For $9.99, probably!

Can you give us more details about it?

This

...and the capabilities. It would need to do more than what the free mods are already doing.

Depends on what the features are, but generally speaking: yes (together with the Harrier )

I would prefer it to come together with the Harrier. Also in MP I think it would cause some issues:

- player 1 has the ship DLC
- player 2 doesn't have the ship DLC.

- They connect to a server where the ship is sailing in the sea.
- Player 1 can spwan, take off and land on the ship

What happens to player 2?
Can he see the ship just as we can see other players even if we don't own the module? That woudl make sense, otherwise the gameplay would feel broken.
BUT, on the ship you can also land and takeoff from, so, what happens if player 2 tries to land on the ship? will he explode or something?

So a Landing Helicopter Assault hull like Tarawa with the ability to use amphibious vehicles and be part of beach landings would be an integral part of trying to get Strait of Hormuz into a fully fantastic setting, but also any other setting with beaches. Would be the killer centre peice for missions if I'm honest, you can make up smaller and more cool scenarios than you could with the massive carriers since they have this damn constraints! The size of these ships and capability suits the DCS world scaling much more, towards less conventional wars to small conflicts and supporting overseas operations.

As a misison designer and virtual content provider for many people it would likely occupy centre stage for all my stuff for a long while.

Think ED answered this one with their Kusnetsov posts. The difference would be in the model detail, a kind of FC3 vs fully m,odelled balance. AFAIK there woudl be nothing to worry about and you can bet they need to sort that out.

I'm gonna add to my comments, I'd likely run up an 8-10 man naval sqn just for this, buy a domain, build a website and turn into a dribbling mess (again).

The difference being that the Kuznetzov is already in the game and a LHD/LHA isn't. So if they are going to have one for sale its either the case of a lower detailed model being added to the game by default or it exists as a pure DLC object. The former is much more acceptable than the latter.
