@Sephyrius:

I did not know that there was such a VOD pay stuff in there, so appologies for that.

We will come to that in a different post though.

About your 206 experiance, that is nice to hear. One thing though, 206 and 58d Kiowa Warrior are defenately not feeling anything alike and this is confirmed by all the testers that, cause they have all gone through the TF67, which is a 206

Looking forward to checking it out.

And alright, hoped it would at least have a general similarity. I think it would be useful for people to know what setup your real life pilots use the module with, for example the twitchy and very sensitive feel of the Gazelle might be a completely different experience for a $1000 floor mounted helicopter cyclic and your average joe with his T16000M.

On that note, Im guessing that there wont be any FFB support for the Kiowa?

Anyone here don't like the "no rifle firing" decision? I've been reading people saying it's a deal breaker, but I don't understand why. Maybe if DCS infantry were like that ground based sim/game, but right now, what benefit would firing a rifle out the door bring?

While it would be cool I'm not upset about not being able to use the rifle. In the real world Kiowa pilots were deadly with them, but what we would end up with in dcs would be something like the door gun implementation but only semi automatic. And with how the infantry is in DCS I don't think its much of a loss. Then you have to consider that the ai would have to fly while you gun, and there not going to get you close enough to hit targets with a rifle. You'd have to have multicrew first.

I just went to Ponyhoof (rather known as facebook in its uncool and unmodded state) which I normally don't do on a regular basis anymore and stumbled across this comment to the latest announcement and thought I'd share it with you who haven't picked this up already:

So we now can watch the VOD of his OH-58D stream at

without having to pay for a subscription. Thanks for opening up the content to the public!
