Hindsight Is 10.99: Take On Helicopters: Hinds Launches

By Craig Pearson on March 15th, 2012 at 7:07 pm.

Other gags included 'In hindsight this Hind sight was inevitable', and 'What a nice be-Hind'
Bohemia Interactive’s chopper-centric sim was always going to drop in some angry war tech. That’s what they know, and that’s what we love about them. So we’re here to celebrate the addition of the Hind to Take On Helicopters with a fairly warry trailer. I don’t know about you, but to me the Hind in this DLC launch trailer looks pissed off. Probably because it’s having to do its rarr-war-rarr thing in what’s considered a civilian flight sim. He was born for war, forged in steel, headbutted into aero-dynamic shape, his blades sharpened on the screams of the ghosts of conflict. He’s here to bring more sky death to the mostly sedate world of Take On Helicopters.

What a roter.

It should start popping up on Bohemia’s shop, Steam, Desura, Gamersgate, Aerosoft, Wilco Publishing and Impulse Driven shortly.

    Look, look, Operation Arrowhead’s HIND has been updated!

  2. MerceAR says:

    WTF?
    Hind taking out t80′s?

  3. Torgen says:

    Wait, they changed the setting from Seattle??

    Darn.

  4. Jim9137 says:

    I keep thinking about Hind and how awesome it was to watch.

  5. Caleb367 says:

    Worth noticing anyway: GOG.com has the original DID’s Hind for sale at 5.99$ now. Just wanted to say that, this sounds like Hind’s heir, and well, Hind’s been my first helicopter sim and a very fond memory.

    • Alehkhs says:

      My very first thought. I grew up playing Hind, and I really hope this turns into a proper successor.

      Also, even though I’ve got the original CD running pretty well on my current desktop, I think I’m going to go grab it from GOG as well…

    A Hind D? Colonel, what’s a Russian gunship doing here?

    Anyone else remember LHX? My first flight sim, as a wee lad on Win 3.1….

    • Caleb367 says:

      Hell yeah I remember that. I remember it being more of a corridor shooter than a flight sim, but it was fun. V-22 Osprey kicked major ass.

      • VelvetFistIronGlove says:

        Corridor shooter? You could fly anywhere you wanted in the map at any time. Not that there was much point, besides picking out a route clear of SA-7s.

    • NYMinuteMan says:

      Yes, it was so awesome. I remember turning camels into black craters with the cannon. Also, totally futuristic to feature the Osprey back in the day.

    I’m beHind this all the way. If I may speak for the collective RPSers, we know good games are cyclic, and FFAR from common, so great to see this minxy Lynx skid onto our plates.

  9. nothisispatrick says:

    Whelp, I guess this game can’t possibly get any cooler seeing as how it now features the official Coolest Helicopter Ever (TM)

  10. Brothabear says:

    shit thatsa beautiful hind.. Lockon doesnt even come close. Tho the day when they can combine both a good ground FPS with a (at least slightly) serious flightsim mechanic. you got a winning game.

  11. forsh says:

    I wonder if Price Harry is going to be playing this

  12. JToTheDog says:

    Bohemia interactive:
    One Game Engine to rule them all, One Game Engine to find them,
    One Game Engine to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
    (and not fix any of the major faults of the previous version)

  13. Durkonkell says:

    Taaake ooon helicopters!
    Taaake helicopters ooon!

  14. Snuffy the Evil says:

    If buying this DLC and subsequently terrorizing Seattle doesn’t put my name on an FBI watchlist then no sale.

    The Hind means business. It’s the only helicopter that has a genuine Warface.
