Great work, I love the moving parts like the cargo door and landing gear, also the super detailed cockpit. I noticed one bug though, if you have soldiers inside and you choose All > Stop they jump out and sometimes get injured. It doesn't seem to happen if you choose All > Disembark.

Hmm certainly getout when choosing ALL>stop , crew team getout.
I think this is ARMA2 bug. BIS UH60 happens same thing too.
When getout, crew injuring is not happen at my PC.

Btw, I think my UH53E skin is too shiny.
So I think I'll reskin more dirty for next release :)

Ok, I got a chance to try it out in the editor, and as an enemy AA soldier, I shoot it down, but there is no explosion effect, no matter what height it falls from.
-At the same time, if it is at the start off height, just the "flying" setting under formation....the pilot never puts the gears down when I've shot it, and the rotors are still turning. I'll try to play around with this some more though.
-Next, for example, i just started climbing up with no foward speed, the altimeter in the box in the upper left hand side (the one that shows fuel, armor, etc.) never changes from 0. But...if you start moving foward, it will respond accordingly. Also happens when you land, then take off again at 0 foward velocity.
-I can get you some pics, especially one where when you run inside the cargo section, you can see where sunlight passes through (areas where it would obviously not be seen)
I love the work though, hope this helps out. This is not complaining by any means, and I'm open to the fact this could be all on my end. :)

wow, this is really awesome. i've been waiting for some form of 53.

i agree with the other posters, could be less shiny. also the size of the tail makes flying in 3rd person view very awkward, idk if this can be remedied.

what is the code for the init line to make the cargo door open on spawn?

great job, no errors or anything for me so far :yay:

This is really a nice addition to arma 2, filling out the Marine hardware with a true warhorse. I most humblely request you make a USAF Pave Low version as well. Please! Please!

WoW!! Great one!!:yay::yay:

this is I've waited for so long! But I found a little mistake in the model.

The Rotor don't move correctly.The position is not in the center. You can see this if you look from the top of the model.

I missing the fuel nose for the Sea Stallion as you can see on the image!!:confused:

But at all this is a great model. Is it possible to release some more tan textures for this??

Great addon, though may I ask to add a new sound for it and center the rotorblades. The flightmodel and sound is of a huey right?

It would be good if it flew a bit more sluggish, a bit more heavy! Now it has the feel of a light heli wich it is not! And please center the main rotor and take a bit off the shinning paintwork, make it a little weatherd! This is otherwise a VERY BEAUTIFUL heli, make a couple small updates to it and it is perfect! You do great work!!
Best regards.
