Default DCS Vietnam by Leatherneck Sims?

LNS, would you guys ever consider just focusing on one scenario like say Vietnam? DCS as it is is just a random collection of a/c on maps that don't necessarily make sense.

What about if LNS embarked on a 'we are focusing on Vietnam' plan? eg.

1. Vietnam map (covering potentially North/South Vietnam, Laos, eastern Thailand?) and the gulf
2. Vietnam era a/c - A6, F4, F105, Mig 17, Mig 19, Mig 21 (you already have the 21 as a base)

just for starters....

LNS has mentioned working on maps. I wouldn't be surprised if Vietnam is one of them.

Razbam already have the MiG19 on the road map and in development and A6 down the road.

I would love a Leatherneck F4, the LNS cockpits are second to none, an F4 done by them would be too good. If it rolled out with a Vietnam map I imagine the community would lose it's mind.

Mig-21bis did not serve in Vietnam, I don't see LNS having a particular reason to create a Vietnam map considering their announced projects either.

They do have two released planes for a what-if cold war scenario on the Baltic Sea though.

Exactly. Making a period correct MiG-21 would be almost like making another airplane. Actually, the bis version we have right now puts us further away from realistic Vietnam scenario, as I doubt any developer will spend time developing another MiG-21 in the near future.

Sigh... Leatherneck has done/doing ZERO Vietnam era birds so far, and their next planned aircraft is F4U Corsair, and they had shown signs that they will realize a Pacific theater slowly.

Razbam intents to make MiG-19 yes, but A-6 and A-7 they will make are very much post Vietnam, and that is good as more 70s and 80s or 90s scenarios are becoming a possibility. Post Vietnam versions fit nicely to this.

If someone makes an F-4 and its not a late 70s or even 80s version, it would be a shame.

I find it interesting people scream about DCS needing focus, but then turn around and ask for Vietnam. Basically, an aircraft from Vietnam era would be an "orphan module" as people like to call it.

I am happy that so far LN has created niche and interesting aircraft. MiG-21Bis and AJS 37 has been two aircraft I always wanted. While I am not that interested in Tomcat, it is an obvious superstar for a great many people, so is the Corsair.

I hope Leatherneck and other devs will keep creating interesting modules from all eras and all parts of the world, rather than caving into such requests of "do exclusively what is important (as in what personally like)!".

what?

How the hell did you come up with that conclusion? As WinterH has pointed out very well, LNS has nothing to do with Vietnam. They are working on maps, one of them already known to be Iwo Jima and another one will almost certainly be focused on Sweden. No Vietnam in sight, at least not from LNS.

Vietnam era is where I wish the main DCS focus was. A vietnam map would be amazing, and not only the map but some more planes/helos from that era.

I think Normandy is far more important for the ww2 units they really dont fit well in the current map, I would not mind seeing a Vietnam map after tho for sure whos making it who knows? I thought LNS already had a couple of maps already planned? Vietnam is not one of them, I thought a Pacific map and one for the F-14?
