I don't know of any other game where you shoot a missile at your enemy only to have it seek out a friendly aircraft either :D
I wasn't aware of that thing with the cobra, but then again I prefer just being infantry. Thanks though now I got something to bitch about whenever I get killed by one.
the missles are way off in tracking enemy targets. but the m60 is just as bad just click and something dies

um, no. you have to AIM the M60. especially with the new patch. Don't even compare the M60 the the seekers.

back on the Mi-8...it has an upside and a downside: Upside=fires 4 missles and then can fire second gun consecutively...Downside=its the size of a whale (great target for my LAW/RPG if i stole it)
But for some reason takes me every piece of lead I can throw at it just to put a chip in its paintjob. I hate seeing those Mi8s circling above... I always feel like I can't do crap about it. Smack it with the LAW in my hand... just draws attention to me. Go full auto with an M60... multiple clips... I've just made some nice dents in it. Since the US/ARVN doesn't get portable heatseekers, can't use those. I guess I'll run. Anyone have some strategy here? I mean, outside of using a vehicle (of which, the US/ARVN doesn't get anti-air vehicles, so... steal one or try and use a tank as AA, which DOES work, but is a pain).
thats why they have a huey. so you can use those skillless gattling guns on the side and kill everything in the air.
I tend not to use any vehicles in the game at all (except for transport purposes... like the MUTT). I have been finding that I pretty much suck in any vehicle. I guess THAT'S my problem with taking down the Mi8s (or Hueys when I'm playing VC... but at least I can select a heatseeking SA-7).
REDEYE! REDEYE! REDEYE! Damn you EA. Redeye. Now. NOW! :D Actually I fully agree with Ender's complaint about US AA. In know the US is supposed to count on the air support, but frankly I think it sucks donkey that we HAVE to count on air support. All the inept pilots who aren't listening to radio requests seem to be on every server I have tried. If I actually get into a game of Hastings where I'm not beaten down by the Mi-8 at the rice paddys because the UH-1H Gunship is actually GUARDING the AIRSPACE, then I'll reconsider their usefulness.
I like switching seats in the Cobra- heheh- but it is annoying when it is done to you.
