This ones been going on for some time now and been discussed in the Lock On forums alot. Until they are close to release nothing really to add.

Looks interesting but just a few alpha vids and models atm. Fingers crossed it will come o fruition.

Please pick a forum and post. No need to start same thread in every forum. Locking one in GD. No offence.

Nice sim, but what a horrible translation to Spanish. I don't know what's worst: the spelling errors or the weird grammar structures surely produced by some less-than-perfect translation tool. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

we certainly need more sims on the market, but just like my UK brothers would not be interested in a Grenada campaign I'm not interested in the Faulklands conflict.

At the moment, quite the same requirements as PF.

DuxCorvan: I'll be glad if you can help us with the spanish language issue, the translation was done by Ariel Cancio, one of the argentineans of the project, spanish-speaking afaik; I do only the portuguese version and Steve the english versions http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Comparing Falklands/Malvinas' to Grenada's air war is slightly misleading... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

I have always been fascinated by that war, involving very different and peculiar kind of equipment and tactics (think of the Harriers' employment and the Vulcans' raid), and being it a naval war too. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

To be fair, i'm not sure anyone would be interested in a Grenada flight sim, since only one side had aircraft http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I've been following this one for a while, Definatly will be getting it and hold much more interest than Lock-on ever could be.

They also modelled allot of patagonia, one of th e most dramatic landscapes in the world. Can't wait to fly Harriers round the mountains there.

Why not? It uses US built aircrafthttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Because of the way it was fought I'd imagine it would play very much like IL2:FB, small tactical scenario's and intense fights.

Mmmm, looks good. Unfortunately I'm not a jet person.

PS Whats a Pucara?

Double PS: Seeing it was a small area of conflict, they should make something like an FPS for it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I don't like it. It doesn't look good. It looks ok. But they are using photographs for the textures, which may sound logical to made the best look but instead has an weird result in the end. All those textures have different lights on it...say are pre-enlighted by the flashlight of the camera, the sun or anything, and does not even match each others look nor the light engine in game. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Watching the 3D model alone...I must say, it looks better. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

It's the plane in my sig! Here is a bit of info:


FMA IA 58 Pucará

Named after a form of South American stone hill fortress, the Pucara's origins can be traced back to the mid-1960's when Argentina's Fabrica Militar de Aviones ( Military Aircraft Factory ) was requested to develop a new combat aircraft capable of performing COIN, CAS and reconnaissance missions. The first flight of the prototype AX-2 Delfin, powered by a pair of Garrett TPE331-U-303 turbo props, took place on 20 August 1969. Subsequent prototypes were re-engined with French Turbom Eca Astazou XVIG turboprops.

The Pucara was designed to operate from roughfield and unprepared sites with the minimum of ground support - a point it proved to good effect during the Falklands War of 1982. Operations are possible by night, but not in adverse weather conditions, and weapons aiming is achieved visually by the pilot making full use of the excellent forward visibility over the Pucara's downward sloping nose.

The production standard IA 58A first flew on 8 November 1974, with deliveries to the Argentinian Air Force commencing just over a year later.

Improvements led to the IA 58B model, the main upgrades being improved avionics and the addition of two 30mm cannon in place of the 20mm weapons.

However, overall production figures have been modest at best, with exports to Uruguay, Sri Lanka and Colombia accounting for less than 20 aircraft in total

***READ THIS BOOK***


It's called "Sea harrier over the Falklands, by Commander Sharky Ward."

I finished this some months ago and it was a fascinating read. If you plan on getting this game, this book will certainly give you a historical insight into the air war for the falklands. The author was in charge of the harriers on one of the carriers, and flew many combat missions as well.

I was gonna post that!! It's a great book, really gives a great idea of the challenges faced by the RN during the conflict, and gives a very nice description of the various combat tactics used, both the Harriers, and the AAF (although AAF tactics are described from observation in combat, not direct from AAF sources).

It's definately a must read for anyone interested in the Falklands War.
