DCS: Mi-24P HIND Mini updates


Recommended Posts


Welcome to this first instruction video for our upcoming Mil-24P for DCS World, developed by Eagle Dynamics. Given the codename Hind F by NATO and called the Flying Tank by its aircrews, the Mil-24 is a backbone of the Russian attack helicopter force since the early 1970s, and it serves with many countries. The HIND was most notable for its operations in Afghanistan by Soviet forces.

In addition to its primary role as an attack helicopter, the Hind also has a crew compartment for eight passengers. This functionality will come later in its development as part of a larger update to DCS World.

Derived from the Mil-8 helicopter, the Hind uses a tricycle landing gear, twin bubble canopy cockpits, an aerodynamics, narrow fuselage design, and lift-producing stub-wings with three attachment points each. Like the Mil-8, it has the distinctive double-engine intakes behind the pilot cockpit and a five-blade rotor system. Critical sections around the gear boxes and cockpit are armored against 12.7mm rounds with 4 to 6mm steel armor around the cockpits.

The Hind is a fast helicopter thanks to its retractable landing gear, narrow fuselage, powerful engines, and the 5- blade rotor system. This provides a general top speed of 335 kph, or 208 mph, with a service ceiling of 4,900 meters or 16,100 feet.

The two Isotov TV3-117VMA turboshaft engines, develope 2,200shp each. The internal fuel capacity is 1,770kg, and it provides a tactical radius of 176 km, or 96 nm, when loaded with two S-8 rocket pods, four ATGMs, and 250 30mm rounds.

With four external fuel tanks, it has a ferry range of up to 950 km, or 519 nm.

Let’s now talk about the weapons of the Hind. While most of these will be available at early access launch, some, like the R-60M, will become available during the early access period.

• A twin-barrel 30mm autocannon with 250 rounds.
• Unguided rocket types include S-5 55mm, S-8 80mm, S-13 122mm, and S-24B 24cm.
• Both 9M114 "Shturm-V" and 9M120 "Ataka" anti-tank guided missiles.
• 100-, 250-, and 500-kilogram bombs.
• KMGU dispensers.
• 12.7- and 7.62mm gun pods.
• 30mm grenade launchers.
• The R-60M air-to-air missile.

Raduga-Sh optical sight is used by the front-seat pilot-operator to employ the anti-tank guided missiles.
Upon missile launch, the Hind can maneuver +/- 60-degrees in azimuth and +/- 30-degrees of roll from the target. The SPO-10 radar warning receiver alerts the pilot or radar-guided threats. The Mil-24P is equipped with the ASO-2V chaff and flare dispenser system that has up to 192 expendables in 2x3 sets with 32 shells in each set.

In this DCS: Mil-24P Hind instruction video, we’ll learn a greatly abbreviated start procedure to bring a cold and dark Hind to life. Later in development once all the little details like fire tests, vibration tests, voltage tests, and so on are fully implemented, I’ll do a second “by the book” start up procedure video. In the meantime, this will get you up and flying at early access release.

Please note that this video is based on a work-in-progress version and may differ from the early access release version. However, the core items should stay unchanged.

In the video description notes I have included the key commands for functions I’ll use that cannot be accessed through a mouse-click.

Key Commands:

Wheel Brakes = w
Throttle Up = RCTRL Home
Throttle Down = RCTRL + End

In this DCS: Mil-24P video, we’ll explore how to hover, taxi, and takeoff in the Hind. There are several variants of these that we’ll review, and these are based on the actual Mil-24P flight manual. Although there are by-the-book procedures, you may find procedures that work best for you. These are some of the most challenging things you can do in a helicopter, but you also get a great sense of pride and accomplishment once you have mastered them.

In this DCS Mil-24P video, we’ll review use of unguided weapons in the Hind.

This includes the 30mm cannon, rockets, and GUV machine gun pods. Later, we’ll explore bombs, submunitions dispenser, grenade pod, and other rockets.

For the 30mm cannon, S-5 and S-8 rockets, and the GUV machine gun pods, a continuously computer impact point can be displayed on the ASP-17 gunsight for excellent accuracy.

All other weapons are based on manual-sighting, but you can receive optimal range data for some like the S-13 and S-24 rockets. When matching the weapon against the selected target, the weapons can be devastating against unarmored and lightly armored targets.

In this DCS: Mil-24P video, we’ll explore use of the 9M114 Shturm anti-tank guided missile, or ATGM. During the early access period, we will also add the high-explosive warhead version of the Shturm and the more powerful 9M120 Ataka ATGM. 
 

Delivery of ATGMs in the Hind can either be done through the operator station using the Raduga, daylight, optical sight, or from the pilot seat using Patrovich AI.

The Shturm and Ataka are effective weapon systems against armored vehicles like main battle tanks, but much depends on the angle of attack, and it may take more than one shot to score a kill. Maximum engagement is range is between 4.5 to 5.5 klicks, based on launch conditions.
