Arma 3 DLC makes it easier to get to da choppa

As the outdated meme in the headline suggests, developer Bohemia Interactive has just released a DLC pack for its cult-hit military simulator Arma 3 focused entirely on helicopters.

The $16 DLC adds two new helicopters to the game, the CH-67 Huron and the Mi-290 Taru. Before you start imagining crazy aerial dogfights, know that these two are utility helicopters, most often used to transport troops and supplies. Sorry, Killer, but you're going to be using them like aerial cranes. Alongside these workhorses, Bohemia has also introduced sling-loading to the game, allowing pilots to carry heavy gear beneath their choppers - assuming they have the dexterity to pass the DLC's tests of skill.

Alongside this DLC, all Arma 3 players will receive a game update that includes a new helicopter flight model and new VR training missions to help players learn to fly. A full rundown of both the DLC and the free update can be found on Steam.
