News! - Aircraft Update : UH-1 V1.5 "Huey" by Nimbus Simulations


Nimbus UH-1 - News Header.jpg


Nimbus Simulations have done a massive update to their excellent UH-1 "Huey" helicopter. The changelog (below) is simply huge and the announcement that a civil version of the helicopter was “probably” being released in a month...


The UH-1 is a utility military helicopter powered by a single Lycoming T53-L-11 turboshaft engine, 1,100 shp (820 kW), with two-blade main and tail rotors. It was the first member of the highly prolific Huey family, it was developed by Bell Helicopter to meet a United States Army's 1952 requirement for a medical evacuation and utility helicopter, and first flew in 1956.


UH-1H is the most-produced Huey version, and is the representative of all the various types. This aircraft was the improved UH-1D with the uprated Lycoming T53-L-13 engine of 1,400 shp (1,000 kW) and overall 5435 UH1H's were built.


What is new in v1.5


That is a lot of changes. I loved the Nimbus Huey; Helicopter Review : Bell UH-1 Iroquois "Huey" by Nimbus Simulations a lot, but there was a few areas that still needed refining and attention, a sort of finishing off the initial development, so this extensive update will be interesting.
