a heavy lifter has appropriate if the cargo and infantry deployments on dcs world has better improvement and follow to a next steep into DCS: World (at leveo similar of ARMA), but that is black spot.

Meanwhile, a rotund Yes (and I add not only heavy lifters / transport helos, add to the list all the naval ASW/AsUW helos)

FWIW Razbam I was a Flight Engineer in CH-47Ds, and should be able to share a lot of info and materials on the chopper should Razbam ever decide to move forward. The CH-47D (Not F) is prettymuch totally declassified and would fit very well with the other available technology in DCS. It can be armed with 3 gunners (M240H, M-134A, M2 .50) and has a useful hook load of about 26,000 lbs, so you would need to expand on the sling loading in the sim to actually being able to life something like a Humvee to be able to fully realize the Chinhooks capability. I think a cargo chopper in DCS could be a lot of fun if the cargo functions were expanded, such as expanded troop transport systems.

If you ever did do a CH-47, including the ACH-47A, also know as the Guns-a-go-go Chinooks would be incredible. Those choppers are legendary in the Chinook community. They were four armored and very heavily armed Chinook Gunships that served in Vietnam. While making only those variety as a module might be a little too oddball, including them in the CH-47 module would be EPIC!

If you ever have any interest in this I would be glad to help out however possible- just shoot me a PM!

As much I would love to see the CH-53 or UH-60, EC725/H225M (but not so much CH-47 or any other successor of Piasecki's flying banana) the question is what would be their application in DCS.
Today missions are designed in away that Mi-8 capability to lift higher weights and take more soldiers on board does not matter compared to Huey. To justify the heavy lifters, first there should be a content and backbone in DCS that would allow to benefit from their increased size and provide applications which would bring more tasks than only flying the module.

I'd love to see big helicopters in dcs, there is a massive gap in the sim that they could fill in my opinion. CH-53, chinook or UH 60 would be my favourite but I'd buy any to be honest!

As much as I am enjoying the CTLD script I do agree that realistic cargo weight and the balance of the cargo should be a factor. Right now we have Huey's flying around fully armed and carrying a reinforced M-1 tank platoon inside it plus a simulated sling load TOW HMMWV... of which it could pick up none of in real life. ED is not there yet, that is true, but if we say no to an aircraft module simply because all of the functionality of cargo lifting is not yet included we are doing ourselves a disservice. If cargo helicopters or planes are not in the game there is no need to improve those aspects of the game. I'm thinking of it as the more cargo/transport aircraft we have the greater chance that there will be greater focus to include that kind of content.

My thoughts on implementing internal cargo would be similar to how the weapons loadouts for the combat aircraft are handled. Simply have a cargo menu with a layout of the aircrafts cargo bay and have the space taken up by selectable loads with realistic weight added exactly as it is selected and placed in the aircraft just like how weapons are chosen now. For sling loading I just wish ED would fix what they have already done... I miss MP sling loading.

If you build it they will come.

I know lots of people who would love to fly any chopper and if it was a heavy lift bird that would be even sweeter. Jolly Green Giant would fit in well with the 229th although any variant of the CH-53 would be superb
