About This Content

The UH-1 Huey is one of the most iconic and recognizable helicopters in the world. Having served extensively as a transport and armed combat support helicopter in the Vietnam War, the Huey continues to perform a wide variety of military and civilian missions around the world today.

"DCS: UH-1H Huey" will feature the same incredible level of modelling detail as the existing Ka-50 Black Shark, A-10C Warthog and P-51D Mustang DCS aircraft and it will be online compatible with them. Working in close partnership with actual UH-1H operators and experts, The Fighter Collection and Belsimtek have leveraged their unique skills and experience to provide the most dynamic and true to life conventional helicopter experience available on the PC.

Key Features of "DCS: UH-1H Huey" include:

  • Unmatched flight physics providing the most realistic and dynamic conventional helicopter experience on the PC.
  • Multiple player positions, including pilot, co-pilot, and door gunner.
  • Accurate and highly detailed 3D cockpit featuring six-degrees-of-freedom technology.
  • Interactive cockpit controls that allow you to operate the systems using the mouse.
  • Highly detailed UH-1H external 3D model, liveries, and weapons.
  • Realistic modelling of the UH-1H instruments, weapons, engine, radios, fuel, electrical, and hydraulic systems.
  • Accurate and engaging audio environment based on actual UH-1H sound recordings.
  • Developed in close cooperation with real UH-1H operators.
  • Missions that include transport and combat support operations.
  • Training that includes interactive and video lessons.
  • Multiplayer coop mode for crew members of the same helicopter under development for a later update.

Another "must have" for any flight sim enthusiast. As usual you will get exceptionally well modeled helicopter with fully working virtual cockpit and - most importantly - great flight model tested by real world pilots.
Also, you can arm your Huey with gatling guns and unguided missiles to recreate your favorite scene from Vietnam movies.

Highest quality helicopter simulator out there and imo a must have for anyone interested in flight. I think even fixed wing pilots would love the challenge and fluidity of flying the UH-1H. It is quite hard to learn, but a blast to fly. From what i've read, it can take 40 hours to get really good at hovering and doing more complex maneuvers. Personally it didnt take me that long because of past experience, but it shouldnt take too long to be able to enjoy this dlc. Just practise a bit every now and then and it will become second nature if you dedicate yourself.

Excellent simulator but please note - it's very hard at first and you need quite a bit of practice. Also recommend a TRACK IR to use with this and a good joystick and throttle.

Landing the Huey takes a lot of practice, your first few attempts will probably end up with a VRS crash where the helicopter just sinks to the ground!

Very satisfying however once you manage to make some landings. Great Graphics, Great Sound, authentic simulator!

Extremely realistic. It's like good ol' 'Nam. The only thing this addon needs is a Vietnam map. Flying the Huey in the caucasus region isnt that immersive. Also, this addon is a bit ressource heavy and gets you low fps while flying at reasonably low altitudes.
Overall, very good, realistic and fun addon.
