I don't see this as a contradiction or an endorsement.

Cobra mentioned it's bigger so I assume he means bigger in size

It's in the context of the aircraft's systems, so I doubt that he means the dimensions of the aircraft.

Seems like a sensible choice given some of the commonalities, but I figure the F-14 will probably be the first multicrew release from Leatherneck, and the other two are planned to come out this year.

Yes I know they are really T-6 Texans, but still.
Would be awesome, not only for the F-14, but for the P-51 and P-40. (And the possible F4U)

Ay 2:51 that F-14 That rolls on its back and dives at the water almost went in.

(Got that DVD for Christmas)

Whats amazing to watch in that video is how maneuverable the F-14 Was at slow speeds.

Aahh that movie is one of my favorites. First thing I would make when the F-14 and A6M2 modules will be released, is the recreation of the aborted showdown scene. What a frustration…

Lol! The ultimate heavy lift aircraft! It would be more "complex" than the Tomcat. You need a flight engineer to fly the thing! Lol

Well if by complex we are talking about crew then something like a B-17 or He-111 for the WWII setting would be awesome to see.
