Default Remove the New Hydra rocket deviation

Hello Guys,
I used to be a very good attack huey pilot, I used to last for the whole round nad get more than 30 kills and I used to kill a lot of enemy APCs in Muttrah.
But now after adding the new deviation system, It is impossible to kill in apc with your 14 hydra in one strafe.
I have asked everyone flying an attack huey that I saw so far about it and they said that they arent impressed, neither I am
So please can you remove it in 0.9????
PS: I searched for something similiar to this topic but found nothing.

Thanks,
Rudy,

Learn to cope and learn to aim, the deviation isn't that bad if you get used to it and it feels more real.

Thanks but I have learned to aim but the 4th or 5th missile willl hit really far away from where you are aiming and...

"If you can't kill it, leave it alone or it will kill you"
Naaah it wont, I can still easilly avoid AAs and APCs

PS: Yesterday I was playing muttrah as MEC as an APC gunner and so the cobra hovering next to me so I killed it, But I wont be able to kill an attach huey doing flips and going upside down

I managed to do it once on jabal, but that was luck tbh, rockets are really area effect weapons.

Well the hydras have more realistic deviation (its a bit high), but they are missing realistic damage and fragmentation, which should be about half of a 155mm shell.

Rudy,
Provide sources that this is not realistic.


The DEVs are not going to put something back just because you cant hit anything. The hydras are very effective if used right.

They're still good for taking out infantry. You cant really use them as precision weapons anymore. Just area attack. You need a spotter to tell you where to shoot. You can still hit APC's but unlikely you will kill them.

the deviation is quite realistic even a bit too small!!!
the only thing that is unrealistic is the new speed.. ...
in simulation games like Lock On, hydra rockets fly 3-4M and not that HAT like its now in 0.86
