The eagerly awaited MultiCrew functionality and the corresponding changes for Voice Chat and Cargo Ops support are now implemented with the most recent open beta update. Enjoy!
Four crew positions are available including the cockpit crew and the side gunner. We have added new functionality to MultiCrew join requests permitting the crew commander to see the various role requests.The DCS: Mi-8MTV2 has specific AI crew functionality for the mechanic-technician (center cockpit seat) such as the on-demand monitoring of the yaw autopilot channel. If a human player takes this role then the AI functionality ceases to work automatically and switches over to the specific player to manage. While working with cargo, the mechanic-technician is moved to the rear cabin for cargo ops observation and management.
