So I'm guessing that by now most people have seen the latest devblog by BI. I myself am actually quite excited for the new jets DLC, it looks great. One thing I noticed though when reading the latest blogpost was something written on the side of the new NATO jet, called the Black Wasp II. Here's the image. Right underneath the wing, above the word NAVY, it says "USS Freedom". Now anyone who likes flying aircraft in Arma like myself, probably knows of the the brilliant F/A-18X mod that was originally released by John Spartan and Saul here on the forums, and is now maintained by TeTeT if I'm not mistaken. However before they handed over that project they were talking about working on something "big", and they teased us with an image of a fictional next generation aircraft carrier which they called, you guessed it, the USS Freedom. So I'm sort of putting this together: 1. They stopped working on the F-18X mod which was called the "Black Wasp" and the new NATO jet by BI is called the "Black Wasp II". 2. Before they left they teased us by saying they were hard at work on something "kinda big". 3. Before that they showed interest in making an aircraft carrier for Arma 3 named the "USS Freedom" a name that has now resurfaced on the side of a new DLC jet. 4. In the new devblog video Jay Crowe stated that they have worked with third party developers from B01 studio's. Which suggests to me that Spartan and Saul now actually have their own production company (awesome :D) 5. In the same video you can clearly see there's motion capture work being done for flight deck crew. Now ofcourse I don't want to jump to conclusions, but if you'd ask me John Spartan and Saul have started their own little game company, and were employed by BI to work on the Jets DLC. All if which fantastic, but I'd like to know if there's anyone here that can actually confirm/debunk this.
