I am requesting the XB-70 Valkyrie
I believe it would be a great addition to Arma for it's unique design payload and performance (I don't even care if you give it the Mach 3 capability in game)

First flying September 21st 1964 the North American Aviation XB-70 Valkyrie was the prototype version of the planned B-70 nuclear-armed, deep-penetration strategic bomber for the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command. Designed in the late 1950s by North American Aviation, the six-engined Valkyrie was capable of cruising for thousands of miles at Mach 3+ while flying at 70,000 feet (21,000 m). Back in the day it is believed the aircraft would have been too fast and flown too high for interceptors to get it
