make Mi-4's great again

What are some reasonable alternative load-outs and re-rolls that you'd like to see on the incredibly cute Mi-4?

I miss the days of pairing 2 40pt Mi-4As and raining 2HE rockets all over the place.

Mi-4s are too ancient. As a matter of fact, they should be removed. Most users dropped them in the 70s.
The SEAD never bothered me anyway.

Soviets loved using them to rocket the hell out of an Afghan Muj position before dropping gornos/VDV in via Mi-8s. Mi-4s are a cute and I won't tolerate such slander.

Yeah i agree, some units are too old. I think old units should only be used like prototypes to fill up gaps

Please people, stop saying the word "removing"...

You don't have to use MI-4s ingame or love them but for people who like a high variety of units the word removing is shit.

Increasing the rof of S-5 rockets would be fine without buffing their stats unrealistically

Chinese Z-5s were upgraded with a new engine and could achieve a top speed of 205/210kph so you could buff those, but then again chinese Mi-4s could only carry the 12.7MG and 2 very small 57mm rocket pods and they were mostly used for patrol or utility so you realistically can't do much for them beyond making them a very cheap recon heli (still better than the Mi-1 and actually realistic tho).

NK might have used them as well.


As for other Mi-4s, czechoslovakia actually had 130mm rockets to mount on those, up to 4 pods of 4 rockets so that would be both a unique and very interesting Mi-4 gunship loadout. Or 6 UB 16 57mm pods.


And the soviet Mi-4AV should carry 4 Falanga-M missiles, not Malyutkas.

These would both be nice to have. Especially for the Eastern Block helicopter department.
