Bohemia Interactive has released three pieces of DLC.

Hinds is the first piece of DLC, for $8.99 on the Steam PC service. It introduces a variety of helicopter gunplay and gameplay. Players assume the role of pilot of the famous Hind helicopter and its several notable variants (Mil Mi-24P, Mil Mi-24V, andMil Mi-24 SueprHind MK.III). These new vehicles have interactive cockpits, retractable landing gear systems, and multiple weapon loadouts. Hinds comes with new singleplayer challenges on the battlefield, five new Time Trials, and a multiplayer death match pitting players one-on-one as either or both pilots and gunners.

The second piece of DLC, named Noisecontrollers is free and contains DJ mixes from a collaboration between Noisecontrollers (Bas Oskam and Arjan Terpstra) and Bohemia Interactive, new light helicopter liveries, and 14 new tough Time Trials. New paint schemes for the Light helicopter are included in this DLC and Bas and Arjan appear as virtual characters within the game.

The third piece of DLC, named Rearmed, is also free. It merges Arma 2 and Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead content into Take on Helicopters, allowing you to fly over familiar landscapes from within those games such as Chernarus, Takistan, and Utes, as well as handling incoming anti-air fire and fighting alongside armed operations. Tanks, cars, motorcycles, fixed-wing planes, helicopters, boats and other vehicles are included as well as rifles, machine guns, shotguns, sidearms, launchers, artillery, and explosives.
