Thanks a lot for the great changelog, but I think we need more keycommands for Missile Box and Flare Dispenser.

"- added assign-able keys for pilot Intercom"
Is this the enabling of cockpit clicking for the radio switch that governs which radio your PTT is set to? This functionality would be really useful for a comms mod I have.
