F/A-18 for all-round getting the job done.
Mi-8 for rotor fun
L-39 just to enjoy flying (or Yak 52 or Mustang for something a bit slower)

If the A-10C were the only module, I’d be perfectly happy.

Fair has nothing to do with it! AV-8B is the most challenging fixed wing mod in DCS. F-5E is easiest to learn , and best for tactics training and fast jet training in DCS. A-4E-C also as F-5E but A-4E-C is standard flight model, and simplified systems. Has no communications, no wingman, no ECM, no EO bombing system of any kind, primitive NAV and AG attack radar, no NVG, and 3/4 of cockpit functions are not implemented. But still fun as hell. Both F-5E and A-4E-C are surprisingly accurate AG platforms for unguided bombs and rocket delivery, despite lacking CCIP pipper, and being limited to Depressed Sight Line. Set MIL depression, for speed, altitude, and slant distance, then release when time is right. Just like learning Kentucky windage shooting from your granpa in Appalachia.

Pretty much everytime I fire up DCS I hop in the Mi-8, or UH-1. Even if I just do some takeoffs and landings, and then spend the rest of the day flying something else.

Sorry . Forever taken by A-4. A-4 was in service for 50 years. Su-25 will probably also push that. Gen 4.5 aircraft are expected to serve 30-40. Gen 5 is for 50. In a century , aircraft airframes will be last centuries, only weapons and avionics , and procedures will change. Kind of like Star Wars, where space-craft and air vehicles are centuries and millenia old. Life converging with fiction.

I don't fly it in MP yet, but once as she gets closer to being feature complete I see myself spending a lot of time in the Bug, and will likely spend a lot of time in the F-16CJ when we get it.

The bug just has all the delivery methods you can want, The viper will carry less, but also will have all the delivery methods you can want.

But this question is impossible, the Tomcat and the JF-17 are going to get some love from this virtual flyboy too.

But once we get the data link in the Hornet it's probably where I'm going to be spending most of my time when I have the vr headset on, at least until we get the F-16CJ
