New Target Korea Add-on
11:09 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Targetware has announced the inclusion of another add-on in the 'official' list of user-created mods for their upcoming massively multiplayer flight sim, Target Korea. The game is still in beta, but already the lucky testers are starting to produce their own content for the game. Targetware is banking this feature, along with many others, will give them an edge over other online flight sims out there. Here's more info from the press release on the recent addition:

Today, Targetware announced certification of a second Target Korea aircraft
skin developed by Mike "Oil Can" Caulk. "The Huff" is an F-86F-1 flown by
Lt. Jim Thompson of the 51st FIW and it is perhaps one of the most
colorfully adorned Sabres ever to fly the skies of Korea. Lt. Thompson
encountered a particularly well flown Chinese MiG-15 decorated with a green
dragon. Upon shooting it down and returning to base, he had one painted on
his Sabre, thus "The Huff". The aircraft flew with this paint scheme in the
late Spring of 1953. Actual in-game (un-retouched) screenshots of his
unique checkered tail Mig killer of the 51st FIW, may be viewed at
Be sure to head over and check out the screen shots, as they do look really nice. If you're wondering what Target Korea is all about, they also give a nice synopsis here:
The Targetware engine blends an exceptionally secure and unique development
architecture together with direct "hands-on" community participation, in
order to create a 250+ player on-line environment, which essentially has
been designed by the customer base itself. With an open architecture
approach to graphics, flight models, terrains and even servers, Targetware
combines extensibility and customization with a high-fidelity flight
simulator, that insures that everyone is playing by the same rules.
Targetware is the "branding" identifier for the engine and the series of
products that are being built under it. For example, the first of the
series will be titled Target Korea and will feature the Mig 15bis versus the
F86f-30 Sabre. Target Korea is currently undergoing closed beta testing and
is expected to be simultaneously available in open beta for both Windows and
Macintosh systems within 90 days.
We'll keep you posted as more info on Target Korea becomes available. Also stay tuned as the beta opens up to the general public later this spring.
