Who came up for the name for LOMAC?

Did they know that a game named Lock-On is already in production?

I doubt it.

It's a 16 (almost 17) year old game, and is most definitely no longer "in production".

There's no chance of any confusion between the two, and even if there was, it's likely that adding the "Modern Air Combat" part is enough to get around it.

Further, I don't believe Oleg himself has any connection with the project at all, does he? It's an Ubi thing.

If you want you can go look it up. I found it buried on my old PC's hardrive from 1992.

Oleg doesn't have anything to do with LOMAC. LOMAC and IL-2 are both produced by Ubi though.
