What can that be?

- Swing-wing flight model
- Jester and two seat
- An advanced radar modeling (which they also have under their belt with custom developed air to ground radar in the Viggen)

These make a few aircraft possible candidates, like Tornado, F-111, perhaps Su-24 or Su-17, but I'm afraid those two aren't too likely .
Add thrust reverse (Viggen) to the list and you pretty much have the Tornado

DCS Panavia Tornado (IDS) really needs to be a thing!

These 3 reasons are why I'm (half) expecting a Tornado. The biggest reason being their experience with swing-wings. I've heard it said that getting the FM just right on an aircraft with variable geometry can be notoriously difficult. Not to mention that they also have extensive experience perfecting multi-crew, as well as not starting from scratch with the radar they would need to emulate. It's not hard to imagine them quietly perfecting the TFR the Tornado uses on the side.


Of course, I don't work for or with Heatblur and this is all conjecture, so my speculations could be very wrong. They could very well be making an Intruder for us to play with alongside their F-14. That too, would make sense, since they're known to be building a Forrestal class carrier, and the A-6 (also being a Grumman production) would dovetail rather nicely with a Tomcat. Furthermore, they've shown us pictures of the AI they're working on, so we know for a fact that they at least have an external model in production.

I would prefer a Tornado, as I've always wanted to try out the "high-speed dash under the radar at low level, at night, and in all types of weather scenario", but an Intruder would still be pretty sexy.

I would do very bad things for a Heatblur Tornado GR.1/IDS

If it's the F-111 I hope to god it's the D or F cause I do NOT want to do manual navigation and targeting calculations for my pilot!

That would also be an acceptable substitute. Though I think it would be great to see an EF-111 if at all possible.

It's not possible, as DCS itself lacks a thorough EW simulation.

All the ruski secrecy stuff aside the SU24 is a flight sim dream. Precision strike, SEAD, antiship,stand-off you name it you got it. Much more capable that the other options discussed here. One can only wish...
