I would love any heavy helicopter. I love my Mi-8, and realize I have a real fetish for big choppers. I lean towards either the Sea King or Chinook for the time periods and application, although there's nothing I don't love about the Super Stallion, either!

may I point out this bad boy:

I say yes, but what I really want is a Vietnam era AH-1 Cobra!

PS- Harrier is my most anticipated module and I LOVE how much Razbam is sharing etc. Great work guys!

Why? Why would you want a technologically gimped AH-1G when you could have the far more flexible and enjoyable AH-1W?

For the same reason I prefer WWII, Korea, and Vietnam aircraft simulations above all modern aircraft. I'm absolutely certain there are a lot of people flying DCS who prefer antique technology!

In the interest of full disclosure, I don't know exactly what equipment was added to the Cobra for AH-1W spec. Perhaps I would like it fine, but for me to be really happy it must have no auto hover, no SAS, and no guided weapons! If the AH-1W fits that description then I redact my statement.

I'm with TripRod. Plus the g matches our current helicopter set (Huey, MI- for Vietnam type stuff. The Whiskey is a twin and a tech marvel like the Apache, too much whiz-bang stuff for me.

The G offers no new experience from the current Huey. It is just a slimmer version. The W which BST is working on offers a comparable experience to the KA-50 and provides a useful gunship platform on a greater variety of maps. If you absolutely hate Hellfires and APKWS, you can still run a mission where the loadout of the Whiskey is restricted to the same that a Vietnam era helicopter would have. The reverse cannot be said.

Now that somebody mentioned the Seaknight, it would fit well with all the naval planes Razbam are creating. Plus it could transformed into the swedish/japanese versions of it(or atleast have swedish splinter camo, love me some HKP4)

The G offers a Cobra. I personally think the Apache is a superior weapons system and I would wish for one of those would show up.

That said, if a Cobra was to come along I'd buy it, no matter what version. I do think that if devs are going to keep cranking out old helicopters then give us an attack jobby that is concurrent with the Huey H. I think you are wrong on the capabilities, the G model gunship was more than just a skinny Huey, by quite a bit: it's faster and a hell of a lot more maneuverable, etc......if it was the same thing but slimmer the Army wouldn't have invested in it in the first place because that owuld be a supreme waste of money (not that the Guv is good with our tax dollars, but....) A Whiskey or Z would be neat, the G matches more with what is already here and coming next.

As far as what BST is working on, I have seen they have been helping with Hornet, there's the MI-24 coming, and nothing has been said in over two years for a Cobra. If I'm wrong I would LOVE to see it, because no matter what I would prefer to see the fact is that the American plane set SHOULD HAVE a proper attack helicopter to counter the KA-50 and the DCS Havoc, as well as compliment our aged transport Huey.
