Design Edit

Comparable in size and appearance to NATO's MH-9, the M900 is the civilian variant of the same xH-9 series of light helicopters.

There are up to seventeen variants of the baseline M900; all are functionally identical to each other, but have their own unique paint scheme or use a custom livery that depending on their owner.

Because it shares the same airframe, it retains the superior aerodynamic manoeuvrability of its military counterpart. The main difference between the two is that the M900's cabin is completely sealed whereas the MH-9's one is left open. The M900 also lacks side benches, and is unable to carry any passengers on the outside of the cabin as a result.

As with its parent counterpart it also does not have any defensive avionics or countermeasures, and lacks armour plating as well.

The M900 has a seating capacity of four personnel. This includes both the crew which consists of the pilot and a co-pilot (who sit in the front two seats behind the bubble canopy), and two additional passengers who sit on two seats located in the rear of the cabin.

Camouflage Edit

  • Blue: Pearl white paint scheme with white-outlined two-tone blue stripes.
  • Red: Beige paint scheme with white-outlined two-tone red stripes.
  • ION: Pattern-less matte black paint scheme. Custom scheme used by the ION Services private military company.
  • BlueLine: White paint scheme with black-outlined blue stripes.
  • Digital: Digitised three-tone grey semi-fractal camouflage pattern.
  • Elliptical: Two-tone red/white paint scheme.
  • Furious: Flat white paint scheme with dark blue stripes.
  • GrayWatcher: Slate grey paint scheme with white-outlined yellow stripes.
  • Jeans: Dark blue paint scheme with white/taupe brown stripes.
  • Light: Flat white paint scheme with grey-outlined dark yellow stripes.
  • Shadow: Dark brown paint scheme with white-outlined three-tone brown stripes.
  • Sherriff: Beige paint scheme with black-outlined dark green/wood brown stripes.
  • Speedy: White paint scheme with bright orange stripes.
  • Sunset: White paint scheme with red stripes.
  • Vrana: Pattern-less red paint scheme. Used by M900s owned by the Vrana Corporation.
  • Wasp: Matte black paint scheme with yellow stripes meant to mimic the abdomen of a wasp insect.
  • Wave: Dark blue paint scheme with dark brown/white stripes.

Slingloading Edit

The M900 is able to slingload and transport equipment, though it is limited to just:

This makes it a potentially useful airlift vehicle, although far less useful than the heavy lift helicopters of NATO, the AAF, and CSAT.

Trivia Edit

  • Like its parent vehicle, the M900's airframe is based on the real-life "MD-500" series of light helicopters designed by MD Helicopters, Inc.
  • There are two unused (and hidden) variants of M900 that are suffixed as "Luxe" and "Stripped" respectively in-game.
    • The "Stripped" variant is simply a barebones variant of the M900 that has all optional components such as the doors, rear two seats, holding frame, and skid treads removed completely.
    • On the other hand, the "Luxe" variant is visually identical to standard M900s with the exception of always having the same components as the "Stripped" variant attached. It is probable that this variant was intended to be a V.I.P transport that would have had extended features, similar to how the CH-49 Mohawk has an unused "Luxurious" variant with a unique passenger cabin.
      • It should also be noted that like the Mohawk, the M900 and its parent vehicle are upgraded ports of the Light helicopter model from Take On Helicopters, an earlier flight simulator title released by Bohemia Interactive.
