M136 AT4 Choppers?

whenever i shoot down a helo with the at4, it seems that the people all bail out and they have ~3 secs to do so
even on a less than half health fully loaded blackhawk with the explosives upgrade, i managed to only get 1 kill
and yet, whenever someone uses teh carl gustard (gustav), they manage to get most of the kills on the chopper even if its at full health
that just doesnt seem to make sense to me as for armor, it seems that the time left to bail depends on the amount of overkill that the enemy did to you (less overkill = more time to leave, and by overkill, i mean how much damage is left over after it detracts from your health)
so usually, with teh at4, i can get massive kills on the apcs but not on the chopper, whereas the cg gets so many kills from teh chopper
is it just me? or...?
and is it just a bug?
any help would be nice

I know transport helicopters have a longer bailout time, where/health when the rocket also impacts on the bailout time iirc.

anywhere but the wings (in the Hind's case), also the tail of the helicopter, the UH-60 has a huge bailout time, it will rarely be affected unless its on low health.

(The main reason the Gustav can get a kill if you hit the Blackhawk, is because the splash damage can kill the mini-gunners)

Had the same problem. It's so much fun to bring an AT4 in on a heli.
Just that you don't ever get kills for it is fucking annoying...

Exactly. If you want to kill more guys take the CG to a loaded transport chopper. If the splash hits them the bail out time is not a part of the equation.

It has been observed that the newer faster AT4 can be a bad ass against choppers.

The sad face is exactly what I'm feeling right now. But at least the Blackhawk got a damage buff to make up for it biggrin.gif

When an M136 AT4 is flying a path that will strike a chopper, the missile lock alarm will sound the whole time your on track to hit the chopper. A tip to avoid this is to fire the rocket just off target, then at the last second slam the rocket into the chopper. Also try the explosive upgrade.

Raptor, if you are on the striking path - no sound tongue.gif
If the red square is ON the target - peeping sound.
So, keep the target in front smile.gif
