    Let me present yet another helicopter, and this time it is famous russian KA 50 Black Shark ( or Hokum).
    The model is animated, with two spinning rotors and with all corresponding sounds. The only thing that bothers me is what i used way too many polygons 1800, while still standing in 2000 polys limit it is nevertheless may prove too much for some slow computers. Later i'll upload lightened version, without armament. that will be about 1350 polygons.

    Here some renders, screenshot , polycount and archive.
    Enjoy !

    P.S. How to add new units guide

    Very nice. How do you do it so fast? It takes me ages to skin these things.

    Great!! Looking very forward to some new creations!

    IMO everyone should supply some reference when requesting a unit!;)

    hey,

    since you're on a helicopter kick, could you possibly do an AH-64 and it's successor the Stealth Version of it (I think it was called the Commanche but I can't recall the designation, the defense dept ended up canceling it too :( )

    Is it possible to show either the propeller or its motion trails in the civilopedia image? Great model though.

    It apears you are not only the plane master but the chopper one too.

    a black hawk would be pretty cool...

    Awesome Unit!! I just downloaded it and added to my game!

    I was just wondering though...do you think that you could make a custom animation for this bad boy? It's got big guns and missles on its side, and yet in game, it only shoots out of its nose since all I can use is the original gunship animation :( oh plz?
