Default DCS: AH-1S

Тема для обсуждения будущего модуля AH-1S

Хотелось бы сразу спросить:
- читал на общедоступных ресурсах, что версий S было несколько (ранние, поздние...). Какая будет у нас?
- будет ли у нас лазерный дальномер в прицеле?
- нашлемное целеуказание?
- ПНВ?
- будет ли СПО?
- тепловизор? Читал позже поставили, но может уже на другую модификацию, не уверен.
- какие птуры (какие версии tow)?
- ожидаемый год выхода в свет (хотя бы альфа; 2018/19/20...)?

AH-1S Cobra

The AH-1S series was a three-step program to upgrade all existing AH-1G/AH-1Q/AH-1R Cobras to an advanced Modernized version. All AH-1S Cobras were eventually redesignated by the US Army as AH-1P, AH-1E, or AH-1F Modernized Cobras. All Modernized Cobras, including the AH-1S, AH-1P, and AH-1E used the M73 reflex sight for optical sighting and fire control and the Telescopic Sight Unit (TSU). None of the four armament subsystems used with the four AH-1S variants (Modified, Production, Upgunned, and Modernized) were interchangeable without considerable modification or conversion of the AH-1S aircraft.

The designation Modified AH-1S (also sometimes written as "AH-1S Mod") referred to all existing AH-1G/AH-1Q/AH-1R Cobras modified to Production AH-1S standard beginning in 1976. With the addition of the XM65 TOW/Cobra missile subsystem the Cobra's primary mission changed to the anti-tank role, but retained the direct aerial fire support, armed escort, and reconnaissance missions. The new armament subsystem was redesignated M28A2. The Modified AH-1S could be identified by the snub-nosed mounting of the Telescopic Sight Unit (TSU). This AH-1S had the traditional rounded crew canopy, instead of the new semi-flat canopy that became standard with the new production AH-1S. Some Modified AH-1S Cobras also received the C-NITE upgrade, which allowed the gunner to designate and acquire targets during night or adverse operating conditions.

The Production AH-1S (also sometimes written "AH-1S Prod"), Step 1 of the program, which totaled 100 aircraft, were completed between March 1977 and September 1978. This was the new production Cobra featuring a then new Bell-designed seven-plane semiflat crew canopy, an improved T-shapped instrument and control panel layout arranged to enhance nape-of-the-earth (NOE) flight, and new composite rotor blades. The Production AH-1S was equipped to fire the BGM-71 TOW missile using the XM65 Airborne TOW/Cobra anti-tank missile system with the M128 helmet sight subsystem (HSS). The Production AH-1S was equipped with an upgraded AlliedSignals Engines T53-L-703 1800 shp turbo shaft engine, gearbox, and transmission, providing additional power that had been lacking in the AH-1Q. The Production AH-1S mounted the new M28A3 armament subsystem with M134 minigun and M129 grenade launcher and retained the 2.75 inch rocket system. The M28A3 was converted from existing stocks of M28A1 armament subsystems. This version was first fielded with the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, North Carolina in August 1977. The Production AH-1S could be identified by the new flat panel canopy. The Production AH-1S was redesignated AH-1P Cobra. The AH-1P could use the M130 flare and chaff dispenser.

The Upgunned AH-1S, Step 2 of the program, totaled 98 new production aircraft, and were completed between September 1978 and October 1979). This version was also sometimes referred to as the Enhanced Cobra Armament System (ECAS) Cobra or Cobra ECAS, and featured a new 20mm/30mm universal gun turret and retained the M65 TOW/Cobra missile system. The new M97A1 universal turret was fitted with the three-barrel M197 20mm automatic gun with automatic compensation for off-axis gun firing. Since this aircraft lacked the rocket management system (RMS) it could not use the 2.75 inch rocket system that was standard on all other model Cobras. The Upgunned AH-1S could be identified by the tapered tips on the new fiberglass main rotor blades. The Unpgunned AH-1S was redesignated as the AH-1E Cobra, with the M65 TOW/Cobra missile system, and was modified with the M97A3 armament subsystem. The AH-1E could also use the M130 flare and chaff dispenser.

The AH-1S Modernized Cobra, Step 3 of the program, totaled 530 aircraft, and were completed between November 1979 and June 1981. Of 530 Modernized Cobras, 387 were converted for old AH-1G Cobras and 143 were new Production aircraft. The Modernized Cobra featured a new fire control system with a pilot's M76 Head-Up Display (HUD), M136 Helmet Sight Subsystem (HSS), laser rangefinder and tracker, and M26 Fire Control Computer (FCC). The modernization program also added an M143 Air Data Subsystem (ADS). The installation of the M147 Rocket Management Subsystem (RMS) permitted use of the standard 2.75 inch rocket system, in addition to the M65 TOW/Cobra missile system, and the M197 20mm gun on the new M97A2 universal turret. The Modernized AH-1S could mount M158 seven-tube, M200 19-tube, M260 seven-tube, or M261 19-tube rocket launchers. The Modernized AH-1S Cobra had an infrared jammer mounted on the top of the engine fairing and a hot metal plus plume infrared suppressor extending from the back of the engine. The Modernized AH-1S could be identified by the air data sensor mounted above the right side of the canopy. The AH-1S Modernized Cobra was ultimately redesignated as the AH-1F Cobra

Аирвар конечно неплохой ресурс, но там много неточностей. К примеру в вооружении указаны 16(!) птур Hellfire, при этом я так и не нашел фоток где их было бы хотя бы четыре. И подозреваю что та версия что могла их применят уже называлась AH-1W.

Поэтому не хотелось на аирвар ссылку давать. А то еще меня засмеяли бы и унизили)) Тут только дай волю слабине, так съедят.

Вообще, пишут что благодаря лазерному дальномеру повысилась точность стрельбы нарами. Как прицеливались, если без ИЛСа?
Ну и у разных S'ок была разная мощность двигателя.

Наличие HUD'а сильно зависит от того какую версию будут делать. Как выше уже заметили HUD имел армейский вариант AH-1F.

На корейских AH-1S точно есть RWR. Зеленый индикатор справа.
