Magnitude 3 / Leatherneck Simulations have teased us with some rather interesting pictures on their Facebook page.
while we are making sure Corsair will shine in all its glory, the other team prepares to give wings to yet another amazing bird… You’ve heard the saying: “When you’re out of F-8’s - you’re out of fighters.”
Oh great, another fighter for me to smear all over the fantail of the carriers in-game.
Seriously though, I’ve been infatuated with this airplane ever since I saw my uncle’s pictures from his Vietnam days, and have been waiting for a Crusader for a long, long, LONG time in a flight sim- I bought Jane’s USNF '97 back in high school strictly because the 'Sader was included in the Vietnam campaign, and kept the Thirdwire games installed on my hard drive for a long time for the same reason- so this is very welcome news.
Now, does this mean we’re also getting an SCB-125 Essex model, Skywarriors, and Skyraiders? Oh, and maybe a Willy Fudd as well?
CCIP and moving map (before it was cool), plus it’ll round out the late Vietnam- end of the Cold War timeframe. Plus, depending on model, the Air Force could play too. Not to mention the Greeks and Portuguese. I know I’d enjoy bombing in it, especially if we could get entire strike packages worked up.
