Fwd: Oct/09/2018 Incorrect Gunpod Modification Name

1.

US helicopters have available to them the XM-18 system, which is a pod-mounted M134 7.62mm Minigun designed for aircraft use. However, one of the in-game mechanics allows the rate-of-fire of the podded weapon to be cycled while in flight.

As a result, this means that the pods in question are not XM-18 pods, or even production M18 pods, but rather the improved M18A1 pod, which was a modification of the original M18 gunpod which featured a dual-rate firing system.

Therefore, on all but one of the helicopters with this modification available, it must be renamed to M18A1 in order to reflect the information detailed here.

 

However, I say all but one for a reason - the AH-1Z is slightly different, for reasons oulined in another bug report.

 

2.

AH-1G

UH-1B

UH-1C

UH-1C XM-30

AH-1F
