I'd also not heard of the Pukara aircraft until now. Just looked it up and it seems to have similar performance to an old Ju 88 A-4 bomber, but with only half the bomb load and only a quarter of the range. It probably would not fare very well even against the WW2 aircraft in DCS.

The design though reminds me a bit of the Focke-Wulf FW 187 from the late 1930s.

Apparently a Pukara was shot down by small arms fire during the Falklands War.

The Pucara was certainly deployed by Argentina in the Falklands but my assumption would have been — because it’s flown by a crew and otherwise off the beaten track for DCS platforms — that it is being created as a non-flyable AI aircraft for that theatre. Do we know if this is definitely not the case?

Edit: Just saw that they have announced the Pucara so, well, never mind!
