I'm on my way through the very rewarding "Combat Order - Falkland 1982 V1.1 (by C98)" campain.

Loving it and the Gazelle, my new favourite!

But the tablet is missing, and I do have to change model in ME on some missions to get a bird with weapons. (Where pre choice = TOW)
Are the old models still there, and not upgraded, or what is going on?

The tablet uses GPS, so is only available in missions dated after march 1994

Tablets did not exist in 1994 either. I think I got my first on 2006 (nokia 770, was often compared to PDAs and acquired later bluetooth GPS module). Although there were dedicated Garmin/TomTom devices. There were phones like motorola 925 which featured GPS and had an APP tp show map tiles. 

I like it but also think they kind of messed up with this:

- wrong year span

- tablet should have more features, but they do not plan to extend it yet

🤣 I ran it this same issue using modern planes in Normandy. JDAM bombs were way off. It never crossed my mind to check the date setting.

JDAMs don't rely on GPS. They can be aided by GPS, yes, but they don't require GPS as they are inertially guided munitions. So using JDAMs without GPS shouldn't be a problem, as long as you keep your aircraft's nav system updated.
