I read a little snippet of info in one of the other posts about a new sim to hit the shelves Q4 of this year named "The Flying Tigers" from our 'friends' over at Shockwave. I searched their site but couldn't find anything. Anyone have a link to the page???? I understand that this will be based on a rewrite of the Merlin code from BoB2. Personally I didn't have any luck running BoB2 as my specs weren't up for it (yes, it's time to upgrade), but since I've got every other flight sim known to man I figured I'd get this one as well. Anyone have any other information on this? Thanks in advance.

SimHQ Exclusive Announcement:
Shockwave Productions Announces Their Next Air Combat Simulation, "The Flying Tigers."

"This is a new kind of air combat simulation, based around the famous P40B Warhawk. You are a member of the American Volunteer Group (AVG) hired by the Chinese to defend against the Japanese empire. There are all types of combat situations from scrambles, interceptions, defending convoys on the Burma road, and even attacks on Japanese airfields. Many people don't know that during this conflict there were actually times when American P40's actually flew alongside British Hurricanes, which makes for some interesting air combat scenarios. The more we study this conflict, the more excited we are about this product," said Scott Gentile of Shockwave Productions Inc.

Other Japanese aircraft to be included will be the:

Nakajima Ki-27 "Nate" fixed-gear fighter
Nakajima Ki-43 "Hayabusa" retractable gear fighter
Kawasaki Ki-48 "Lily" twin-engined level bomber
Mitsubishi Ki-21 "Sally" twin-engined level bomber
Kawasaki Ki-45 "Toryu" twin-engined fighter
"The Flying Tigers" is being created for the latest hardware, including native support for dual core processors. "The Flying Tigers" is slated for a 2007 release.
