Aren't they beautiful? I want to see one in real life or sit inside one. Posted on April 30, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Aren't they beautiful? I want to see one in real life or sit inside one.
I've seen one shot down.
Ive been shot by one once
They are way bigger that you expect.
Best attack helicopter.
I hope we (Germany) get some too to partially replace the Tiger and have better interoperability with our closest allies, the Netherlands.
H-145M for you 🙂 cheapest, made in Germany and probably more money for the politicians' bags
H145M is good as additional support, but not as Tiger replacement
Too bad 🙂 they will just add some Spikes and call it a day
>Too bad 🙂
Why are you being such a cringy gay?
I doubt it's gonna be just H145M, especially now with a defense minister who listens to the soldiers more. AH-1Z Viper has been in the talks too, Bell even offered license production in Germany. Or a Tiger upgrade, or Apache.
Buy the rooivalk please. Support South African industry,
There is something awfully erotic about that bird, but that might just be my Battlefield 3 nostalgia talking...
Imagine not going for at least the Bell 360 Invictus.
Didnt expect so few countrys had apaches.
And Japan isn't bothering with them any more, which has given Australia pause for thought.
>replace the Tiger
Its not even an old platform.
it needs to be upgraded, and that's gonna be pretty expensive, which is why a replacement is under consideration
but the upgrade hasn't been ruled out either as far as I understand
their army is literally integrated into ours and our soldiers train together all the time.
Couldn't you just integrate murkan systems?
depends for what
NL (and Germany too) are using a bunch of American systems, mainly missiles and aircraft, while land equipment + naval stuff is mostly European/German/Dutch
but yes obviously it makes sense to standardize
Germany is getting CH-47 which NL already operates
Germany is getting F-35 which NL already operates too
both are using NH90
both are using PzH 2000, Boxer, Fennek, Leo 2
both will be building new frigates together (F127)
I mean integrating modern murkan systems into the Tiger helo.
what kind of systems? I don't see the point. The point of the Tiger is to keep Euro military helo industry capabilities alive. If it's just about getting a working product, may as well buy American but lose the domestic capabilities.
It looks cool, i hope you won't abandoon it
afaik the option of upgrading it isn't entirely ruled out
France and Spain are doing it, but afaik Germany isn't decided yet and Germany's version differs from France's and Spain's a bit (which was stupid to begin with, but alas)
French media reports France and Spain won’t do the upgrade too or at least fully because Germany doesn’t
>our closest allies, the Netherlands.
If we are talking purely about aesthetics, they are too bulky for my taste, but they don't look horrible either
cobra has it beat aesthetics-wise
>crashes into formation lead
just apache things
This is brilliant, but I like this.
Looks like a Uganda cardboard cargo-cult knockoff of the Apache, lmao
Pick 15R then I guess if you want to see them all day. They are pretty dope when they show up.
I pissed on the tire of one at like 0130 in hohenfells after my humvee broke down next to them
Tire monkeys gonna get pissed
I want to be inside one. And not as a pilot.
>or sit inside one
play dcs vr
Probably the best overall attack heli, with a lot more maneuverability than people on here think, but still very fragile and vulnerable to ground fire. That, and most nations are complacent with how they're utilized, thinking it's still GWOT
