Did you see this version? It is similar in concept but far different manufacturing and composite materials, new wing design. Cockpit is what I liked most! Very different.

I would love a AN-2 in DCS..!
The first time I saw one for real was during my line training as a new hire first officer. As we rolled down the runway at Krakow, there were some 5 or 6 AN-2 lined up on holding at a halfway intersection. I got so mesmerized that I forgot to call V1 and rotate...
The captain wrote ”No sightseeing during take off! Focus!” in my training log :-D

Would be cool to drop paratroopers and special forces in DCS.

I would love to buy a nice DCS version of the AN-2 (with western instruments please ).

Airdrop missions is something vital to not only combat situations, but also for humanitarian missions. I do not remember any simulation that had this option. DCS could be a nice platform for this kind of missions, with Hercules, Buffallos, Casas, An-26s and all sort of cool military transport planes.

The An-2 being such a unique aircraft, given that it´s "already there" for P3D, would be a smart move.

Dropping paratroopers could be a new mission type as well, perhaps even tie in with CA

I dont know how many countries used an2 for that, but cuba did for sure

Having the An-2 in DCS would be great.

Do OctopusG developers have any plans for another add-on at all, or will they be a ''one-hit wonder''?

While Cuba may have used it for paratrooper deployment, I'd imagine that most operators would have used it for special forces deployment in one way or another. After all, it's an incredibly popular workhorse in general aviation, so that would make for a fantastic means to infiltrate and deploy. Also, its relatively smaller size, rugged construction,and excellent STOL capabilities means it could have been used to pick up small teams or agents in a similar manner as the Lysander in WWII.

Don't forget, in addition to using it to spray your dcs crops, it served as an unwieldy bomber/ gunship
