Recon stuff could be worked in, depending on how the dynamic campaign is released (or on what servers decide to do with it I suppose). We already have a rough blueprint for something like it with the Viggen's ELINT pod.

Yeah, but that's nothing Heatblur could do. The dynamic campaign would indeed be a great opportunity for ED to create some recon features, but for now there is no use for that in DCS.

DCS Panavia Tornado (IDS) really needs to be a thing!

There was no framework for ELINT before the Viggen either...

That would rule out any kind of new capabilites in DCS, is that really a reason?
HB anounced the TARPS for the F-14, so RECON will come anyway somehow.

And I also see a use for that even at the current stage of DCS. Depends on what kind of missions your a flying.
ELINT is already some kind of RECON, RF-RECON to be precise.

There still isn't. The kneeboard is a pretty rough workaround and you can't make much use of it.

Yea the only way is with the Elint app which is nice, but it would be nicer if it could be linked to DCS somehow

Silly question from an uninitiated - why is this thread in the Heatblur forum? Have they confirmed working on one?

Thanks.

They have not, but they have hinted that they are working on something uses their existing technologies. Between air to ground radar, swing wings, and back-seat AI, the Tornado fits the bill, so people are losing their stuff over it

Tornado IDS (interdictor/strike)

Because we are lacking the good Strike aircraft (and no, I don't count F-14 as such).
