Second module developed by BelSimTek and released September 4, 2013. DCS: Mi-8MTV2 Magnificent Eight is a simulation of the Mi-8MTV2, a combat transport and fire support helicopter and an upgraded variant of one of the most widely produced helicopters in the world, the Russian Mi-8. The simulation features modeling of all primary aircraft systems, avionics, and proper functionality of nearly all cockpit switches and controls. Flight and other dynamics are modeled using real-time physics calculations and tuned using actual Mi-8MTV2 documentation and pilots involved in development and testing. The result is a helicopter model that correctly presents complex dynamic effects particular to helicopter flight, such as: autorotation, vortex ring state (VRS), translational lift, and many others. The Mi-8 in game is capable of carrying troops and slingloads. It is one of the most difficult helicopter to fly in DCS due to the high fidelity of the flight model.
