Default Igla implementation IRL

I've seen many contradicting info and comments on the implementation of Iglas in the KA-50, so I wonder: What did actually happen in regards to Igla integration into the Ka-50 in real life? Does anyone know of any real life information and/or pictures of Iglas on the Ka-50?

My guess
11 year of internet saying:" But why? I want them, WHAAAA!"

Even a loving parent cant take so much from their children, imagine strangers dealing with some else kids.

Because this capability has been required for years by the community despite ED's refusal. Almost since 2009 when the Ka50 was released. After countless discussions, rants, threats and "experts" exchanges, I guess ED gave up and decided to answer their customers.
I am fine with this though. If I don't want to give an air to air capability to Ka-50 in my missions, it's easy to restrict. Plus it is not totally unrealistic from a technical point of view to fire iglas from a Ka50. Also, it will give the kids on public/pvp servers something more to play with.

I think ED decided to add L370 DIRCM & Iglas for two reasons:
* 1st It makes the Ka-50 module more attractive for players, which means more $$$
* 2nd These additions are not too far off from reality. If the Russia MoD had decided to go the Ka-50 way it would get these systems for sure. The Ka-52 integrates them already.

I think there is nothing wrong with it, the systems will work as realistic as it could get, even if the context is fictional. But as a whole it makes sense.
On the other hand it shows that ED is flexible enough to allows "what if" content to some degree, maybe we get the canceled soviet aircraft super carrier 1143.7 Ullyanovsk (just dreaming).

If I was a KA-50 pilot I'd just carry an Igla launcher in the cockpit with me...

So really they're just saving me having to open the door...

Well, thats the standard Huey/Mi8/Gaz tactic online when you are operating alone. Load up a stinger/igla team. If you see a fast mover, land, deploy stinger enjoy the view.

Hmm, that's all rather disappointing. I was hoping for some info on real life implementation of Iglas in the Ka-50 to justify the upcoming Black Shark 3 module, but instead it seems like it will just be a fantasy module that gets implemented because some kids screamed "I WANT!" loud enough. Fantasy aircraft is really not what DCS should be about

And yes, of course I don't have to use it if I don't like it if I fly solo, but I almost exclusively fly multiplayer and it gets more and more difficult to find servers that disable fantasy stuff that got implemented by the devs for whatever reason.
