Some new 'Lock On' screens, since we never posted anything on this game before i added some older one's as well. The shots showing the HUD and Radar are not final and are early versions of these features. One Shot shows the new textures for the MiG-23. Note that the terrain in this shot has not been updated. Another is a shot of an F-15C launching a missile. Note the new smoke and missile plume art. A shot of the F-15 HUD in gun mode and another depicting a locked target in BVR mode are also early versions that include several problems with various buttons and displays. I'm not much of a flight sim fan but i have ot admit they look mighty tasty!
