WtF? Aircraft 'fit' for DCS...

Alright, here's something for a bit of fun...

 

What are some planes that are so outlandish, and so "It was a good idea at the time..." that you would like to see in DCS?

 

Rules:

1: It must be something that was conceived and can have at least some documentation for.

2: It must be something something designed by a real-world country

3: It must ask "who's nuts enough to fly this thing?"

 

And my first candidate:

 

The XF-85 Goblin.

McDonnell XF-85 Goblin - Wikipedia

 

Yes, this tiny thing actually flew, and it was designed to be dropped out of B-36 Peacemakers as it's own escort fighter... I mean... it was the 50s after all. Now, I suck at Mid-Air refueling, to the point I have yet to make a single hook-up... could you imagine people trying to do the one thing this things single test pilot couldn't manage?

 

Alright, let's see what wild, hair-brained aircraft you guys would like to see in DCS. Remember, this is just for fun, thus why it's not in Wishlist.

Convair Sea Dart, absolute P.O.S. apparently, but could be interesting?

Something less exotic, but still "what if": I'd actually love to see DCS: Yak-41, based on the -141 prototypes. If we can't have the real modern, red toys, have some educated guesstimates on the toys that didn't become real.

Martin P6M Seamaster: Atomic bomber flying boat. Words I'd never have thought I'd hear in a single sentence. Built right at the border between WWII and modern air warfare: A jet powered flying boat carrying nuclear weapons and a gun defensive armament. Exotic, to say the least. Quite the looker, too.

The Convair F-106 Delta Dart was the primary all-weather interceptor aircraft of the United States Air Force from the 1960s through to the 1980s. Designed as the so-called "Ultimate Interceptor", it proved to be the last specialist interceptor in U.S. Air Force service to date. It was gradually retired during the 1980s, (& it carries semi-active radar guided missiles with a 250 ton TNT equivalent)
