The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics have announced the next title in their “Flaming Cliffs” series, designed as a slightly easier introduction to modern aerial warfare than the detail-heavy and complex DCS series.
To quote their press release, recently received by simFlight, “Lock On: Flaming Cliffs 3 (FC3) is the next evolution of the Flaming Cliffs series. FC3 features the F-15C, A-10A, Su-27, Su-33, MiG-29A, MiG-29S, Su-25T, and Su-25. FC3 aircraft provide an easy learning curve for new players and focuses on a broad range of aircraft rather than a detailed single aircraft.”
