I love aircraft and I'm looking to buy a flight sim on my nice new computer, Flanker 2.0. The problem is I've heard it's a very difficult game, even for experts! Im 15 and I can play Comanche vs. Hokum no bother, in fact I've almost finished all 3 campaigns. Would Flanker 2.0 be suitable? Is it really as hard as everyone says? Comanche Hokum was supposed to difficult to grasp but I picked it up in a few hours. (And yes the settings were on realistic)
Thanks for listening.

PS does the Flanker in the game carry the R-77/AA-12?

Flanker 2 is a great sim. It has a rather steep learning curve, but I believe you'll find it worth the effort. You will need to get used to "Russian Style" avionics. I enjoyed the different "feel" from Western aircraft. The R-77 is available. Quite deadly I might say. Good luck & have fun.

King Kobra,

it is challenging, yes. I play it since a year and I'm still by no means an expert now. I think, the close quarter dogfight AI is the best in business. The good news is you can easily set up a 1 vs 1 versus opponents of increasing difficulty. Also with 2.5 you can scale down the previously deadly missiles to easy-medium-hard settings.
So, yeah, a steep learning curve, but it's scalable.
I would go for it just for the flying alone. F2 has the best feeling of being in the air of all sims ! And with 2.5 you get a Mig-29, air to air refueling, landings on a moving carrier and more.
BTW, I play it completely in Russian, stick and throttle and Masterpilot have Russian labels and I speak the Wingmen commands in Russian using Game Commander. Great fun !

Thanks for the advice. I've ordered it today, It might not run on my current machine (my new will be here in a week or so, it's a K-7 1200 and GForce 2 Ultra combo!! ) but what the hell.
Im looking forward to it, but my exams are in a few weeks! lol
