In a screenshot of a so-called "Evasion cam" in GameInformer, there is a jet dropping flares, which I know alot of you guys were hoping would be in the game. Go ahead, celebrate, you're earned it.

yeah i breathed a sigh of relief when i saw that too. still though, this game seems to be taking its own approach, and we dont have any real info on it. just gonna have to see how it all works out.

real men evade missiles by doing barrel rolls.

I am expecting the battle for air superiority in the future to be fought by highly advanced fighter jets piloted by furries.

battles of the future will most likely be fought with UAV's which will be remote controlled to prevent pilot loss. As far as chaff and flares go, there is no way a modern jet fighter can even hope to evade a missile such as the AIM-9X or AIM-132 without the help of some radar and heat deflection sources seeing as the new missiles can turn faster than the planes can.

I hope you get to flare and do your own maneuver. Not like Heatseeker where you press a button and you fly like superman.

I wonder if we will be able to upgrade our missiles so that they have ECCM, in other words, they would be less prone to losing guidance due to flares, chaff or even electronic countermeasures?
