Things wrong on Eurocopters Thread for “Alpha Strike” Update

This thread will be used to discuss about the French Eurocopters; what has been reported, and eventual fixed reports.
Here, a list of all the current active reports, including the one that got fixed this update.


Current Issues on every Eurocopter:

Fixed Issues in Alpha Strike:


Personal Thoughs:
Considering that the AH-1Z use the same HMS system of the Eurocopters, and the fact that in this patch Apaches got an HMD as well, i think that fixing the lack of HMS sight would be a priority.
its gun would be improved heavily if the explosive mass of its round would get corrected, giving more possibilities to engage other helicopters and ground targets.

Additionally, a bug with the targeting position makes impossible to guide missile near terrain, which would be nice to get fixed as well, if possible.


Would love to see if this thread can gain some visibility, so Developers can take a look at the issues and fix some of them.

Thanks for passing by!

To be fair the helmet display, the TDA 68mm, the flare chaff count. Is a general problem for all of the tiger

Hey,

Tiger HAD and UHT does use a different HMS sight as it seems.

UHT uses GEC Marconi Avionics KnightHelm, while HAD’s use TopOwl, hence why they’re separate issues.

I have included the flare and chaff count to the general issues of every Eurocopter.

Most important fix would be the missiles losing tracking on the UHT. It is absolutely infuriating to play that thing, when it loses track on a pantsir because it went behind a shrub or a tiny tree.
Additional PARS would also be nice.
