The missile doesn't even come from the tube, it comes from the side of the tube :P
A brilliant plan from the dirtiest euro-hippie: get US players to pay me for a game that I then show them how much their military sucks so I can feel better about being a communist.

Anyone knows wich units the Helicopters are seen in the clip?

I thought the ones getting wrecked are RAH-66 Comanches from the Cartel but the tail doesnt match, the resolution is too low to say for sure but those could be Stealth Hawks judging by their look and the fact that they are concealed until running into the Antey and the other helicopter.

I can also not identify the one hovering above the Antey at all but it is also a stealth helo. It looks like a small version of a Cobra.

ShadowHawks, aka "stealth BlackHawks".

Ah okay ShadowHawks are the correct name, I thought Stealth Hawk was its commonly used name :mrgreen:

But what about the one hovering above the Antey MadMat. With the ShadowHawk I at least had a guess but that thing is out of my frame of knowledge :ugeek:

EDIT:
It COULD be a Comanche but I thought those are for the Cartel and not for the Chimera.
This would also explain why the ShadowHawks are getting unveiled due to the Comanches nature of being a recon helicopter.

Actually it's more complicated than that, the missile spawn from the end of the tube and go straight for the target (wtf with that acceleration btw) but since the choppers goes fast near the S-300, the LOS between them rotates fast and so does the turret. Hence, by the time the missile go out of the tube, it's already a bit off.

EDIT: ah, I see what you meant.

Hmm seems cool, it will be interesting to see how well the resupplying ammo goes. I always love using artillery aggressively so I'm hoping they will be able to support rapid attacks well.

How did I miss this? By the way, does range decrease when you buy the upgrade?

I see. Any plans to make it into a VLS rather than stearable launcher? Otherwise it just looks..... very weird.

Once again, this is not Wargame. We are not trying to be realistic.
2 tubes --> 4 tubes = upgrade.
