For russia... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhuk_%28radar%29
+ Su-24M terrain following radar
+ probabbly Su-32/33/34 ?

but none of the hints by Leatherneck would indicate such plane. For russia ones there were some discussions regarding Su-17/22M4 and/or Mig-23 (MF? or MLD?) more than year ago. As far as i remember it was stated that those coldwar era ones share up to 60% of module with Mig-21, so developement would be potentiallty quick, but they were not planning those.

Latest Flankers do have a-g radar if I'm not mistaken. Besides that, Su-24 also had a complex two antenna radar system in it's nose. Don't know if Su-17 series had one, don't think so.

If second aircraft is a jet with a-g radar, it may perhaps be a Viggen too.

I would have liked the idea of two pacific warbirds from each side coming in rapid succession to be counterparts to each other and add to roster but, something with an air to ground radar would be very nice to have too. Especially if it's a Viggen or a Russian aircraft, both of which I'd be more excited for than F-14 . Don't get me wrong, I am excited for F-14 too, just not as overjoyed over it as most people are . So I really, really wonder what their two other aircraft are.

Ummm I guess some F-4 variants had some sort of a-g radar capacity did they not? I'd LOVE that, also A-6 had a radar too, which I'd also love, may be A-7 too? Hmm so many interesting possibilities

My guess is that it will probably be a Mig-23/Mig-27 Flogger.As for WWII,i want it to be the P-38 Lightning.

Well we know almost for certain that a MiG-23 is on the list don't we?

Not sure if any of them had air to ground radar... MLD? Maybe not even that.

But that right there is the thing. Releasing 3 American planes isn't exactly something for everyone is it? For every person who says "I only fly US planes," I promise you there is someone else somewhere saying the same thing about only flying Russian planes.

It's a shame ......

Well, if the Tomcat is now officially in the pipeline, they must have some kind of agreement with Grumman as we've seen with all of the other 3rd parties, a licensing deal of some sort is pretty much mandatory if you want a full fidelity aircraft.

With my Columbo hat on...

On that assumption, The A-6 Intruder was also made by Grumman and has an A-G radar, and where the F-14 caters for the tastes of the fighter jocks, the A-6 caters for the mud movers hence the 'something for everyone' statement...

Plus... I really just want one

If they have an agreement with Grumman I'm still hoping for the F4U. I would imagine they could knock out a WW2 bird quicker than a jet which would help keep the revenue coming in while they work on the Tomcat plus something else.

Hmm, in keeping with Grumman planes, another option is F-14 + F-111 + MiG-23/27. All three being swing wings would be rather epic. It also does the something for everyone bit, at least of those who frequent this forum section. It does make one wonder about all those WW2 pics though.

Edit: Correction, the main F-111's were all General Dynamics, Grumman only did modification packages for them it seems.
