A little bit of cash so I can shove a heater up a fighter's tailpipe who's trying to roast me?  I'll do that.  :)

Holy. Shit.

Igla??  Yes please.  There will be a lot of surprised fighters out there once this happens.  Awesome.

Missile warning system?  HELL YES. 

IR Jammer?  Not sure how effective those are in DCS as the SU-25T has it and heaters don't seem to have any problems finding that bird.  But I'll take it. 

All the KA-50 needs at that point is an IR TV for night attack and a RWR and it would be nearly unstoppable.

That was a reference to an old movie Iron Eagle.  A cheesy Quasi-military movie.  About an order of magnitude cheesier than Topgun.

Can it carry the Hades bomb?

Didn't see it on the list.  Also not sure nukes make any sense in a sim. Fun to drop once, but that is about it imho.

Big 10 needs to start recording his runs from his cockpit so we can see what a perfect run looks like.  Would be helpful in replicating it for the rest of us.

Well I already have the D9.  There's little point spending $40 on almost the exact same aircraft.  Plus we never fly the WWII stuff anyway.  I'll get it eventually when it goes on sale and/or can use bonus points for it. 

Will definitely get the 16 tho.

Go to F10 map
Hit Left Alt Y to change default coordinate format to UTM coordinates
Get the UTM coordinates of the target
Plug it into this website

That will give you coordinates in Lat Long in Deg Min Sec where the seconds has the xx.xx format.

With the testing I have done I am able to hit a structure not much bigger than a tank.  You need to have 3 things.

1.  You need to be able to see the target in the F10 map so you can be sure you are picking the right impact point.  Example, if you try and look at a Road Outpost structure it doesnt show on the map (you just see the target icon) and the icon isn't actually on the structure so you can't use it as an aim point.

2.  You need to have two digits after the seconds decimal in order to get the accuracy you need.

3.  You need to be around 20k'+ in alt.

When you do start flying the 19 MattE let me know and I can fly with you.  I already have a startup video made.  And I'm about done studying the 14 (as far as the pilot seat).  I know how to use the systems, now it is just as matter of actually using it (and landing it) to best effect.

Silver.  Have you tested?  I tried in my training server and I set up 4 road check point structures (not huge, but not tiny targets) and got the exact Lat Long for those and tried dropping 4 on a single target (1 per pass).  The first one was off by a few hundred feet so I figured I had released early (even though it had said I was in range).  For the next drops I got higher and waited longer.  The 2nd one was maybe 50-100 feet short.  3 and 4 both hit almost exactly the same place and were maybe 20-50 off ... one was close enough that it did 1% damage to the target.  I'm going to try the suggestion made earlier to use UTM coordinates and convert those to lat long and see if that changes anything for accuracy.

The video from Wags goes through the process step by step.  I'm testing it tonight.

I have it.  At one point I had started reading the manual but got sidetracked and haven't looked at it since.

We need to put in the Grim Reapers videos.  They have been making a TON of short videos as of late. 

Here is one for computer offset IP bombing:
