Well I would rather see them come out with an A-6 as they intend to assuming they can get the proper licenses & approval from ED.

I think that the Intruder is pretty damn Iconic.


While the F-117 is extremely limited in scope the A-6(E at least) has a wide variety of weapons to choose from:
Mk 82
Mk 83
Mk 84
Mk 20 Rockeye II
Mk 4 Mod 0 20 mm gun pod
GPU-5/A 30 mm gun pod
Zuni rockets
AGM-62 Walleye TV-guided bomb
AGM-65 Maverick
AGM-78 Anti-Radar Missile
AGM-84 Harpoon
AGM-84E SLAM
AGM-88 HARM
AGM-123 Skipper (A GBU-16 but with a rocket attached)
AIM-9 Sidewinder
ADM-141 TALD decoy
Mk 60 Captor Mines

A-6 would make the naval strike package open up for many conflicts from Vietnam era too Gulf War.


Maybe an EA add on later.

Isn't the A-6 nearly a foregone conclusion at this stage though?


I'd been treating this thread as a 'what after the Intruder' thread since that A-6 AI reveal. Am I the only one doing this?

While there may be very little doubt that Heatblur are going to make the Intruder it might not be their next module.

I wouldn't turn my nose up at an AWACS module that interfaces within the game. Such as a Red Flag exercise where you coordinate the aircraft on a certain side. I remember a certain combat flight sim from the 90's dabbling in this.
