Gamers van het eerste uur herinneren zich vast nog wel de game Comanche. Deze helikopter sim uit 1992 liet spelers ervaren hoe het zou zijn om militaire missies uit te voeren. Je bestuurde een RAH-66 Comanche, waar de naam van de game ook vandaan kwam en voerde vervolgens de missies uit.

Er zijn een aantal delen verschenen binnen de franchise, maar echt goede delen heeft de serie na Comanche 3 niet meer gezien, dus we zijn benieuwd wat THQ Nordic ermee gaat doen. De eerste teaser trailer tref je in ieder geval alvast hieronder.

After the Iran-US RQ170 incident, in which a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) was hacked and captured through cyberwarfare, the US army secretly revived the development of the RAH-66 helicopter program for special operations. The goal was to develop a highly maneuverable, highly advanced stealth war machine for impervious and mountainous terrain, that can deploy unhackable low-range drones to operate in high-risk environments. The program was a full success, and the Comanche special units seemed unstoppable in their missions.

But then the blueprints leaked through a whistleblower website, and so every group and power, who could afford it, built and modified the Comanche for their own purposes. A new era of helicopter warfare had begun.
