    Agree 100% on all points SNAFU. Howbou' we move the helo spawn over towards where the side mission Hummingbird is parked? Plenty of room on the ramp there. Oooooor chuck an aircraft carrier off the coast and put the helicopters on that...sure won't be helo theft anymore... ? I know the carrier has been discussed before, but I'm not 100% sure why it wasn't implemented. Having it as a side-mission may be too complex, but setting it up as a helo spawn point can't be too hard - could also (rather happily) add a few CIWS and SAM's to the ship to assist with the base defences' lacklustre attempts at shooting down enemy aircraft. Cheers, SandStormAU

    Sadly, whilst I'd love for us to regularly get a CAS helo (with ATGM's, not just rockets), I'm inclined to agree with Persona. A rotary CAS aircraft would, for most AO's, be entirely overpowered and would wreak destruction and chaos on the enemy....until it ran out of ammo. ARMA does some very silly things on a very regular basis (re: physics and ordinance), but terrain masking is terrain masking. If you do it properly and you do it often, a CAS gunship helicopter would be able to pop-up, acquire, pop-down and then lift again to launch. With Fire-and-Forget missiles, the helo's are extremely survivable.... just don't let the enemy AAA have the chance to lock you. ? Regards, SandStorm.au

    Great footage @Humaine! Loved the Airwolf theme with your Hummingbird INFIL, thanks for the event @webbie!!!! Was awesome to be able to supply some of your rotary wing needs for the events! ^_^ Cheers, SandStorm_AU

    Hey Humaine, Unless you're in a pilot slot, the I&A rules state that you're not allowed to fly any aircraft (with the exception of the side mission Hummingbird which, as the name suggests, is only to be used to ferry people to the side mission and not main AO). In addition, pilots must be on Teamspeak. I'd hazard a guess that an admin deleted your helicopter whilst you were flying it, but I'm sure one of them will clarify in the near future. Cheers mate, SandStorm_AU *EDIT* Some easter eggs have been despawning lately too, it may have been a bug.
