Though I think aircraft like the MiG-23 or F-4 would be easier to get info on. And I would prefer those as modules too, because I really like retro tech.

At least it seems that if not soviet, we'll get chinese aircraft... Actually works for me.... Cockpits in russian, in Ike...swedish and now chinese... Awesome

The Gr4 is the more modern upgrade to the Tornado circa mid 1990s- early 2000s.( assuming theres enough public source data, or the MOD doesn't interfere) Gr4 has more modern electronics like a Mulifunction displays and will employ modern precision guided weapons, and targeting pod ( Lightening pod) . Its going to be more of current doctrine ( in part due to technology advance) Fly High to avoid as many surface to air threats as possible , and employ precision guided bombs, and longer range stand off weapons to strike targets. its essentially more characteristic of current 4th gen aircraft.
Even thogh RAF Tornados GR.1 started Operation Desert Storm in 1991 with low level attacks, after quite a few loses due to AAA in airfields, they switched to mid altitude with TIALD pods (sometimes carried by Buccaneers instead) and Paveway bombs once the Iraqui SAMs were deemed less of a threat than AAA. Targeting pods, and precision strike are not exclusive of the GR.4.

no more guessing box...
Why is there no chance for these two planes?

MiG-29/Su-27 are not going to happen because: they are Russian and above 3rd generation, we say so, they are already present in FC3, there is not much demand (compared to Western aircraft).

So, no chance. The best we can hope for is a MiG-23/25 (not likely), Su-15/22. But we are never going to see these.

Actually the reason is the latest change to Russian espionage laws, which can be especially restrictive to private companies, depending on their interpretation which is up to the Russian MOD and courts.

I believe that not only would Eagle Dynamics need permission from the respective design bureaus, but from the Russian MOD as well, but even with these permissions the legality of putting out these modules is open to interpretation and question by the courts.

At least that's the word on the grapevine.
