just press 1 button for belt 1 and a different button for the second belt... that way they can pick and choose what munitions they dispense, at the press of a button... thin skin, HE, thick armor or brick wall, AP rounds... 

 

That's an interesting mix for the HIND's gunpods, but kinda makes sense, as you probably want to do "one pass hit the gas", or at least only a couple of straffing runs before leaving the threat zone.

Hi@all,

Have any of you ever managed to get an enemy helicopter out of the sky with the new 9M220O? I tried AI Petrovich, he didn't even lock the target. I think it was up to me, maybe I had forgotten something. But i think that the update yesterday brought really huge advances. Generally and not just for my beloved Mi-24. Just great!

The target was an OH-58. And it was within reach to take it from the sky with ungided rockets. I had set the switches to automatic and sync was active. It was shown a green and yellow light in the panel. But i hadn't heard an intrusion tone. Also, there was not a text that Petrovich locked on to the OH-58 (shouldn't that actually come?) Is there something else I don't understand correctly?

Tell Pete to look at area below helicopter and he will lock him up. Even before, with shturm you could have engaged helos. As long as they don`t do some sudden alt change or crazy maneuvering it will hit. With proxy fuze ataka hit % just got higher.

9M120O seems to be effective against light armoured targets in DCS. Even kills Bradley. Using regular 9M120 is only for tanks. 9M120F seems pointless.

9M120F should be more effective against buildings... and should also be able to damage light armoured vehicles quite effectively... 28% more warhead should be noticeable in its effects.

That said I was able to fire the 9M120O and 9M120 from the outer hardpoints, but not the 9M120F from the inner ones... if it never leaves the tube it isn't going to have a use. Petrovitch wasn't cooperating though.

Works fine on my side. 9M120 outer pylons and 9M120F inner pylons. You can also command Petrovich which type of missile to select with the petrovich menu right short command, see pictures below.

It is not pointless. F has 7.4kg warhead, O has 5.4kg. Way better for unarmored targets like infantry

Actually F is T-baric so tnt equivalent should be like 10 kg. However without much fragmentation.

Just a thought:

Maybe you were TOO CLOSE.

If you could tag him with basic rockets... your target was probably half a klick away maybe? 

AFAIK, these wireguided ATGM types are... well they are not supermaneuverable nor "smart". Missle wise they are kinda the opposite of say a Python 5, I think they have a very narrow engagement arc, so if you are too far off boresight it'll either not get fired by Mr. Petro, or it might well fail to get a solid hit, might even lose aerodynamic control and just "tumble". 

 

They also seem to need quite a bit of time to "settle" and go straight to the target, maybe a half second of flight before it properly gets sorted out. That time/distance probably determins the minimum effective fireing range, which closer than, would result in a probable wasted ATGM. 

It's worth remembering, that whole class of ATGM's were not meant to be super-weapons, but rather "good enough" divided by "cheap as dirt", so you'd have enough to blunt several armored divisions, even with misses, lot's of unit attrition, exhausted gunners on their 3rd day without sleep having trouble remembering what their task was... I would imagine that while using ATGM's on helis has happened in real life and certainly effective, ensuring success probably requires near optimum conditions with experienced gunner who is alert and disciplined to work the problem.
