*“With the help of the pilots we are currently evaluating details, which also includes the refinement
and corrections of the avionics system of the aircraft. During the coming weeks, we hope to inte-
grate the moving map feature to the avionics and also finetune the weapons and the flight model
of the Hellfire missiles and will integrate another rocket type, that we have not shown or talked
about yet, that will make it possible to properly engage infantry and light armoured vehicle units in
DCS World.

During the past months we have also worked on certain aspects of the flight model that either
needed corrections or refinements. For example, the torque values of forward flight at all possible
altitudes, speeds and temperatures. Currently, we are working on the hover torque requirements
to accurately mimic real aircraft as closely as possible. We are also looking at the flight character-
istics below ETL, effective translational lift.

Performance pages have recently been added to the DCS Kiowa Warrior MFD, which will enable
you to ask the system to calculate your power for certain flight envelopes in level and hover flight.
Night vision has also been added, which we plan to update prior to release with a new feature never
before seen in DCS World Helicopters, but we do not want to reveal anything yet, because we can
not yet foresee obstacles we may come across that might delay such a special night vision feature.
We are confident that on release, we will have realised the most accurate Kiowa Warrior representation
in the game market.

At the moment we have 19 US Army liveries of various Kiowa Warrior troops, these include older
aircraft markings. 16 Croatian army liveries were added as well, which is the complete fleet of the
Kiowa Warriors they operate, including the tail number 327 that crashed on the 27th of January 2020
and resulted in the unfortunate loss of the aircraft and crew. Our condolences go out to the family and
friends of the crew.

Since everyone was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, our production has slowed down a bit during
the past weeks, because we as a team were also affected. Nevertheless we are back to normal again
and our team is back to normal status because we have the desire to keep our promise for a release in
2020, which also includes the time required for the quality verification process by Bell Helicopters.
That said, we are also currently working on 3 stand-alone campaigns for the DCS Kiowa Warrior.

Finally we hope everyone stays safe and is excited for the release of DCS: Kiowa Warrior.”
