THIS IS A WIP LIST. If I have missed anything, then please do let me know and I’ll add it to this list
There has been a recent and ongoing notion that Britain can’t get any more aircraft, because it simply doesn’t have any left to be added. This is untrue for every single BR in game, even top tier.
For this list, I’m not going to list every single variant for every single aircraft, especially for those we already have, unless there is a notable exception. This list is mostly looking at new British Aircraft, Including notable export variants
There is still this list of aircraft that could very much be added, that includes variants:
The UK never indigenously upgraded the Hunter but this one is Omani (or Singaporean) F.6 and is commonwealth and around the same spec as the swiss hunter F.58 with flares, 2 9P’s/J’s, however the missiles are on new additional pylons so it could carry the full ordinance of a Hunter F.6 in addition to this.
The full version of the image shows that it was being constructed based off the concept mockup but construction had indeed started. In front of the full-scale mockup in this picture is an early image of its construction.
As with another aircraft that I have mentioned prior (i forget which) its parts are preserved at RAF Cosford.
Unfortunately the P.110 would only ever be developed to the mock-up stage so it wouldn’t fit the criteria for additions, the data from P.110 was used in the design of the BAe EAP (which Gaijin has denied) and then went on to secede into the eventual Eurofighter Typhoon.
The exceptions needed to add these aircraft would need to be deep internal decisions and given that Gaijin denied the F-14K ,which was the most reasonable option based on the AJ, because the UK’s lack of a 4th generation fighter is apparently not equivalent to Japan’s lack of a 4th generation aircraft (despite EJ Kai actually being a higher br than anything the UK has but the Harrier). Its highly highly highly unlikely to the point i’d say impossible that Gaijin would make such an exception for the P.110 and not the EAP or F-14K.
I’ll chip in the Shackleton MR.3. Dorsal turret was removed, but two Viper turbojets were installed behind the piston engines, one on each side. These are takeoff boosters, but this is War Thunder, so you’d basically have super WEP in exchange for ditching a turret.
