Default F-111

The F-111 would be the first strike aircraft on my wishlist. Tandem seating, supersonic on the deck, terrain following radar, and an immense arsenal of weapons it could deliver. It was the workhorse of the first Persian Gulf War and it's history dates from Vietnam to 2010. A truly incredible deep strike aircraft known as the Pig, but eventually received its nickname of "Aardvark" only after it was retired. Flown by the United States, United Kingdom and Australia, so its a win-win. Australia even used it in the anti-ship role and had a huge range.

The UK never operated the F-111
They have the Tornado instead, which offers pretty much the exact same capabilities as the F-111 (+ SEAD and STOL).

DCS Panavia Tornado (IDS) really needs to be a thing!

Yeah but with much less in-service history. I'd rather have a SU-24... But thats just me.

We actually ordered a few when TSR-2 cancelled, but cancelled this too and went on to co-develop the Tornado.

At altitude and high speed...you could feel it still accelerate past mach 2 not sure if that applies to many aircraft now....ok...didn't have a great turn rate...but it was never designed to be a dog fighter. Still...would be a fun aircraft to add.

You know, doing some research and the thought occurred to me;


de Havilland Sea Vixen


Weird, British, multicrew jet. Carrier-based, only armament were missiles, bombs, and rockets (no internal gun in production models). Somewhat difficult to fly, and the main protagonist in the night glowworm attack, which is the single craziest attack profile I've heard of, non-nuclear edition.

F-111 --- deepstrike/interdiction platform of the cold war - low-level terrain-following-radar - multi-crew - swing-wing - forward-looking-infra-red ...
lots to work with here

It's funny how almost everyone of you spells Tornado wrong.
It's TORNADO not F111, not Mig, not SU, not something else.
