You know they can’t say anything. All we can do is wait and see if the tease about the Hellfire missile leads to anything (in “a few weeks”, though I’ve heard that before.)

Yeah, but I don't follow how that relates to getting the Kiowa or not.

Sorry it wasnt clear. I was super excited to try out the hover behind the treeline and have the mast over the top thing that kiowas do and designate targets for others. Kinda pointless if im gonna get gunned by a t55 or shilka that magically sees through cover.

Yeah, and we don't have anything that can fire Hellfires yet, so that takes some of the fun out of it too. Don't get me wrong, I'm still pretty excited about this project, but its niche is somewhat limited by the capabilities of DCS, both in terms of tech and modules.

Other Kiowas can carry helfires.

Since the trees now have collision, they were supposed to cover from radars.

Well the laser target designator on a Kiowa or any other equipped helicopter provides a laser target for any capable munition type, not only hellfires. You could help out any platform capable of dropping GBU's or laser guided mavericks for example.

I think it would be awesome to lase targets for Hornet's, Harriers, Warthogs, and tomcats with the Kiowa. And I don't know if trees block radar but they are collideable and block weapons.
