I definitely would absolutely love to see this aircraft. For all of the reasons stated by the OP, and the reasons described by the guy who suggested that Heatblur would be the perfect candidate. However, the biggest reason for me is the game-play it could generate. Could you imagine penetrating low level, supersonic, at sea level, using your TFR at 200ft above the deck, just to smash a target with pinpoint precision and get the heck out of dodge while being chased down (attempted chasing). It would bring so much OCA/precision strike action to the game that is currently very lacking. I say go for it! I'd commit $1000USD to it's development without blinking.

You mean like exactly what the AJS 37 already does?

Not that I do not like the idea of the F-111 in the game, actually I would be quite happy to see it. But its mission is not new to DCS.

Well, it doesn't have TFR, but all that does is remove the pilot from the equation :p Tornado & presumably F-111 have somewhat more sophisticated radar than the Viggen, might be worth it for the right mission.

I'd buy this module for sure, especially if it was made by Heatblur to F14 standards.

It would be nice to have an electronic warfare plane in DCS. But that would need the whole Jamming thing reworked.

Meh. Its an interesting aircraft if you're into analog cockpits and vietnam and cold war era tech. If DCS or a 3rd party ever did model this, you would absolutely want the F model. It was the only one with PGM capability once they added the Pave Tack Pod back in the 80s.

To make this an effective DCS module, ED or whoever would have to model both the pilot and WSO seats and functions as well as implementing a good ground mapping radar system to make this work. The WSO was everything on the aircraft in terms of finding and attacking targets and IIRC there is no transfer of control of the radar and pave tack pod to the pilot like you would have in the Strike Eagle or similar. And even though the F-model had the Pave Tack pod, its primary means of navigation and attack was still the radar.
