Virtual Aviation Nation interview with Polychop about the Kiowa for DCS

Virtual Aviation Nation has talked to Sven Borchert, the CEO of Polychop about the upcoming OH-58 Kiowa for DCS.

In this interview with Virtual Aviation Nation, Sven talks about the Kiowa, the difficulties of developing a helicopter for DCS (or any other sim, for that matter), the roles we can play in DCS, the depth of the systems and how the real Kiowa community helped with the project.

The OH-58 Kiowa should bring some new and cool stuff to the plate that will allow the virtual pilots to use it on different roles and add another layer to the depth of the virtual battle field as we will be able to coordinate and assist other pilots (with buddy-lasing), for example.
