We’ve got a new Eagle Dynamics Matt Wagner tutorial on the DCS: AH-64D Apache and this one is a detailed explanation of the AH-64’s integrated helmet mounted display. Let’s check it out!
Training gets serious
Known as IHADSS (Integrated Helmet and Display Sighting System), this is a key feature of of the helicopter and the video’s 11 minute run time is a good indication of the amount of detail that Matt Wagner is going into for this video.
The IHADSS has an impressive number of features. In addition to the usual information that you might expect from a HUD on an F-16 or F/A-18, the system also has special modes to aid with hovering and initiating pop-up attacks in confined areas. Additionally, it can be integrated with the FLIR system that will let you look around with impressive night vision augmentation that also lets you see through the helicopter. It’s impressive!
So, check out the video and get yourself one step more prepared for this advanced helicopter.
