I'd favour an F.6

Mainly because I have pilots notes, manuals etc for the F.6

Give over, its a F.53 we want with ground attack

I have the pilot's notes and the operating data and handling manual for the F.53 … T.55 P1A P1B F.1 F.1A F.2 F.3 F.6 T.Mk.4 T.Mk.5
Plus a few others.

A bit of a ugly duckling and somewhat limited. But it flies, so will end up a likely purchase at some stage. Seems even a novice can get airborne, landing might be a bit more tricky.

Do the export versions have the datalink and Computer Red though?

Not that datalink was ever used operationally it's still rather cool. I'd LOVE to do a datalinked GCI in DCS

Well, the mig-23 Lazur data link/GCI system is at least on a very general level "similar" so they might leverage that. Supposedly the mig-23 is supposed to have that per overstratos if they can figure out a way to implement it in DCS.

The Lightning is one of my favourite jets, watching it go vertical at the end of the runway, is a treasured memory... I look forward to this module... do it well lads, do it well

I never got to see one fly IRL. Would have loved to.
