Anyway, it would be nice to have two more helicopters flown by the FAA besides the UH-1H and Mi-8 (Mi-171E to be exact)
Chinook can have door and tail gunners, would be great for extraction / insertion missions

...dreaming about those big helis right now.
Aerial refueling with a CH-53 from a C-130 would certainly add something new to the game.

No. With the Huey and MI8 we have 2 fully capable cargo chopper.
More interesting are the C130. Or the AC130.

Yes, CH-53. Preferably the E model, as it can lift the most (more than a Chinook). Aerial refueling, and three gunner positions. And it looks cooler. (Chinook just looks like two palm trees riding a baseball bat).

Every Helicopter is a YES!
Super Puma will go perfectly with the Gazelle. But I do fancy the CH53E too, although the mi-26 would make more sense with the current chopper offer.

I'd say a CH47A. Mainly because you'd possibly also get this as a subvariant:

Voted no, there are a lot of true combat aircraft that would be a lot more useful in DCS.
