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

    This is freaking awsome!!!
    How will be the handling? Will it be like the COW before the patch?

    Is it gonna replace fully the Transport version? I imagine having the problema of wanting crates and wont be available due to TRANS-CAS -_-

    Dude...

    I think it is obvious that this helupter will get the same treatment as the Sokol, a normal unarmed trans version and an armed CAS version. I also don't know why everyone is already crying about balance, when we already have the Hind-F with 128 80mm rockets and a fucking 30mm cannon plus ATGMs and it still gets easily shit on by AA and tanks, with tanks probably being the No.1 killer of it, since after an attack run it will inevitably end up at low altitude.

    In theory an armament such as this can be devastating, but in practise the helupter will barely get to use it longer than a few seconds because of all the threats present.
