I think You should be able to survive a gentle crash to water with a Ah-9 fore example and eject then swim to safety.

Water should be a choice for an unavoidable hard crash-landing, not instant death.

I Also think that because logically if I must choose between land or water even at a gentle angle I choose water

Im not sure but maybe its something to do with not being able to eject from aircraft yet

Upvoted, very much so.

To test this:

1.) Hop into a helo.
2.) Hover slowly and gently into the ocean.
3.) Note how you die the very second the helo is completely submerged. No time to drown, just instant death.

In ARMA 3, it appears that every aerial crash into water means insta-death for the occupants, no matter what the velocity (you also cannot disembark if the helo is completely submerged).

In real-life, this is simply just not true.

A helo crashing into water is very much survivable. In fact, the U.S. military has machines that train people on what to do if they crash into the ocean in a helo.

My ticket deals with helicopters not interacting releastically with water, your ticket is a duplicate of mine.
