Hey guys,

I'm looking for a straight to the point answer from you all regarding the Snake Eyes mod that I'm making...

The mod involves a model swap of the PB-250 and adds it to the A-10A as a usable weapon. The bomb will behave just like the PB-250 in this case, and will be retarded as it falls.

The problem is that it is a Russian weapon on a US plane. Would you allow this on your server?

I've made a disclaimer for the image when you're loading up to say that it is not allowed on public servers, but I want to guage your opinion.

The result will be, if admins are happy to allow it, we will include it in the A-10 that Yeniceri is making, if not, we will release it seperately.

Heres my thinking on this...

If it does the same relative damage as the standard Mk. 82 and gives no advantage to you for using the PB-250 over the regular bomb it should be fine.

As far as I know we allow certain loped loadouts. These include R-77 on outer pylons and Shepskis mod for A-10s and the TERS on the Su27 and 33. But other than that I don't think anything else is allowed at this point.

I suppose we should make an official policy regarding specific loadouts. I have seen a few loadouts that are questionable.

I'm thinking the same... I guess if the PB-250 is similar kind of weapon (in usage and warhead) I guess I wouldn't have any objections. I do wonder though that if you do replace the model of PB-250 with SnakeEye and add it to US side, wouln't that make PB-250 no longer usable for the russian side?

There are currently 2 choices...

1, Replace the PB-250 with the MK-82 Snake Eye only.
- This will mean that the A-10 will have it added as a weapon, but SU-25's can still use it, although it would look like a Snake Eye...

2, Replace the PB-250 with the Snake Eye, and remove it from the Russian aresenal...

I'd go for option 2 but I don't really think it's a good idea to have it on server because some people will have it where as others won't

It'll still read as a PB250 in the after action report.

Is there any tactical benefit to slowing the bomb down as it falls?

Or is this mod just for looks?

You can release straight and level at low altitudes.
