  1. Already done....Nice but a little bit boring when you don't see what you do ! Knowing that in addition the Huey and the Mi-8 perfectly allow this kind of operations in reality...
  2. Please ED, could you see if it is possible to integrate fast roping operation into our favourite simulator? It would be just wonderful to imagine one day seeing fast roping from a huey or the Mi-8! Pleaaaaassseeee
  3. It's a current bugg on DCS and it was already reported. Same issue with the Mi-24P. Try with the Ka-50 and you will see that all is fine. So, it's not an issue connected with your Virpil collective....
  4. I tested a single mission with the Mi-24 starting with engines running from the Tarawa. When you start the mission, both engines are shutting down. Same issue with the Mi-8 on the OB and the stable version. I tested also with the Ka-50 and no issue!
  5. That's why I don't understand why the Ataka is not yet modelled... Wait and see....
  6. Planned yes ! When ? Nobody knows except the developers...
  7. If you want to fly an helicopter : Go go go for the Hind (or the Mi-8)! If you just want to destroy all the targets on the ground whitout to much difficulties in controlling your machine : KA-50
  8. Thx a lot for your analyse LucShep. For sure it's never a good time to upgrade your sim PC because we know that something new will come in the following months. A new GPU (ike the RTX 4090), a new Intel CPU,... At one moment you have to decide what to do. I have made the decision to build my new PC before the end of the year. I am also quite pessimistic about the prices of electronics and it is certain that the new items will still be above the current prices (which are already above the "normal"). My wallet has a limit to how much I can spend versus how much I can make...
  9. Thx for the info, really interesting... I will further check all these before placing any order!
  10. I always had Pc with Intel CPu. I currently have an i7-8700k, a 1080ti GPU and all is running very well with all DCS settings in High or even ultra. Multimonitor and my main screen is a Samsung G9 Odyssey. I will migrate to VR end of 2021 and that’s why I want to upgrade my computer. I always had good results with all my intel CPUs and it’s aslo why I don’t want to migrate to another system. And you are correct, nobody knows when Vulkan will be up and running on DCS...We don’t have received any updates regarding this topics since a very long time despite the fact that ED has annouced Vulkan for Q3 2021!
  11. https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i9-11900K-vs-Intel-Core-i9-10900K/4110vs4071 It seems that when using Only one core the i9-11900k is faster...when we know that DCS is currently running only with one core (before The arrival of Vulkan on DCS), it should be an advantage to run with it... If I am not mistaken...
  12. What’s the most advantage of the i9-11900k compared to the 10900k for DCS?
  13. I am also building my new DCS computer : Here is the list of my current choice. Comments are more than welcome CPU : Intel i9-10900K 3.7 Ghz GPU : Nvidia RTX 3090 FE Mother board : Asus Rog Maximus XIII Hero RAM : G.Skill Trident Z 32 Go (2x 16 Go) DDR4 4000 MHz CL19 Cooling : Corsair hydro H150i RGB Pro XT
  14. Check ! Thxxxx I just realised that I have two screens (multi monitor) and that it probably appears in the left-hand corner of my second screen
  15. Not working anymore on OB after the last update (11 Aug 21)
  16. Same map as the F10 view ? This map was apparently used in the very first Mi-24P video shown by Matt (Hind over Latakia) so I guess this solution was studied but I don't know why it was then abandoned...
  17. ED (@Bignewy) please, could you give us some news regarding this topic? Was expected to be implemented for Q3 2021...which means now or in the following weeks so.... Thxxxxxxx
  18. From my side, I am still waiting more news regarding the implementation of Vulkan API. We don't have so much info regarding this but beside the next possible modules it's probably the most important topic linked to the future of DCS ! If I remember well, it was planned for Q4 2021...
  19. Fuel burn rate : input from a Mi-24P flight manual Regarding the rolling TO, you will for sure consume less fuel compared to a vertical and hoovering TO --> So Prio 1 if possible My 2 tests in transit flight was to demonstrate the Max flight time and distance during transit flight. It is certain that for all other types of flights these data will obviously be different and more restrictive.
  20. My Mi-24P weight sheet. Remarks, comments, corrections and additional information are more than welcome... Post updated ! Don't use the Pdf Doc (deleted). Some inputs are from the stable version and are not correct ! Ex : 2 x Shturm = 230 Kg but in fact the value is in Lbs !!
  21. For sure, the Mi-24P Hind is a terrible beast with a lot of possible firepower BUT the beast is heavy and fast so it needs fuel ! It's then quiet important to determine precisely what you can bring with you to engage the target(s) depending of the distance between your take-off, target and landing areas. This weekend I did some tests to determine, depending on the weaponry I wanted to carry, what my flight time was and the distance I could cover. You will find in appendix the details of my first 2 tests which took into account the armament and the weather from a cold start in a parking area. The aim is obviously to get a discussion on it, but here are my main conclusions: If rockets are needed: preferably UB-32 launchers. Smaller rockets but more numerous and above all enormous weight and therefore fuel savings If only against light vehicles and infantry : 2x GUV-8700 pods (12.7 + 2x 7.62mm). That's all! The two 30mm side cannons + two pods give a lot of firepower and ammunition capacity. If the rocket launchers are added, the range of the Hind will be considerably reduced. Anti-tank engagement: Maximum 8 x Shturm. No rockets. Prio 1 : SAM+AAA Prio 2 : Tk Pio 3 : IFV + APC It is also interesting to know that from the first fuel warning there are +/- 13 to 14 minutes of flight time left (cruising speed 250Km/Hr with straight flight and constant altitude). Under the same flight conditions, when the second fuel warning comes on, there will be only 7 minutes of flight time left.
  22. if I am not mistaken, the approach speed during an engagement is between 220 and 250 Km/hr
  23. I have the same problem, currently, only the map is exported, not the cursor...Maybe later when the multi-monitor will be fully implemented within the module...
