RAF Chinook HC3

42 Commando - RAF Chinook HC3 Release

As many people will have seen there is an awesome MH-47e addon out there created by Konyo. Some of the features in this helicopter along with the updated model and high resolution textures made it the perfect replacement for the vanilla Chinook - great if you are an American group. I am part of 42 Commando a British unit operating around current day Royal Marines Commandos, we wanted to have this chopper in an RAF skin to use for our operations. So I got in contact with Konyo and he gave us permission to modify the work he had done. I would like to thank Koyno and all the guys that helped him with this mod for creating it, and for allowing us to modify the work. Furthermore I would like to thank Leeds and Porter at 42 Commando for their work with the re-texturing of the aircraft and to the rest of 42 for testing.

A few weeks later and here we have it the RAF Chinook HC3 (Fat Tanks). For more info on the real life counter part see here or here. Some features have been removed and tampered with for various reasons which are listed below:
