Any more armament systems planned?

Nope.. nothing else will be added as far as weapons go. They will be adding the M-134 minigun as a door gun option tho:gun_rifle:

 

Also they will be adding a flare/chaff system as well as a radar altimeter

 

But as far as adding guided missiles it won't be happening. The real Huey has never used these systems. (Besides a few experimental Hueys outfitted with wire-guided missiles). Even the current day Venom is outfitted with door guns and unguided rockets.

 

EDIT: The Venom can also be fitted with the APKWS laser guided missile. It is basically a guided Hydra 70

 

The Cobra was the chopper that received all the advancements in weapons.

 

 

 

Hopefully Belsimtek will give us a Cobra someday :thumbup:

Can't wait for the radar altimeter..... will be very nice to have. The mini should be nice too. When I get shot down it's usually a mig using guns or ground based AA guns.... chaff and flares prob won't help a lot with those.

That would be a interesting weapon.

 

What puzzles me is that if will be possible to carry rockets only WITHOUT the frontal hardpoints.

I don't understand anything in russian except Davai Davai!

I'm just getting my information from what Belsimtek has posted and commented on.

 

Here is your Huey porn:

These systems are really cool and interesting, but I highly doubt they will be touched. They aren't what I would consider "normal" weapons on the Huey. (opinion only). While I agree that some of these systems are cool, I am 100% satisfied with the systems we have, as well as the minigun added for the door gunners.

 

I personally would rather have them spend their time working on another Helo (Cobra?!) or something similar, then implementing every system ever developed for the Huey. Some of these systems I feel were experimental.

 

Here is a list of even more weapons:

Side mounted M-60s...... yes please.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

The 40 mm GL (genade launcher) was for the B,C, F, M, P models (Bell 204s). If mounted in the D or H Models (Bell 205) would throw the Center of Gravity too far forward. 40 MM Grenade Launcher on the nose was never put on the D or the H models. Or at least I have never seen it.
