Hind is a computer game released by Digital Integration in 1997 for DOS and Windows 95.
The game is a combat flight simulator which features the Soviet Mi-24 Hind attack-helicopter. It came with a detailed 99 page printed manual.
Hind is rated as a PC Gamer editors choice game thanks to its high rating.
The game’s graphics utilise Gourad shading.
The game features a quite realistic flight model. Many complex physics effects are modelled, including ground effect, vortex ring, retreating blade stall and autorotation. Options are included to simplify the flight model for beginners.
Some of the missions and campaigns in the game are fictional, but the Afghanistan campaign is based on the 1980s Soviet War in Afghanistan.
Ground battles between individual soldiers can be seen taking place, since AI controlled infantry have been added. Soldiers can also be carried aboard the Hind helicopter and are a vital part of some missions.
If the player does nothing, an (almost) endless, semi-random war will be played out in each mission via a combination of scripted scenarios and very basic AI. The ‘war’ can be passively watched using the features for zooming in on and moving about each active unit. It is possible to pass some missions this way, as the AI units on the players side are sometimes capable of achieving the objectives without help.
