Met that paywall as well, wouldn't want to pay that if I don't watch the channel regularly. Would have loved to see the Kiowa in action...

Actually this was the first time I've ever come across this. Usually I can watch VOD recordings of Twitch streams like up to a week after it happened without getting charged at all.

It certainly looked like it was "hanging from the rotor" which at least looks about right.

Other notable points were:

Rain drops on the glass.
The rocket pods had some interesting configurations. One had what appears to be an over/under load with extended tubes in the middle three tubes. The other pod had some very long rockets which looked rather like APKWS. This is speculative and of course all this is subject to change, and they were not able to discuss this during the stream due to NDA.

The M4's will not be operable. Smoke grenades are.

Doors will not be a feature. To paraphrase the streamer "The doors appear on the helicopter when delivered to the unit, then they're thrown in a room somewhere and never used again"

Sounded like several Hellfire variants are modelled.

Still no plans for multicrew but are watching what ED's doing with the UH-1H.

Other caveats were that the rotors are not finished yet (which is why they look a bit weird) and there isn't any FADEC implmented yet. Bear this in mind when commenting on any videos.

Also this will not be released this year, there will be no EA and it should be more or less complete at release.

TBH I can wait a little bit, with the JF-17 hitting tomorrow and the Supercarrier expected soon as well as Syria. I don't have all that cash at once, especially not in December

And I do want to get things as early as possible

But after reading Pickle's post, I got even more excited for the thing... and eventually, also the rework of the Gazelle so it will finally pay off

I agree. However, I am also of the opinion that most actual pilots also do not have the experience to evaluate the FM in meaningful ways. I believe it, additionally, requires at least some knowledge of and experience with DCS in particular and PC-based flight simulation in general.

Based on what I saw/what was said in the live stream, looks like it'll be a D variant Kiowa Warrior. I didn't see the nose mounted camera system of the F model and its various "confirmed" weapons list so far indicates a newer Warrior model.

One thing is for sure, Poly isn't messing around with this module. It's gonna be as accurate to real life as possible through this sim thanks to a load of real world pilots/maintainers that are providing them information and alpha flight testing input. It's going to set a new bar in terms of helo realism for DCS. No question.

Dont be sorry, it's not your fault.

Im just disappointed in how poorly this is being handled by Polychop. Who in their right mind does a reveal like this behind a paywall?

The Kiowa is gonna be interesting to a degree in that there's a whole lot more Bell 206 pilots out there who, even if they've not flown the Kiowa itself, should still have a general idea of how it's expected to behave. Got to fly one myself this summer, was a blast, and it was cool to experience how well DCS training transferred over to maneuvering.
