They need to update the cockpits and models of a whole lot of aircraft before they can release a AAA game.

No answer, guys?
What will be the difference between FC 3 and MAC ?

Well, we have some news... and it kindof makes me feel like Flaming Cliffs might be being abandoned... there are basic quality of life features such as being able to change the settings for the cluster bombs (even prior to the mission would be nice) and fixing things broken in updates.

I was also somewhat hoping that MAC would pave the way for medium fidelity models for aircraft like the Su-17 or newer aircraft... and it might... but I do wonder if the 'action' focus will lead to a loss of underlying realism... cockpits do not have to be clickable to have sensor modelling... but the 'action' settings for the Ka-50 and other modules have removed many of the system limitations in addition to simplifying controls (and thus made the aircraft overpowered).

MAC doesn't appear to be marketed toward the bleeding-edge realism the rest of DCS is geared for. It'll be interesting to see how it shakes out.

Nope, it is not, it's for lower learning curves, and quicker to the action, and less about procedures and by the book.

It will be interesting to see if MAC is open to third parties. I would think that it could be a very interesting platform for companies like Razbam, which have more 3D modelers than coders and a lot of very hot aircraft on their plate.

I wonder if MAC's attraction is planned to be generated from providing aircraft that can't be modelled in DCSW like Typhoon, F-35, F-22, SR-71, Growler, B-52, B-2... and all the modern Russian stuff?
