v16 HAT vs Russian Helo

Recommended Posts

As a BRIT, I fired a HAT at and hit a Russian helo as it landed and was deploying troops.  The HAT round hit the helo just below the rotor and above the cockpit in the engine intake.  The helo lifted off and flew away with barely any smoke trail.  Is this normal or otherwise as expected in v16?

Almost all my squad was shooting enemy helicopter langing in the field less than 100m away. I wasted 3 clips firing singles before it finally touched ground. Landed troops was killed instantly, but during prolonged descend and ascend noone was killed inside helicopter, neither itself was damaged to some smoking state. Gunner and pilot took a lot of hits, but they are probably immortal.

I saw someone killed in helicopter only once - when AT hit it.

BDRM incendiary rounds kill a fresh logi in one clip, less with some precision.

Same rounds against heli seem to kill the occasional passenger but rarely, if ever, a pilot and seem to do very little damage to vic or crew.

 

I'm sure it will change...

There's your problem, try using a magazine in your rifle next time.

I've seen a lot of this happening to me. Putting a HAT on an APC moving fast and it didn't even smoke.

Going off-topic? Ok.

How does it make any difference in accuracy or damage? SKS? Can you prove it's not empty mags and clips at the start (animations skiped for simplicity)?

There must be something going on. Yesterday i drove a techie at high speed over a mine. I hear the click, the explosion follows, but it happened all behind me and i keep driving on. I think i did the same with a Brittish logi in sumari. Sometimes it just blows my mind how a Tandem AT missile doesn't even remove paint!

This is actually something I hope they keep in the game for technicals. During the Chadian-Libyan Conflict (aka The Toyota War) Chadian troops discovered that driving a techie through a minefield at high speed actually would not detonate any mines.

Wow that went right over your head. Most rifles generally take "magazines", not "clips".
