I called it many pages ago and i'm sticking with it:

AS532 Cougar or
H125M as it is known today.

UL/AL or SC, i'll take any and all.

Call me ungrateful but I am not looking forward to ANOTHER scout/transport helicopter.

Sure we have the Mi-24 coming, and once its here we will have two "attack" helicopters. The KA-50 is an anti-tank helicopter and it could be argued that the Mi-8 is one as well to an extent but its more of a troop transport with weapons. I feel like its more capable than the UH-1 in that respect, but I have a lot more fun flying the UH-1.

Anyways - we will have the BO, Gazelle, UH-1, and Mi-8 and still have zero western 'gunship style attack' helicopters. Yeah the BO and Gazelle mount ATGMs but its very limited and the OH-58 will be as well.

Growing up I logged a LOT of time in Gunship 2000 and Longbow 2 and maybe its just me but I am DYING for an AH-1 Cobra to fly. Hell Id settle for the Tiger or the T129.


Although my opinion doesnt matter much since they posted they already have the module's 3D model finished..

The first hint from polychop long time ago was mentioning another airbus helicopter. Then the second hint was somewhat pointing at the Kiowa. So situation is a bit confused now.

The AH-1 is coming, but still there are some that would be worth to "die for" like your mentioned Tiger.

One really interesting could be a KA-27 as anti-submarine and maritime recon as well rescue ops.

Maybe a fugly chopper but now when sea operations are coming and we have carrier landings to fail and hit sea... We need it ;-)

I would much rather have the Tiger than the Ka-27.

We only get carrier operations, but nothing more than that. DCS does not support ASW, RECCE or SAR (only some user scripts provide minimal SAR functionality) and that probably won't change with carrier ops.
So before we get a navy chopper DCS needs to be extended with these features first (at least ASW and proper SAR).

That is what we can hope after 2.5 release when developers get time to return for other things than engine.
