Bohemia Interactive hat das Update 1.06 für die Hubschrauber-Simulation Take on Helicopters veröffentlicht. Mit diesem "Downtown-Patch" sollen u.a. Performance und Stabilität des Spiels verbessert werden. Darüber hinaus enthält der Patch ein "Rearmed" betiteltes Download-Paket, das die Inhalte von Take on Helicopters mit Arma II, Arma II: Operation Arrowhead oder Arma 2: Combined Operations verknüpft, sofern diese installiert sind. So könnte man mit den Helikoptern durch die Kriegsgebiete aus ArmA fliegen oder mit einem Panzer durch Seattle tuckern. Allerdings weisen die Entwickler daraufhin, dass es gelegentlich zu Kompatibilitätsproblemen kommen kann.

TKOH Project Lead Joris-Jan van't Land on the new patch: "Recently our core technology used for various games has had fresh fixes and optimizations applied to it. This was mostly done via the Operation Arrowhead beta patch program. Since Take On Helicopters is running on an improved version of this technology, we were able to port across these improvements. Many players already report significant performance boosts when flying over densely populated areas such as Seattle downtown. Another big focus was the multiplayer code, improving its stability, reliability and security. It’s nice to be able to upgrade a whole range of titles at once in this way."
About the Rearmed initiative, Joris-Jan van't Land says: "When we initially developed Take On Helicopters, its focus was on civilian flight. We still believe in this non-combat gameplay, but of course our studio’s origins lie in military gaming. By using some clever ways of merging installed products, without the player having to tweak manual settings, it is now possible to combine the two worlds. Take On Helicopters gets an incredible amount of new content, while many of the improvements are applied to it. I love flying a helicopter over Chernarus, bathed in improved lighting and covered by the beautiful clouds. Takistan is a more detailed part of South Asia and the ideal playground for combined arms desert operations."
