Well, all I want is a-6a and f-4b; Early models for the navy and we have ourselves a decent era opponent for the mig-21 (and possibly the Mig 15 or 19 could sub for the 17) for Vietnam era combat.

For the airforce, an A-1 and an f105g would make my bucket list too, but I'd take the f-100 if BST want a successor for their f-86

well thw 21 we have is BIS which did not enter production until 1972, nor was this variant used in the vietnam war. SO personally i think for flexibility, we ought to have the A6E ( at minimum A6B, so we have a Sead capable intruder.)

I cant wait for an A6! would love a sead variant (more western sead badly needed). and to do some multicrew and have to do BLINK call outs on night runs with a shrike flying off the rail. would be cool if they impliment the flash as you shoot one. like blank the screen to simulate the blink. or even just have a white flash. fun opportunity for us vr players I think

im curious how implementation of bomb settings will be implimented since it was not an option in the cockpit. as stated before it was an interdictor similar to the viggen. attacking pre briefed targets. it obviously can do other stuff.

point is.... the settings for ripple are actually on the weapon rack so how will we as players change the setting? got these pics of it from one at an airshow couple years back. some nice views you dont see too often these days

No, read from p355

The "Bombardier-Navigator" can do all the settings in the cockpit.

actually look at the pictures since they clearly show those controls outside the pit. the one I saw was before e model. since doc you ref is for the E. do we know what version we are getting? if its before E model this is still an issue

The one in the pics looks like an E with the TRAM pod removed. The anti-collision lights on the bottom of the intakes were added to the TRAM to satisfy the FAA requirement for ventral anti-collision lighting. Previous A-6s used an add-on light that attached to the nosegear door when flying in US airspace.

EDIT: Great pics, btw!

What setting can you see on this rack ?
Do you see bomb ripple quantity or bomb spacing ? No.
Do you believe that such a sophisticated bomber, with terrain following radar wouldn't have such basic setting inside the cockpit ? (no matter what the version)
At best you have back up setting directly on the rack, in case of release computer failure, but these are paramount settings for any attack plane.

Don't worry, it will be on bombardier navigator's panels...

Here you have a view of the Armament control panel. I have a Natops flight manual, which covers A-6A/B/C/E and KA-6, but it's out of my reach for now.
