Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,
We are delighted to announce that arguably the most iconic helicopter gunship in the world is now available for pre-order with a 30% discount. DCS: Mi-24 Hind takes helicopter gameplay to a new level and sets a new standard for DCS in cockpit look and feel. We hope you will enjoy it. Check out our Hind pre-order video here.
Derived from the Mi-8, the Hind airframe is fitted with a streamlined retractable undercarriage and stub-wings that provide lift at high speeds as well as a structure for attaching guided and unguided munitions. This massive machine combines firepower and troop-carrying capabilities, making it a force to be reckoned with.
Our new Volumetric Cloud System requires a significant rewrite of our radar, sensor and weapon system code. To integrate the clouds smoothly, the process will be split into stages. The Clouds will initially be released as a purely visual feature, with the possibility to select a wide variety of weather presets from the Mission Editor. After the initial release, we will finalise the work on radar and weapon systems as well as how AI behaves in the new weather conditions. This is particularly relevant for close air combat line-of-sight behaviour.
Please note, DCS: F/A-18C Hornet and DCS: The Channel will be released within a short time frame of Open Beta 2.7.0. which we have pushed out to the 7th of April 2021 due to the heavy testing and 3rd party integration requirements.
Thank you for your passion and support.

Known for its great exploits by the airborne units of the Soviet Army during the 1980 Soviet–Afghan War, the Hind is tough, durable and packs a heavy punch.
DCS: Mi-24P Hind is a simulation of the legendary Mi-24 attack helicopter developed in the USSR and first introduced operationally in 1972. It has seen extensive action over the past 40 years as an effective combat air support helicopter. Fast, reliable and loved by pilots, this incredible machine still serves in more than 50 countries!
DCS: Mi-24P is an opportunity to touch history and try yourself as a pilot of the legendary helicopter!
Work is progressing steadily and we are excited to announce the list of features planned for Early Access release. Check out the In Development Screenshots.

The Mi-24P Early Access is planned for release in the 2nd quarter of 2021.
We are currently working on new reflections using extended pre-calculated light technology.
The Mi-24P cockpit is roomy, pressurized and chemically and biologically filtered, making it a comfortable place to fight and operate in.

I just got some new reference material. Google Books used to have online previews of these with about fifty percent of each book available but they recently took them down, so I went looking and found these used editions for a reasonable price and in good condition, they may have been library reverence books. If any modders want some information from these books feel free PM me about it.
I intend to eventually get the 1989 first edition and the 2006 fifth edition.
