First new project is called Warbirds, and i see a cockpit from an Me109er.
But they write they want to release full scale combat simulations and "Modernized combat simulations".
Sounds like new Tank Platoon and Gunship stuff....hopefully charge

Someone has bought the MP trademark.

It will first be used as a 'wrapper' to attempt to repopularise Warbirds. Nothing bad in that, but until we see what it is they have actually made (A new engine, based on UE4??), it is premature to ejaculate so enthusiastically about MP "being back". Especially since Warbirds was online 'only' with very basic drones.

The "Titan IM" engine is based on Outerra.

Looks like a new B17: The Mighty Eighth game is in the works: https://www.microprose.com/games/the-mighty-eighth
Looks like this one will have multiplayer, but it looks like the players will be manning the different crew positions.
It also will have VR support.

Looks like we're being spoilt. First,Task Force Admiral and now this? Dare I hope for an M1 Tank Platoon re-make?

So many teasers at one time, it is hard to believe that all of that can be finished succesfully.
