All I can say is YESSSSSSS.
Not sure how long it will take before it's finally released but it will be a waiting game for sure.
I for one cannot wait, many like myself have posted on this thread that you cut your teeth on Longbow2 (1997)and got the Chopper bug.
Longbow2 was good for it's time including the graphics. In today's standards it wouldn't come close visually but here's the crunch....the game play, campaign and even "Bitching Mary" has yet to be matched by anybody.
You actually felt part of the war effort this is how immersive the game was.
