Default Hellcat or Corsair?

I recall LN announcing somewhere that the Corsair was in the pipeline for DCS. I also did see a pic of the Hellcat in the background on the LN website.

Which of these two are in the works and how far have they come if they are?

Background art on the LN website is just background art. The F-4 for example is a render of past work a team member did for another dev team for FSX iirc. They've never said they're doing a Hellcat.

Corsair last we heard was on hold while they were working on other projects (Viggen and F-14). I'd imagine they'll pick it up again soon.

The viggen is out already . Its a finished project, save for the Map they have planned for it, and of course mandatory bug crunching of a new release.

Otherwise it seems they are focused soley on the F14.

Corsair is unfortunate remnant of "Pacific theatre" set of aircraft we had plans to develop 3 years ago.
It was mostly me who was working on it since I had to make some research to prepare myself and a tem for large Pacific project (many human and AI planes, ships, ground units, and a map) and I needed single-piston-engine aircraft. Corsair was good enough for that purpose, since other aircraft had no finished-functional 3d model.

NOTE: even the Corsair hadn't finished 3d model, but it was looking good enough.

Corsair was in a good shape back in 2015 and beginning of 2016, but then mostly abandoned due to our internal problems.

I felt bad about that aircraft, having a feeling it will go down the drain eventually, so we made a deal to take it, giving some of our rights in return.

I hope it will be well done and accepted once we shift our focus to it again. It's very interesting aircraft. The most impressive is it's size and power, at least to me.

Looking forward to when you can give her some love again. Love to fly her! Thanks for the insight.

Dolphin, out of curiosity, are loadouts for the Corsair decided on yet, if so, does it have Tiny Tim rockets for example.

We did not get to the point of weapons implementation, apart from internal guns. Once we restart development, we will equip the Corsair with everything it historically had - provided we can implement it.

Best wishes during this transition and I certainly hope everything goes well with the corsair development! Definitely a day one purchase for me!
