Post news RSS Mission helicopter concept

After quite a long break here I am again with some updates. I just want to say to bf2 community and my few followers that SIB development is up again and that I finally gave shape to one of the wished element of the mod.

Posted by on

While playing bf2 and its mods I always thought that available vehicles missed something. While you could find two ore more interesting attack helicopters, enthusiasm fell down regarding transport choppers. Their poor armament and limited players seats made them too weak and almost useless. Some mods introduced nice versions, increasing the number of seats from 6 to 8 and adding armament to vanilla uh60, mi17 and z8. Still they missed what I needed for my mod: those Multimission Helicopters which play a key role in special forces activities all around the world. After having collected much info and pictures over the internet, I started testing and mesh hacking so to realize something new..

Here you are SIB mission helicopters main features:
can take up to 8 players;
Critical damage is set so that players/bots have enough the time to leave the vehicle BEFORE it explodes;
SIB settings projectiles and hitpoints make these helicopters much stronger than most vehicles and more resistent to HMG or LMG firing (in bf2 vanilla you could take down a mi17 or uh60 with no much effort);
the heavy armament (versions with rocket launchers), make them very powerful assets ingame;
(AI) BOT soldiers bail out close to CP but don’t crash with each other (this often caused bots killing each other!);
(AI) BOT pilot doesn’t leave the vehicle on CP and keeps attacking enemy vehicles/soldiers, providing good support to ground units.

Words apart, let’s make pictures show some of the reached progresses.

Looks cool, haven't seen gun pods on a helicopter like that.

Gun-pods are actually existent in real world counterparts... And this is the reason why I included them. You can search google to find several pics about that. In all cases also the xpak 2 she_ec635 has gun-pods as its unique armament.. Thanks for your interest.

Very interesting concept. I also don't know that I have seen gun-pods on lots of transport choppers either, but it looks awesome.
