Yup, the replacement process has been going on since about 2010. Most of the Zulu Cobras in Marine service today are converted Whiskeys, but about a quarter of all the airframes are newly built. Not sure if the USMC order is finished or still in progress. 

In other news, the state-run Polish Armaments Group recently signed a memorandum with Bell about potential collaboration in the Viper/Venom programme if the AH-1Z is selected as the replacement for our Mi-24Vs. 

I really hope we get a Cobra in DCS, the prospect of a full-on Iran-Iraq war reenactment is just too enticing.

If I remember correctly, BelSimTek (when they were still an independent company, and not attached to Eagle Dynamics) announced the Mi-24P and the AH-1G.

The Mi-24P is supposed to come out later this year, so who knows about the status or future of the AH-1G.


My guess is that the Cobra is on the deep backburner.
