Well hey, if you can't get the Naval Phantom, Why not the Crusader?

As cool as it'd be to have things like a Crusader or an A1 or F-100D, aircraft of that complexity I feel should probably be left for new developers to have something to make to learn how to do things while still being popular in the community.

I wouldn't be against a developer like HB going that way, but just from a cosmic justice point of view that seems to be more appropriate.

If the F4 Phantom do come out without a camouflge and only a Navy Version do not count on me

I don't think there are enough differences between the air force and the navy version to justify making another module when ED have mentioned that they are making the F-4E. I just hope that they will include a navy version as well.

Well, the radar on the F-4J/S was a bigger and much more capable set (with PD) than the one on the F-4E and the VTAS HMS might be interesting. Unfortunately it didn't support guided A2G weapons IIRC, but at least it had the same bombing set as the USAF F-4's (unlike the earlier Navy variants).

I don't know if that's enough to justify Heatblur having to do the visuals and the flight model of the Phantom when ED has already said they are going to make them. I do get your point though and I would love to see Heatblur make a navy version of the Phantom if ED doesn't make one, especially considering it was originally developed for the navy.

Why are you mad at me? If it was in my hands the Phantom would be a priority. Both Navy and Air Force.
