Mi-24a Krokodil

by
Colonel Malashenko


Description:
Mi-24A (Hind-B NATO classification) was the first production model of the legendary Mi-24 helicopter series. It was build relying on a "Flying IFV" concept. The early model could carry up to 8 soldiers and use a wide choice of weapons, like S8 rocket pods, UPK-32 gunpods, bombs and guided missiles AT-2 Swatter.

Addon info
It's a port of the ArmA 2 OA mod, which was made by Pathetic_Bezerker. All I've done is changed configs to the ArmA 3 standards and added some A3 features to it.

Features
- Can carry up to 8 persons as passengers and 2 as FFV gunners
- Dynamic loadout from Jets DLC
- Detailed and historically accurate model
- Additional skins, which can be changed via BIS Garage (Russian, CDF, Takistan, more will be ported later)
- You can cosplay Rambo and Red Dawn with this helicopter!


Installation:
To install Mi-24a Krokodil 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:
paf_mi24_a.pbo


Known issues:
- A little strange flight model
- No advanced flight model (will be implimented soon)
- Pilot hands position need to be fixed
- No server key


Notes:
Q: Will there be an RHS version?
A: RHS have very hardcoded and sometimes even broken configs. I tried to implement chopper on their configs, but that was bad idea. CUP is simple, good and goes like clockwork. Maybe in future there will be one.
Q: Will there be an *your variant* paint scheme?
A: I've got 4 or 5 paint scemes that I've not implemented yet. They will be released a little bit later. But now i can say that there will be North Vietnam paint scheme and SLA variant
Q: I've downloaded the helicopter, but I can't find it! Where it is?
A: It's located under the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, which is CUP faction. In future it will be implimented to CDF, SLA and Takistani Army
Q: Will there be a compatibility with UNSUNG mod?
A: It will be added as a separate file, but it still will be requiring CUP as dependency.
Q: OMG! Does this soldier has a cigarette in his mouth?!
A: Nope, it's just a texture :D
