It'd be kinda weird having a completely different aircraft when compared to the others..
I don't see it fitting in with the factions. And the vehicle scanning.. locking GBU's, GPS targeting.. The other aircrafts don't have such abilities.

Not too would fall in the NATO class, and yes, it has slightly advanced capabilities over the others in game, but even each of the current aircraft have different capabilities compared to each other. If a comparable AAC/CSAT aircraft is need, it could be easily balanced with the SU-35 as an adversarial counterpart. Still, BIS paid 20,000 euros for this production and its F/A-18E/F Super Hornet predecessor is one of the most downloaded MOD aircraft of all times.

I think the reason BI will never directly implement a mod into the game is because mods are often script heavy, while BIs own stuff is coded directly into the engine.

Need a new vanilla jet? Better call Saul

@ SomeSangheili (what you said) Exactly! Saul could easily take the Black Wasp and adapt it to the BIS formats needed to introduce a carrier/land-based strike fighter. Vote it up!

This isn't dire "No Can Do" here, we have the talent and the capability to introduce more jets into A3 with no problem and no frustration. Instead of saying "We Can't Do that," say "Humm, how can we do that?"

@Echo, this is no longer a MOD, BIS owns it! They paid E:20,000 for it through an award to is their aircraft now!
