Yeah!

I've seen the doco Top Gun and you never see them screwing with pre flight checks and that ****. You only do that in 'imaginary' PC world.

Well, you could skip all that and go straight to the action. The realism settings are very flexible.

Guys this game is Blazing angels with different content. The Bucharest studio used IL2 code and for 10 years succeded in creating something proprietary - BA and BA2 but because of not so warm wellcome of the second one are now shifting the franchise to a more futuristic environment and stamping it with the Tom Clancy badge (have read somewhere that they now own all the rights on his name without further royalties).

As long as it has at least a first person view. How I hate flight sim/games with only a 3rd person view.

I don't see it having a check list as long as posted before, remember it will be a console port as every PC game is now a days.

meaning it will be dumbed down ...... and most likely only 3rd person view.

Hopefully it won't be crap like Blazing Angels or Ace Combat 6 but rather a mixture of a semi-realistic Lock On.
