Thumbs up How to use the Kuznetzov without DCS:Supercarrier?

Currently Su-33 pilots can use the Kuznetzov without limitations.
Will that change with the DCS:Supercarrier module?
Do I have to buy the module to fly carrier mission on the Su-33?
I mean russia only have one carrier, so there is no alternative, like for the US carriers.

Okay so when I have to buy the module then I want a DCS:Tug and some replacement arresting wires included. Not to forget some "Без сварки!" stickers.

LOL... the kuz should come with a tug and broken cables.. i mean we do seek realism. Perhaps it had a secret power to sink drydocks and randomly catch fire while in port too.

Presumably nothing.
If you don't buy the SC you'll still have access to the current carrier - & there's no reason to believe that won't be "carriers

IDK. Makes some sense to offer new kuz to su33 owners for some low low price too.

At least it teamkilled almost 10 times less planes than Nimitz

There are 5x as many operational Nimitz-class ships carrying 5x more aircraft, though, so it's bound to be the case just by gross numbers. What's the mishaps per operational hour rate?

I'm under the impression that the Kuznetsov is only seeing a cosmetic update? I hope it gets better spawn locations as well but it would be nice to see that one being a free upgrade so people who only want to fly the Su-33 aren't forced into buying a module they don't want/need. I say that as someone who does plan to buy the super carrier though.

I'm sure ED will post pics and details. I get the logic of bundling it with the other stuff, but I also see other folks points about just wanting the Kuz. But I really think I want to stay away from "micro-transactions" in DCS. Pay 8 dollars for the new Kuz, and 5 for the Burke, and for just 9.99 you too can grow a big mustachio and lob scuds at airbases. Etc.. So if I have to pay 30-40 bucks for a bunch of ships, then fine.
