Question Which defensive systems will be modelled?

Hi all,

the Ka50 might be a powerful weapons platform but one thing that annoys the heck out of me is the lack of a RWR and a MWS. It is difficult to see enemies, especially when they can look "through" the trees and I can't. So at least I want to know when someone is scanning me and especially when someone is firing. The A10 has all of that and it makes for so much better situational awareness and less unwelcomed surprises. Combine that with a targeting pod that uses IR and it is actually possible to see stuff.

So my question to Polychop is:

1. Will the Bo105 have a LWS?
2. Will it have a RWR?
3. Will it have a MWS?
4. Will it have IR optics?

Thank you, Asset

The Korean Version schould have the most advanced systems. It has all of the above.
The German Version has no MWS and simpler optics.

What were the optics used by the PAH anyway? I searched for it a while ago but couldn't even find the name of it.

Hi,

the korean BO-105 have:

- IRCM (Infrared Countermeasures System)
- RWR (Radar warner which shows bars, indicating the direction from which the Helicopter is tracked)
- Flare/Chaff Dispenser (programable)

-German BO only have RWR (same as in the Korean)

The Swedish version, Hkp9, had nothing but brave pilots :-)

There are RWR antennas on many of the pictures, showing the Hkp9. Not sure if it will be in the Polychop module

No. There was no RWR on the swedish Hkp9.

There was mounting pads, above the windshield an most aft of the tail boom delivered when the bo105 was bought but no RWR-system was ever installed.

All Hkp 9 got a modification during early 2000's for NVG-capability and then there was formation lights mounted on the forward RWR-mounting pads. Perhaps these you have seen?

I have to make one possible exception for the Viktor 90(later Kalle 90) aiframe, used for tests by FMV.
It was equipped with the Helitow2 FLIR day/night system. It is not completely impossible that that airframe had RWR, but as I recall it, it had not.

If a dev could comment on it: Will the german version be night time capable in regards to employing the hot 3 missile, i.e. FLIR capability for the sighting system comparable to the Gazelle's Viviane system?
