Hell yes, been dreaming about a DCS Puma from day one, although she isn't really a big helicopter.

Chinook would be an instant buy as well. Would be interesting to see a guns a go go version, hint hint.

Basically, YES there's a huge Rotary family out there and we are desperately short of quality sim aircraft to fly. Luckily DCS is starting to change that.

But seriously, due to unique, 2-rotor design Chinook would most probably require additional physics modeling.
Other, conventional helicopters are probably less challenging to develop. Something that should be considered. Even with all of the positive feedback about interest in heavy lifters, transport helicopters are still not the main stream modules.

CH-47 or CH-53 would be nice to have. What would be really be awesome, if you made it mulitcrew right out the box, you guys could set a stander.

Carrier/Navy version of any helo and I'm on board. With all the new Naval planes and carriers seems like a natural follow on....

Yes, in favour. All of the possibilities sound interesting, especially the Puma, CH-46, Mi-26. Of course, though, for it to make much sense some major expansion on the transport systems of DCS would have to be pressed; I'm sure ED would listen and it seems realistic given how long it takes to develop a module.
Different kinds of cargos to sling, some more on-the-fly functionality on mounting and dismounting troops... it would be an idea to allow the pilot to set simple tasks for inserted troops, a little CA-style. This would make the helicopters a little combat-viable in any case, too.

Still think a Lynx would be the best addition possible

IF ED gets their act together about CA then heavy lift will be essential for moving troops and supplies.

I'm voting for the Puma or something like the Blackhawk because there is a lot of weapon and armed configuration available like the Cassiopée a configuration that can oppose the Mi-8!
