UB-32 or B8V20 with fairing?

Recommended Posts

In the first image below, which is a grab from the Pre-order vid, are we looking at a UB-32 57mm Rocket Pod or a B8V20 80mm pod with a nose cone fairing. I think the later, which means we get the option to mount B8V20 with or without the nosecone fairing? Hopefully. More options = good.

 

I don't think we've seen a shot of the 57mm UB-32 pod at all. See the 2nd image below. Personally I prefer the look of the 57mm pods, even if they were said to be ineffective in real use.

 

The current 3D model of the UB-32 in game is looking dated, so maybe it's being updated before release and that's why we haven't seen it??

Pretty sure it's the pod for the S-8, just with the fairing (as used on fixed wing aircraft).

 

And yes the UB-32 is very dated, presumably it'll get a new model in due course - the UB-16 for the L-39 however, is pretty decent.

  B8 with fairing (B8M1) won't be available anymore upon release. It unintentionally ended up in the pre-order trailer. In real life B8M1 is not used on the Mi-24.

Не совсем понял причинно-следственную связь… сейчас в редакторе миссий для бота Ми-24В целеуказательные НАР С-8ЦМ прекрасно доступны и в блоках Б8В20-А (для DCS: Ка-50 и Ми-8МТВ2 – только в Б8В20-А).

 

на картинке в новостях - ребята-оформители этот М1 подвесили, т.к. МЕ позволяет (пока что). Это  наше упущение, просто недосмотрели - уберем!)))

OK thanks for that. Understandable, if a bit disappointing. The fairing version looks more elegant.

Ehh depends they had there use. When mercs where fighting with Mi-24s in Seirra Leone they used the S5 rockets the most. Though that was mostly because they had a lot of them compared to the S8 rockets.
