Even as a payable add on
I dont mean this in a bad way at all, im just curious because I have seen others asking for a JA37. Why would you want a JA37 before a J35 Draken? Sure I would like all the SAAB aircraft and the Viggen is the most awsome one but for me the obvius choice would be the J35. It could be fully simulated because as far as I know its not classified, it served with more airforces, we are already blessed with a version of the Viggen and it would also have a highly interesting (read unforgiving) flightmodel.
It could also have a cool new feature for DCS if they would like to model it, the most early version of a datalink, the so called "command tape". Like I said, Im just curious since I would not take a FC3-level JA37 instead of a full fidelity J35 if I was given the choice.

The A-6 has my vote but from the Swedish arsenal it'd have to be the Draken. Quirky, something new, served with Finland which also has the MiG-21bis in game, and it looks absolutely stunning.

True. Well said.

I believe that Heatblur should take as much time deems necessary I just hope that from what they have learned from the development of the Tomcat and the creation of new technologies that can be applied to different aircraft they can shorten that time.
The truth is that as a community we are constantly wishing for new aircraft. That is the whole point of this thread. Each of us suggests or speculates which plane should be or may be next although we haven't even gotten the Tomcat yet.
I think it's important to realise the difficulty of creating a new module but also have hopes and visions for this community.
I am sure that Heatblur would have preferred to have been able to release the Tomcat in 2017. I am not saying that what Heatblur has decided is right or wrong I am just wishing then the best.

I would love Draken too, I am suggesting JA-37 since the 3D assets for the exterior and interior could be reused... also lot of systems can be reused.... so it wouldn't be a big effort to get us JA-37... and I would love fighting in it...

JA37 has some classified systems on it that were used on the gripen as well so looks unlikely we’ll be getting it anytime soon.

BVR and 30 mm Oerlikon, even AIM-120 if we would get a JA-37D.

If given the choise between a full fidelity J-35 and a FC3 JA-37 I would pick the 35.

For those that think the 3D model of the JA-37 would be identical to the AJ-37, it's not, the JA is longer and have a (slightly) different tail, plus probably a lot of other minor differences.

Yes, that why I was hoping at least for the 1979 version without the updates.... Have a SkyFlash and A-A radar would bring enough new capability to the Viggen...

Phweee... just waded through 64 pages of this thread. If that isn't tribute to the work that Heatblur does, I don't know what is.


PS: Draken for the win.
