has annyone noticed how its almost impossible to shoot down a cobra with a pilot and passenger? its got fast missiles and the gunner can shoot heat seakers. dont forgett the 50 cal hes got also. the mig 21 missiles are really big! and the explosion is huge! it should only take one missile to blow up a cobra. its just way to damn hard to make it fall from sky like broken bird. :)
Jeeze the cobras piss me off. All you need to do in it is go around, blow shit up and if you have a plane on ur ass turn around and your gunner can blast the shit outa it. or you can just switch to 2nd position and do it yourself.
The heat seekers really, really need a patch :thumbsdown:
You mean you can FLY the Cobra WITHOUT being immediately shot down or TK'd?
if your good. its so damn cheap! plane flys by, switch to second position long enough to click the mouse and five seconds later that corsair has fallen from sky like broken bird! now if VC steels one of them F4s then the US helis got it up the ass like lil bow wow and his body guard.
I just got out of a game where i was flying a cobra. I had no 2ndary person so i went to the vietcong spawn copters and shot them with 2 missiles. BOOM!! easy as pie.
Usually in public servers I find that on Flaming Dart the NVA circle the ARVN base and destroy anything that moves. True - they only have so many missiles, but they seem to time it just right that it's a never-ending stream of aerial assault. On Irving and Hastings... and a few others I can't quite recall the names of... I can get in the air and actually do some damage. Maybe it's just the MIG's I can't face off against! :)
thing is, you need an f4 to shoot them down, it's heat seekers against heat seekers. you also have to come up behind them. the problem is, the US get BOTH, and the NVA doesn't get any heatseekers, so... the only real hope is that little homing missle rocket launcher that the NVA gets (forgot the name), and even then, it seems like although the cobras and that little rocket launcher get the same homing missles, the cobra ones work much better :furious:
that missile sucks! sure you can hit a jet with it but its not like hes retarded enough to turn around and come strait on to the guy with the missile. and then when u shoot one at hte cobra it turns around and kills you before you get the second one
IMO, the heat-seekers really need a patch. NVA missiles should be stronger, and the US ones shouldn't be seeking friendly chinook-things over MiGs.... that got me kicked. And then the US m60/LAW guy... dont get me started....
