He literally said "NOTHING on this yet". I think this is pretty clear
It's very very very very early in this project, if it even can already be called a project at all.

It'd be really awesome to have a dedicated AWACS aircraft instead of the pesky F10 map. And if you make the E-2, you might as well release a C-2 too. Then we'll have both our first AWACS and our first transport. Imagine doing night traps in those babies. Gosh!

Being able to transport cargo would definetly change the dynamics of the game. Instead of having infinite suplies on the airbases, we would have limited suplies that would be restocked by the cargo planes. If ED adds the possibility to fly an awacs, how would we be able to comunicate with it?? Voice chatting with the radar operator or using the menu like we do now? The voice chat doesent seem a good option because of all the trolls.

If you'd count an S-3B as a 'non-combat' aircraft I'd be up for that as well.

Well the S-3B is still mostly combat since it's used mostly for things like Sub hunting and all. I was thinking of maybe a KC-10 Extender or maybe a C-17?

If C-130 it'll be then it should include different variants, maybe even the EC-130V

It would be totally awesome to have a C-130 in DCS. It doesn't have to be the newest Juliet version, I would favour a Hotel with steam gauges. With given difficulties to simulate newest military hardware (i.e. get the approval/licence), this might be the better version to aim for.

Will you give us a sign if and when you start working on the C-130?
