You might be right but what 3rd party has stayed within a reasonable time frame for final release. 3-5 years seems to be the norm in DCS, assure the player it won't take forever then say your sorry for the delay AFTER they have taken your money.

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

Dedicated Strike Aircraft, needs to be the F111 Aarvark. I got turned onto the "Pig" when i read it outshot the Warthog in desert storm. Twice the kills. And the EF111a Raven was THE goto SIGINT, reconnaissance, Electronic Warfare frame. (considering the ELINT topic)

The bottom line about the F111 Pig, when it was retired it took 2 aircraft to fill it workload. That being the B1 Lancer (which wasnt as fast, by half, and not versatile) and the F15 which was not as good as a strike craft, and not as fast either) when the EF111a Raven was retired, the Airforce had to back peddle to the Intruder, because there was nothing in the Services that could replace the Spark-Vark.

plus, i want to land it on a Carrier, Melt it in mid air, light up the nighttime battlefield with the dump and burn, eject in the Boat/Pod, and fly the first DCS carpet bomber.

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

Uhm, this is a bit OT here, as this thread is not about strike aircraft in general, but about the Tornado and its variants...
Besides that we already have a good setup of US jets and more are comming, unlike European jets...

Whichever Tornado aircraft is possible (Barring the Air defense version). Any of those GR series or IDS variants would be good.


But I doubt Heatblur has plans about this...They've been hinting more on that slow A-6 intruder. I much prefer the latter being just an AI. But seeing as its the one on the possible roadmap. Maybe we can expect the Tornado...whichever variant it is, during 2024 or 25.

Heatblur stated years ago, that their policy is to only announce new aircraft modules when they're far into development and close to (EA) release, with the Tomcat beeing the exception. They already put this policy into action with the Viggen, which was released pretty shortly after it got officially revealed. So I'm not too convinced that an A-6 will be their next playable aircraft
