What they need is a new MS Combat Flight Sim 4.
Something with Terrain, and aircraft that shoot.......I'd buy.

Anything they come out with that is a combat flight sim, would be 'new'.

Interesting. DTG have a long history of offering with a base product and massively leveraging DLC in their Train Simulator product. The Train Simulator has even offered free engine updates from version to version for previous owners.

Makes sense they could to extend that same business model into flight simulation, particularly if their license allows them to provide some core engine and graphics improvements over FSX. Then, just like a new DLC loco or train route from time to time, it would be a new aircraft or airport DLC.

They, DTG, mentioned that the fishing simulator is to get to grips with the Unreal engine before the release Train Simulator on the Unreal Engine in 2016 or so.
