The quiet is deafening!

Simon Pearson (ED business dev. director) confirmed the Hind was a Q1 2021 release in a recent interview, based on latest info of course so subject to change. I also hope both come a separate intervals so I have time to learn one before the other comes...

 

I have watched that interview, but I have not heard him saying that. He said the devs will still be busy with the Hind in Q1, but that doesn't mean it won't release into early access before that.

DCS Panavia Tornado (IDS) really needs to be a thing!

I might have misunderstood or misremembered. My understanding was, at some point, he said the Mosquito was coming before end of 2020, and Hind in Q1. But you might be correct, I am not 100% sure.

No you were correct. Heared it too.

I just skipped through the interview:

 

About Minute 43 and thereafter on upcoming modules.

He said the Mossie was still planned for release before Christmas.

The Hind P is then currently planned to 2021 Q1.

 

Wouldn't surprise me, if it is even further away, from the way he put it.

2 Days ago:

We aim for a 2020 release but, granted, 2020 is almost over and there is a possibility we won't make it. Yet we stand by the fact that we won't be releasing an early access module or a module with many features missing or half done. If it takes longer to get it right, we will take our time to do just that. We want the release to be feature complete and mission ready. That is not to say we won't be adding additional features later on.

 

As to where we are in the development process; We're still working hard to adjust the flight model. All values in all situations have to be correct. This is a very tedious process, mostly crunching numbers. While this is something that can hardly be shown, it makes a world of difference when flying the Kiowa Warrior. The end of this process is in sight though and from that point on we will be working on implementing and adjusting system specific features.

Thanks for posting that update here, where was it originally?

 

Great to see this kind of commitment to a full release, DCS has too many early access modules as it stands.

"...we will be working on implementing and adjusting system specific features"

 

Can someone explain what they meant by this? Features specific to the user's pc system? Like force feedback, VR, etc?

 

No, PC mean Kiowa Warrior features i.e. MFD menus/logic that need further refinement, the moving map, etc., etc.

That sounds like there is quite a bit left to do.

 

The live streams of it last year made me think 6 months or so to release.

 

Looking forward to it nonetheless!

Ah...sounds like less of a sprint to the finish line than I had hoped. Oh well, so we wait. Thanks Ramsay

Waiting is what us Chopper guys do.

They sometimes post information (albeit not much on updates), but are pretty active on their discord.
