  • Summary: Lock on target - 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.

    Take On Helicopters: Hinds comes with ENG/GER/CZ/IT/FR/SP localization, features 3 difficulty modes (beginner/trainee/expert) and includes optimized controls for mouse-and-keyboards, gamepads and joysticks.

    Almost an abusive downloadable content trading on the very own content of ArmA 2 without scruples. Still, it's appropriate to recommend this game to those admirers of ArmA 2 and its air missions with the Hind helicopter. Setting and pilot in the Take On Helicopter game is working better and it's even more catchy than in ArmA.

    This is absolutely broken on Steam, the DLC will not install correctly. I just recently re-installed this and, oh yeah now I remember why I hated this. A year ago, I did finally manage to get the DLC working after googling around and running commands from windows prompts, but... why?

    Why haven't they fixed this known bug in over a year's time now?

    If you want to fly sim helicopters, then I suggest the excellent DCS World. It has actual working DLC modules for KA-50, Mi-8/Mi-17 (my personal favorite), and a Huey. All of these are still in beta, but they actually work!
