Improved Weapons Systems - Enhanced targeting of guided missiles.


This sounds interesting. Hope we see improvement over the simple tab lock system.
Manual guidance by the gunner is the way to go!

The Hind is certainly an excellent addition - personally I like to see TKOH open up to non Civilian gameplay.
But remember the game is so flexible to support both / many different ways to play it alongside just fine.

Our team's pilot likes to do EVAC or HOT insert missions most. :)



Current active projects: None :(

Maintained/assisted projects: IFA3, Blitzkrieg


Help: Got a crash? Report it! What is the RPT log file?

I hope that there will also be the 221st Attack Helicopter Squadron camouflage of the Czech Air Force:war:

No SP campaign? :<

Because it's too pricey for just skins and detailed cockpits
ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

Guess two years post-release aren't enough to make ArmA3 at least half as dumbed down.

Please BIS stick in the Takistan or preferably Chernarus map for those who don't have Arma, it's smaller + more place to hi(n)de then better for adversarial scenarios.

Depends on how detailed the cockpit is and what you can do with it, if for example Mi-24 weapon and visual systems are controlled by clicking switches in the cockpit and Mi-35 is done via MPD button, and the visual systems would be displayed in said screens then I'd have no issue forking over 20 someodd for that and a new weapon system plus the ability to turn what was for the most part a civilian game into a more military game.

Furthermore they released tools for us to add out own into TKOH before announcing this DLC so I'm more encouraged rather than feeling as though they would be denying modidng in order to squeeze the DLC savings. That said however technicly we have not yet seen these and as such I'll be waiting for purchase until we get some examples of how things look or behave with this.

SUPERHIND!, wow nice job BIS it looks good, finally a hind with a decent cannon. Those are INGWE missiles on there aswell :icon14: . Awesome even if the name is wrong, its just Superhind MkII, III, IV or V. Or Mi-24 Superhind, since most of them come from Mi-24s. Algeria and Azerbaijan are the only operators I know of.

This sounds interesting. Hope we see improvement over the simple tab lock system.
Manual guidance by the gunner is the way to go!


Well don't all Russian Hinds use SACLOS weapons which are commanded properly by gunner in Arma already(non-tab). For the Superhind, the INGWE is a SACLOS beam riding missile so should be no huge diff there. BUT they could give it the Mokopa, which is LOAL, LOBL with either Semi active laser, or Radar, or Imaging Infrared(So a like Hellfire and Javelin). It is also capable of using Hellfires aswell anyway. So maybe its in there.
