    Recommended Flight sims

    I'll hopefully be getting a whole new PC outfit soon, and was wondering which flight sims you lot can recommend.

    I've got the following:

    Combat Flight Simulator
    Attack Squadron
    Fighter Ace v.3.5
    Red Baron 3D
    Fighter Squadron
    Flying Corps
    Battle of Britain (NOT Rowan's)
    Luftwaffe Commander, and
    Airfix Dogfighter.

    I've been keen to try out Il-2 for some time, but my current piece of crap wouldn't be able to handle it.

    So, any recommendations will be looked into fully!

    Il-2 Sturmovik - Forgotten Battles and Lock On ("Fly The Best Modern Jet Fighters") are currently 19.99 or two for 30 at Virgin.
    I know this since I bought Il-2 and am still trying to work out how to drop the bombs whilst not using a four button mouse or joystick...

      Flood got it square on, those two are by far the best flight sims out.

      Just thjink about battle of britain due in Q4 2005, that is going to be mind blowing

        I've got the following :

        FS 2002 Professional
        FS 2004
        Lock On
        IL-2 Forgotten Battles AEP
        FALCON 4.0
        Combat Filght Simulator
        Combat Flight Simulator 3

        But I don't like very much Combat Flight Simulator 3. The others are quite good
        But be careful, Lock On requests a very high system

          IL2 FB -- including AEP if you want to try you hand at online gaming.

          Lockon -- for the modern stuff

          FS2004 -- for less violent trips and the associated sea of brilliant addons

          Battlefield 1942 -- not a true flight sim, but great fun

          Combat Flight sim 3 -- if you get bored of IL2 (as if)

          Secret Weapons over Normandy -- for some light hearted hollywood inspired action

          Pacific fighters should be out soon, Fair strike for some rotary combat although I haven't looked at this for some time.
