Steps To Reproduce

First scenario

  1. Make your progress in the showcase mission of "Attack helicopters" till the point when you received order to RTB after saving troops AND HUD clock reading is below 18:59:59
  2. Make sure you not in danger (secure landing hill ahead of landing)
  3. Keep machine landed and wait till clock reaches 18:59:59
  4. After 1 second game crashes like it fails to reach 19:00:00

Second scenario

  1. Launch ingame Editor
  2. Place on VR map CSAT Mi48 Kajman
  3. Set time to 18:58:00
  4. Launch Preview
  5. As a pilot turn engine on - HUD is visible and time is 18:59:00 (for some reason not 18:58:00)
  6. at 19:00:00 the game crashes
Additional Information

Mi48 Kajman:
The game doesn't crashes if you manage to somehow hide the HUD before it reaches 19:00:00 either by turning engine off or by looking at cabin cockpit low enough so HUD disappears.

AH-99 Blackfoot:
The game doesn't crashes only if you turn engine off while clock changes to 19:00:00.

Worth mention that Kajman has digital time display on HUD and analog time display at cockpit; while Blackfoot has digital time display only on cockpit but not on HUD, thus hiding it wont workaround the bug.
