YAK-52 should be next. We don't know how far along the AH-1 is so we don't know if the Cobra or the Viper will be after that. It is also subject to change so I doubt they will give more details on timelines until they are sure.

I'd love to see the Phantom though. Hopefully not too far behind.
Couldn't agree more! In this case I can get behind this business plan of a better short term gain to
better secure financial backing for the DCS series going forward. It's a win-win!

Developement is not going to be slower now that they are creating a lot of similar technologies for the Hornet that it shares with the Viper, plus they expanded pretty hardcore with BST joining forces. Im going to be optimistic for once and call that atleast three quarter of the modules mentioned will be in some form of public release (EA or Released) within five years.

Actually i recall wags sayings that more than a year was lost in the hornet just gathering info to recreate it as close to the real thing as possible, once that was solved the other great amounts was on developing technologies not done before like the AG radar, but the plane itself(textures, switches, etc could be 1.5 years).

If that is true, and we take into account that the gathering process is almost done (which i suspect it is) and radar AG technology is almost there (and FLIR remake has also started for the hornet) we could be talking of "just" 1.5/2 years until an EA F16C Viper

Lets see...5 years...I will only be 80 years old. For models I want to fly that are not in DCS, I have purchased models from other vendors. With all the arguing about the FM and all not being correct here in DCS I find that I am quite satisfied and enjoy these substitutions just as much as the supposedly defective models here. All the hype here on new models which leads to long periods of endless waiting is no more a thought.

So, I would not expect any F-4E news for quite some time.

Thanks
Matt, since the F-4E was originally scheduled for release this year, does that mean we will see the F-16 this year instead or are both aircraft expected further out than this year?

Just saw this. That's really bad news. The F-4 is on the very top of my wish list of all the announced modules (well, after the F-14). I would trade the F-4 for the Viper any day
