Problem is, tu-16 is a strategic bomber....doesn't work so well for our maps which are more suited for tactical bombers. Anyway, I imagine a typical strategic bomber mission being as excited as a typical airliner in xplane as far as gameplay goes (ie just slightly more engaging than watching paint dry) . Interesting airplanes don't necessarily make good sims.
As always, that's my opinion- I understand others likely feel different. Case in point: there's a truck driving simulator, with Washington state DLC. The steam page shows gameplay of driving a truck south on I-5 out of Seattle, my exact commute. My reaction was: great, that's just what I need, after sitting in rush hour traffic I can come home, fire up the computer, and reenact that same commute again! Fun!, As awful as it sounds to me, it's sold more than a few copies

I thought about what is makes sense in DCS scenario, would be interesting to fly, not already being done by others (AFAIK) and no MFCDs :

MiG-25 Who doesn't want to go Mach 2.8 and fire telegraph pole sized missiles?

Panavia Tornado IDS Iconic cold war attack jet for those who like to get low and fast

Saab J-35 Draken Amazing aircraft, exotic Swedish take on 2nd gen fighter interceptor

Mirage III - MiG-21 contemporary, Middle East scenarios, Falkland...

F-104 Starfighter - main NATO fighter before F-16, main antagonist to MiG-21

Su-22 Not winning any beauty contests but is an important aircraft historically

Sepecat Jaguar Not winning any beauty contests either, counterpart to Su-22

I initially thought Deka was going to make only Chinese aircraft. Nonetheless I'm happy if they are making other aircraft too.

IMO a good suggestion would be the Sepecat Jaguar (hopefully Darin II or III specs) as this is operated mainly by Indian Air Force to this day and is highly upgraded. It would make for an excellent attack aircraft plus be advanced enough to fit in a modern day scenario!

You can see the radar display right on the first photo you attached It's the thing that looks like a big binocular you can look into.

How would an IL-28 work in DCS as a module? I mean if it were made it would be the first pure dedicated bomber in DCS wouldn't it? If it's done then do you think it could open the possibility to a B-52 in the future?

I think the SU15 would be a really cool jet to do would love to see it in the game.

Thanks! I’m sure it calculates slant range and altitude? I wonder if it provided any kind of CCIP/CCRP, one article I read said it could be used in bad weather for blind bombing.

Also read that someone ejected 31 times so they could fly it up and put it on autopilot before “leaving” the plane so it could be used as a target drone. Target tugs would be cool for guns training

Just out of curiosity, would Deka at any point in the future consider making maps?
