Some more information on this one...

 

"The Aérospatiale Gazelle is a five-seat helicopter, commonly used for light transport, scouting and light attack duties. It is powered by a single turbine engine and was the first helicopter to feature a fenestron tail instead of a conventional tail rotor. It was designed and manufactured in France by Sud Aviation, later Aérospatiale; the Gazelle has also been manufactured under licence by Westland Aircraft in the United Kingdom as the Westland Gazelle, by SOKO in Yugoslavia, and the Arab British Helicopter Company (ABHCO) in Egypt. The Gazelle has participated in numerous conflicts around the world and has been operated by a number of export customers." --Wikipedia

(I'm not sure if the 341 and 342 models need separate entries or not.)

Okay, I was not sure if the different versions needed separate entries or not--sometimes the only thing that changes is stuff like which company is building the landing gear and it has no effect on gameplay so it doesn't matter, but sometimes it's a different engine and it gets better range, or they change what radar is used, or something like that. Thanks, Gunny.

A related request...

 

According to...

 

http://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/detail.asp?aircraft_id=93

 

...and...

 

http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/ac/row/gazelle.htm

 

The Gazelle can fire several other weapons in addition to the ones listed. Extra loadouts could be added...

 

Extra loadouts might include:

 

* 6 x MBDA HOT

* 4 x MBDA HOT + 2 x Mistral

* 4 x AT-3 Sagger + 2 x 9M32M SA-7

* 4 x AT-3 Sagger + 2 x UB-32-57 Rocket Pod

 

(I'm not sure the AT-3 is in the database, so I guess it will have to be added, although it looks like the information from the AT-2 or AT-6 can be used to model it.)

 

Or would it make more sense to just add the variant Gazelle models with the different loadouts?
