DCS-NEWS DCS: OH-58D Kiowa by Polychop Simulations

The FAQ​

Q: What version of the OH-58D Kiowa will we get?
A: OH-58D(R) CDS4, dating from around 2016. However, the mission editor has access to options to customize the aircraft to represent older airframes with systems such as AN/ALQ-144 Infra-red Countermeasures, the Pilot Display Unit and the removal of the Mast Mounted Sight.

Q: Can I shoot the M4 out of the door?
A: Yes

Q: Is there going to be multicrew?
A: Yes

Q: Will there be a data link or similar?
A: The Improved Data Modem (IDM) is a similar system that allows for transmission of data between player aircraft. This includes but is not limited to the following features: Free-text Messaging, Target Sharing and Remote Hellfire Missions. The OH-58D is also equipped with the Level 2 Manned-Unmanned System (L2MUMS) which allows for video and data transmission between player controlled OH-58Ds and AI UAVs.

Q: What price tag is it going to have?
A: 69,99 USD

Q: Will it have a George AI?
A: The OH-58D will not have a ‘George’ AI on release but this feature is our highest priority after release.

Q: Will it be on Early Access or Pre-Purchase? If so, will there be a discount?
A: The OH-58D will not see an early access release or pre-purchase period.

Q: Will a paintkit be available on release?
A: This is very unlikely

Q: What weapons will be available for this aircraft?
A: M3P .50-caliber machine gun, various 2.75 inch rockets (including laser guided APKWS), AGM-114K Hellfire, Air-To-Air-Stinger missiles and the trusty M4 carbine on the dash.

Q: Can we throw the smoke grenades that are on the dashboard?
A: Yes

Q: Does the Kiowa have a HMD (Helmet Mounted Display) or HUD?
A: The OH-58D has an Optical Display Assembly (ODA) (also referred to as Anvis Display Symbology System – ADSS) which is a helmet mounted sight for use with Night Vision Goggles. Optionally the Pilot Display Unit (PDU) can be installed which provides a limited HUD for weapons symbology.

Q: Does the Kiowa have a data cartridge?
A: Yes – the Personal Computer Data Transfer System (PC-DTS) is a data cartridge system that can save and load data to/from a JSON file. The saved data includes Routes, Waypoints, Target Points, Radio frequencies, Notepad data and more.

Q: Will the FARP Asset pack that was shown in 2019 be released with the Kiowa?
A: No, sadly it will not. While it seemed like a great idea back in 2019, the implications of having to support and maintain 30+ assets indefinitely have the potential to become a burden on our small team.

Q: Are force feedback controllers supported?
A: Testing this is in progress.

Q: Is the flight model of the Gazelle representative of the Kiowa’s flight model?
A: The flight model (and all other areas of development) of the OH-58D has undergone a rigorous testing process with both our internal SMEs and those from Eagle Dynamics. During the entire development process we have had access to – and direct feedback from – experienced Kiowa pilots and crew chiefs who contribute directly to the validation of the flight model and systems of the OH-58D.

Vedendo come sta in hovering penso che stavolta non m'in****no più...
in uno scenario come DCS che neanche il 30mm dell apache è cosi utilizzato..figuriamoci il .50 fisso.. :LOL:
già..e penso sia l'arma che rende questo modulo molto combinazione se vogliamo unitamente al rack doppio di stinger :giggle:
Alla fine ce l'hanno fatta a partorirlo? Dire che è stato un travaglio, è un eufemismo... :eek:
