  • Quick (noobish) question

    I was practising my flying on a local server earlier and saw something that has been bugging me a long time. In this picture , just what is the octagon towards the top of the HUD? It has been bothering me for some time, it only appears when I am near the ground. Is it a thing to tell me where I will soon be at the current speed?

    It's your hover indicator. As it drifts off the crosshair it indicates your drift from hover.

        Ooooh, thanks. Does it work at any altitude?

          Yes. keep the hex on the crosshair and you are stationary.

            Usefull for helping the gunner to fire those laser guided missiles? Or can anyone fly on the move and still allow him to guide, staying still seems a bad idea to me


            That is the Apache Pilot view btw, really not good visibility but the gunner can see everything


            If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

              Yeah that's why I come in very low altitude behind the hills... when near target... take Altitude.. stabilized... let the gunner shot 3-4-5 Hellfire (Laser or not)... let the gunner switch to his cannon... deploy flare... move on the target and blast them with hydra (while gunner shooting 30mm cannon)... other flare... and move back to rearm!
