Default Are the new updates planned to take into account night warfare and laser coding setti

As stated in the title. The K50 is the strongest armed helicopter we have. However, it lacks night combat capability and provides guidance for friendly laser guided weapons by setting laser codes. Are you considering adding them to the new avionics update? This will make the K50 stronger and more versatile.

Yes, I really want to see FLIR added as well. It is quite annoying having an attack helicopter that cannot see at night (FLIR). I would also like to see a third pylon added so that Igla can be carried along with vhikers. The Ka-52 has it, so I don't see why the Ka-50, with the same weapons stub / wing, wouldn't have it.

I hope for the night combat capability!

What’re the sensors by the main gear on either side? They look like FLIR components to me but I’ve only seen them combined with the nose pod on the Ka-52...

They are directional IR jammers

If this paid update is an upgrade of our Ka-50 from its prototype model into a Ka-50N variant or better, then I'm guaranteed to buy it. Night attack black shark or Ka-50sh with the full glass cockpit would be absolutely amazing.

Default Night Warfare Works Just Fine, Currently (If you know what you are doing!)

(My machine is a 2011 Alienware Aurora R3 with a i7-2600 cpu and a single Asus GTX 970, 16 GB ram, running on a Samsung 850 Pro SSD... )

I do quite well at night with the Ka-50 using its last update.

Problem is : most servers are only doing day time missions, so absolutely no stealth with that not very well modeled AWACS , GCI or Game Master radars. At tree level I should not be able to be seen, especially in the valleys!! At least at night I have a slim advantage killing targets and sometimes enemy aircraft. (Watch some of Cooper's YouTube videos as to capabilities of the Vikhr missile with killing jets.)

I learned this guy's techniques, on my own, quite awhile ago, before he created this video. He instructs nicely and a nicely made video.

Laser coding is a thing in the Ka-50 as far as I know. The problem, as I understood it, is that the laser code is outside of the valid range for the western laser spotters and thus the only other vehicle that should be able to see the spot in DCS would be the Su-25, which - being FC3 and all - doesn't have that modelled.

Would be nice to get a fully modeled Su25T module for DCS. Would be the adversary for the A-10C.

And NOT >>> FC3 !!

I'd buy one immediately even in its early release state with "hands-on" clickable buttons and switches!!
