Once theres room in the pipe, i think a Pave Low variant would be an awesome addition to DCS.
Heavy helos are lots of fun and this one got lots of toys.

Insertion/CSAR (multiplayer) missions with A-10C support on the coming Afghanistan map for example ♥️

Only big helicopter I'd buy is the Chinook. Would prefer a western attack helicopter first though.

I'll second this - MH-53 is out of service too, so possibly less to get in the way. Full TFR & all the fun night-flying stuff *and* a big heavy-lift heli sounds a really fun combo. Sure it's a niche compared to CH-53 or a Chinook, but it's got more gadgets & can still do much the same job. Doesn't fully overlap with the Mi-8 or the incoming Hind, either.

The MH-53 would definitely be my first choice for a "big" helicopter! Can't wait to be frustrated by trying to learn to tank from a KC-130!!

We already have the MI-8 as a big, bulky helicopter. Helis are amazing, but I'm personally not too thrilled at the prospect of another fat, basically non-maneuverable rotary wing.

I would love to hear a response from one of the developers. Wondering if this is something that they are strongly considering or if its just an idea that was thrown into the community to see the response would be.

One day in DCS... Vipers will fly along side Tomcats... Bugs with Superbugs, Tiffy's with Tornado's, Fulcrums with Flankers and Mirage with Rafales...

Well, I'd like a Lynx too - a naval one going to be essential for any Falklands asset set anyway ( and please whoever does it get that incredibly angry sound of the older ones ones right, never heared another heli like that ) - but a MH-53 has added value in other areas. I'd agree if whatever heavy heli was just a utility aircraft, given the way the west doesn't really arm heavy helis the same.
