    Thanx ripptide. This is a great additon, specially for the Vietname mods. Plus, it was probably the most apreciated sight for US soldiers during the Vietname conflict

    Still, a vietname mod without this would be like a bagle without cream cheese. :D

    Hi! Great looking helicopter! But I'm not incredibly informed about helicopters... can we get some info about this particular one for the laymen? :)


    Btw, cream cheese rocks! :D

    Yes, a most excellent unit for any late cold war era scenarios, and if I might add...

    The Choctaw was primarily a medium transport (ie yep it could sling a howitzer underneath) and also as a troop carrier. It was also used (in it's Seahorse incarnation) as a SAR helicopter. This version isn't armed, but both the Marine and Army could be armed with rockets mounted on the landing wheel supports

    Ah, the reason you're my favourite unit creator: You're nice enough to write out the Civilopedia and PediaIcons entries. Plus your units are amazing :goodjob:
