There was a flight sim under development on the Mediterranean theater many years ago called "Desert Fighters." Dynamix, the people who made "Red Baron 3D" were working on it when Sierra Inc., their owners, pulled the plug on Dynamix.

Sierra had a flight sim called "desert fighters" i belive some 5-7 years ago, that looked REAL great, but then all the sudden, they scratched it together with "Babylon 5" and had only one game going...."Half life"

I know it is not quite the same as a dedicated desert sim, but you have most of the ingredients already. Use the desert map, maybe download some desert skins, a little imagination and you can fly off tunisia or Libya. You have all the important versions of the hurricane, the spit mkvb, the p-40, me 109 and 110, several italian planes, and lots of bombers.

but we dont have the "trop" variants

won't all that fine sand and dust clog our engines if we only have northern european air filters ?

So far, I see no effort to do *anything* right in the Med from the IL-2 team. The Desert and Med Island maps are jokes. You have what I suppose is Sicily and Malta the same size, only about 10km away from each other (try 100km, and Malta is dozens of times smaller than its larger neighbor to the North), and on the Desert Map, we're to believe that all of Cyrenaica and Egypt's coastlines are about 30km in length.

Utter rubbish.

Look for Target:Tobruk (http://targettobruk.twsim.net/) to rectify that, though, it's rapidly progressing and will put this little effort to shame.

Sully = Banger/DarkEye of CombatSim.com fame?

Good on ya! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

The desert map is OK, as is the online 8, but the poll done a couple of years back showed a marked
interest in the Med. Desert Fighters might've rocked, but done by 1C? Bliss! Maybe next year?

I am sure not gonna sneeze at Pacific fighters. It's shaping up to both rock and roll...
