Where can I find the latest information on the DCS: AH-64D?

Follow this thread here for all the latest updates: https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/280176-dcs-ah-64d-mini-updates/


Store page: DCS: AH-64D (digitalcombatsimulator.com)


What version of the AH-64D are we getting?

The specific avionics version that is being modeled is 9.1, which was fielded to US Army AH-64D Block II aircraft in 2005.


What Armament will be available for the DCS: AH-64D?

Once we finalize the armament options, will will create a post in the DCS: AH-64D section. For now we can say: AGM-114K Hellfire, 2.75" Hydra rockets, and the AWS 30mm chain gun.


Will the Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS) be included?

The APKWS was not fielded to the AH-64 until late 2015. Our AH-64D is a mid-Block II in the 2005-to-2010-time frame. This would fall well outside the version of the AH-64D that we are simulating. Further, needed information like its weapon pages are not publicly available. As such, it is not in our current planning.


Will the DCS: AH-64D be multi-crew?
Yes, at early access release.


Will the DCS: AH-64D have a 'Petrovich' type AI option?
Yes, it will have a modified version best suited to the AH-64D.


Will the radome be removeable?
Yes, this will be a Mission Editor option at early access release.


Will the AN/APG-78 radar be modeled?
Yes, but this and the AGM-114L radar Hellfire will come later in early access period.


Will I be able to load or unload the AN/APG-78 radar?

Yes, even at early access launch, you can decide to mount it from the Mission Editor.


Will air-to-air missiles like Stingers be included?

Whilst the AH-64A conducted test firings of the Stinger (and Sidewinder), the Stinger was never fielded to the US Army AH-64 fleet. Instead, the Hellfire can be used against slow-moving aerial targets and the ends of the stub wings now mount CMWS detectors instead of Stinger missile attachments.


Where is the guide?

The manual isn't ready yet, but will be released at, or shortly before, the early access launch.


Will there be instructional video?
Yes, as the product matures, you will see us release instructional videos, you can see sneak peeks now here.


Will the IHADSS/HDU be restricted to just the right eye in VR?

No, you can set it to left, right, or both eyes.
