Almost tempted to re-install the bundle, but only slight improvements for aircraft puts me off. Mapping functions to my joystick is a bugger with conflicts everywhere. The default mapping is absurdly done.
I wonder if the original "Arma II" training missions have been fixed, as they're actually more player-friendly than those in "Arrowhead".
