Behind the cyclic there is the adjustment knobs for the TV and HMD.

It is a cheat based limitation of the DCS capability render extra camera, but still a cheating (using game limitation against it self).

Wonder how hard it would be to pull code from the Mercury pod in the SU25T. Somehow replace over the Shkval.

Ka-50 is so bad, it can barely get a lock in the EVENING. It really needs either LLTV (Starlight) or FLIR, and MUCH better EO / Contrast detection.


When you've got an Apache coming at you at 6km, and you can't get a lock on it, YOU'RE IN TROUBLE! He's probably already launched a Hellfire at you!



Right now, I only fly at Noon. That is about the only time I can get decent lock at range. I'm sure that this is probably realistic, and the problem is the day scope EO on the Shkval just SUCKS! It needs a better EO system, like GOES-451 on the Ka-52, which also includes FLIR. Would love to fly this chopper at night, where all modern choppers have a stealth advantage.

Exactly, it's a cheat, and not real.

I've done quite a few night missions in the Shark...

I'm more careful.

I'm not useless.

WTF?

Has ANYONE else tried holding down the target lock button until vikhr impact? You don't need a lock. Yes, you need to cool the laser after a long shot done in this way... but it works. Also... If you put your mind to it... this also offers a significant advantage to those who get good at it ...

If you are about 6km and not too high you can do all by yourself. Shot illumination rockets in a nose up pitch will not let you lose the target lock unless you are too high.
