MirageIII is closer to IL-2/FB than The LOMACS/The Falcons, so OT = On Topic http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I don't think the FMB is all that detailed at the moment. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Yeah, but are they accurately modeled? I have no faith in that title that they are, or that anyone even gives a rat's butt, provided the planes "look kewl." This new sim's intention is to do justice to the Falklands War, and at least they're *saying* accuracy is important.

They're not aiming for a "sim lite".

Our real fighter pilots in SFP1 community seem satisfied with them. That certainly mean that they should be good enough for me.

If the Jet Thunders takes off like the FB, I would hope it is extended back to Late 1940s to 1960s

But...sim lite or not, StrikeFighters will always be *first* to dare the 1960s. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

While we're on the "interesting plane set" and the Mirage III, I dunno how many of you guys are familiar with the Angolan Theatre currently under dev for F4 and its variants. Looking absolutely awesome! Following images lifted from the Angolan Theatre Update Thread (http://forums.frugalsworld.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=83331&page=2&pp=50) on FrugalsWorld's F4 Forums:
