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.

news about the "classic" aircraft is very exciting. any word on whether it will have a damage model, whether it will be able to use weapons and whether it will have an adversary?

let's start the speculation here as to what the aircraft will be.

I'm guessing P-47.

I want it all and I want it now.

And it's not the Jug. This sim has carrier ops already. It will be the F6F-5 Hellcat or F4U-1D Corsair with an old straight deck flattop.

Cheers!

The money over at the DCS forums is it will be a P-51B. Apparently there was a left over file in the A-10 beta saying P-51. But who knows. Just happy to see the Cliffs of Dover mob get some competition. Lord knows they need it.

Hooray! This makes me happy- can I perhaps hope for an Su-27S upgrade, or daresay even a MiG-29 M2 upgrade?

I'll be happy with anything they release. I'm a shameless Eagle Dynamics fan. I can't help it. They turned any resistance from me futile with DCS: Black Shark.

What I want from them now is an American helicopter, preferably not the Apache, but I'll take that too if they make it, and an F/A-18C sim with carrier ops.

If they'd do an HH-46A, CH-46D, SH-3G, SH-2F, or SH-60B sim I could die a happy man. Or a UH-1B sim featuring HAL-3 in Vietnam if they wanted to make me delirious, but that's even more farfetched than the others. Hell, I'd even settle for a really good TH-57A sim.

But overall, based on their past products, I'll grin and buy whatever they choose to produce.

Cheers!

I'm with you Sauron, I'll be happy with whatever they release. But I would be confused if they released a WWII Aircraft. I mean, at that point won't it just be a pure flying sim? Or do you think they'll make it a WWII Combat sim?

I hope FC3 is only $10 or so. I wish they would release patches/updates for free, but I don't mind paying a little to get some large improvements. The thing is, will it be bloated with the same garbage optimization and DRM? Hopefully it will be stand alone and backwards compatible with FC2 missions.

What I dislike is the $20 Nevada terrian addon for two reasons. For one, $20 for some extra terrian is a rip off. Two, it splits the MP community. What if I want to play a mission on the Nevada terrian, and the other players don't have it? They'll get disconnected or have to quit... which kills the community far quicker. This is not such a big problem in games like BF3 with huge player bases, but Lock On doesn't even have a fraction of online players.

What I am keen to see is a complete list of improvements made in FC3... I do love the good old SU-25 so much, it has a lovely engine roar and overspeed shake. I'm hoping that they will push the quality slider closer to the study sim end of the scale. What do you think the chances are for click able cockpits being added?

My thoughts exactly. It's not that I'd be terribly dissapointed with such a release, but it seems to me that the FC2/DCS community is not exactly the target audience for a WWII classic warplane chargeable add-on that you get to fly in a modern environment. If you want to do that, you're already playing FSX and not looking at Eagle Dynamics forum updates. And if you're a true WWII simulations flyer, you're currently trying to shake out all the bugs from CoD and making it run smoothly on your computer... I'm not sure that the CoD crowd would see this as an alternative.

What I'd hope for in terms of 'Legend' is more something along the lines of legendary aircraft that are still in active service (therefore who could logically be seen in scenarios in the DCS world), for example F-4, Mig-21... simpler avionics type of aircrafts that can be done faster than, say, an F-18 or an F-15.
