Nothing would make me happier than to see HB do the Tonka, please Universe... make it happen!
Who needs to dance if you can spAMRAAM with a plane that is silimarly cool and iconic as the Tomcat?

Being from Germany, I'd absolutely love to have the British GR.4 as I see it as the pinnacle of the PA.200 family. I mean, just imagine satisfying the need you feel, down low at 200ft, popping up and lobbing all those shiny little Brimstones at your targets with their millimetre wave guidance and being outta there as quickly as you came in... who needs an AH-64D anymore if you can have this?

The GR.4 is the pinnacle? The GR.4 was put into service in the 90s. I don't know how much it got improved since then.

The german ASSTA 3.1 on the other hand has been put into service in 2016 and has all new avionics:

Don't aim too modern, guys, this is beyond F-14D level.
A 1980ies GR.1 or IDS would be perfectly fine, maybe the first british version that could carry ALARMs or the german Marine (= Navy) version that was Kormoran-ASM- and basic-HARM-capable.
Anything beyond that like e.g. ECR is too classified and out of the current scope of DCS-capabilities and -possibilities.
Imagine doing 550 KIAS at 200 FT GND in IMC, with terrain-following autopilot in hardride mode, deep inside enemy territory, while the backseater id's the target bridge on the A/G radar.

If we get a Tornado for DCS it will most probably be the the original Cold War variant, which has the advantage that there are pretty much no differences between the 3 Tornado nations. The differences came later as everyone upgraded their Tornados on their own.

Yeah another vote for the Tornado here. Also a nice interview with a pilot in this video.

Yeah, this and differences shouldn't be too hard to implement for each variant

Its my dream module just imagine having one in DCS especially if heatblur made it. Sorry I dont mean to derail thread but how is the virpil base with the warthog? I am thinking of doing the same thing.

The biggest issue with the Tonka is going to be getting declassified info about it. European countries and especially the UK are very tight lipped when it comes to military aircraft and systems. So you’re going to be looking at an original IDS or GR1, which pretty much had dumb bombs, JP233 and could carry paveways but didn’t have its own laser to self designate with afaik.
