We are delighted to update you on the status of the pilot models coming to the AH-64D for the cockpit 1st person view. We understand that this is a highly requested and important part of the whole immersion. Check out the Development Screenshots.

In the screenshots you can see the Pilot and Co-pilot Gunner models for the first person perspective. We have completed both Multicam and USP camouflages and we are currently working on gesture animations and fitting the modeles into the cockpit. The basic movements for the pilot and operator are complete but there are still more advanced gestures like transfer of control, idles, working with MPD, etc. left to do. Please check out the Development Screenshots.

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,:pilotfly: 

We continue to push hard on the Viper and some notable changes include the addition of the Destination page and Offset Aimpoints that allow you to adjust and create Steerpoints without having to first select your active Steerpoint.

Automatic Carrier Landing System for the Hornet

For nighttime and low visibility Case III recoveries in the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet, we have added the Automatic Carrier Landing System (ACLS) that incorporates the Link-4 datalink (D/L) that allows two-way communication between the aircraft, the carrier and the aircraft beacon (BCN). When used with Supercarrier, this allows direction to the Marshal Stack and Carrier with realistic radio voice communications. 

Watch Matt Wagner’s instructional video on F/A-18C Hornet and Supercarrier ACLS. Also please view the video of how to use the F/A-18C Hornet and the free CVN-74 John C. Stennis together.
