Default The Cobra

Hey Gents,

This is a question for the devs at Belsimtek. Since the first day you mentioned it, my father and I were on edge waiting to see the Cobra come out. I grew up blocks from the Bell Plant and watched them test fly the helicopter daily. The sound of her coming in and taking off is something I will never forget. It was my fathers favorite helicopter. He has sinced passed due to health complications and never got to see your amazing work.

Of all the modules promised or forecasted, this is the one I have waited for the most, until someone anounces the Aerospatiale Dauphin. My question is, are you still looking at doing the Cobra, and if so, any little bit of news you could give on it? Even if its a one word answer.

I usually do not beg, but this is something I really hope will see the light of day. DCS world needs more Helo love and I know more are coming, but it will not be complete without the Cobra.

Thanks for the amazing job and all you do. The Huey, F-5, and F-86 are still hands down my favorite modules to fly.

Regards
Robert

Greatly appreciated sir. I know the routine. DCS world has a lot in common with military. Hurry up and wait. LOL. Thank you for the short burst of light.

Regards
Robert

What "short burst of light?" are you talking about? I've been waiting for the Cobra too but I doubt it will see the light of day. Last I heard it was cancelled.

Yeah, keeping everthing diffuse and unclear is probably really the better way to handle it ...

I doubt there is much to say, it seems like the 24 is first in line and even that one was recently mentioned as 'not being close' or something along those lines. Probably need to wait until the F18 is out, wait for them to get back to work on the 24, then wait for them to pick up the cobra again when done with that.
