Unhappy Looking back -> MCG grip for TM base -> ooops

MCG-TM is not the highest priority but we don't cancel it and will deliver it finally.
Surprisingly, after more than a year this question popped up again at Reddit boards, so let me copy my reply here for wider coverage.

There's been plenty of water since I posted that information.
This plan has been dumped.
The reason is simple, and very frustrating in a way: the number of people who would want to mount an MCG onto a TM base would never excuse spending on RnD and manufacturing the adapters in question. Fact is, VKB would hardly sell a handful - yes, I literally mean a handful - of these devices.
TM base with all due respect belongs in history. Putting a MCG on it would mean wasting 90+ per cent of the grip's potential. TM WH grip at least has its metal appeal, and ergonomically it is an eternal masterpiece. Their base, however... I don't want to speak it out, but you understand me.
Maybe it was my bad that I didn't update in on the il2 forum that we stopped working on it, but you know... no one asked about it for more than a year. I simply let it slip.


So, making it finally clear, we regret to say there will be no MCG->TM base adapter. We apologize to those who are affected by this decision.

Which firmware should i use with a "Vintage Mamba"+"MCG Pro (5 pins)"?
Maybe "_MambaFat_MCG_Pro_v1_96_F.vkb"?
... Or "_BlackMamba_MCG_v1_96_F.vkb" since on the base it's written "Black Mamba Limited Edition"?
