  • Z-8
rdfs:comment
  • The Z-8 project was one of several program developed under the supervision of General Hardcastle. The basic design of the chassis was so successful that 50 years later, it appears that it was used as the basis for the Zeta Project.
  • In Battlefield 2, the Z-8 is used as the PLA transport helicopter. It is in much regard, more similar to its MEC equivalent, the Mi-17 Hip, then its USMC equivalent, the MH-60S Knight Hawk due to having Type 85 heavy machine guns mounted in its doors, rather than M134 Dillon miniguns.

abstract
  • The Z-8 project was one of several program developed under the supervision of General Hardcastle. The basic design of the chassis was so successful that 50 years later, it appears that it was used as the basis for the Zeta Project.
  • In Battlefield 2, the Z-8 is used as the PLA transport helicopter. It is in much regard, more similar to its MEC equivalent, the Mi-17 Hip, then its USMC equivalent, the MH-60S Knight Hawk due to having Type 85 heavy machine guns mounted in its doors, rather than M134 Dillon miniguns. The Z-8 also handles much like the Mi-17 and is more sluggish when compared to the MH-60. The vehicle can hold a total of three crew - a pilot and two gunners - and three passengers. It is best used in its intended role as a troop transporter, but it is possible to use the Z-8 in a role similar to the Knight Hawk, where the gunners provide support to ground troops, although this is rarely seen due to the Knight Hawk's guns being better optimized for this role.
