Bohemia Interactive has launched Take On Helicopters: Hinds – the first official DLC for Take On Helicopters. Bringing in a variety of helicopter gun-and-gameplay, Take On Helicopters: Hinds enlists players to become the pilot of the most iconic helicopter gunship ever: the Hind.
Take On Helicopters: Hinds presents three highly detailed variants of the Hind: the Mil Mi-24P, Mil Mi-24V and Mil Mi-24 SuperHind Mk.III – featuring interactive cockpits, retractable landing gear systems and various weapon loadouts. They are accompanied by brand new singleplayer challenges, which showcase the various roles a Hind can play on the battlefield. Five new Time Trials invite players to master the Hind’s distinctive flight dynamics. Last but not least, a new multiplayer death match scenario lets players battle one another as pilots, gunners, or both.
Executive Producer Lukas Milacek said:
“There’s a helicopter saying: “If it’s ugly, it’s British; if it’s weird, it’s French; and if it’s ugly and weird, it’s Russian.” This certainly goes for the Hind. Nonetheless, the ‘flying tank’ – as Soviet pilots refer to it – has also been one of the greatest accomplishments in helicopter history. Naturally, we were excited about bringing this military legend into Take On Helicopters.”
For a faithful recreation of the Hind’s flight characteristics, the development team reached out for feedback from Czech Air Force helicopter pilot, Capt Marcel Kica, whose 221. ‘Tiger’ Squadron was involved in the training of Afghani Hind pilots. He was amazed by the outcome.
Captain Marcel Kica added:
“The flight model in Take On Helicopters: Hinds, without any of the game’s assists, feels incredibly authentic. I was impressed with how the development team has managed to capture the exhilarating experience of piloting such a heavy helicopter as the Hind. For most people, this’ll probably be as close they’ll get to flying this merciless gunship into combat.”
Take On Helicopters: Hinds is now available for 12.99 EUR/16.99 USD/10.99 GBP at Bohemia’s Store, Steam, Desura, Gamersgate, Aerosoft, Wilco Publishing and Impulse Driven. There is also a bundle pack available, consisting of the vanilla game and Take On Helicopters: Hinds.
