I also have no real interest in the -1S. Better than the G I guess, but I still won't be buying it. The Whiskey would be an instant buy, I want a hellfire shooter and the Marine whiskey cobras have seen a lot of action in Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, etc. Long serving and excellent performing bird.

Where does it says block 50, and what armaments can that carry? Google isn't being my friend in this case.

Edit: Are you looking at the F16 text?

8 TOW missiles is enough imho. It will also pair really well with the Mi-24P. It's a day one buy for me, as is the Hind. That said, I would have preferred the J model given we have an Iran map and that's what they fly.

The F-16 I'll probably skip. Already have the F-18 and the 16 is pretty similar in capabilities, no point trying to master both planes. But I'm certain plenty of others will buy it. Should be a good money maker.

Fair enough, but a lot of us want a relatively modern US attack heli along the lines of the -1W or AH-64A (...both ~30yrs old now, like the Hornet), something more analogous to the blackshark. While the -1S can fire TOW, it's hardly a modern attack chopper in comparison.

The AH-64 is pretty high on my wishlist tbh. For me, the AH-1 is the Mk.I attack chopper, and so I prefer early models of it with TOW missiles. The Mi-24 is the same way. I'd also like a modern pair though, ideally an AH-64E and Ka-52. Probably not going to happen, but one can dream.

I would love to see some more Airbus (Aerospatiale era) helos. The Panther, Puma, and even the more modern Tiger.

I know, this is DCS and it's community, but the topic is the Cobra, and not "Oh, I wish we could get a XYZ helo...".
