Judging from the screenshot, it looks to be an A-6E with the TRAM (Target Recognition and Attack Multi-Sensor) turret under the nose.

Thx, A-6E:





It could be the best option for DCS (FLIR, camera too?)

Cocpit of A-6E http://www.navalaviationmuseum.org/nnam/virtualtour/ (take Cocpits from menu).

Not trying to be the spoilsport here, I like the A-6 as well, but given its complexity (multi-seat and systems) I'd prefer them - if they do it - to create the planned A-7 first.

So if they really manage to create two planes a year (which is ambitious!) it would be Mirage this year, then Harrier, A-7, and then move on to the even harder ones like the F-15E and the A-6.

well seeing as the harrier A-7 and F-15E are already being made id say an A-6 would come after all of those are done.

I think so. IMO it would be a good order.
But who knows, they changed the order at least once already (A-7 was before the Harriers) and they might do it again.

The reason the A-7 and F-15Es are not progressing is the Delay on the Air-Ground radar from ED.

But other then the Air-ground radar they are very far along.

So since they cant complete them they went on with the harrier.

And will complete the A-7 and F-15E once ED has finished the Air-Ground radar.

Since the alternative was to do nothing untill the Air-Ground radar came.

I know, I read that news.
Still there might be things happening again bevause of factors we don't know yet. So I probably wouldn't see the order as set in stone.

But seeing as the A-6 also needs the Air-Ground radar i doubt they would start on a new aircraft (or if its in early development)

when the F-15E and A-7 are so far along.

Unless one of the Aircraft Manufacturers (probably more likely for the F-15E then the A-7)
changes their minds and stops them from continuing
(which is very unlikely at this point)

i dont see the F-15E or A-7 being stopped at this point (to where a A-6 could be release before them)

And since the A-6 is also a Two seater (just as the F-15E) its not alot easier to make.

Id have nothing against a A-6 but i doubt a A-6 would come before the A-7 or F-15E.
