Right. So me and EmBra had been into attack helicopters in PR for a while, and decided it was time to put together a "frag movie". Nothing that serious, mostly for teh lulz.

Most of the footage from each map is from a single round, with a few exceptions.

Its pretty high res, so fullscreen or DL is recommended.

Pilot: Zrix
Gunner: EmBra

Movie by EmBra.

Good shooting, I haven't mastered the new Missile system yet, liked the shot with the squad all together on the roof in North City :P Pilot was nice and smooth for a good shot.

Sweet, i love it. I was on that kashan round where you shot the tanks at the bunkers, i was standing at north bunker. I was also in the tank that the transport chopper wanted to ram...

It was a good round. Check my choppah vids :)

Heh, it was a wtf moment when I first saw you there.

Finding a complete squad like that, with a rallypoint and all... :mrgreen:
It's something you hear about but it never happens to yourself.

I can only imagine how it must have felt :duh:

The first movie, Muttrah City, took place at our server, Skyttegrav.se #1. And the times that I read, "Cobra is down" I was relieved. ;)

Great movies guys!

Nice vid, i was surprised about the lack of AA tho in almost every scene. There is only one the pilot actually needed to drop flares- Most time i play i get troubled by AA instead of cruising around that freely.

Even though it might look like we are cruising around freely we always try to stay behind our infantry and ask about AA-placements etc before we go in.
We try to keep the helicopter as a support vehicle and defend flags on our side of the line rather than using it as an "attack"-helicopter behind the enemy line.
When we do go in on the enemy side of the line we usually drop flares continually to make it harder for the enemy to get a lock on us.

Mobile AAs are a pain though because no one really knows where they are from time to time and I can assure you that we have to drop flares quite frequently even though it might not look like it on the video.

Another thing that we try to do is to keep the helicopter moving at all times mainly because of HAT being used as a guided AA-Weapon, but also because it's faster to do evasive manoeuvres if we are taking fire or being locked by a AA-missile.
This makes it harder for the gunner to hit the target but it's better to shoot twice and live then to go down due to an APC or HAT shooting at us and then have to wait 20 minutes for the helicopter to respawn.

It all boils down to communication, between me, as the gunner and Zrix, as the pilot but also between us and the rest of our team.

Guys that mark targets with laser really really helps in every situation.

J.A get ya a** in stir and join our server! We can take some heavy duty anti Zrix/EmBra-kit and grease 'em. ;) If they are enemies, I will add.

@ Zrix/EmBra - was it Vegas that you used to edit the Fraps file?
I've watched that clip as it was pr0n... Amazingly nice.

The only one I remember the name of that we played on is Skyttegrav, kindly hosted by mr Magrioteli here.
Unfortunately, it doesnt have BR. And neither does many of the servers that run enough chopper maps to be worth visiting - So we are in the same position as you I'm afraid.

It should be added that only the intro is from BR, the rest is live(well..) first person footage from EmBra's gunner seat.




Wewt, 700 posts :P

Good one. I did a kind of similar round in yesterday. We had the Apache alive from first spawn until we won. Not that many kills than you had, thought. :-)

Off Topic: I can turn on Battlerecorder (however I have to stop the server first, and it almost never empty. Unless when I'm asleep). Sadly Battlerecorder consumes much more bandwidth. That's for sure! That is the reason we've chosen not to have a public Battlerecorder as for now. Purely to avoid lag on our servers!
If we will get some more bandwidth in the future there might be an option for a permanent (public) Battlerecorder via FTP or http://


On the other hand, that superb movie came from Fraps.
I still wonder: Was it edited in Vegas? (Zrix told me once, but....)
And which FPS do you use in Fraps, Mr. EmBra?

Yes and I captured the scenes at 30 fps.

I like the pilots that actually stay still when you are trying to shoot.
You mustve been playin with choppers for a pretty long time.

Thanks EmBra!

By the way, Battlerecorder (quality 5 of 10) is activated on Skyttegrav.se #1 PR 0.85 AAS & INS - 80.73.49.108:16567 - but since we don't have any public download (due to bandwidth lack) you have to send me a PM or grab me at XFire so I can upload the file at my ISP's host. (That is located in Sweden: "Bredbandsbolaget - BOX"
I must add that the PR-demos often are between 70 MB and 150 MB in this quality, and of course depening on the length of the game.

Don't fly high. It's a common mistake, and an AH's job is to get in, hit specified target then get out. Not go search n destroy. But otherwise good.

Also what's that IMO weird song at 1:13?

EmBra
2009-04-12, 13:28
Without going in to much on reasons, we fly the way we do because of risk vs. reward.

Regarding the weird song, I don't really know what you mean, there is no new song at 1:13.


I would also like to thank everyone for the warm and encouraging comments, both on these forums and online on the servers :D
It makes us really happy to see that you like the video.

Amazing skills up there lads, ( I wish i could fly that good :( ) You can instantly tell whether your a good pilot or not from the first parts of the film, and great gunning as well. Being a crew on an attacking Choper is very demanding for both people, so good job !

Being a attack chopper crew is the hardest job in PR.

Especially when you control the battlefield. Have the most firepower on the map. Have the best vantage point. One false move and you are waiting at main for 20 min while your team may be getting slaughtered. I think the thing lacking from AH crews is a experienced spotter with a keen sense of where to position himself to view the best and help his team out. The chopper cannot expose himself too long as there are many ways to be taken out. You know, gravity well generators (trees), tank shells flying around, AA (stationary, infantry kit, armor) jets, other attack choppers) A person on the ground needs to have a view to communicate with the pilot/gunner what it is and where. Identifying where friendlies are and take care around those areas to identify who is who. I've seen too many gunners shooting at friendlies, its saddens me. :(

Organize priorities of targets(which to take out first to help others and self protection) You also need to know attack direction if there is a hill or building in the way. That way that hellfire you just shot through the fog at the laser target does not get blocked. There is a bunch of stuff that needs to be decided on the way to the target, as a gunner I usually coordinate that with my pilot so we both know what is happening/what we are looking for. so yes, it is possibly the hardest job :D I fully agree.

A bit off topic here, but anyways, its a shame people cant directly talk to people in the air via VOIP, that would make the spotting targets job alot easier, and less friendly deaths from Chopper fire, which we all see from time to time. ( Its a shame not every server and player uses Mumble)

I wish the lazed target would show up on our overview as well. As a a-chopper team we want to be able to place our own markers to see if what we see are blue or red (when we are looking for targets ourself). that way a spotter will not be able to place markers that we can see, even if he is in the same squad. As it is now, the guy lazing will have to tell us in what keypad the target is and from which direction we have to approach.

Needless to say this doesn't work 19 out of 20 times since the spotter is either lazy, or simply doesn't know what to do.

Making lazed targets appear on overview, or in the 3d view or in any other way would make it a lot easier for those of us in the sky ;)

Bett they do, but now I know how it looks when the keep on pressing LMB, and the laser never settles on the target. Will definitely remember that from now on :)

Even an approximate laser is good enough...I'm a big fan of the "Aurora Theory" (get coords, go in all guns/rockets blazing, and get out)

For those who haven't played CnC Generals, the Aurora is a super-fast plane that can't be hit by anything until it drops it's bomb.

Hmm yeah, then when it returns to base it gets shot down by the dozen Stinger sites it flew over earlier, you got a hole in the plan there.

I have an Nvidia 8800GT and use 1680x1050 resolution.

The flickering occurs when looking at that stuff at range. doesn't see it close in.

We saw a lot of action in that round :) went back and fourth but eventually we lost anyway if I remember correct :sad:
