Update on future products...

In the coming months we plan to release several new projects. While we wish to have open communications with our customers and let them know of our planned projects, please understand that plans often change due to unforeseen circumstances. The below list is a road map of our intentions and not a promise of things to come. As each product nears completion and feature lists are finalized, more details will be provided.

1- Combined Arms. This $19.99 add-on will allow A-10C, Black Shark 2, and Flaming Cliffs 3 owner to act as ground force commanders as the mission is running. Users can direct ground units, set fire missions for artillery/multiple rocket launchers, and take the role of a Joint Terminal Air Controller (JTAC). As the JTAC, players will have night vision goggles, IR pointer, laser designator, and Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR). Several other new items are still being considered. Combined Arms will work in both single player and multiplayer missions.

2- Flaming Cliffs 3. This will be a paid-for update to the Flaming Cliffs series and brings it to the same world, mission editor, AI, units, etc. as A-10C and Black Shark 2. We plan to include several upgrades to the aircraft, a resource management system, and several other new features. This will also make Flaming Cliffs online compatible with A-10C and Black Shark 2. Pricing will depend on what new features are included.

3- Nevada map. This will be a $19.99 add-on that will be compatible with A-10C, Black Shark 2, and FC3. Users that purchased the A-10C beta will get this map for free.

4- The first "DCS Flying Legends" aircraft will be released in the first half of 2012.

5- The next US fixed wing jet DCS aircraft is being worked on in parallel.

For Combined Arms and the Nevada map, a single purchase will allow these add-ons to work with A-10C 1.1.1.0, Black Shark 2, and FC3.

Ooo, that kind of legendary, as in possibly a heritage flight? My first thought was something Russian and 1970's to be honest.

If the DCS series has something with a spinning thing on the front, rather than on top, then that would be huge news. Wow.

ED has an FM engine capable of simulating anything that flies. Having access to 'anything that flies' to properly simulate it is a very huge, practical bonus wink

FC3 is good news. Looking forward to it.

About the Flying Legend aircraft:

There is a map with a bunch of files in my BS2 full version:

C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS Black Shark 2\Data\EagleFM\P51B

Could it be???

Although I can't say for certain, I assume it will only require Lock On:-Modern Air Combat. Don't take this as gospel though, no information has been given yet. But the legalities of things with UBIsoft would suggest to me that this is the only way it could work.
