DCS: AH-64D Discussion Thread

Today's newsletter says the rotor mounted FCR will be available starting from early access. Would that be the dome shape mast on top of the rotor system. That is awesome news if that it is same thing.

That external model must be quite the challenge to get right, I bet, but also offer quite a lot of satisfaction for the modellers when they *do* get it right 😀

No it didn't: it says it will be "made available during early access" aka before the end of EA, whenever that may be.
For example, if the Apache will be in early access for 2 years but the Longbow radar will be available at 1 year 11 months, they will have kept their promise.

Thank you fellow for the elaborate clarification. I guess I should have use "during Early Access" instead of "starting from Early Access" in my post.

Eagerly waiting to see the Apache unfold into reality in dcs.

Actually in this last teaser video it says: Coming 2021

 

Looks like it's coming along nicely. I wouldn't be surprised if they announced the presale soon.

I haven't been this choked up from a video since Old Yeller <sniff>

My old comments from DCS Forums:

 

Posted May 26, 2015
If ED ever makes a PFM/ASM of the AH-64D, I'll have to dig a slit trench in my office and buy a two year supply of beefaroni.. only to find next time I take a break that my wife has moved out and my dog is bonding with the neighbors.

 

Posted July 7, 2015
AH-64.. I'd gnaw on my monitor and whine like a mutt.

 

Posted February 20, 2018
Me if DCS:AH-64 ever happens: "I don't remember what day I lost my job, my house, my cars, or my wife. I don't even know if today is shower day.  I can tell you the launch date of DCS: AH-64 Apache though. Ahh what a glorious day! Hey, does someone on your news crew have a sandwich or something? Yeah ok, I'll take off my VR goggles for a sandwich."

 

Posted January 24, 2018
..I think my vote would go to the AH-64 instead of the KA-52. The notion does put a fear in me though. I will, very likely, lose my job and my marriage if ED puts out an Apache module.

Has there been any news about if there will be training missions from Early Access/release or if they will first come afterwards.

 

If the Hind EA release is anything to go by, then at least a couple of training missions should be available at release. Probably just the basic stuff, like start-up, taxi, take-off and landing. 

 

*disclaimer* this is just an educated guess.

Has anything been confirmed about robbie tanks?

The robbie tank appears in the fuel page in a screenshot:InkedIn_Dev_04.06.2021.2_LI.jpg

In some others screenshots we see the Apache carries 1200 30mm rounds (no robbie tank):

So my conclusion is that we will have the option to add or remove the robbie tank.

Another mini-update is up. I wonder how that thing will work in VR? 🙂
