There is a new one coming out called Blackshark, and if memory serves me correctly it is by the same people who brought us Lock On/Lock On Flaming Cliffs. It is anticipated as being a pretty good one, and I am looking forward to it as I have a weakness for chopper sims (too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif)There is also one coming out for PS2 that looks promising. I dont usually do console games so I might have to provide my son with a copy of this one...HEH HEH

Longbow/Longbow2 are my Helicopter sims.
They're quite old, back to 1998 i think so graphics might seem lacking now a days.

I don't really care. Well I lika fancy graphics and reflections on the water like everybody else. But for sims the only thing I ask for is good FM.

Longbow/Longbow2 have it.
You can even play coop in a single helicopter in pilot/gonner roles where one takes care of avionics and flying while the other takes care of target searching, radars, arming systems...

There's still a comunity of ppl playing that game online. It really surprised me. There are even projects going on to model new ground/air units, add buildings to the 3d environment, add new maps... Amazing.

I wish Jane's Simulations was still with us. They were the best man!!!

BlackShark is a complete study sim and will far surpass any helicopter sim to date.
