Today DCS World developer Eagle Dynamics released the early access version of its newest major module, the Mi-24 Hind.
As you’ve seen in previous videos the infamous Soviet attack helicopter features great simulation depth even in this in-progress stage.
It can be purchased at the developer’s own store for $55.99.
