IMPROVED HELICOPTERS FOR GUNSHIP 2000

The helicopters in Gunship 2000 do not fly at the speeds given in the manual using the realistic flight model.
The Apache suffers the most speed deficiency with the Kiowa actually flying quite a bit faster than it should. The files included with this document will increase ( or decrease in the case of the Kiowa ) the speeds of the helicopters to the posted speeds.

To update your helicopters, simply copy the 6 data files into the same directory as the Gunship program. The new speeds ( without weapons ) are as follows:

Apache and Apache Longbow 162 knots
Blackhawk 159-160 knots
Cobra 170-171 knots
Comanche Scout and Gunship 174 knots
Defender 125 knots
Kiowa 125 knots

* Remember, speeds are affected by temperature and weapon
load. A fully loaded helicopter will not fly nearly as
fast as the above list. Firing all weapons will yield
the faster speeds above.

It is important to have these faster speeds since part of your score it rated by the time it took you to complete your mission. I've found that these speeds ( which are more realistic ) can really improve the game! Enjoy!

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
