UH-1H Argo, is a story driven campaign consisting of you in the role of an experienced Greek UH-1H pilot with many years of service in the Hellenic Army Aviation.
Recently you and a number of active Huey pilots are transferred in the Hellenic Navy.

The campaign starts on July 2017. NATO Exercise “Sea Breeze” is taking place once more in the Black Sea. This year, Georgia’s Batumi port is being used as a base for all the allied naval forces. The countries that participate in the exercise are Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Lithuania, Italy, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Ukraine, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

One year after the US-led coalition’s operations in Iraq’s city of Mosul, Georgia accepted a large wave of refugees arriving through Turkey. NATO wanted to show its support by conducting the exercise in Georgian Territory.

For the needs of “Sea Breeze” exercise, Hellenic Navy’s frigate ARGO FFG-46, sailed towards Batumi in order to provide support to the NATO Fleet and the rest of the Greek Forces.

Recently Greece successfully negotiated with the United States Government, about a military partially funded assistance program, which included the purchase of 4x retired Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigates of the US Navy. The frigates were modernized last year with new Radar & Phalanx systems to get ready for foreign sales.

You and your UH-1H were assigned to the new Hellenic Navy Frigate ARGO FFG-46 which was previously known as USS Rentz (FFG-46). The frigate is still operating under US flag until its crew completes its training to the new weapon systems.

Your Huey is getting refueled and ready for the exercise.

New DCS: Normandy 1944 Map Videos
Although the Normandy map was built to support our growing line of World War II products, there is no reason it cannot also be used for the modern aircraft of DCS World. These two videos show one such example: an Su-25 attack mission.

These are un-edited looks at the Normandy map that we believe shows off the outstanding level of detail and the new lighting system.
