Buts that's exactly what i was pointing at.


Hence why i said it one one of the reasons, it shouldn't compare the two designs different dates along with the fact they were meant different attack purposes.

Yes, I went back and re-read what you wrote. I misread and thought you were saying that Frog was older....my mistake!!

Why would you use introduction year vs. first flight?

The real numbers should have been 1963 vs. 1981.

It depends on the variant in question too. A6E which is being considered went into service around 1971, though if were getting a later model with its System and Weapons improvement program itl turn it into a early 80s bird.

You're thinking of the TRAM, which added the chin pod with the FLIR and laser. That was introduced in 1979. The SWIP was introduced in the early 1990s (just after ODS I believe), whih seems like such a waste since the bird was retired a few years later.

I'm dying for the A-6 as well. I'd love to see a SWIP or TRAM; the SWIP has some pretty nice nav gear and a very good standoff capability to go with the all weather attack role.

It depends on my mood.

My personal wishlist shifts constantly.

TBH there too many aircraft im interested to really fit into a mere 4-5 AC wishlist. and even then depending on my mood they shift constantly around, though I will admit F/A18C, and F16C are probably my top two.

F-111F/C, Su-24M, A-6E, Su-34, F-15E, F-16A, Su-17, Jaguar, MiG-27K, Tornado IDS, ADV, A-7E/D, and that's before helicopters. No F-16C since the F/A-18 does literally everything it can
Well, at least a couple are coming. I remember seeing somewhere somebody saying that the F/A-18, A-10C, and F-14 would probably the most purchased modules
When RAZBAM's F-15E strolls in pending F/A-18C and status of their other stuff that'll probably change. I'll still buy as much as I can without going broke or forgetting to change my bike's oil XD
