That book is nice and all but it leaves out a lot of content. I would recommend this book instead:
http://www.amazon.com/The-Complete-E.../dp/0760705925

Plus it is way less expensive

Important parts bolded.

I'm pretty confident in making this estimate, otherwise I wouldn't have written it. That said, the wording is careful for a reason. The F-14, especially our take on it, is an incredibly complex and massive project.
I don't want to fill that special place in hell reserved for bad renditions of the Cat.

Regardless, we have two aircraft slated for release this year, of which one is modern.
Both are significantly further along.
One is modern! That is great news!


F-16 confirmed?

According to Wikipedia "the modern era began approximately in the 16th century" so that doesn't narrow it down much for the modern aircraft. OTOH, the pre-modern one has to be DCS: X-wing. Long time ago in a far away galaxy, eh?

And I seem to have missed that bit about one being modern, Slipp. Thanks for quoting.

It depend from where. Started in 1860tys in Japan with the Meiji Era.

so, after 9 pages of guesses, what are the main suspects ?

I believe one of the left two is Mitsubishi A6M Zero. Just look at Rudel's avatar which is Jiro Horikoshi from animation 'The Wind Rises' directed by Hayao Miyazaki.

Another modern aircraft this year before the Tomcat, possibly with air-ground radar, possibly with a Duck nickname. I am completely lost
