One of my favorite aircraft since I first saw them in the mid-80's. When my dad was stationed at RAF Fairford, we used to go to RAF Upper Heyford fairly routinely and I loved to see the F-111E's taking off and landing. We were over there when El Dorado Canyon went down. I remember seeing the KC-10's and wondering why so many of them were on the ramp at Fairford. We found out the next day. We then moved to Holloman AFB in New Mexico and would see the F-111D's from Cannon doing low level runs on occasion... pretty exciting to see them suddenly appear and disappear just as quickly.

As much as I think Heatblur would do a good job with it, I'd expect a DCS: F-111 to come from BST. Of course I really want multiple versions of the F-111, specifically the D, E, F and FB-111A (for delivering lollypops, puppy dogs and sunshine... without all of the lollypops and puppy dogs that is) and I think Heatblur are a better candidate for delivering multiple versions.

With the exception of the FB-111A, the other three versions look the same externally but have major differences internally in avionics and capability. The D had the very complex and very capable (when it was working) Mark II avionics, The E was basically an F-111A with the Triple Plow II intakes, and the F had a mix of the Mark II avionics and the more reliable pieces of other versions of the F-111 cobbled into the avionics suite plus the more powerful TF-30-P-100 engines (of which the exhaust nozzle supplied the only real external difference from the D and E). The F was also Pave Tack and GBU-15 capable which means that it was the only US F-111 that was capable of self designating LGB's. The FB-111A had longer wings and the Mark IIB avionics specifically tailored for sunshine delivery as specified by SAC. It was also rated at a lower G limit than the TAC F-111's so when SAC was done with them and TAC was taking them over, they had to be beefed up structurally and the avionics modified to expand their conventional weapons delivery which changed their designation to F-111G.

MiG-23MLD

All beautiful aircraft. I would love to see something that has not been done yet. Like a B-1B Lancer.

That would be keeping in line with their "original plans". However a Tornado would also be very welcome, I'm just personally rooting for the MiG-23. It would provide the iconic opponent for the F-14, Bear aside, and be a nice and very much needed addition to the MP scene. More so than the Tornado on that front.
