Version 2.9 (Open Beta) of DCS is upon us and, among a series of great general features, there are a few that are interesting for helicopter pilots.

DCS will bring a new and improved integrated voice chat. Rotor downwash now affects vegetation and creates more realistic dust effects and, among other aircraft, the AH-64D Apache will come with a new level of datalink fidelity "which shares data based on aircraft identification across groups and aircraft types".

You can update your Open Beta right now.
