Default Kiowa release date?

I’ve been a way for some time and I’m not up to speed on the Kiowa so has a first release date been said yet?

Not as far as I know. It may be this year, but that's all we know. Which is fine, as excited as I am, I'd say let them take their time .

Though, from fairly regular videos testers post on youtube, and Polychop share, it seems like it's coming along nicely thus far.

Hi BlacleyCole,

As the Kiowa Warrior is still in ongoing development and we do not plan on an early access release but rather a feature complete release, all we can say for now is that we aim for release in 2020.

Personally, I find it a very good decision from you.

With the flak that ED is receiving for the F-16, I can't blame Polychop one bit for going for a full release. Patience is a virtue. And a complete module is not a bad thing at all. Can't wait! I'm very excited for this to come to life.

That, and the fecal matter thrown at them over the gazelle (whether it was justified or not is subjective, I've enjoyed the bird) , as well as people's reception of the Jeff being as complete as it is (I wouldn't know, at this rate it'll be out of EA by the time stable players get to see what they've paid for)

In any case, I don't care if it's released feature complete or as a work in progress. I'm gonna enjoy this one either way. It's just a question of sooner or later?

I’d prefer a complete version and not to ease unpaid tester or rather than a paying customer who ends up being a tester

Good news indeed. As much as I like the early access releases (especially for learning things in steps and help improving things), a rather complete release is never a wrong thing to go for. And it will still have its "early access" (read: the usual issues that come with a module release) then with polishing to be done, but at least we won't have to wait for the vital features. I guess I should put some money aside for that bird to be ready when it drops
