Diesel5187 & sykoCrazy

This project is meant to represent the A/MH-6M special operations helicopter.


Helicopter Models:

- AH-6M: FLIR/2xMiniguns/2x7-shot FFAR default loadout with a great variety of weapons to choose from with the dynamic loadout system
- MH-6M: FLIR/Benches, 6 passengers
- H-6M: FLIR/Stripped MELB

- M134
- GAU-19
- HE Hydra warhead
- Flechette Hydra warhead
- Illuminating Flare Hydra warhead
- MPSM Hydra warhead
- AGM-114

To install [MELB] Mission Enhanced Little Bird you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Included files:

Future plans:
- APKWS II Laser Guided warhead for the Hydra rocket

Note: Due to the addition of the loadout system, we've removed the preset Light, Medium and Heavy AH-6 classes from the editor. So now there's only 1 main AH-6M class to pick from. You can then choose a loadout by either using the dynamic loadout presets(make sure to select whether a gun/rocket is operated by pilot or copilot) or coming up with your own combination. For now the previously used classes are just hidden to avoid breaking any missions that still use them. In a future update we will be remo

+ Added
- Removed
@ Fixed
^ Improved
+ Dynamic Loadout system(please provide feedback either here or on the BI forums about ideas for a better UI Layout for that thing)
+ Ability to have more than 1 type of rocket warhead in the rocket pods(This makes the UI clunky, so let me know if this is at all worth the clunkiness)
+ Flechette Hydra warhead(let me know if this sucks the performance out of servers)
+ Illuminating flare Hydra warhead
+ MPSM Hydra warhead
+ Recoil for Miniguns and GAU19
+ Hydra rocket dispersion
+ Radar altimeter digital readout
+ Radar warning receiver
+ Editor preview images
+ Fire extinguisher
+ Wreck model
+ Tail number selection in attributes menu
+ Nose art is now selectable in the attributes menu
+ Interior/maint rotor/ammo box textures
- Bobblehead from the action menu(You can add it via attributes menu)
@ DAGRs and Hellfires should be working again(yay?)
@ Countermeasures also work
^ Optimized textures and models
^ Crosshair on the attack bird is now "better"
^ Flight model

v0.00003 Hotfix
- Sling loading works again!
- Instrument gauge dials easier to see
- Damage model
- Hellfire damage radius
- Helicopter sound
- Various optimization tweaks
- Easter egg now easier to activate(action menu)
- TOW functionality from guided rockets since ACE3 lasers work again.
So now even when using ACE you can lock onto laser, cycle to desired rocket, lock on and fire!

-Added: AH-6M-H (Heavy Variant -Pilot Gau-19 -Copilot: Laser, 1 Hellfire, 4 DAGR)
-Added: Miniguns to Heavy variant
-Removed: Miniguns from Heavy variant
-Added: Hellfire model
-Added: DAGR model
-Hellfire/DAGR Instructions:
NOTE: To keep these weapons usable with ACE, we have made them work like TOWs for now. This means that if you fire without a laser lock, the missile will follow the crosshair regardless. They have limited maneuverability, so a shot 90 degrees off bore might not hit its intended target. Laser lock is slightly more accurate.
1. Activate laser on helicopter.
2. Cycle to Hellfire or DAGR
3. Lock on to laser from Helicopter or laser from infantry/other vehicles using "T"(Lock Target) or "R"(Next Target).
NOTE: On occasion, the locked-on hexagon does not move with the laser, but the missile WILL track the laser.
4. Fire.
5. Track your target.
6. Keep it steady.
7. Profit, aka watch it go boom.
