@todd022 It is not only about the mastbumping, it is more about the fact that the blades flap and hunt freely, which makes the fullyarticulated rotorsystem more "twitchy" aswell then a underslung system. That also results in the fact that it is more responsive and agile aswell.

If you could describe the current FM how it is right now with other existing helicopter modules in DCS, what would be the closest to us getting an idea of what she feels like?

I sure hope that's the case!! I would be a happy guy if we got this before the end of the year!

Not holding my breath on that at all, but dang dude it'd be an exciting year for DCS if that happened.

The more I read about the OH-58 and see the development of this, I think I'm joining the gang of people who will be purchasing/preordering on day 1.

Yeah, I am eagerly looking forward to this. I know the KA-50 Blackshark is getting remodeled but the OH-58D is a buy for me.

Will the Kiowa have the ability to buddy lase for AI aircraft? Would be nice to put a team of Apaches behind a hill then lase targets for them from a different position.
