Oh and yeah why not a CH47 (seriously as long as it has rotors it's fine)
Control is an illusion which usually shatters at the least expected moment.
Gazelle Mini-gun version is endorphins with rotors. See above.

I, personally, would not be all that excited by a Chinook module. However, from a developer standpoint, even an experience rotorcraft dev, I suspect it would be a completely new challenge. Perhaps it will show up one day but I am thinking that the flight dynamics of such an aircraft would entail a lot of ground breaking work as compared to any existing helicopter.

It has the potential to really enhance ctld. Firstly, it is one of, if not the fastest helicopter in service. Secondly, it could potentially haul more stuff if allowed. Imagine setting up a Hawk or Kub at a distant location at twice the speed and half the trips!

AND... it would be very interesting to dodge and evade ground threats with it's speed and flight dynamics.

+1 c-47 Chinook would be cool but i think Combined Arms with militarys must upgraded first! I think Heatblur gives the startsign with the forrestal crew!

I'd definitely buy a Chinook module if there was one. Would so much rather a Mi-26 though instead. Really want an Mi-26 for DCS sooo much!
I5 4690 3.5Ghz, 8GB RAM, GTX 760 2GB, 2x WD 500GB SSD, 2x 1TB Seagate HDD, Win 7 x64, Sidewinder Precision 2, Logitech Momo Force Racing wheel that i've setup just for using the pedals as rudder/tail rotor control. Does the job.
