Not happening, R-60M is already a creation that several of us asked for, on account of carrying a DU frag warhead (weird I know)
However an armored hind with (hopefully) 4 of these would be just right, able to dish out 16 dmg if all 4 hit. Thats not overkill but competitive enough that no one cries foul. For anything more send in some R-73 equipped MIGs or the Ka-50 :idea:

The problem with R-60 at the moment though, is that it only has 3 HE. You would need 2 hits to kill the weakest helicopters... And with it's 40% accuracy, I don't see it being very effective.

It will have Ms, not the vanilla.
If there's two kinds of players, those that like challenges and those that want a fair game, pubstomps should make everyone happy.
