Default We need the D Variant

Would love to see the D model coming after the A. The Tomcat is by far my favorite module to fly so far.

As much as I, and i m sure many more people as well, would like to get the D (giggidy), it's unlikely to happend. And if it does, it would require a lot of systems being at least partially redone, like the sparrowhawk hud, the newer radar, etc.

It's easier to make the A and the B, than the B and the D.
Honestly, i m happy we're getting 2 variants in the 1st place, and while the D would be nice to have, i think the B manages just fine, and the A will offer a lot more in mission making capabilities, as well as present a challange to a lot of expierienced people.

TL;DR: Probably not gonna happend, even tho a lot of people would love it

Meh; there were only like 40 -Ds ever made. I'd rather developers focus on more widely-used aircraft, or DCS will just become Digital Experimental Combat Simulator.

55. It got a good bit of combat use there in the last 8-10 years. I'd love to see it, but I understand why they are not planning on it.

But whats next, the Bell X1? TSR2? XB70? If they are going to launch a project based on such a few number of aircraft built, the sky is presumably the limit.


I dont get the fetish for the D, I really dont. It wasnt THAT much more capable than the B, other than the flight control system. And I believe they bolted that onto A models late in its life anyway.


Ive got the Tomcat I want. The only other Tomcat I would want is the Tomcat 21, and I blame Dick Cheney not Heatblur for that particular decision.


No disrespect to anyone wanting a D btw. I just dont understand it.
