For those who care, here’s a link to Carl’s goodbye post on the Ubi forums:
A big blow to the community, especially after Matt Wagner left earlier in the year.
In other news the ED developers have confirmed that they have two addons in the works. One will add the Su-25(T) and a whole bunch of new improvements to avionics and such, the other will be a KA-50 Hokum addon (don’t know whether it will include any flyable US helos but I’m thinking not).
Looking forward to having another high fidelity helo sim, but I can’t see it living up to the greatness of LB2 or EECH with a campaign that’s as sterile as the ones found in Flanker and LOMAC. Still, I’ll take what I can get and am looking forward to it.
