    TL;DR
    I've been working on this project on and off for the last several years. Rather than continue working on it in silence I have decided to go against the grain and release a pre-alpha demo. I'll be updating the demo as development progresses to gain further feedback and improve the experience.

    Its been (almost) two years, while development has been on and off (mostly off), work continues.

    Here are some gifs.
    Cockpit views (5.93mb) - Front, side and rear. There is now an actual cockpit hatch so the pilot is no longer sucking vacuum.

    Flak (3.44mb) - Just like WC1/Wc2 (kinda)

    Radar (402kb) - The best radar design ever

    Midigo transport escorted by light fighters (15.8mb) - Equivalent to the Salthi/Dralthi fighters
