Mi-24 "radar" and targeting fix
by
Ricnunes


Description:
The objective of this fix is to solve a problem related to the Mi-24 (all Russian and CDF variants) in which it wasn't possible to detect in the Mi-24 "radar" and lock targets at distances longer than 700-800 meters.

This is IMO a bug because:
    1- In real life the Mi-24 can detects targets longer than 800 meters using it's optical sensors (even if they are outdated)
    2- In ArmA2 a Mi-8 or Mi-17 can detect targets either by lock or either by it's "radar" kilometers away, much longer than the Mi-24. This is a but odd since the Mi-8 or Mi-17 don't even have optical targetting systems like the Mi-24 do.

Features:
With this fix, the Mi-24 (all Russian and CDF variants) will detect and lock targets at the same range as the Mi-8 or Mi-17 which oddly detects and lock targets at the same range as a Ka-52 for example in ArmA2.
The objective of this fix is to address the odd situation where a Mi-24 detects and lock targets at much shorter ranges than a Mi-8 or Mi-17 in ArmA2, giving better realism to the Mi-24 in ArmA2 and improving its fighting ability within the game.


Installation:
