Miltech-5 suspends development of the Bo-105 for DCS “indefinitely”

After a long period of silence, Oliver Michel has some news for the community. And they aren’t as nice as we’d like them to be.

Miltech-5 BO-105 for DCS - stopped indefinitely

Things have not been easy on this project. After breaking up with Polychop, Oliver started his own company, Miltech-5 and continued working on the helicopter. But he has always stated that he needed a coder for the project.

Two years later, there is still no solution and, according to a post on the official Miltech-5 Facebook page, the Bo-105 is now “on ice to an undefined time”.

Dear Simmers and Lovers of the BO-105, As many of you already followed my project since 2012 with a lot of up and...

Miltech-5 had been releasing screenshots of updates to the model but, obviously, a model alone is not a full module.

This is sad news indeed and not what we all expected. More helicopters are needed in DCS and losing such an iconic model as the Bo-105 (which would certainly be amazing for some stunts and demos) is a real shame.

Hopefully Miltech-5 will find a solution very soon.
