That's nice - I like it.
Let me guess - starting from angular velocity - you're an engineer ?

I wondered how approximate the approximation was, so did it the math-phobe, social science major's way :-/

Pi * D * RPM * 60 * .001 to get the speed at that diameter in km/h, which simplifies to

D * RPM * 0.1885 = speed in km/h
or
D * RPM * 0.1018 for knots

which makes your angular approximation pretty close ! (.1 is pretty close to .1018 )
Thanks, you can get even better if you can spare the mental gymnastics for a last adjustment, tke the final result and subtract 10% or a tenth... to more accurately adjust from the [m] per [sec] to [kts] term.

Why not just go full force and add railguns and full on stealth RCS reduction while your at it.
Uh... actually the KA-50 is ALREADY getting an RWR in the rework. The KA-50 they fielded IRL (although still not a production model) HAD an RWR. It also had the IGLAS (which we are also getting). It also had an IR warning system (which we are also getting). And of course the laser warning system already in the helicopter in DCS.

Seems maybe you haven't read all the thread...
