Hey huys, I really got into flying with Helis in Squad.
So my question is; where did the attack helicopoter mod went ?
And is there a possibility that there are coming new models of Helis ??
Since OWI introduced helicopters, the creator of the helicopter mod no longer maintains his mod. Here is a showcase of all the features it had back in 2019 when it became deprecated: https://youtu.be/vw2j0SQX0pE
The CAF is getting their own helicopter: https://trello.com/c/BQQ3u9ZL/98-caf-ch146-helicopter
And I imagine the AUS and PanAsia factions coming someday will have their own helicopters as well.
I suspect the USMC faction will use the Black Hawk.
No official word on attack helicopters that I know of. Would love to see them though.
The post above me is accurate but Id say its more likely that the USMC will be getting the UH-1Y as its another modified Huey, similar to the Canadian helicopter in the picture. After all the delays I'd be disappointed if they didn't just change the texture of the Griffon at the very least.
The French modded faction just posted pictures of their modified Puma and NH90 on their discord too.
And yes Attack helicopters are not on the game and are still a long way off, however a couple of mods do have attack helicopters in them currently, the combined force mod and middle east escalation come to mind, check them out to get your fix in the short term.
Panasia is pretty much guaranteed to have a reskin of blackhawk or mi-8, or both(use the one that doesn't look like the one on the other side).
It's worse than that.
It's not merely the mod creator not maintaining his mod, he was told by someone at owi they'll get back to him about incorporating his work in the game, they never did. So he quit because owi basically left him on read and made their own inferior helicopter system.
I know this because I was working with the guy who makes Combined Force mod and that's the story I heard as he contacted the author of helimod for ideas on how to get attack choppers working.
