It's not just looks. It's a LOT of bugs, probably introduced by switching to the new engine. They need to do a complete bug sweep on it.

Agreed, the move the the new engine seems to have co-incidence with a number of issues.

Ordinarily i think this is to be expected, and that the all of the, ED/DCS branded aircraft, and all of the ED/DCS designed training and quick start missions be reviewed and confirmed working and up to standard.

Unfortunately none of this happened.
Just about every aircraft has bugs since the new engine, some more severe than others.

The same goes for the training missions I've been over recently, also full of issues.
Many of the issues are so bad the break the training mission rendering it unable to be completed without modifying the mission files.

Whilst most of us have a good feel of how to work, or work around these issues, the bugs and and broken training missions will put off a lot of new players.

Hard to do when you spend 90% of your resources on the !@!#$! F18. I would sure like to spend more time in the shark but not worth the effort until it is fixed.

Hopefully, this version will actually be able to lock up air targets with the schval. This version is essentially useless. Going against other heli's, you can only lock them about 1 out 10 to 15 tries, if that. A-10s, fighters jets, etc are complete un-lockable. If you are in a mission that has attack planes or fighter jets in it, you are DEAD. There is no defense. Being essentially an experimental aircraft ( I think only 12 were ever made ), I don't see why we can't get some kind of infrared missile system on it. If we are going into raging modern battlefields with it, WE NEED IT! R-60 or R-73 on the wingtips! There is either no time to try and lock up a target with the shkval while flying, or even if you do have the time, the target will not lock. We need quick fire and forget, then run for cover. This is exactly why they gave the A-10 AIM-9's. We heli-pilots need this capability as well, if we are to enter a modern battlefield, even more so than an attack jet. Make that AA selection on the selector switch ACTIVE!


I really can't see this helicopter surviving on any battlefield. Not in this age.


Please ED. Even if you can't get data on a Shark that has the ability to carry these missiles, give us a version that does. Otherwise, the only thing this copter is good for is sight seeing. The minute any kind of enemy plane appears, and your in the open, Your Dead. And of course, on your maps, there pretty much is nothing BUT the Open.

Per a post from Chihz in the Russian forums, this has been moved to 2019. Just a heads up to avoid anyone's further disappointment
