Default Bell 206/TH-57/OH-58/TH-67

Probably one of the most prolific helicopters ever made. You will find this air frame in every corner of the Earth. This helicopter has been used for every role you can think of, but especially important in any aspiring helicopter pilots military career. In the U.S. Navy/Marine Corps it is known as the TH-57, and is the primary training helicopter before moving on to any of the combat choppers that we employ. In Vietnam, the Original OH-58A was employed as a scout and Liaison platform, and of course the civilian version the B-206 Should be instantly recognizable to just about every one.

If fixed wing trainers get so much attention, and now Eagle Dynamics are giving the green light for Civilian Aircraft, The Bell 206 series has to be up there on the priority list.

Just my two cents. -Woog

i think the priority is where they can get specs and the developer willing to do a particular aircraft.

I would love that! That’s the aircraft I learned to fly on and the 58 was probably the most fun I’ve ever had in a helicopter.

Wouldn't the Huey be the most prolific? Tied for 1st if nothing else?

I think the Huey is more prolific because of Vietnam but the OH-58/bell206 for a lot of military aviators is what we learned on. Prolific I guess for different reasons. I can’t tell you how exciting it is to fly the 58 doors off for the first time low level it is just amazing. I get why people may not want 58a/c in the game because it is not that useful for how we play the game but it still would be fun nonetheless.

But this is what Polychop has been announcing officially last year on their facebook page. So why posting a request?

Because it's uncertain if it's actually coming to DCS world. I'd like to see it - and the 206 as well.

58D is pretty different from the 58a/c and unfortunately I don’t think they are making the 58D anymore for DCS https://www.helisimmer.com/news/poly...e-shows-oh-58/ the 58D would be a lot more useful but I will never turn down a helicopter.

There is no decision made yet concearning DCS and the revealed behind the curtains project.
Do not spread panic among the community, please. Just because you have not seen any news about it for 6 weeks does not mean that nothing is happening in the background.
