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.

Hopefully the new systems won't be too much.  At least the updated graphics are free.

I think the entire upgrade should be free to previous owners of the KA50.
This is a bit of a money grab the way I take it.
But being the doppy sod I am I will buy it anyway.

Cheers

It's a mixed bag to me.  I started flying the Ka-50 in 2008 (BS1) got the update (BS-2) in 2011, so that is ~ 11 years of fly for ~ $100.  The graphic fixes are free but the new systems are $.  If it si$20 or less I won't see it as a money grab.  IF it is $30 or more, then I would agree.


Now charging full price for the FW 190 A-8 to owners of the FW 190 D-9 IS more of a money grab imho.

But like you, I will buy it.

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.  :)
