Do we have a chance to see Kiowa arrive this year?

The article mentioned an AI pilot and no multicrew. I know it may be difficult but with the right bindings will we be able to fly and use the weapons system at the same time? In the gazelle I would be flying and manipulating the camera with a hat switch.

I did wonder how that fitted with the statement of it being complete on release.

The way the article read it sounded like they are trying to leave the framework to backport multicrew into it but they're not confident enough of being able to do it to call it a feature. So its not promised so it can be complete without it. I'm just curious if theres an ai gunner who will shoot at targets and mark targets as an afac or if you have to let the ai fly to do that or if you're talented enough be capable of flying marking and shooting all at the same time?

Cool and all but I would highly suggest releasing this new tech into the gazelle to your already bought and paid for customers. That should be 5 meter tgt, not a new module.

Wow! Didn't expect the Koiwa to be in this very advanced State of Development. Great News for all us Heli-Pilots. Finally we get a new Toy, and even a pretty modern One.

Before we start, a warning: there are NO GUARANTEES that the Kiowa will see the light of day as Polychop and Eagle Dynamics are still negotiating contracts.



What’s the deal with this?
