The availability of the BlackShark 2 in the missions is entirely dependent on when ED release the A-10C 1.10 compatibility patch. I'd really like to upgrade my missions (especially Rampant Bear) to get the shark in if at all possible - both as BLUEFOR and REDFOR aircraft.
If there is enough time to put Sharks in the mission, give them some cool sharkey things to do, test it all, and give enough time for all the A-10C players to get the patch installed then Sharks will definitely be in.
Otherwise, it'll have to be something anticipated for Fly-In III
See you all there.
