For UK fast jets the list is short. Sadly it is even shorter for British multi-role type with competitive air-air. Below is my wish list in order of desirability. Top is #1 priority for me.
Module must be PFM and ASM or as close as possible for developer.

0. Eurofighter Typhoon* , but it is not a realistic expectation.

1. PANAVIA Tornado GR4
2. Avionics and equipment MOD to DCS: AV-8B/NA to DCS: BAE Harrier GR7/9 with radar and air-air weapons.
3. F-4K RN FAA variant with RAF liveries. With HMS Hermes or any Centaur class CV angled deck CATOBAR. https://www.bing.com/images/search?v...=0&eim=0,1,2,6
F-4J, F-4M variants.

4 .SEPECAT Jaguar
5. Hawker Hunter
6. Blackburn Buccaneer
7. BE Lightning
8. PANAVIA Tornado F2 ADV

Expansion set AI aircraft with SFM
V-Bombers, Victor tanker variant, Tristar 500 K.1/KC.1 tanker, Fairey Gannet AWACS , Nimrod MR2, BAE Canberra, SeaKing HAR 3, Westland Wessex

If we are fortunate to have Hawker Hunter developed for our enjoyment, developer should consider creating African theater map . Concentrating on Southern Africa with Bush Wars of 1960'-1980's

I am a fan of Cold War fighters. The Hunter was really successful and served with a lot of air forces over a long period of time, so it is a great choice. But for me, the classic British aircraft of the Cold War are the Lightning and the Buccaneer. I would like to see these two in DCS World as much as the USAF Century Series.

I agree on Buc , respectfully less agree on BE Lightning. I have no objection to it, it did serve in twilight of CW 1.0 until 1988. Its just that it is a point defense interceptor, like early MIG-21. No AG and its almost purely an energy fighter in ACM.. Buc would be fun fun fun, even funner if we can get HMS Ark Royal prior to VSTOL rampt conversion. I lament this on part of RN FAA. Ramp is a fine idea, and adding to Centaur class CVA's is brilliant. Not so brilliant is ripping angled deck CATOBAR landing area of flight deck. It should have been retained, with single waist cats, and 4 wire arresting gear.

It would be cool if we can get Baltic/Central Europe and North Sea maps. ED should also re-introduce LockON Crimea map to Georgia/Caucasus theater.
I use Normandy map as a pseudo-Baltic op area. I bought Persian Gulf, and no regrets. Great map. But it's boring on Arabian side. Flat and mono color sand. Iranian side is more interesting terrain variation. Khassab region Gulf Of Oman is alright.
I am curious if 8 MK-84s are delivered to base of Burj Khalifa, will it collapse. Assuming that PG buildings have collapse effect due to damage programmed into them.
Great now that I posted this, I suppose FBI JTTF will pay me a visit.

I would love Jaguar and Tornado GR or IDS variants. Buccaneer looks uuuuhhh... let's just say not glamorous, but would be quite interesting to have as well.

There are other British aircraft I would be less interested in, but still would get at some point like:
- Lightning
- I have an odd affection for Folland Gnat, but I know that wouldn't be the most popular thing to have
- I'd love if the Hawk could return in some way

I'd be totally up for a Tornado Gr1, flexible mud mover with a large variety of weapons plus Terrain Following Radar which would be awesome fun in DCS. You'd probably need an AI back seater like the F14, but a lot of dev work has already been done in this direction. Plus the Gr1 has been out of service for quite some time so more chance of getting unclassified data..
