One guy on reddit (slamonfingers) said something right :

"[...] it might be a F-100 Super Sabre?
It fits the 'super' clue, looks a bit like the shadow in the recon photo, and served with the Thunderbirds."

I could add that the A-4 Skyhawk could also be a theory, having served in the Blue Angels.

Or, due to "suprises", it could be a CM-175 Zéphyr.

Soko G-4 Super Galeb. Hasn´t that bird been suggested before in this thread ?
Yep, best guess from my POV.

I'm sorry but I really hope they haven't been hyping us up for a trainer. :/ Yes I know the G-4 is a light attack aircraft but it's still not that capable.

Everything is unconfirmed though so maybe there's still hope.

Note that the filename ends with ".gif.jpg." I have no idea about that stuff, but could it be that it´s a gif and we can get it "moving" somehow ?
Is that some electronics stuff, a plan for wiring something similar ?
Which means that the box from yesterday is an aerobatic box:


Hmmm

This thread is great fun. 50% are just the most random airframes that ever flew this planet, the other 49% is people just randomly calling 'proper' aircraft they want the most in DCS and try to connect the hints to it, and 1% is actually trying to connect all the hints and then make an educated guess with substantiation. You gotta love this kind of teasing

6: a partially flown eight sided loop
7: inverted flight? -> dashed lines
10: just a straight path?

arrows mean full or half roll

The link is not working for me but here it is: http://www.vmfa-531.com/leathernecksim/coming-soon/. Maybe one of the aircraft they flew?

It's possible. Since I've actually logged time in the T-6, I wouldn't mind helping M3 out if that's the case!
