Sorry about the late release date!

I’ll be making a video about how to fly her pretty soon, its kind of a tricky thing if you’re not used to it!

If on PC/Mac, mouse controls are highly recommended.

Important thing to note: The cockpit view is angled 15 degrees down, to make ground aiming easier. The rockets and gun are also angled accordingly.


AG1: Arm countermeasures

— You have near-unlimited countermeasures, so don’t worry about being generous. Although you shouldn’t have to, considering each deployment releases 6 flares at varying speeds, and 2 chaff bursts.

AG2: Deploy Arrestor Hook

— Deploys to a severe angle, and its a bit longer to make catching the cable a breeze. Do not attempt in an actual breeze.

AG3: Night Vision

— It isn’t necessarily true night vision, but it makes seeing the outline of the terrain easier

AG4: Enable Yaw movement from Roll input

— I use this pretty much whenever I fly, it makes turning a single-input movement. Feels very fluid.

AG5: Trim-based pitch

— Use this for long-distance flight. Use it in flight and its kind of obvious.

AG6: Take your neck brace off

— Moves the cockpit camera view with the Roll/Pitch inputs. Keep in mind that your aiming reticle isn’t true in this mode, only use it in non-combat situations

AG7: uh I forgot go find out for me

AG8: Hold Orientation for Strafing

— This one is probably my favorite, once you get roughly lined up for a gun-strafing run, disable AG8 to hold the aircraft orientation as you fly over. This lets you near-perfectly keep the gun trained on your target, without moving the aircraft l around too much.

VTOL: Rotor Pitch

— Yeah. Approx. 0.5 up is usually good.
