The SA80 was pretty poor rifle in general it is only now a good rifle in its l85a2 format (and perhaps i might add one of the best rifles in use at the moment) I'm glad their using the l1a1s, they won't jam every time they try to fire.

That's an interesting idea.
We'll keep it in mind for a patch.

Trials were still being done in 1986 (when they decided it would be the Mi-28 instead of the Ka-50)
Both the Ka-50 (32 built by the time of the article below) and the Mi-28 (43 built for CCCP and 14 for Venezuela) entered service in 1995 and 1996 respectively. So they are post-cold war material actually...

In 1994 those were not even included in the series of planes/helo's we had to learn for my Stinger duties...

Mi-28 was ready from the mid-80's and on the production line in the late 80's. Had not the Fall of Communism frozen the project for a decade, it would have been available in the early 90's.
