New Mil Mi-8 AMTSh (Hip)
Posted in: Modeling
Posted 2018-09-18 at 07:46 by Hokunin

Hello Project Reality Community! Today I would like to show off one of the new assets I have been working on for a future PR release. With this particular developer blog focusing on work on one of the new Russian helicopter.



Mil Mi-8 AMTSh


I'd like to introduce you to the new modernized Mil Mi-8AMTSh (NATO reporting name "Hip"), transport and assault helicopter now widely used by the Russian Armed Forces. It is planned to replace the vanilla BF2 Mi-8 for the Russian forces ingame, and possibly added to Chinese forces in the future too.

This new version of the Mi-8 has a ramp and dolphin nose, though the ramp won't be openable in-game, since there is a gunner's seat on it and in real life, soldiers use side door for disembarking anyways. It will have a total of three gunners: two on sides and the one on the back, so you will have most of the perimeter covered.

Naturally, Mi-8 will have an unarmed transport version and armed attack version with up to 120 unguided S8 rockets mounted on its hardpoints.

The model and textures are practically finished, but it still has to be export to the engine, full coding and extensive QA. This can take considerable time, so you will probably have to wait a bit longer until you can take this chopper for a spin, so don't expect it to be in the next release, but rest assured it will be in a future one!

But this is not all, there is another new Russian helicopter that I have been working on that we will showcase later on so keep your eyes peeled!

Cheers,
- Hokunin

    yeah, but I believe later on other variations could be introduced with cannons instead of some of the rocket pods or something.

    Any map that version would go on would have to be balanced in some way, most likely with really good AAVs to counter it as yes, 120 rockets coming down on one's head might give you a bit of a headake but as said in the OP, its "up to 120 rockets" so will probably have fewer pods and as Hokunin said, MGs instead of some of them in most cases but ye, its up to the mapper on what versions and how it's used and making sure the end result is balanced

    So what do we call this new one? Obviously we can't use "hip" or "cow"?

    With the ramp should it now be classified as a "heavy lift" heli with 2 crates instead of 1?

    how about having gun pod and rocket pod too ?! with a reasonable amount of ammo for Balance

    What class a chopper comes into mainly comes down to it's lifting capacity (hence the name, light/medium/heavy lift), and this new version can only lift a little bit more than the old version, (max takeoff weight minus empty weight = 5,840kg) which is still almost half the amount of the Chinook's lifting capacity (11,532kg).

    Also the old Mi-8 had a ramp too, it just wasn't modelled on, and the Merlin has a ramp as well and is a medium-lift too, the list goes on

    That was what we said was a possible future combination...
