I can't speak for VKB but I read somewhere of the possibility of the KG12 Metal grip being released around the same time as the WWII variant of the throttle (first variant) So, whenever the throttle comes out... would be awesome if it were this year but I'm not holding my breath!

A full metal version of the kg-12 grip was announced with pictures of finished prototypes over 3 years ago... in the present situation they seem to refuse any further information about a indefinitely delay, upcoming release or if this project was canceled completely.

They did just move to a new factory, recently. Tooling needs to be sorted out amongst the floorspace etc.
Logistics takes time!

In IL-2.ru they say recently that will not make MCG in metal, this will result in a ~2KG grip without practical beneffity and nasty effects for gimbal, so unless they change mind... :wink:

BTW - An real fighter grip:

Made in composite material.

In E3 2018 Thrustmaster PR say that their F-18 grip "add-on" for Warthog base will be made in... the old and good plastic. :mrgreen:
