S!
If you meant to imply I would like to fly an early Allison P-51/P-51A/A-36 more than a P-51B/C, you may be right. The differences between the P-51B/C and P-51D are fairly minor other than the canopy compared to an Allison vs Merlin engined Mustang. I would love to have all the Mustangs modeled to the level of the current DCS P-51D. An Allison P-51 with 4x20mm would be quite the beast at sea level. I love the nose of the Allison P-51. There were even A-36 Apache's with Malcom hoods. Not to forget the F-6 photo recon variants. The Mustangs have a lot more to offer than just the ever popular P-51D.

Unfortunately, the DCS level of quality tends to drive having only one major variant of any one aircraft. The cost effectiveness of developing even somewhat major variants is almost always going to prevent having more than one variant of any given aircraft.

For example, a developer can produce a P-51 variant or a new aircraft like the P-38? For all the work involved, which one will generate more sales/profit? A completely new aircraft or a variant of one that most people that would buy it already owns?

True, although there are some exceptions.



A-10A and A-10C

The A-10A is not a case study sim like the C is, and the TF-51 is simply a real Mustang with the guns removed and no gunsight. Did ED even bother changing the CG or FM on it?
