1. Is it possible to zoom in/out the
FLIR and DTV MFDs or does the game select the best magnification.

2. Do you have to manually discharge the Fire Bottles after they are armed.

3. What's the diff between radar and laser hellfires. They both seem to work the same in LOAL and in LOBL.

4. How do you turn off laser.

1.) press + - on keypad, each has different levels of zoom.
i think if u press ALT + ALT - you get the max zoom/min zoom.

2)When you get a fire u have to use Ctrl F , but it only works once.

3) Radar will give your presense away to everyone, while laser only should give it away to the targeted vechicle. Of course they might communicate the fact that they have a laser locked on them. This works as i was using my laser once and as soon as i switched to radar there AA opened up on me.
Laser Hellfires are more eefective against enemy Aircraft as the radar ones can be spoffed by chaff.
Radar missiles will be less effective against moving targets if you perform bobup attacks as the radar image might be out of date. While laser requires a constant lock and if that lock is broken mid flight the missile will go astray.

4.) i would like to know as well

thanks for your reply.. but

1. the +/- keys (even those on keypad) dont zoom in or out the FLIR/DTV MFDs. they may increase/decrease radar range only. even using Ctrl or Shift or Alt the +/- keys dont zoom the FLIR/DTV..

Yes it does so since radar is still active!
switch to FLIR/DTV first (Delete/End) and then for convinient viewing F3/F4 depending on what MFD page you brought the mode on. Then the keypad +/- keys work as advertised. In addition use helicopter to turn it around or use Num5 to centre the cmera and Num arrows to move it about indendently from chopper. You are advised to go in a/p or stable hover mode while doing this. Press Num0 to target while brackets displayed around the object found.
