Lock On: Modern Air Combat, or simply LOMAC, is a flight simulator video game which is the follow-up to the flight Flanker 1.x to 2.x game series. The game mainly involves air-to-ground and air-to-air combat with certain optional roles like anti-radiation/pinpoint strikes, aerobatics, or anti-ship strikes. Players can fly seven aircrafts such as Su-33, Su-25, Su-27, F-15C, Mig-29C, Mig-29A, and A-10A.
