AH-64 Apache Longbow Attack Helicopter...
 
Having a new helicopter flight model such as the AH-64 Apache Longbow would be a cool development direction. I am sure that many flyboys (and flygirls) from the Americas would really dig this.

Are there any such plans for the future?

If enough people from the DCS community tag on to this suggestion, maybe DCS will catch on to making it a reality in the near future.

See you in the Blue DCS skies...

Would LOVE to see ED do a Longbow.


I think it would come down to how much information they could get on a real one (Same problem with the Russian Ka-52, which I drool over. :p) Probably still a lot of restricted systems on it. However, the new systems being made for the F-18 / F-16 would probably reflect a lot of systems in the longbow. So, who knows?

More likely to get replies - and be seen - if you put the wish for a AH-64 in the general wish-list, not in the Ka-50 thread.

Maybe we could have the "Export" version of the AH-64. A bit like the JF-17 which is an airplane for Export and therefore, theoretically, easier to access. This is probably why we will soon have it.

depends which Ah64.

Ah64A is essentially obsolete.

the AH64A manual isnt even any of the restricted classes ( which in itslef technically isnt a classification level as it doesn't require security clearance). Its rated A : approved for public release, distribution unlimited

SO Ah64A could be easily done. Ah64D block 1 and block 2 manuals up until 2003 revisions have level C restriction. Same level as F16C or F/A18A/B/C/D manual which would have necessitated ED to have such information, and those have been simulated in DCS.

So i wouldn't necessarily discount a possibility of a Ah64D block 1 or early block 2 even if its a US army version.

ED have already said that it's not a matter of if, but WHEN.

They'll do it :).

If it is true, it will certainly be after the Cobra that will serve to develloper code / tools for then, I hope, develop more easily / quickly the AH-64. A bit like the F-18 and the F-16 where the devellopement of one greatly helped the other.

Sadly the Cobra and the Apache don't share anything in common like the F-18 and F-16 do.

Could look at the Westlands version of the D model I suppose ( bigger engines, navalised, doesn't regularily crash ), but apparently getting usable docs over here for vaguely recent aircraft is a near-impossible chore :S still, an avenue of attack. Think the Cobra will be more fun, frankly.
