He (Starg) seems to be fairly active in the steam Typhoon forum.
Is Starg then Steve Hunt or somebody else?
I was laughing as I read the "Preview article" from here from May 2001....
Andy Bush, the retired fighter pilot and beta tester for EF Typhoon, recently commented on the FM that,
"Typhoon’s flight model is better than either EF2000 or TAW and the aerodynamic influence of weight is modeled. A configuration with external tanks and stores shows a dramatic reduction in top speed, ceiling and turn rate, just as one might expect.
Like Total Air War, EF Typhoon will feature a fully dynamic campaign. In fact the campaign runs in real time and like Falcon 4.0 and Razorwork's Enemy Engaged: Comanche vs. Hokum continues to run whether you fly or not. Like Jane's USAF, you can hot swap between pilots, with the AI taking over for the aircraft you left.
"Typhoon has a dynamic air war and ground war, a resource model, and a tactical and strategic system. Layered on top of all this is a story line in a scripted event system. When events are triggered they inject new units into the dynamic system. Once these units have been passed to the campaign system the AI decides how best to use them. The important thing here is that even though events are triggered the outcome of those events is dynamic." —Don Whiteford of Rage Software
