Wouldnt the OH-6 Cayuse be an option, for the MH-6 Littlebird?
Id love to see the Cayuse in DCS. Hence its presence in my sig .

The OH-6 Cayuse variant is unclassified but wouldn't exactly fit in with the modern war maps we have now.Because the original OH-6 Loach variants from Vietnam to the last years of the Cold War were retired a long time ago i think.But i hope we still get one some day.

How about some diplomacy at work. Let say that simmers would love to put hands on lot of new birds but since this RL vs SimLife barrier is getting thinner and lot of defense Intel is still classified (with a obvious reason) how about some modules development allowed based on year lock, let say 20 years back in time tech is allowed to be replicated in commercial sims based on declassified documents? And I mean that scope is not external model but mainly pilot interactive systems and features. Reverse engineering should not be scope of this agreement and that would mean that that module version developed this way is signed as not supported by official unclassified documents. Correct weapon engagement procedure is not really focus of flight sims, its more about war games, maneuvering and offensive vs defensive tactics which would, in theory, use this classified technology in just small portion of sim procedures - weapon engagement preparation, and I think that no hardcore simmer would insist on this to be implemented consistently thus endangering national security of any nations army. There should be some agreement beyond ED to make this "sport" safe of unreasonable restrictions.

I think helicopter development should be above the baseline of the UH-1 and Gazelle. I can't imagine a Littlebird would sell that well anyway. Or troop carriers for that matter. If Combined Arms was comparable to ARMA or even Battlefield 2, I could see some value in light but relatively fragile scouts as well as troop movers. A.I. assets are another thing, but also a different level of production.

If the Mi-8 and Huey are any indication, I don't think its unreasonable to say that something like an MD500 or S70i (Export UH60M) will do equally well.

Especially since both would be able to equip a bunch of different weapons, and/or serve as a troop transport. There are a bunch of people salivating over the CH-53 that RAZBAM (I think it was) teased a while back. And that's a dedicated heavy transport with no real offensive capabilities.

The S-70 would be sick. It's the closest thing the west has to the MI-8 , and can perform so many missions. Would be a day one buy for me.

Any Western military helicopter would be an auto-buy for me! You can keep the Russian stuff.
