Default After the Tomcat?

So since the Tomcat is going full steam ahead, just out of curiosity, been wondering what could be next in the pipeline for DCS by Heatblur? Personally I just hope it's a century series fighter, or a straight wing jet like the F-80 or Dassault Ouragan. Anyhow was just curious, as have always been

We're working on another complex jet which will make good use of our own technologies. We're also looking at expanding the F-14 product, but will look more closely at what exactly that means after release. That said, 2018 will be mostly the year of improvements to both the F-14 and Viggen.

We don't want to be stuck in the eternal Beta rut.

That is certainly wonderful! However I only hope it does have a combat history behind it, but it's really great to know, keep up the good work

Complex jet with Heatblur technologies, like for example two-seater and swing wing? Oh please dear god let it be a Tornado IDS, preferably a mid 90s version with a nice JaboG 33 skin . And with the optional model of a young Luftwaffe medic spending his free time standing at the flight line watching flight operations with big eyes and maybe an even bigger boner

That's exactly what I thought. I think it's a good bet, because Heatblur technologies that are needed for the Tornado are:
- Ground Mapping Radar
- JESTER AI
- Swept Wing

It would be a dream come true!

Edit: Talking about "expanding the F-14 product", an F-14D would also be very welcomed!

My guess and hope for an F-14 expansion would be an LTS pod for the 'B' and the relevant changes to the cockpit. Well worth paying extra for in my view.
I'm completely with you regarding a Tornado IDS btw. Having a Tomcat and a Tornado would be my ultimate dream. You never know. Fingers crossed.
