After the Tomcat?

If not the A6, then something that uses the swing wing and multi crew tech that they developed for the Tomcat. Like the Tornado ;)

The list of multi-crew variable-sweep wing aircraft would be:

 

F-111

Tornado

B-1

Su-24

Tu-22M

Tu-160

 

Although using their technology may of course also mean its either multi-crew or variable-wing sweep. Or even just superb looking ;)

You forgot the Su-17...;)

I mean once the F-14 is well into EA with all major issues ironed out and all early and essential features implemented (Forrestal, A-6 etc.) as well as the Viggen getting out of Early Access and polished up I'd really love to see the A-6E as a flyable module, given that it would fit perfectly into the already created assets and environment Heatblur created (or is going to create) with the Tomcat. Like, come on, it's another Grumman aircraft!

Considering HB have shown to be true trail blazers in expanding the function and features within DCS (some quicker and better implemented than ED itself), I truly hope their next aircraft to be something that pushes the Platform further in as much being a fan favorite for us to fly, like the F14 is to DCS now.

 

I think the A6 is almost a given: similar analog avionics plus multicrew which HB pulled off marvelously in the 14. TBH, I think it's an easy and safe bet to develop. Considering that, my ask for HB's next aircraft is something more risky:

 

The C-130! Any variant will suffice, but I think the c130 will be the PERFECT challenge for HB to expand their capabilities and add utility to the Platform as they've done in the 14. There's some overlap, being a multicrew ac and I can see Jesters implementation working well in the Herc. And depending on version, analog avionics as well. There'd also be a few 1sts for HB: turbo prop, plus maybe their vision or implementation of true Logistical support in DCS.

 

I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility: Meta Aerospace Group, HB's new partners own a turboprop leasing company. While a big stretch, maybe HB could have access to the technical info for making a great turboprop model work in DCS.

Certainly, leveraging the assets and resources of a company is a key thinking point when considering partnership. I'm sure this was all considered in relation to DCS when Heatblur moved forward, especially considering Nicks recent comments on the matter.

 

Long story short, I think the c130 should be done by HB. Maybe not next, but if anyone were to blaze the trail and expand DCS's aircraft offerings past combat/trainer, I'd want it to be HB. And I know they'd give the Herc the justice it deserves. Cheers!

Regarding the C-130 I think what they can do is incorporate a drop down menu somewhere, where a variant can be selected, it can be anything from a standard C-130 to an AC-130, to a KC-130 tanker, EC-130, to an MC-130 or even the longer C-130-30 etc. Knowing this airframe and it's unbelievable versatility I think that's an awesome idea!

For the rafale i agree you, technical information is poor and Dassault dont like simulator project because image rights.

 

Maybe Dassault is changing its tune as it recently collaborated with a developer for a Falcon 8X module.

At least they haven't created the environments they planned. Viggen and Tomcat were both supposed to have maps...

 

That required specific map teams, outside of the planes modules.

I hope that Dev's see how much people are enjoying the RIO spot and it gives them the confidence to make an E-2 or similar.

 

This for sure. I've got a buddy who refused to touch any DCS plane, but when the Tomcat got announced and he heard he could be a RIO, he was psyched. Bugs me to play all the time now, it's great to expand the hobby XD.

I think Heatblur should do the F-4E Phantom instead of ED. ED has put F-4E at the bottom of their module list. I think ED would be open to releasing the rights to the F-4. The technology developed for the F-14 could dovetail nicely into a killer F-4 module.

Well as much i'd like to see that as well, I don't think it's realistic. Either heatblur is neck deep in the A-6 or the 14 is the last we see of them in DCS due to the Meta acquisition. Hopefully that isn't the case:cry:

The pre-purchase and module pages for the Tomcat don't mention a terrain, so don't expect one. It looks like it was mentioned as a hope in the first announcement back in 2015 when they were still Leatherneck, but I saw somewhere Cobra has already confirmed they're not committed to it and it's not coming as the terrain team went with Leatherneck/M3.
