IIRC, it was a 2 seater sweep wing figher bomber, but mainly did bombing and SEAD

correct?

Honestly, we could really use some high fidelity russian stuff from the 4th gen. I would love a complex Mig29 or Su 27, or a mig 25 or a 31... on MP servers, there really isn't good for the red side

An A6 with a Vietnam map would rock

An A-6 with no map would also be fun

And A-6 would be awesome, but if it is a post-Vietnam version in my opinion.

I'd like A-6E TRAM or SWIP instead of how it was in 'Nam. It would also work very well with 70s to 90s modules that are getting more and more diverse in DCS.

Aside from the A-6 and F-14D, I'd love to see Heatblur apply its expertise to an Eastern Bloc aircraft like the MiG-25PD or the MiG-27K eventually.

Guys what's up with the A-6 Its not super-sonic and it sweeps it's wings in wrong direction. Even putting this aside, it's biggest problem is that it's name is spelled out differently then "T O R N A D O"

Personally I'd like the A-6 for two reasons: It's the perfect partner for the f-14 when setting up large scale multi-unit missions, and with the detailed carrier module coming up I want as many carrier capable aircraft as possible.

So, C-2 Greyhound anyone?

On a more serious note, on its own merits, I'd prefer a Tornado over the A-6E by far (a consequence of playing DI's sim a lot), but I have to agree that it would be nicer to have the A-6E (and A-7E) simulated along with the Tomcat as soon as possible with the carriers and crews and what not.

There is the Hornet, but it kind of sticks out with being overly digital and its multi-role capabilities. The A-6E being defenseless makes for a better mix with the Tomcat.

I think it's safe to say that if they were to model the Intruder, then it's almost a foregone conclusion that it would be post Vietnam in order for it to fit in with the era of their F-14(s).

What's not serious about a C-2? I want one.
