Perhaps I should clarify my reasoning here: Whit aircraft (and almost all other) locomotors, only the first frame of the hva is rendered. If you are worried about the blade rotation itself, you could substitute the chopper image for the Mammoth Mk. II and see if there is any animation, because I think that it is the only multi-frame hva in Tiberian Sun.

>It has something to do with the locomotors. Support for this was added in YR for the spy plane I think. The helicopters in RA2 that have been made to work are actually special hover units, and that is again something that Tiberian Sun does not support. Sorry VPR, but (as much as I hate the words) it can't be done.
