I saw this last night, a very weird release, 2 months before schedule and without anything else then a 3 line announcement on the forum...
Anyhow I am happy and pleasantly surprised, I was planning to purchase the Russian version this weekend because of some tester saying the English version would be released in April and then this, yay.

I'll download it when I get home.
I bet I'm going to flip the chopper on takeoff, If I even get the rotors spinning that is...

Download only?

Poor decadent capitalists, I've got box couple of weeks ago. Very good sim, too bad that in our times there are no concurents for DCS, good concurency could make Eagle Dynamics produce even better products and release patch for LockOn that I'm waiting for like years.

The only problem is my veteran Top Gun Fox 2 Pro with problems with accident left thrusting, don't know how to solve it.

If violence isn't the answer, then you obviously need more violence.

Yea the bad guys are Georgia and their Western buddies.

It's a cool sim, my biggest complaint is that the trees do not have collision detection so you can literally fly through forests and the trees only block your view but the AI can see you just fine through them. Which makes the trees pointless other than for screen shots.

I also wouldn't hold your breath on any further modules, you will be waiting at least a year for the next ones, probably longer.

The KA-50 is pretty low tech, compared with say an AH-64D, there is no FLIR which makes night ops extremely limited and you have to have line of sight on the targets for the duration of the AT missiles flight. Unlike a Longbow which can fire missiles from behind hills day or night. And the work load to fight the Ka-50 is much higher as there is only man in it doing the flying and the fighting.

It's not cool to be flying a low tech machine on a high tech battle field.

Hence the reason I would like to play black shark, rather than just go and join the russian air force.

In any case, low tech or not, I bet it does its job fine and in a tank I would not like to be.
