DCS: Black Shark 3 is a further development of the well-known Black Shark and Black Shark 2 projects, which are dedicated to the Russian Ka-50 attack helicopter.
The Ka-50 is the world's only single-seat coaxial combat helicopter. It can effectively perform anti-tank missions, provide close air support and hit point targets on the battlefield with a wide range of weapons.
The Black Shark 3 version implements new functionality such as: Igla air-to-air missiles, which significantly expand the air-to-air capabilities and a new defence system that detects missiles launched at the helicopter. Also, for the first time in DCS, a physical model of the Inertial Navigation System (INS) has been implemented with all features including: alignment before the flight, drift error accumulation and the ability to correct according to preset fixpoints.
