Bohemia Interactive has announced the first DLC for Take On Helicopters, Hinds, will be released on March 15, and it promises to contain a more “action-packed” experience.

Take On Helicopters: Hinds includes the Mil Mi-24 V, Mi-24 P and Mi-35 Super Hind helicopter gunships with over 25 different liveries, a new set of single-player challenges, five time trials and a new competitive multiplayer scenario.

“With Take On Helicopters, our goal was to strike a balance between pure gaming – story-driven scenarios, challenges, time trials – and an authentic experience of flying a helicopter,” said creative director Jay Crowe. “Of course, that’s a tough job, but alongside the accessible controls, difficulty settings and optional assists, we’re glad to find a big range of people having fun flying helicopters in Take On.

“After launching the game, we felt there was room to complement Take On Helicopters with a more ‘action-packed’ experience. Our Hinds DLC is perfect for those who are seeking the adrenaline rush of flying a classic military gunship and getting into combat.”
