Here is simple as well
Weighting (as with the LHA idea) to create some heavy choppers, like CH-53E Super Stallion, or the Chinook or Maybe the Puma (All under RAZBAM of course..hehe), keep in mind there is no time frame for this, just would like to know what´s your opinion on this subject, since we are very busy as it is with our current projects, but if there is a sparkling interest, we might explore our options

AIs on the deck? why not? Depending on the complexity of this LHA (how it works and etc) I would pay for it.

IMHO the LHA should be FREE if you buy the Harrier, if not, you would have to buy it separately. I would say no more than $19.99.

I consider these projects very risky, since there is little to no combat performed by these aircraft, they are basically heavy lifters

Prowler,

I think more now then ever Heavy lift aircraft are needed for DCS, specially with Blue Flag and Open Conflict. The integration of the logistics part in Blue Flag just calls for a heavy lifter. I am a huge Heli fan and would love something else to fly. Maybe like a UH-60.....

Seeing as DCS is obviously moving away from being a "Pure" combat sim, I believe this sentiment is unfounded. I mean seriously, when DCS: Huey was announced I checked the calendar to see if it was April 1st. Now, I find myself hoping in a Huey when I just wanna "Fly" around for a bit.

There are PLENTY of uses in DCS for the Chinook and CH-53. The Chinook is the CURRENT prime Heavy lift helicopter for both the Army and Navy / Marines. capable of moving significant amounts of personnel and cargo in tactical environment. Its Military missions are exactly the same as the Mi-8 and their civilian uses for fire fighting and construction are numerous...so if one can exist, the other can exist just as easily.

The MH/CH-53 was used by all three services prior to its retirement particularly during the Vietnam war. Combat Search and Rescue relied heavily on the "Jolly Green Giants" and judging from the number of Medal of Honor recipients from the Search and Rescue community, I'd say they have seen plenty of combat. Combined these facts with with Special Ops Pave Low missions of the 80s and 90s and I'd say there is plenty of justification for BOTH the Jolly Green and Chinook in DCS.

Agreed!

-----------

Prowler, how complex would the LHA be?

The thing is, we can´t tie the Harrier release to a LHA release, it will simply slow things down and add more complexity to an already extremely complex module.
As for how complex it would be, i still can´t say, just scratching the surface here, but i think it should be practical rather than complex (if you catch my drift)
As for pricing, of course it would not be in the same figures as any aircraft

Yes, the CH-53 is my favorite heavy heli.
