This is a lengthy tutorial and an in-depth one that gives us a complete look at AGM-114 Hellfire missile employment. The 20 minute video covers various modes, methods of laser tracking, and employment types from both seats of the aircraft. No doubt a must watch for AH-64 virtual pilots.

    The problem with the Apache videos is that after I watch them I feel Winnie the Pooh looking at a Rubik’s cube.

      Haha! Yeah, this is a complex aircraft with some learning curves required. Still, Matt’s going through this feature by feature and there’s bound to be a list of simpler ways to get going with these without having to know absolutely everything about it.

    I gotta say, I’m feeling like Black Shark is my comfy-cozy security blanket 😉
    Especially when v3 launches with Fox 2’s 🙂

    Even with decent time in Hornet, Warthog and BS2, I feel like Apache is gonna be a considerable challenge. Very much looking forward to this piece of Humble Pie!

      I know what you mean! I suspect that for some the Apache is going to represent their module and they will know it inside and out. More casual helicopter pilots may want to look elsewhere.

    On a whole other note – Does anyone even know, if we will be able to buy new modules with Swift getting cut from the russian banks?

      Although I think there’s still some room for uncertainty on that, it looks like Eagle Dynamics finances are run through international banks that don’t seem to touch on Russia. ED has a Swiss HQ and business units in the US and UK.

      The problem might be paying the developers who are in Russia (which, as I understand is not the entire team) rather than us buying modules.
