Ok guys a little update. The Pumas are taking a bit longer than I thought. I will release 2 versions.
1. The AS330 PUMA version in Fire Force/COIN configuration with an FNMAG mounted on port side and capacity for 12 soldiers and 3 crew.
2. The South African uprated version of the PUMA named the ORYX in a CASAVAC/Search and Rescue configuration. Capacity 6 soldiers, 4 wounded, 2 crew. (Injured can heal at heli as well as arm and rearm). I am looking for a winch script to use with the ORYX. If anyone knows of such a script please inform us.
Here is a screen of the PUMA before I start applying normal maps and fresnel glass. Will also add proper damage extures and wear and tear.
This one is in the colours of the SAAF no 19 Squadron (1984)



I am including a hi res internal texture for the PILOT VIEW and will include animated cargo doors and wheels. The FNMAG version will include 2000 rounds of 7.62mm and an FNMAG I specialy made for the PUMA.

Cockpit is nearly done. I have started painting the panel as I was waiting for a South African pilot who sent me detailed photos of the Panel, here is a screen...



The Puma will have all working instrumentation. The following screen is a cut away showing actual panel detail..



Will anounce a release date within the next 2 weeks after we've beta tested and fixed all bugs. Will also release the final version of the Alouette IIIs

ObmaR Ok guys I am finally reaching the completion stages of our PUMAs. Here are a couple of screens prior to finalising and binarizing the add-on and sending them to the team for beta testing.

PUMA AS330L with side mounted FNMAG in the Fire Force/COIN configuration. With the tube filters. 2 crew, 1 gunner and 12 passangers

Detail screen of FNMAG and gunner position

PUMA AS330C general utility CASAVAC/REARM configuration. This one I made with the special dust filters developed by South Africa and fitted on most PUMAs operating in SWA (Namibia) after 1982

ORYX this one is in the Search and Rescue/General Utility Configuration. The ORYX is a South African Uprate of the PUMA AS330L with some minor alterations more powerfull turbines and a doppler radar dome in the nose section.

I have included a winch and am hoping that someone can develope a script for us. Maybe we will become the first mod with something new and inovative like a proper working winch.

So far I can get the winch to extend down to about 30 meters ingame. It is a model animation and am hoping that a proper script will make the simulation apear more realistic

Panoramic view of the cockpit, need to complete a few things but all instruments are working

Cargo view screen just to give a general feeling of what it will feel like ingame.

NOTE: the ingame resolution is much higher and more detailed than in the O2 tool. The Pumas look almost real in the game.

Hopefully by the weekend I will have it ready for the team to test so I can fix all the bugs. Note the lovely shadows, I finally found out what the trick was. Once testing starts I will complete the pilots properly as FALCON 1 sent me all the info I needed. So we will have proper pilot models with the Star Pistol and the R4 rifle. Will be releasing it to the public first week of December
