I don't mind to see LHA being released after Harrier release, don't you consider this as an option? From my understanding the LHA is must for Harrier.

As soon as you are done with either an Apache or a Cobra with a co-op pit you can do whatever you want but not until either one of those are done!

More than 75% of you guys would rather fly a cargo helicopter full of rubber dog$$$$ outta Hong Kong?

Absolutely YES!
I've been hoping a developer would do a CH-53E Super Stallion for a long time. Any H-53 would be good though. I'd go for a Merlin HC3, CH-47 Chinook, Mi-26 Halo and CH-37 Mojave as well.

I'd also love to have an H-60 of any variant with a preference for the CSAR/SPECOPS variants but any one would do.

They are very low on my list of aircraft that I'd like to see in DCS, so I guess that's a "no".

With the current cadence opf new releases from ED, I can easily afford everything and my vote is skewed. So based on my observations of purchasing patterns from the people I've flown with over the years, I'd say a pure transport wouldn't be great uptake, around 50% of the people I know and they are pretty hardcore, unless ED did something to integrate scripting like Ciribob's CTLD into the game but properly with assets and visuals and logistics. However, the entire package being on a carrier...well, with the Carrier, the Harrier and relevant rotary assets, that makes a different story.

I'd like to fly choppers on the carrier and so the helicopters should really be a part of that vision, something consistent with the content and era. And in that way, I would say more people would be interested because you can leverage the carrier and it's assets as the centrepiece to the mission. I'd humbly argue the CH-46 would garner the most interest, it can also be used in scenarios back to Vietnam and has a large following as well as being unique in many aspects. The CH-53 looks hellishly complex to do, although I can see amid air refuelling being of interest!
