And I don't mean mods, I mean OFICIAL BI content. Mods shouldn't be a way to fill incomplete games, mods only generate new content, not content that the game needs, otherwise it would be an incomplete game. All the units listed above (or equivalents) are a must.
I know they are working in 2 CAS aircrafts, and trying to get fixed many bugs as posible, but they should start working in more vehicles, and not only depend in mods for something essential as vehicles are.
A good reference would be Arma 2, in there there were many different oficial aircrafts, and then modders added new ones, but not to fulfill the lack of vehicles as in Arma 3.
Besides, adding new vehicles shouldn't be too hard, after all BI is using the same vehicle ''bases and turrets'' and a new camo to make different vehicles.
For example, adding a new MLRS for CSAT and AAF would be pretty easy, they simply would use the turret of the M5 Sandstorm MLRS, the base of the respective IFV of that faction, and a new camo. That's what they have been doing.
Ok with the Addition of the A-164 Wipeout , the To-199 Neophron and the tempest truck the game is much better now, if they were to add new vehicles next, these would have to be heavy helicopters/cargo transports such as:
considering that the devs may have used this as a concept for the A-164 Wipeout:
I think those VTOLs could become helpful too.
