The US Army’s main attack helicopter now for GTA V. Since Rockstar took away our beloved Hunter based on the Apache, this one replaces the Savage from the Heist DLC (custom handling included).
The Savages MG has been replaced with an other MG, which has a slower rate of fire, BUT can be aimed 360° by the pilot. That means you can shoot in any direction while flying. The exterior has normal maps for enhanced detail and 2048×2048 textures. The rotor textures are blurred when the engine is on, both pilot doors open up and you can also open both engine covers of the turbines (with a trainer, see picture 3). The cockpit is detailed and features illuminated screens at night. Flight stick is working as well, so does the landing gear suspension and the wheels. When destroying the helicopter, the tail can break off, bulletholes are visible and the glass be shot as well (picture 6). Includes all LOD levels (0, 1, 2, 3) and custom collision mesh.
Israeli Air Force skin (picture 2) not included, will be released some time later.
Exterior model converted from DCS: A-10C.
Cockpit model converted from Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.

Like I have said before, I’m really eager to release more aircraft (military/civillian), helicopters and military vehicles. If you like my work and want to see more, please show your support donating. It helps me affording the things I need to continue modding (ZM3, model files, etc)
And thanks alot for the support I have recieved already 🙂
