The Cougar is out on the hunt.
Eurocopter AS 332L2/532
The Eurocopter AS532 Cougar (now Airbus Helicopters H215M) is a twin-engine, medium-weight, multipurpose helicopter developed by France. The AS532 is a development and upgrade of the Aérospatiale SA 330 Puma in its militarized form. Its civilian counterpart is the Eurocopter AS332 Super Puma.
Suitable for FG versions 2017+
The FDM has been test flown and tested by an actual AS532 pilot who gave it a big thumbs up ( 90% accurate )
The Cougar, in Basic form, Requires Right Pedal and Cyclic at 7pm position. Large Stick movements are not recommended.
There is a payload option to simulate long line use to the Cougars stated 10000lb hook capacity.
If you set this to Maximum the flight characteristics will change dramatically. You will require Large left cyclic inputs to take off/hover. Expect all performance values to degrade.
Take note that the Maximum specified take off weight is 9000kg / 19842lb. Exceed that at your peril.
Compatible with the Cargo Towing addon ( separate download ). :- https://github.com/wlbragg/Cargo-Towing-Addon
