DCS: P-51D Mustang Announced

Eagle Dynamics announces DCS: P-51D Mustang as the next installment in their Digital Combat Simulator series, saying they plan on releasing it later this year. They promise more details will come and for now, here are some screenshots, and this is what they say about their depiction of the Cadillac of the skies:

The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics will release their next Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) aircraft in 2012: the legendary P-51D Mustang. The Mustang was among the best and most well-known fighters used by the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. Possessing excellent range and manoeuvrability, the P-51 operated primarily as a long-range escort fighter and also as a ground attack fighter-bomber with bombs, rockets, and machine guns. The Mustang served in nearly every combat zone during WWII, and later fought in the Korean War.

The DCS: P-51D Mustang will be modelled at the same exacting detail as the existing Ka-50 Black Shark and A-10C Warthog Digital Combat Simulation (DCS) aircraft and it will be online compatible with them. Based on many years of restoring, flying and maintaining Mustangs, The Fighter Collection brings its unique ability to portray this aircraft in its full glory.

The P-51D will be the first aircraft in the Flying Legends series that focuses on historical aircraft that have set benchmarks in combat aviation. This series of simulations demonstrates the broad scope of DCS simulation environment and its ability to introduce aircraft from all eras into a common simulation environment. While the P-51D started as an internal technology demonstration, it has evolved into an independent product that adds an all new dimension to the DCS universe. The development of the P-51D and other Flying Legends series aircraft definitely does not preclude the continued development of modern aircraft.

Might have to spring for this one... The A-10 looked too complicated for me, I prefer the "analog" feel of the old WWII planes. I loved the original IL2 but hated how stripped down Cliffs of Dover felt, however I did LOVE the manual start-up sequences in CoD, so assuming this game is as detailed as the A-10 sim I might have to get it.
