Hi
Have a question will be usefully if I will done this new icon's for Mi-2 with ATGM's and MMG's for other than only polish OOB will be some benefit from that for the game?

I looked for Mi-2 versions

Mi-2T basic transport (may be armed in 2xPK in rear windows)
Mi-2P Vip transport
Mi-2US (Uzbrojenie Strzeleckie) NS-23mm & 4 PK MMG's on sides installed on small wings 30 examples build because not very effective rebuild to different versions letter. First deliveries to units in November 1973
Mi-2URN (Uzbrojenie Rakietowe Niekierowane) NS-23mm & 2PK in windows & 2x pods with 16 57mm rockets unguided S-5K or S-5M on small wings first build in this version in 1972 some rebuild from Mi-2US 26 build. First delivery January 1973
Mi-2URP (Uzbrojenie Rakietowe Przeciwpancerne) NS-23mm & with Malutka guided rockets 4 rockets on sides + 4 additional inside for fast reloading. Between 1975- 1985 44 build for LWP. Last 3 build in new standard Mi-2URP-G rest in meantime rebuild for this new standard
Mi-2URS(Uzbrojenie Rakietowe Samonaprowadzające) NS-23mm & with Striela-2M rockets build as "fighter" against aircraft's. Experiments starts in 1982 but such specialised helicopter with limited AA capabilities rockets wasn't very usefully so was decided to go with mixed next version. So this variant was only experimental
Mi-2URP-G (URP plus Gad), Know as "Gniewosz-Salamandra" NS-23mm & with combined 4x Malutka and 4x Striela 2M rockets ( 2x Gad pods). Only 3 build as new helicopters rest rebuild from variant Mi-2URP. So they were armed with 4x Malutka'and 4x Striela 2M. Sometimes in units armed with 2x Malutka and Gad pod from one side and 1x pod with 16 57mm rockets S-5K/M from other side that configuration was used because flexibility during training. In 2007 14x helicopters of armed variants were modified with Night vision googles.

Ns-23mm


Mars-2 pod


Malutka firings pod


Malutka and Gad from Gniewosz-Salamandra



Mi-2 "Platan" with device to lay minefields carry around 20 mines introduced in 1985 used until 1995

Mi-2D "Przełącznik" for carry HQ with radio devices and space for maps around 25 build since 1974 used until 2000

Mi-2RO (Rozpoznania Ogólnego) for general observation duties with aerial photo also since 1974 first armed only in PK guns in windows since 1977 also build in variant 23mm NS & 2x PK in windows.

Don can you also add to Philippine OOB polish

PZL W-3A Sokół

They have 8 and they can carry 2x M60 machine gun in doors on both sides one from each side. Except that they are unarmed and they have them since 2012/2013 exactly since February 2012 according to this article https://www.globalsecurity.org/milit...elicopters.htm I have no exactly icon but one of polish green one can be used



And video where is possible to see how MG is installed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=td1GzqZbj3s

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Lz3-xDfpy...49996326_n.jpg

Czech has also 11 and in icons list is even as special icon in Czech variant camo which is not used in Czech OOB. They have now 10 of them and they are unarmed They buy them in 1995 in exchange for their Mig-29

Third airforce is Myanmar
has 13 in variant PZL W-3 Sokół unarmed transport version since 1991
here photos in their airforce https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/construction-number/310404

And last military operator is Algeria 8 helicopters since 2012 acording to this source https://www.helis.com/database/model...-3/%20?filc=DZ Variant W-3A transport version so probably MG is what is installed like in Philippine version.

China last year unveiled their Z-8L Heavy Lift Helo.

Recently, Chinese State Media showed a lineup of Z-8Ls waiting for take off:



Currently, we have the Z-8A (Unit 128) in the game.

Differences between the Z-8A and the Z-8L are:

The L model is wider so it can accommodate a Bobcat ATV (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0pdb4RRpNo)

The A model is a 13 ton class helicopter, while the L model is 15 ton class.

L has better countermeasures such as RWRs and IR decoys.

The Chinese introduced the Z-20 into service in October 2019.



The Z-20 is basically a Chineseized advanced version of the S-70C-2 Blackhawks (Unit 122) that China acquired in 1984 before Tiannamen.

It's not a straight Blackhawk clone though.

It has a 5 bladed rotor (Blackhawk has 4-bladed rotor), more powerful engines (2400 SHP vs 2000 shp on Blackhawk), and various improved technologies allowing it to work above 13,200 ft.

Recently, Z-20s have been seen with external weapons pylons, similar to the Blackhawk.

Key.Aero is reporting that the first of 12 AH-1Zs ordered by the Kingdom of Bahrain in 2019 has been completed. It will be shipped to Bahrain sometime next year, but no exact date yet. Am I correct in assuming this goes in the Gulf States OB file?
