Default Corsair time frame?

I'm new to DCS, so forgive me if this is in the wrong spot, as I don't see a specific section/post for discussing the Corsair.

I've been thinking about purchasing a WWII module, specifically the Mustang, but since reading about the upcoming Corsair, I decided I'd much rather have it than the Mustang. There's always the TF-51D to scratch my warbird itch until the Corsair comes out.

How long do announced modules usually take to appear in the game? Being new, I have a lot to keep me busy until this comes out, but a general time frame would be nice (six months, a year, or more).

Magnitude gave a presentation of the aircraft back in December (see https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=256985), but they didn't show either its cockpit nor any external closeups, so I'd guess that it was still at least 6 months away at the time and I hope that Magnitude is trying their best to have it released before the mid-year Holidays .. but just a guess.

If I were on your place, I'd purchase the Mustang to take advantage of its current low price .. if you can spare the Money, I would also purchase Normandy to operate the aircraft on a more appropiate scenery.

If you intend to do one of the P-51 paid Campaigns, then consider also the WW2 Assets Pack, as it is needed for those Campaigns.

Or do what I'm doing and mess around on p3d until it comes out.

Right now I'm putting myself through ground school, and as soon as I get paid I'm starting primary on the N2S Stearman from Golden Age Simulations. After that I cant decide if I want to fly the BT-13 for basic, or just skip to the A2A T6 Texan. The BT-13 I found is old and kind of shitty graphics wise.

Theres tons to learn, tons of fantastic quality aircraft, and if you look around you can find alot of the original course materials to aid you in you training.

But I'm a turbo nerd about this stuff so....lol

OR.....you could just wait a couple of weeks and buy the JUG. At least that might scratch your PW R2800 itch. I'd get thw Normandy map and WWII assets pack as Rudel mentioned.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I'm more interested in the Pacific Theater than the European, and the Corsair is my favorite WWII fighter (watched too much Baa Baa Black Sheep as a kid), but the Pacific map and Corsair seem to be a ways off.

I was not aware a P-47 was coming to DCS. I just read some posts about it, and that is a far more interesting plane than the Mustang. I guess I need to decide if I grab the Mustang for a sweet price, or wait for the Jug. I'll give the Mustang a try next week with the free trial and decide then.

I'll definitely grab Normandy and the Assets pack while the sale is on, though, as getting the P-47 when it comes out is a certainty.

"OR.....you could just wait a couple of weeks "

Where have you heard that timeframe? I am about to hit the buy button while the Harrier is on sale. I just flew it for free and it's great.
But, I do not have unlimited simming money as some people seem to. If that two weeks is true, I'll wait.
Just wondering if you know that for a fact. If you're just guessing, I'll pick up the jump-jet.

Once upon a time, Matt Wagner, from ED, made the mistake of promising the delivery of some item "in two more weeks" ... of course that timeframe was not met and it originated an insiders joke, that has been repeated so many times that currently isn't funny at all. Buy the Harrier, it's a really enjoyable aircraft in spite of a few bugs and items still not finished.
