I think we won’t see it before Razbam get AG radar API. And since Hornet still doesn’t have AG radar mode, no need to hold your breath.

In the first video update they did I think they mentioned a Gr.7, maybe the 9. I can't remember at the moment.

Personally I'd rather see the +. (Along with a CH-53, 46 or MV-22) to compliment their Tarawa. I'd really like to see them flesh out their work with that. It's a new element in DCS and stands to be a powerful one. But I get there are a lot of Europeans in the community who want a GR version of the Harrier too. But who knows?

They said on the forum that the issue was the AG radar.

I would vote for the II+

Nice. I'll be happy to see it when it comes out. The two airframes are practically the same. I always imagines it'd be like the Gazelle models

I believe the AV-8B was developed over the GR7 as at the time the MOD had still classified parts of the GR7 that would have been needed for the full module, I think that there was a poll at the time suggesting that most of the community would have preferred a GR7 over the AV-8B.


With the South Atlantic / Falkland Islands theatre coming I would bet we would see an FRS1 before we would see an AV-8B+. That being said I wouldn't expect to see anything until after the current focuses of finishing the AV-8B, MIG 19, F-15E, MIG 23 and of course the previously mentioned terrain are done 1st.


Also when we do see it I suspect it'll be another full module similar to if we ever see a 2000-5, whilst the airframes are similar the extra work required (at least for the systems) would justify them being separate modules. Honestly to get around this argument I kind of hope they have another look at getting a GR9 into DCS or even an FA2 (less likely, and if an FRS1 is developed would probably cause the same it should be a free module discussion).

Yes we will..
But for it to happen, some stuff have to happen as well in DCSW.
And it will be a stand alone module, it's not like is just a Night Attack version with a radar attached to it.

Well there it is. The plus is coming. In due time. Thanks for the update.

it's really interesting, I mean, really interesting, and it will be a matter of cost for me. I hope in a GOOOD discount for those have already purchased the Night Attack..

I just find it a risky trend for the next DCS modules. but it's just my2cents ( and I hope to not bother someone or create flames )

cheeerio!

Well, its not happening tomorrow, DCSW still needs to evolve until it can handle the "plus" and I'm pretty sure that by the time the Hornet is complete, we can move forward with it. 3D work is not the problem, systems are, and even AV-8BNA systems are being worked on in DSCW, hence the apparent "slow development" time.
