Hi, anyone going to take a crack at making one of these super intruders? Would like to see them with the air to air capbility for defense, than rely on escort. I suppose another what if.

 

See here:

 

A-6F and A-6G

 

A-6F prototype in 1987An advanced A-6F Intruder II was proposed in the mid-1980s that would have replaced the Intruder's elderly Pratt & Whitney J52 turbojets with non-afterburning versions of the General Electric F404 turbofan used in the F/A-18 Hornet, providing substantial improvements in both power and fuel economy. The A-6F would have had totally new avionics, including a Norden AN/APQ-173 synthetic aperture radar and multi-function cockpit displays – the APQ-173 would have given the Intruder air-to-air capacity with provision for the AIM-120 AMRAAM. Two additional wing pylons were added, for a total of seven stations.

 

Although five development aircraft were built, the Navy ultimately chose not to authorize the A-6F, preferring to concentrate on the A-12 Avenger II. This left the service in a quandary when the A-12 was cancelled in 1991.

 

Grumman proposed a cheaper alternative in the A-6G, which had most of the A-6F's advanced electronics, but retained the existing engines. This, too, was cancelled

And what's keeping YOU from doing the ini dance??? It's just text..extra plyons can be added via the FakePilot method. Cockpit avionics can be easily tweeked, using pointers to all-stock items.
