It won't be an easy thing to create, though I guess most of the systems and performance data isn't as difficult to acquire than say a modern fighter jet.

Let's see if it is a viable project. I guess it is depending on a few things that are not in DCS, yet.
If these turn out to be showstoppers, well we have to live with that.

If they do it in the end it is a good thing, as it will be unique in DCS and attract a whole bunch of people more into biggies plus a fair share of current DCS addicts.

But it is a long road, so we on the customer side need patience.

Too early for a C-130 thread?

Not a problem at all. I just rely on cryotechnology and freeze myself until it is there to wake up just in time.

Would be referring to the light observation and Forward air control [FAC] variants. Any aircraft could be considered combat type depending on how its equipped. Such as the C-130, its a cargo plane til l you put the big guns on.
