I don't believe Osprey is likely to be made. It must still be largely sekrit. And hard to implement correctly even if ED had all info necessary. I know that we already have a (buggy) Harrier, but still... It's not something I would bet my money on.

Maybe it's Tornado, maybe even F-111, might be century series fighter. Less likely it might be some Cold War era Red strike fighter like Su-17 or MiG-27. Even less likely is my dream of Su-27 or MiG-29 families. Choppers are not as likely as jets due to some wording convenientions in community.

All of this is just IMHO, of course.

An F-4E was already discounted, was it?

After achieving this, they could have sold a separate AV-8B N/A at full price for new customers or at a discount for existing Harrier owners, concentrating on all the fancy new year 2000+ avionics features and weapons.

Instead this is another aircraft stuck in eternal early access, burning up their company resources without generating new income. The upcoming F-15E is going to be exactly the same...
But the Av8B N/A was already in use in the gulf war......


The 2000s era N/A is only better by having newer AMPCD as opposed to the MPCD displays ( which in DCS makes no practical difference apart from looking more gucci) , GPS aided navigation , JDAM's , and the ability to use Lightening targeting pod vs relying only on the ARBS. Its really not that much more fancy. The plan that they had was to make N/A first, and then do the AV8B+ which will have slightly downsized APG 65 Radar


Razbam had already made av8b and other more complex aircraft in other sims.

ED is not Razbam. Harrier is not an ED product.

I know, but I didn't state that it was ED which made it, only that we have Harrier.

MiG-29A

Confirmed by Simon from ED as the aircraft that ED is looking at the possibility of doing.

That really is a great interview with lots of answers to many of the questions here in this forum and this thread.

Love how the same interview can be read in different ways:

I wouldn't expect any solid news before Q4, as ED said before

It is maintained in the air by a variety of forces in opposition to each other, and if there is any disturbance in this delicate balance the helicopter stops flying; immediately and disastrously.
