Default BS3: Damage model, rain+wipers, wake turbulences

We have seen some nice improvements on the recent modules and I was wondering if this would make it to BS3.

Improved damage model: not that the current one is bad but will there be more subtle consequences in the systems failures and physical damage taken from enemy fire?

Rain drops: Wipers for the Ka50 cockpit and Shkval have always been functional (meaning they move when we are flipping the relevant switch). Any change, if we get the rain drops on both canopy and shkval to have functional wipers?

Wake turbulences: now fixed wingers have wake turbulences, is ED looking at generating the downflow for us choppers (it's like wake turbulences pointing downward after all). I found always a bit disturbing in DCS that hovering right above another chopper doesn't have any consequences for the latter.

Thanks!

Improved damage model : Was it planned? I don't remember


Rain drops: I think they have to work on the wiper before simply applying rain drops like the F18.

In any case, hovering while raining should be very interesting. Fall is coming

Wakes : you don't usually fly under other choppers but it could be nice

not bad, but does lead to some funny situations. more than once, ive had the entire tail boom knocked off, and managed to autorotate the rest of the helo with its CG apparently unaffected...once managed a boomless takeoff afterwards too. yea, that was swell. wish i had screensots or video

The Ka50 has the rain droplets on the windshield, the wiper has no effect on moving them so that you can see clearly. Hovering in a downfall is really challenging because you can barely see at the moment.



The Shkval seems unaffected by rain.
