What about DC-8 Super 70s? 110 were "made" or converted and were used in both passenger and freight service by big name airlines and freight companies; For those who dont know DC-8 Super 70's were DC-8 60 series that had CMF-56-2 installed at a cost of about $12 million per aircraft.

"The Super 70s were about 70% quieter than the Super 60 Series and between 18% and 25% more fuel efficient than the JT3D, depending on the model"

DC-8-71 - range of at least 4100nm a fuel burn of 8300 kg/hr FAA certification on August 15th 1981
DC-8-72 - range of at least 6070nm a fuel burn of 7060 kg/hr FAA certification on September 17th 1982.
DC-8-73 - range of at least 5860nm a fuel burn of 7320 kg/hr FAA certification on June 23rd 1983

those are going off the conservative numbers, they also had decreased take off run and all models would then qualify for Chapter 4 certification. It was reported that all versions of the aircraft gained at least a 40% increase in usable range but were still limited to 60 series operational limits. I would think these would be an easy update to incorporate much like when you can install hush kits for certain aircraft.

Basler Turbo BT-67, it is an upgraded DC-3. It replaces the piston engine with P&W PT6 engines, increases range by double, which by the way is 800 NM not 300nm as in the game :-[
The BT-67 was launched in 1990 and costs around $2 million to build, this zero times the aircraft, gives it new engines, places a 10ft plug in the front, increases max usable load by 42%, lightens the plane, increases MTOW, known icing certified and a whole slew of other goodies. I think it would be a good addition to those still holding onto the past or for cargo users on short fat routes where a larger, than a cessna, would be helpful.

Junkers Ju 90
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junkers_Ju_90

I think it would do very well on the used market against the DC-3. Since it seat 40 pax.

There is one Baade 152 model already in the game that summarizes all your VEBs. Considering the "success" of the aircraft, it's far enough.

They are all different aircrafts with vastly different design, for example 152 was a quad jet and 153 was to be a twin turboprop and 154 was to be a large quad turboprop aircraft and 155 was to be a smaller twin jet according to webpages listed above. And I don't think all of them can be named under Baade

Don't know if this has been brought up yet but how about the Fairchild Metro V/25? Per the wiki, the model was first advertised at the Paris Air Show in 1987 and a prototype built in 1989.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairchild_Swearingen_Metroliner

Info states the capacity for the 25/V increases to 25 (the Metro 23 we have in-game is listed at 19).

Additionally, flightglobal archives lists a gross weight is 16,000lbs. Range goes up 220nm with newer Garrett TPE-331-12 engines (Metro 23 has -11 engines). Engine power goes up 8% and field performance is also improved.

Flightglobal also lists cargo volumes. This is something we are currently missing for the Metro 23 so I hope this can be added very soon. It lists the Metro 23 aft baggage volume at 143.5 cubic feet. For the Metro V/25, the aft baggage volume is 206 cubic feet.

For use as a pure freighter (which the Metro 23 has been used as), the cabin volume is 622 cubic feet. So forward, cabin, and aft would be 45 + 622 + 143.5 = 810.5 cubic feet of cargo volume. For the Metro V/25, the forward/cabin/aft total freighter volume would be 45 + 622 + 206 = 873 cubic feet.
