The team has been hard at work debugging FC3 and adding some new features; however, this has resulted in the game not being available in September as we had first planned. We regret the delay, but we hope the additional time will result in a better product.

Flaming Cliffs 3 - MiG-29S TWS Dual Track Demo

 

This is a brief demo of the new Track While Scan (TWS) radar mode of the MiG-29S that allows you to engage two targets at once using the R-77 air-to-air missile. This mode is not yet available on the 1.2.2 beta version.

As mentioned earlier, one of the features of FC3 will be a new 6 DOF cockpit for the Su-27 Flanker. This is in addition to new cockpits for the F-15C, A-10A, and Su-25.

 

Here are some first look, work in progress images of the new Flanker cockpit.

 

Two point though:

 

1- It will not be ready for the 1.2.3 update.

 

2- As part of the Lock On: Flaming Cliffs series, it will not have mouse interactive cockpit.

The A-10A will also have an advanced flight model.

1- It will not be ready for the 1.2.3 update.

 

2- As part of the Lock On: Flaming Cliffs series, it will not have mouse interactive cockpit.

 

* Yes, we know the needles on the fuel gauge have no texture yet.
