The RAH-42 Snowfox is a medium weight Reconnaissance and Attack helicopter.
Designed to engage both at top speeds or from a set point and remain in cover using it's targeting pod extension.
This helicopter is designed with a small coaxial rotor diameter for Urban navigation and confined areas of operation.
Custom opening and closing canopy!
This helicopter is 1:1 scale in simpleplanes.
This is my first official helicopter upload, It's made to be easy to fly.
But it will punish you if you lose control.
This is the Full version.
For lower part count version (MP), without secondary cockpit screens and sensor pod: Link to lower part count version
Custom Dual cockpit, Pilot is seated in front, Gunner is seated in back.
Custom Azimuth indicator for gun/camera horizontal angle.
Custom weapon systems:
30mm Cannon has a selection of HE or AP rounds with 1000 rounds each.
AGM Hellfire as main missiles (I set up the weight and scale to be closer to the real ones.. tho not perfect)
Speedometer is IAS from 0-245mph Vne.
This helicopter is fitted with dampening system to prevent forward flight above 245mph.

I made a lot of custom parts for this, and I could add a lot more...
but It's already reaching 700 parts and more isn't really needed with this helicopter for me.
known issue: some gauges shake..
I fixed the ones that I wanted to fix, the rest shake to represent helicopter shaking..
