DCS: AH-64D early access guide and ‘getting airborne’ video released

Two new pieces of DCS: AH-64D news coming to us with a new video on how to get airborne in the AH-64D as well as the release of the early access guide. Let’s have a look!

Get flying

The first piece of news is a new video that came out yesterday with Matt Wagner talking us through how to get airborne and fly with the DCS: AH-64D. If you’re new to helicopters, you’ll want to brush up on terms like the cyclic, anti-torque control and collective. I assure you, these terms sound more complicated than they actually are.

Get learning

Flying it is one thing but most of us are going to need to brush up on systems and here we have a new reference to work from. Today, Eagle Dynamics released the DCS: AH-64D Early Access Guide.

Spanning pages 361, the guide provides a detailed accounting of all the history, sensors, weapons, systems, and basic tactics of our AH-64D. The guide is a work-in-progress, and as new systems are added to the module, the guide will be updated. We believe, more than anything else so far, that the guide illustrates the extreme amount of detail and care that has gone into this project. Enjoy.

The release of the early access guide likely means that we’re very close to a release. In the meantime, we can brush up on our knowledge with the 361 page guide. Check out the announcement here.

    Um…since when does a Quick Start guide go in for over 360 pages? 😉

    Looking forward to this, though it’s gonna hurt like Warthog did at first 🙂

      I’m sure the full guide will be twice that or more 😅

      Yeah I think this will be a slow process for me!
