Here we go again trying to break the forums by putting DCS-(favorite aircraft) on a non-official thread! Ya'll almost gave me a heart attack!
That being said a Corsair would be a dream come true for me! I've wanted to fly this bird in DCS since the Mustang came flying in!

The D-9 variant has an Jumo in-line V-12. Now the early A models had BMW 801 radial engine.

It is abit for me, but I'll be buying both regardless just to support Leatherneck.

Also the Viggen might turn out to be a great match for the MiG-21, let's see.

As for the F4U-1, well currently it'll be very outclassed by the other props, so I'm hoping for the -4 version soon. Either that or a A6M3 or 5 Zero

Glad it is Corsair in the end! Slightly bummed that we are not getting F4U-4 (at least not now), as that was the version I wished for the most.

I don't really care how much it is outclassed versus other props, I personally want it mainly for the career ops and ground attack (and again the -4 would fit that role much better too imo).

I really want to see Cobra's announcement more now as the F4U-1 could be multiple variants and I'd like to know if the Iwo map is a standalone or will be included with the Corsair release.

I'm really interested in seeing the list of AI that LN had to create for the PTO! Hopefully they are able to get the problems with the Mig out of the way, and can get the Corsair, Iwo Jima, and the Viggen!
Yikes, my optimism is showing!

Would be Amazing to fly a Ordinance Loaded F4U of the deck of a Escort Carrier on Bombing and Strafing runs to Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima.

It will be interesting to see what there long term plans are for this bird and it may be much better suited for future DCS additions than the F4-U4. It was such a late war addition that its primary opponent was all but finished by the time it arrived on the scene. The F4U-1 was around for quite awhile with the Marines and I believe the British used them before the US Navy even bothered with it. I'm personally happy to see mid-war planes hit the fold instead of everything at their peak. Now only if the Buchon would get canceled for a mid war design ....

Oh ... someone please announce the P-38 and Hellcat so the US side is pretty much complete.
