An Intruder is OK but it would be even better if they keep following the cat route and go for a D

Heatblur has confirmed that if the F-14A/B sells well they will develop the F-14D

Heatblur has an incredible thing going here and really needs to pursue the A-6E and further upgrades to the Tomcat.

It all seems to be coming together, slowly...but surely. Forestall class aircraft carriers, Tomcats, Intruders....this could really become an incredible simulation of 80's-90's U.S. Naval Aviation.

No, they haven't. They said that it's in their projects list, but they haven't confirmed nor promised to develop a D (to the great dismay of some of us, I agree).

Heatblur has developed the F-14B without PTID and Sparrowhawk because they plan to develop the F-14D, Heatblur said that an F-14D is quite likely, so it is quite confirmed.

Functionality wise, you'll already be very well off in the -B due to the LANTIRN.

One thing to note is that our LANTIRN implementation relies on feeding the video through the fishbowl display. This was (according to our research, at least) - not something that was widely used in the fleet. Thus it can be considered to be a somewhat "experimental" version of the F-14 that existed for a short period.

It's not! Likely doesn't mean't definitely! It's comments like yours that cause all the complaints about broken promises that never have been promises!

Likely does not equal confirmed. Please don't pour fuel on the hype fire.

One of the problems recently revealed however was one of documentation, which as far as I know, hasn't been resolved.
