This is just wonderful news.
I've nothing against IL-2 and it's offspring, Forgotten Battles and Pacific Fighters. And I hope that Maddox Games continues to develop flight sims. But it does get kind of limiting having the same game engine - with all it's strengths and weaknesses - being developed for several games. As much as anything simply because all the aircraft developed are only one developers view on how they perform. Which in many cases is not always correct.
So it is really great to see another developer getting into the genre. We can all only benefit from this.
