Default Helicopters- WP smoke rockets and Huey gunner positions

Okay so I searched threw every one of the suggested threads for these and didn't find any thing so if they have already been suggested I'm sorry. First are we going to see cobras with the ability to deploy long smoke screens to cover the lz for the Hueys, is that even possible? And are we going to see the attack Huey's having a gunner position that controls a m129 grenade launcher?





User Warned for Vague thread Title. Simply naming it Helicopters is not enough

I was going to post that the Cobra wasnt around at that time, but then I got smart and looked it up. And they were around, more in the mid 60's and above in the war. Their first flight was 1965. And the smoke screen should be possible because in Vanilla BF2, Tanks and APC's have the abbility to pop smoke. I dont know if it could be transfered to a helicopter though. And even then I dont know about the smoke ever being deployed like that.

At the risk of reviving an old thread, I think I understand what the OP was talking about, and I like the idea.

I think that the OP was referring to the M156 White Phosphorus Smoke Marker 2.75 in rocket.

This article is an overview of the air launched 2.75 in rocket system. About halfway down the page you will find the listing for the M156.

In game, this could be used for concealment of an LZ by deploying smoke at range. This could also be used as a target designation system, where an observation chopper fires a marker rocket at an area for follow on fire from another weapons platform, either a fixed wing strike, or gunship support for example.

At any rate, while the original post did not seem clear to me, I really like the idea, and think it has some merit. I wanted to add this information to further clarify.

Just some guy.

Biggest Issue could be server side lag as a result of calculating all the smoke in an area. If this isn't an issue I do like the idea and it could provide for some interesting strategies.

We tried some WP rockets once, didn?t test on a full server with millions of them but they worked really well for marking attacks for other aircraft or could do for smokescreen.

This is project reality: Vietnam, not project apocalypse now.

Just use 1 channel mumble and ask permission from admins to play music.
