You make our dreams come true

I beg to differ. I am super stoked about an AH-64D.

Thank you Eagle Dynamics  :notworthy:

Having an Apache AND a Kiowa is going to make for some really awesome missions. Might be time to get into the MP stuff.

I don't know if it's the G2 or the patch that dropped yesterday, but the Persian Gulf map is looking exquisite. The desert and mountains are noticeably more detailed.

So I guess you'll be ok with another decade then :-D

Honestly - The Mi24 was announced, what...2 years ago? And how much of that have we seen?

I really hate when ED does this. Hype is stupid and it always leads to upset with DCS.

Nah, itíll be out in 2 years maybe less but in early access with 50% of the features complete.  Thing is, in that release state itíll still be the best sim Apache hands down.

I'll eat my words-

I played the Huey in multicrew tonight and it was awesome.

These aircraft- Gazelle, Mi-8, UH-1, were designed to be CREWED, and its nice to finally have a crew working together. Multicrew should be a standard going forward for all aircraft.

Yeah its the new pass of the map that got included. More updates will follow.

Pretty stoked for the Longbow as well!

As for your WW2 question; I think it already was quite the experience. Its just limited from the scripted mission setup as opposed to something dynamic, just like the modern stuff.
Also, the new dmg model is coming to WW2 assets first. So there is that.

Heatblur should spin off a division just to develop Jester AI for all of the multi-crewed planes and helos.  An Apache with just one person in it - I have to wonder how well that will actually work.

The F-15E is also being developed without a WSO AI. As far as I know, there is no word on how they are developing the Apache and whether it will have a crew AI or not.

I'm sure they'll figure the 2 seater AI out.  Thing that sucks about Jester is you can only fly human pilot with jester RIO in MP.  You can only be Jester with AI pilot in SP.  You cant seat swap on the fly in MP unless the server allows it.  So these limitations will be interesting for the Apache.  Best will always be to multi crew an apache.  But not everyone has a bro available to multi crew or sometimes I want to just be gunner and blow stuff up or switch between the 2 in an MP mission.  Will be interesting to see how these details come about.  DCS Apache will be epic either way.

I saw something floating around that summarized an interview with Kate and she mentioned that there will be a co-pilot AI in the Apache. Also, early access release functionality will be closer to the AH-64A model with the Longbow capabilities coming online later on in development.
