I say they should release it now as early access, the only things I want to see on the first release are Battle Damage Effects and
FOD Effects. But these 2 things don't need more than 2 months to complete, right??

Having an authentic sound to the aircraft as to the feel and characteristics to it would make me instantly buy the Tomcat and stay in my mancave for weeks. I really do hope that Heatblur places in new sounds soon, I saw a post on their FB where they were recording sounds but yet they still use Viggen sounds in the game since Episode 1.

They can't do that, they can't find an F-14 and fire up the engines. Unless they go to Iran? But that would be the TF30.

All F-14s in US museums either had their engines removed or starved of fuel to destroy them. No museum Tomcat will ever fire up again.

Yep...

At best, *BEST*, they could find a TF-30 to fire up outside of the aircraft, but that's it.

Not universally the case. The F-14D in the Smithsonian is in ready to fly condition (actually one of the criteria for inclusion) and the F-14A at the Valiant Air command did not have anything of the sort done to it.

The Valiant F-14A was flown in and parked, with 3 or 4 components removed (including the control stick). It has been there since ~2000 so I doubt it would start or run without a massive overhaul, but not all of the engines were "destroyed" per se.

Running the engine outside the aircraft might not be the the best option. I am sure they can find a great set/gallery of engine sounds floating around on the internet. I doubt they would be able to find a working F110-GE-400 anyway.

If there is already an F-14 in favorable conditions and able for its engines to be fired up, then it is well plausible. The question is how they would be able to negotiate on terms of doing it.

You have any idea the cost of that? There’s plenty of audio out there floating around to clean up and use.
