Operation Flashpoint

UH-1 Huey

Description:

This addon represents the legendary UH-1 Huey, the USAF's workhorse utility helicopter throughout the Vietnam conflict, still being used today. It is a staple of any self-respecting Vietnam mission,

so it is important that the addons available are up to scratch. Lucky, then, that this is a pretty solid addon. The addon features three models with two skins. The gunship model features a machine gun mounted on the left skid and some rockets. The other two have a gun mounted on the side manned from the cargo compartment, one of them features the same pale green 'Nam style skin as the gunship, and one features a disrupted-pattern camouflage. The skinning is perfectly suited to the 'Nam islands and looks just like the Huey did then with a characteristic drab green. The modelling is accurate to my eye and true to that of the real-world Huey, but you can compare it yourself with the screenshots. A particularly nice feature is a ring of dust blown up by your chopper when near the ground. It is very well executed and stops when you reach a certain height, following your chopper convincingly when you are moving at speed. An unfortunate grievance is that of the lack of a readme and installation instructions. While the addon only contains a single .pbo, some instructions, however basic, should always be included and this will unfortunately drag the rating down somewhat. A tiny niggle is the strange effect when the windscreen is smashed. The remaining glass, for some reason, turns black and looks decidedly ugly and crude, as you'll see from the screenshots. And, while it does not detract from the addon's quality, a strange inclusion is the option of "Flare off" in the action menu. I have pressed this at varying heights and with auto-hover on and i cannot find any situation where it will actually do anything. A readme would have helped to clarify this. These niggles included, though, this is still a solid and fairly polished addon and would be a good choice for all your Huey needs.
