If you're referring to the HMD 30mm engagement it doesn't, no assists for HMD 30 engagments. 

 

I think that's correct also because the shooter was clearly back-leading the targets.

All I was saying is HMD shots aren't compensated for, TADs engagements are.  You can see in the lower left hand corner its P-HMD meaning he's using the HMD as a sight. So you have to manually lead with your head.  There's kind of a neat ballistic affect (really a combination of two) that occurs when aiming on the left or right for hmd shots and that appears to be incorporated to some degree as well which is cool.

Yup - in terms of ballistics....   moving target vs. moving shooter.  Moving lateral target you aim out in front of it.  

 

Moving shooter, stationary target you have to back lead (aim behind) to compensate for the speed of the helicopter. 

 

It makes sense that the TADS would be able to do this while the IHADSS itself wouldn't be able to.

i think its super awesome to have real apache pilots here, and its a joy to read such detailed infos about it!

kinda insane how amazing this forum is! thanks a lot guys 🙂

It is, holding the cross hair off target to compensate for bullet drop is awesome.

It requires skill that in the DCS virtual world, is very much needed.

wags mentions options for 3 map types, Chart map, satellite, and digital moving map.....

 

SO maybe we can get TAMMAC for the F/A18C which has similar additional options too?

This bird will be released by the end of the yer as ED stated. Normally pre purchase periods last about 3 months at least.

Since we are entering last 3 months of the year, does it mean no pre purchase for this module or it will be released at the very last days of the year?

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.

Tkanks for the info!

What do you get if you preorder? Just curious, or its just a pay now thing and forget about it until it releases.

Usually a 30% discount. This will be reduced to 20% when early access starts. At least this was the case for the Hind.

to be super honest from my side here: as long as i dont see the ah64 on the dcs website, and as long as i am unable to pay a real penny for it, i dont trust these guys that the apache module is actually REAL! 😝😝😝

 

so far, this whole topic is nothing more than a wet dream.

 

as soon as i pay real money for it, i can really know that this whole thing is not just an aprils joke 😬

 

i know, that sounds super weird.

but for me this is all too good to be true.

i think that is the reason why i am so hyped for the pre order start.
