Default Announcing Lock On: Flaming Cliffs 3

Announcing Lock On: Flaming Cliffs 3

DUXFORD, UK, September 1st, 2012 – The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics will release Lock On: Flaming Cliffs 3 for Windows PC in September 2012.

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. FC3 adds a number of new features and improvements to previous versions of the Flaming Cliffs series. FC3 is a module of DCS: World, which makes it compatible with all other DCS: World titles like A-10C, Black Shark 2, P-51D, and Combined Arms.

FC3 will be priced at $39.99.

Key Features of Lock On: Flaming Cliffs 3 include:
  • A DCS World module that is compatible with DCS titles.
  • New 6 degrees of freedom (6DOF) cockpit and model for the F-15C.
  • New F-15C campaign and single missions.
  • Improved takeoff and landing flight dynamics.
  • New, advanced flight dynamics for air-to-air missiles.
  • Updated and improved HUDs and other cockpit systems.
  • Resource Manager that adds logistics control to missions.
  • Expanded theatre of operations map into eastern Georgia.
  • Countless other improvements in the areas of the mission editor, special effects, new models, improved terrain detail and AI.
Lock On: Flaming Cliffs 3 will require an installation of Lock On: Modern Air Combat or a previous version Flaming Cliffs.

DCS: World
is a new, free, combat simulation. DCS: World provides a free-to-play Su-25T ground attack aircraft with unlimited online restrictions. Online DCS: World includes friendly and enemy forces that can be controlled by other players or AI air and ground units. The purchase of additional DCS modules allows the player to have careers as pilots of the A-10C Warthog, KA-50 Black Shark attack helicopter, P-51D Mustang, or armor vehicle commander. You may read more about DCS: World and its modules at: http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/

Glad to see this moving along! That Eagle cockpit looks incredible. One question, will the improved takeoff and landing flight dynamics extend to all SFM aircraft in DCS:World, or is that purely a feature of these individual aircraft?

"Improved takeoff and landing flight dynamics", can you explain this a bit more Wags?

So, why the special treatment for F-15? To me, it makes no sense to release FC3 with only one plane getting the goodies, the inconsistency is disturbing.

The rest is DCS stuff cooked for FC, which I already have with A-10, BS. So far I have bought every single title ED has put out to help them, but seriously I'm starting to feel "milked". 40$ is a steep price just for DCS World compatibility.
