Summary0006145: AH-6 Minigun Bullet Velocity is way to low compared to real-life & vanilla
DescriptionThe AH-6's Minigun (M134 on either LO or HI) has a very low bullet velocity making it almost impossible to hit a group of targets on a strafing run.

I have made a video comparing vanilla with RHS to showcase the issue: https://youtu.be/hZtBrwxNp80 [^]

Here is a footage of a real AH-6 doing a life fire and showcasing that indeed more bullets hit a target when fired: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fc9syUwi0Kc [^]

Ideally it would be good to have more velocity on the gun and get more bullets onto the target.

I did a few strafing runs earlier and with the current config the helo is not enjoyable when using the M134. The vanilla helo is way better at this =(
Steps To Reproduce1.) place a AH-6 in the editor
2.) make sure it has two M134 equipped (default)
3.) Start the mission
4.) Fly towards a target and (try to) hit it with the M134

Current velocity is set at 910m/s and ballistic data is same as for M62 AP bullets which might result in bit different drag than i.e. rounds using for training or M993 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M134_Minigun [^]

I think he is talking about firerate and not bullet velocity. Here https://youtu.be/hZtBrwxNp80?t=55 [^] . But I think that is caused by his very low fps in that video. The vannila littlebird fires more than 1 shot per frame so has way better firerate wiht low fps.

@tonimontana0328: I wasn't sure if it is that, but if so, then yes this should be fixed.
