Tiger would be nice, but just way too modern compared what we have otherwise, and outside of the "Cold War era" theme.

You forgot the most obvious... It is simply classified. The same would be true for the NH-90.

To get a close to real FM I would vote for the Dauphin. This baby is used around the world and even in civil air rescue stations. I think it should be possible to get some nice material (Cockpit photos, pilot interviews, maybe FM diagrams...) for this helicopter.

To be honest, even after one studio dropped the project, my dream is flying the Apache together with a buddy in multicrew.

OH-58 Kiowa. Can work together with A-10.
Would be a great team!

Concerning sales one would benefit from the other...

Isn't NH-90 announced by VEAO?

Panther mentioned a few posts earlier is a military variant of the Dauphin.

VEAO dropped all the helicopters for the moment. Some group took over from them, so we'll have to wait for their announcement.

The NH-90 was dropped to my information. I love new gadgets but let's be honest, the FM and avionics would not be more than an educated guess or advertising. No military manufacturer would give his new and most precious data away. (Much to my regret you can see that even the AH-64A is kept under such restrictive information policy that a third party developer decided to make a training module for the army without the chance of creating a DCS module. Unlike ED who managed it to create a "public" A-10C Version, this studio signed a NDA which won't allow use of their gained knowledge about the Apache.)

The Panther (or military Dauphin) would be interesting. There are so many variants (of the Dauphin) from different manufacturers that there simply must be some kind of reliable information regarding the FM.

But it's not an Airbus chopper...

Some group took over the NH90 - I wonder who would fit that bill? Already involved in helicopter modules, working towards clearance from Airbus industries, not in competition directly with VEAO...

I have no idea who that might be, or what the unannounced 3rd helicopter might be!
