I believe the Cobra in OFP was either the AH1-Q or AH1G Model, not sure. I'm leaning towards Q but it's hard to tell.

yeah thanks for clearing it up, for some reason I had the "s" version on my mind, but I knew that it was the wrong variant. :)

The AH-1S and AH-1F are identical: The AH-1S was renamed to AH-1F in the late 80s. So in 1985 AH-1S is the correct designation.

EDIT: Somehow Wikipedia says something different...

FLv*VeNoM* :

hind is from RKSL and EricM, so credits go to them, i just make some recolours and national symbols of East Germany and Poland

thanx to people who wrote here, i know how to rename Cobra, cause i am not west equipment specialist, so i will try in free time to make changes in model of Cobra, like i made changes in Abrams' models and Bradley's

MERDC will be made too, but curently numbers of units is big and more important are missions to play, cause we are working on missions pack and testing it

missions are soon to be released

as i will find some time for sure i will change Cobra model

now i know that BIS made SuperCobra twin engine, while 85 should be one engine, so i will remodel it to one engine

in missions we can use HWM AH64 and UH1 addons as they were released, as they are super, without need to do our own Apache

now planes are the same as few weeks before:

- missions

- missions

- Russian Federation camo bonus (some ifv and tanks in 2 types of Russian camo)

- Marder

- more cilivilians and guerillas

Don't mix things up!

The Huey still in service with the Marines is a completly different bird from the one the Army used, while the Marine one has two engines the Army ones had only one (to point out the most obvious visual difference). Besides that, as vilas already said the HWM Team has made a superb Huey, that fits perfectly for early to mid 1980s scenarios.

(Although the Blackhawk was already in service, I don't think all those UH1s disappeared over night.)

Hi, I'm german and was in service in the german Bundeswehr in 1999. My father was in the 1970's Soldier there and was driven the 630 truck. But here are some minor bugs:

Why are german tanks (Leo 1) so green? The former versions were better. The Bundeswehr color till 1984 was oliv drab.

The Leopard 2 in camo has a wrong symbol on the right front mudgard, it stands for Panzergrenadiers (it is used on the Marder).

Leopard pz.gif

Marder pzgren.gif

M109 pzari.gif

Jaguar pzjg-rak.gif

German tankcrew in the 1980's worn black baretts with hatpin pz.jpg and headgears. Not the modern caps like today.

Also german tanks had number plates on front and back and a MLC (yellow on olive and black/grey on camo) for the weight on the front.

Hello Vilas!

Like your P85 mod with all the great stuff in it. However i was wondering if you were thinking of adding Dampers/shocks to the vehicles in the future? I notice in missions with AI using the vehicles that they flip over much much more often compared to working shocks on vehicles.

Cheers

Alex

I'm NOT mixing anything up. You're mixing up marine and army helicopters, not me. You're making comparisons to army Hueys for absolutely NO reason.

The marines have used a variety of Hueys; both single and twin engine varieties. The UH-1N TWIN engine huey was first flown in 1969 and is still in service today. Explain why that makes it unsuitable for a 1985 mod? Do some reading mate.

Project 85 includes Marines. FACT.

In 1985 Marines flew UH-1N TWIN ENGINE Hueys. FACT.

There's an historical basis for including a Marine Huey in project 85. FACT.

It's upto Vilas to model whatever he wants. FACT.

Cheers

Hehe,

the choice of the term 'mix up' was not a wise one, again. (I'm good at that, choosing the wrong words I mean)

What I tried to say with my post is that there are differences between the versions the US Army and the US Marines used during that period. So, one Huey model simply won't do.

I didn't know that you meant only and realy only the Marines version, but alot of people I've talked to, always mix them up, so it has become kind of a natural reaction when I hear the word Huey. I have to further admit, that I was still a bit distracted by another previous post that asked about Hueys for this mod, that's why I brought in the HWM team.

"There's an historical basis for including a Marine Huey in project 85. FACT." - True, however the PRACS Mod has one already.

so my apologies, if you were offended by what I said

FACT I never said Vilas should make a huey and I never said that we must have one.

FACT you didn't read the last line i wrote where I said Vilas can model whatever he wants.

Then what is the point of discussing the Huey?

I replied to the idea that blackhawk replaced all Hueys.

what about huney elicopters UH-1 ??

Hi Vilas,

any chance to add amphibious ability to your lav-25? That would be very handy for amphibious assault mission, and want to let ya know it's capable to reach 10.5km/h(6miles/h) max in the water.

also when turning, the four front wheels should turn together, right now on your lav only 2 front wheels will turn.

there's also a shadow bug on the wheels, the shadow doesn't turn with wheels.

it seems there's no suspension/dumper effect, not a big deal though.

hope you can fix those bugs with later update, appreciate your hard work!

Hey, like your addons but I'm getting a CTD with "vil_wpnmancrewru_2" being the reason. Any suggestions?
