This one would probably be complex and not sure if it is even possible but...

Id like to see a EPLRS item added that allows ground forces to send a 9 line CAS request to a pilot. the pilot would then see a new window somewhat like the RWR display pop up only it would display the 9 line instead of the RWR obviously.

The item should bring up a dialoag similar to the artillery computer that requests all the information for the 9 line(https://rdl.train.army.mil/soldierPortal/atia/adlsc/view/public/23432-1/FM/3-21.20/image118.jpg) then transmit the data to the pilot.

It would also be nice to see the feature of SADL that any ground unit equiped with an EPLRS appears as an X on the hud of the CAS aircraft so that it is easy to distinguish friends from foe. Tanks strykers etc are all equipped with EPLRs so they appear on the HUD.

Also since most CAS aircraft like the A-10 do not have radar ground or air. It would be most realistic if the HUD ONLY showed boxes around units equipped with EPLRs and none around enemy vehicles unless they had mavericks pulled up.

not sure if any of this is possible but just a simple request to look into it if it is :)
