If people pop over to shockwave productions, or to simhq.com, you'll see all about the game. It was heavily built on top of the original engine of the Rowan simulation. The release intially had some problems, partly because shockwave were so ambitious and had to build on top of a pre-existing engine. They are also extremely good at customer support, and the problems were soon ironed out. It's now considered very stable and an extrememly good and respected flight simulator and wargame combo. It has full implimentation of Track IR 6 DOF, and shockwave are a company who also produce many respected add-ons for MS Flight Simulator. They are especially well known for the quality of their flight models, their good graphics, attention to detail and also REALLY cool explosions! Also, they're friendly and many initially worked on the project voluntarily during the course of improving the original game, and so have a lot of experience, as well as being fans themselves.
Matrix have made a brilliant partnership (again!)
