AH-64D Apache delayed (again)
Not really unexpected and so far only a few weeks at a time. Now expected end of February. But at least ED's communication is good and they got tons of in game to show. So slight disappointment in the community but excitement is there and BlackSharkDen is ready!
UH-60L Mod out!
RW mods in DCS have always been really quickly set aside at BlackSharkDen after a couple of testings. Most of them were re-using the Ka-50 flight model and relied only on the visual aspect, some very rare tried to implement some elements into a custom flight model, but implementing a realistic helicopter flight model is an order of magnitude harder than any fixed wing. As a result, no mods ever managed to convinced the team. But with the recent release of the UH-60L mod, we have been really pleasantly surprised.
Of course, the mod is not there yet to become officially a BSD platoon; some aspects of the flight model are incorrect (very high speed cruise, unrealistic VRS), the damage model makes this chopper a bit too hard to damage, and the avionics systems are very incomplete. But still, it is impressive enough that the possibility of, some day, make it a new official toy for our UH company is very real. We are keeping a very eager eye on this mod. Certainly a chopper about as expected in the community than the AH-64!
