Given that it is 2035, any of the helicopters (except maybe the Pawnee/hummingbird, due to weight restrictions and likely employment) should definitely have Missile Warning Receivers and Radar Warning Receivers. The Mohawk model actually has MWS blisters on the nose and tail, so removing that feature is a bit naff.
I support the radars being removed from the helicopters though. I'd suggest this should be removed from the Blackfoot as well, as the planned implementation of the radar was a Apache Longbow setup above the main rotor. I acknowledge if the radar must be included to get DAGRs etc to work though.
A better solution would be to reduce the effectiveness of flares or just have a bit more fidelity on how they actually decoy missiles. I'm pretty sure IIR missiles (that is, Imaging IR.) aren't actually decoyed by flares anyway.
The model for BOTH Slammers has a 105mm gun in any case. I agree that both vehicles should use a 120mm gun as the 105mm would be woefully underpowered in the timeframe ARMA3 is set in.
Failing that, add the .50cal RCWS to the regular Slammer.
So is this a bug, or are we missing the point of how the re-arm/repair is supposed to work?
