# Crashes when changing Falcon settings sometimes. - Fixed
# Commander assets do not always fire/work - Fixed
# Modify HUD in TV guided missile view that makes viewing difficult on maps like Dragon Valley - Fixed
# Army hardware takes too long to spawn on Wake Island - Investigating
# Mouse control didn't work in Special Forces - Fixed
# Falcon controls overwrote on every map load in Special Forces - Fixed
# Highway Tampa crashes at 14% - Fixed

- Additional support for Windows Vista.
- Added Highway Tampa as a required map.
- Added a new map called Operation Blue Pearl.
- Changes made to both the J10 and F35B to make them more balanced. Please note that the J10 is a superior dogfighter to the F35B and as such these two aircraft will never be equally matched.
- AA targeting tweaked to make it more effective.
- Added checks to prevent "runway grieving".
- Various changes made to prevent cheating.
- Tweaked the hit detection, hits will be more accurate to the model.
