La-7...pls tell us that it will be for DCS!

Just so everyone knows what Hunter Joker is referring to:

Couldn't agree more with your sentiment, a late-war Soviet prop is going to be an instant purchase for me. I really hope it's for DCS. Based on what fellow players have been saying about the I-16 and the rave reviews it got I'm not worried about the quality of the eventual module, not in the slightest.

DCS module wishlist: F-104S ASA-M Starfighter / F-111F Aardvark / F-4E Phantom II / J 35F2 Draken / J-7M AirGuard / Kfir C.2 / MiG-17F / MiG-21 Bison / Mirage F1 / Su-17M4 / Su-24M / Yak-9U

Exactly what we need to flesh out the WW2 planeset we already have.:doh:

P-51D | Fw 190D-9 | Bf 109K-4 | Spitfire Mk IX | P-47D | WW2 assets pack | F-86 | Mig-15 | Mig-21 | Mirage 2000C | A-10C II | F-5E | F-16 | F/A-18 | Ka-50 | Combined Arms | FC3 | Nevada | Normandy | Straight of Hormuz | Syria

The 3D model is the quickest stage of a DCS aircraft development. The I-16 development started on 2014 or earlier, yet the finished aircraft appeared in 2019 ... so, I'm not holding my breath to see it on DCS.

What's wrong with a wildcard entry into a list of well-established 1944 favourites? It's not like Normandy is the only WW2 map we're ever going to get. Besides, just like @Rudel_chw mentioned, this might take years to materialise. Plenty of things can change between now and then.

I wish we could have every map we want and every plane, I do. But if I have to choose I'm going with one complete planeset for one theater before a scattershot of the whole war.

 

Someone will make something random though, don't worry. We already have an I-16...:suspect:

There is a plan for Fulga Gap map (Central Europe). Maybe It could be good idea to do WW2 version of it, which would benefit both La-7 and P-51, P-47. Spitfire etc.

I really hope that Lavochkin is going to DCS, Its wonderfull aircraft and much better oponent for Luftwaffe fighters that we have In game right now.

Lavochkin La-7 or even the La-5/La-5FN from осьминог-г?? First day buy. Heck, I'll pre-order. Want to kick start?

 

La-5FN was an all time favorite from a different sim. Absolute beast on the deck as long as there was no failure/poor manufacturing modeling.

 

Yes, I know, I buy all my mods first day, but I'd actually fly this one! Two (or three) 20mm cannon, accelerates like it has an afterburner, good visibility (in non-Soviet versions). The only one I've ever seen is a replica at the Nizhney Novgorod Kremlin museum, and it was still beautiful...

OMG!!! Finally, a La-7 on the horizon. My second favorite WW2 aircraft (after the I-16).In some ways, the more maneuverable Yak-3 would have been better, but the La-7 is an outstanding choice too. So looking forward this!!!
