Polychop’s OH-58 Kiowa for DCS postponed to 2021

As Polychop says, “with the end of the year fast approaching”, we kind of started to imagine it would be hard to have a 2020 release.

If you (like me) were waiting for the Kiowa, there are some bad news. On their Facebook page Polychop announced that the module for DCS will not see the light of day this year:

With the end of the year fast approaching and still a lot of work to do, we have come to a point where we have to accept that a 2020 release of the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior module is no longer feasible. We want to release a module that we feel is feature complete, mission ready and a true tribute to the men and women in army aviation. That is not to say no extra’s will be added later on. Even though we’ve been crunching the past months, we simply aren’t there yet.

We can imagine this is a disappointment to all who look forward to the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior module and we hope to make up for this with the polished release the module deserves. We’ll be working hard to get you the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior module as soon as possible.

The company has been posting weekly screenshots of the Kiowa and she is looking sweet but we will have to wait a bit more for Polychop to release her when they think she’s ready.
