I like a lot of you love the shark, was my first module, then the 10c, and still these days of DCS completely valid purchases.
if a first time buyer gets the 50 now god only knows what they will think and prob buy no more.
I feel as I have said the shark is dead, but I hope I'm saying that to make me feel all warm n fuzzy when they address a lot of its issues.
my major gripe is we never seem to hear from ed about the poor old girl.
not even worried about revamps, as well she is meant to be a rough diamond in a way, but please let us know a bit more of whats going on eh?

I would like to replay the ka-50 campaign but waiting for the updated cockpit. It would be really fun to fly with the updated map and tree collusion. Please ED give it some love.

Thank you for good news regarding the KA-50 update! It was what got me into DCS and still my favorite module.

KA50 is dead???


LOL


No it isn't. If you can't fly it without illuminated AP Channel buttons then I really don't know what to say.


They should be fixed sure... but DEAD???


LOL

haha, yea right, I didn't say anything about the lights. maybe read first, but anyway there are a lot more problems than just that that some, maybe not all have but are recurring amongst them, surely by reading my post you could see I love the shark and want it fixed, or you just trolling

I flew the Ka-50 in 2.5.2 last night - went fine except for the right engine fuel cut-off valve - was completely unable to move the lever - the cursor wasn't even changing when I hovered over the handle, or anywhere near it.
Restarted the mission and it worked as it should.

Apart from that, had no issues with the mechanics of the module (just the known gamma/graphics and the anti-collision light turning the cockpit into a disco, which it does with every module).

Concur with this - I fly all combat missions in 1.5.8 due to poor VR in 2.5.2

Definitely I do the same. I'm excited to fly whole campaign and other missions with new cockpit.

Well, I suggest to play ka-50 in 1.5.8 just for new players. For people Who already knows the ka-50 I suggest 2.5. I play in 2.5 and VR. Yes, a new / improved cockpit would be the best, but playing missions in the new caucasus using trees cover is a much more Amazing game than 1.5.8. If you already knows the heli and can manage the light buttons malfunction, my suggestion is to play 2.5 even in VR. I play almost only 2.5 open beta and manage my performance lowering PD.

That probably won't happen in the next 15-20 years. The Ka-52 is one of the newest and most capable airframes in the russian air force, and with the russian administration having become more secretive in the past few years, the chance that any private firm will gain access to a Ka-52 in the next decade or so is practically zero.
