UH-60 Black Hawk
I had a topic about a Black Hawk in Basrah too, it's here;
Ok, the Black Hawk is an awesome vehicle. Sadly enough it is only used on Oman, and I have seen no-one using it like it should be.
That is mostly because Oman has loads of vehicles, jets, apc, apaches, tanks etc. If you had to choose between an Apache and a Black Hawk, then you will choose the Apache, since it is possible to kill people as a pilot.
Because Oman has a lot of other (air) vehicles, the Black Hawk isn't used to kill, but just to crash it on A, so you can cap the flag as first.
Here are my suggestion to use that Black Hawk as a mode of transport, way to kill and to spot:
1. The sound
Make it harder, lower and cooler. People have to look up and say 'WOW!' when you fly this thing over their heads.
Oman is the only map having a Black Hawk (Dragon Valley too, soon) but it isn't really used, and it isn't going to be used.
The best map for a Black Hawk would be an infrantry only map, with a normal size (like Karkand). The setting of the map doesn't really matter, but a city (like Karkand) would be fine. If you have a map where the Black Hawk is the only way to get in the air, people won't crash it because everyone loves flying.
If you give each team 1 Black Hawk, then it would be easy to fill it (with people).
It is a good idea to have 1 flag on the top of a building (a HIGH building), so you probaply need a Black Hawk to get there (although it must be possible to take the stairs to go there, so you have hard fights inside buildings too, but the best and fastest way to get there would be with the Black Hawk).
It would be awesome to see (or fly) a Black Hawk above a city between two high building, then turn 90° so your gunners face the upcoming enemy troops, let them open the fire and stay hovering at the same place.
Suddenly ( ) the enemy have send their own Black Hawk in combat, and you have to take it down. The enemy's Black Hawk flies next to you and opens fire. The ground troops see two Black Hawks hovering next to eachoter and firing heavily. Then one of them explodes and smashes to the ground.
Make the gunners more covered, so you die slower in a Black Hawk vs. Black Hawk fight. This isn't really necessary, but very recommend since the gunners die really fast. :/
A Black Hawk on Oman spawns really fast. In a Black Hawk only map I recommend to make them more rare.
5. Changes on the UH-60
Here is a list of things what has to be changed on the UH-60 to make it more effective.
- Make the turn radius of the gunner's gun more wide, so you can aim straight forward
- Change the color to black, it looks cooler and better, which make people use it more
- (Maybe) explosive ammo, against vehicles like APC or tank
More things are comming, but I have to think about some things. Please sign.

! Every suggestion is the same for the Mi-18.
So if there is a Black Hawk in Basrah, there would be a Mi-18 too (of course) !
