Default Does Heatblur have a roadmap for potential future modules?

If so, could you share it with us? They would just be potential modules that you all are showing interest in doing and not set in stone in any way.

yeah, i know that lol, but still, they must have some sort of idea on what would be next. Just asking what they are thinking. Pretty sure everyone knows that they will be solely focusing on the 14 and 37 for a pretty good while.

It can take years to negotiate the license agreement with ED, the manufacturer and then with the governments etc.

So they do know what are the possibilities and what they want to do (their own wishlist) and when they can confirm the license etc, they likely then start the work deeper (they might have done some demos for the presentation etc) and after something to show, then tell it to the community.

They hinted earlier that they might do the A-6E eventually. Like, turn the AI A-6E they are working on into a flyable module. But that's a big IF and nothing even remotely confirmed.

That's all I was wanting was their wishlist, nothing more than a list of what they want to do if everything were to go their way. I know, and am expecting, that they will be working on their current modules for a couple years before releasing anything new.

F-4E is already being done by ED. Take it as you will.

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

IIRC he also said in one of the podcast/livestream interviews around the release of the Tomcat that it will be a multi-engine jet, but don't quote me on that.
