This is the next stage for Heatblur, you know it makes sense lol ...

I spent hours playing TORNADO - Digital Integration in 1993 it was way ahead of its time.

Only if they actually do the SH-60F and HH-60H. For some reason, every developer out there puts SH-60Bs on carriers. 60Bs are Shoe Kites. They hung out on small boys. 60F and 60H had totally different missions tailored for CVW ops, and are actually way more interesting to me, having flown them IRL...

I heard that Side-by-side seating is difficult to development.
Please hear us your opinion.
This is a point of A-6E and future helicopter(I hope SH-60 as same as I told past).

I think since the F-14 A-B, A-4 and the F/A18C Hornet are here. Why not make SH-3 ?

The prospect of Heatblur making a helicopter is exciting indeed.

There are many interesting machines which as of yet are not in DCS:

Mi-14 (amphibious)
Mi-2 (The Red gazelle)
Mi-24 with rotating gun turret (Mi-24D?)
(Mi-24 with doorgunner?)
Ka-26 (even more agile)
PZL W-3 Sokół

That's only the Russian/Eastern Block helis...

I can get behind that.

HH-60G/MH-60G Pave Hawk!

It would introduce a helicopter into DCS that would be able to fulfill a whole slew of different missions in a modern day high threat environment. It's a specialized CSAR/Special Operations platform. Sure, technically you can fly those missions in a UH-1H or a Mi-8, but in a high threat environment and adverse weather conditions they are very ineffective. Here are some of the Pave Hawks onboard systems:

INS/GPS/Doppler navigation
SATCOM satellite communications
Secure/anti-jam communications
LARS (Lightweight Airborne Recovery System) range/steering radio to compatible survivor radios
Automatic flight control
NVG night vision goggle lighting
FLIR forward looking infrared
Color weather radar
Engine/rotor blade anti-ice system
Retractable in-flight refueling probe
Integral rescue hoist (60.7 meters)
RWR combat enhancement
Infrared jamming unit
Flare/chaff countermeasure dispensing system
Two M60, M240, M2 or M134 crew guns including additional door mounts for two M2's.
3,600kg capacity cargo hook
Folding rotor blades and a tail stabilator for shipboard operations
Provisions for the External Stores Support System (a.k.a external stores)

Pretty please HeatBlur? What's not to like?

-Col. Russ Everts opinion on surface-to-air missiles: "It makes you feel a little better if it's coming for one of your buddies. However, if it's coming for you, it doesn't make you feel too good, but it does rearrange your priorities."

  • F-16C-40/42 Fighting Falcon

Fun speculation

Swedish HKP-9 (also known as Bo-105) The project was picked up by a 3rd party as a joint-venture.
Maybe Heatblur?

1: It is Swedish.

2: It fits great with the AJS-37 Viggen.

3: One of the SME's is Swedish with ties to the Viggen dev crowd.
