Another significant mod for DCS World has just come out and its a big one for helicopter fans as it brings to life the UH-60L Blackhawk helicopter. Let’s check it out!
EFM flight model, beautiful visuals
Released by my friend Cubeboy over on Skyward Flight Media yesterday, the mod is a team effort between a couple of developers including Cubeboy, Kinkkujuustovoileipa and Jonas. Among its features are detailed 3D visuals, quality textures, almost fully clickable cockpit, and 12-liveries. It even has optional fuel tanks for enhanced range as well as in-flight refueling capabilities.
Impressively, the helicopter is plugged into DCS World’s EFM flight model which puts it at a step higher than earlier mods that were using the simplified flight model only. This all done without access to the SDK or official support so whatever state it’s in is impressive enough to me.
Spudknocker has also done a nice first impressions review of the mod which gives you a taste of what it can do.
