Well, i don't think we should care about classification. We should only think about what we really want. If they give us the option, they think it's feasible. Even if we should not take a proposal for granted.

For me, it's the Tiger : it's the next logical step from the Gazelle, one helo we never seen in a game, plenty of my non-aviation friends would buy the module, like they did for the Gazelle, because they'd get hyped, and thus i could run my own virtual EAALAT

I don't really know what my second choice would be, but if it has shared cockpit & efficient weapon (which the Gazelle doesn't have ) count me on. And if it's european and modern (EC635 for instance) it's a big plus.

Tiger for me as well! Hoping it's not too classified.

As I posted in the Littlebird thread, I can't see the value in producing playable assets below the UH-1 and Gazelle level. Combined Arms isn't up to the level of Battlefield 2, let alone ARMA, so I'm just not sold on how valuable a light and more vulnerable scout class chopper would be either to gameplay, or those forking out hard earned money for modules. Troop carriers either.

With the Red side having the Ka-50 and Mi-24 coming along, the Blue side really needs some beef in the attack helicopter stable. AH-1W is plenty capable, fairly fast, nimble and sturdy, and as others have said, less prone to confidential-itis.

not every scout. is a scout.
i would not concider the bo105 or the 342m as scouts in first place. they are light weighted little anti tank helicopters, more like a wasp hunting for bees. both bo105 and sa342 lack most of the real. communication stuff and many goddies the kiowas for. example have, what later the ec655 tiger uhu received for the german forces.

what is interesting about this topic here? you see most people also are. tending to vote more national thinking. french guys vote for the tiger and the us guys for the W

Well I wouldn't be upset with the Tiger, but the W just makes so much more sense to in terms of all the naval assets in the pipe.

Alright, make a super puma or C160 then


Nah i'm kidding. Do whatever you want guys, I think that everyone will be happy to fly in your chopper, should it be scout, transport or gunship

Honestly, I would take either one or both. The Cobra has been a long time waiting for me since the days of Gunship!, and Jane's Longbow. If you ended up making the Tiger I would be equally ecstatic. Both would make a fine opponent to the KA-50 and Mi-24P
