This is the only heli that allows you to 'exit' yet remain within the heli. If the heli is full and you are at the back you have to manually walk out via the ramp
The primary positions are a normal 'appear outside' exit but you would have to use the function keys to switch there before hand. I'll have to double check if it works like that but the ramp makes a cool noise anyway :D
Will Brits get the Merlin on the new Al Basrah ?
If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.
Riding in the Merlin is bugged if you're not in a seat. Don't bother trying.
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. ~
I have a tendency to key out three or four things and then let them battle for supremacy while I key, so there's a lot of backspacing as potential statements are slaughtered and eaten by the victors. ~
Feel free to quote me. ~
Last time I read the PR guide, the UK was getting the littlebird. I'm guessing that's an error as the MoD generally has a thing against buying cool equipment. The SAS have employed a bug-ugly helo in the past, that is similar to the MH6 but I've seen nothing in the PR forum to indicate a UK equivilant in the pipeline.
lol,or is it the MoD, or its insistance on buying from BAe to save Brit jobs?Then we end up with disasters like the SA80, Tornado fighter and bomber,(Had concreate in nose instead of radar for a few years) Eurofighter, Merlin (hopefully fixed) and now the new frigates!But im really trying not to rant, and its not the place for it!
The new SA80s aren't all that bad, I'm told. And excluding its perennial maintenance issues (of which a massive number have been rectified in the A2) it seems to always be touted as the best standard issue rifle currently in service.
