Wow is an understatement. I was assuming this would be another lame 'demo'.
This was incredible, though!

The should've titled it "Pecking Order": The Tank kills the Hummer... then
the Apache kills theTank... then the Fighter Jet kills the Apache...
Finally the SurfaceToAir takes down the Jet.

Damn! There was no doubt BF2 is one of the most highly anticipated
games of 2005, now even more so. Shhhh, don't tell anybody but you can
go to http://www.filefront.com and click on the Videos menu item to the
left for no-registration/no-wait video downloads as an alternative to
fileplanet.

BF2 look's like Joint Ops on steroids. ;) 

One of the gaming magazines has a preview of the game. They got to play it
(not sure if it was Alpha, Beta,...gamma). One interesting feature was the
Team Leader. He can call up satellite passes, or drones, and get
video/photos of the battlefield which can then be used to pass on info to
teammates or call in an artillery strike.

I wonder if they're including a single player component to this game; and
if so, how good it's going to be.

Thanks for the link. I'm sure the sound effects will have been beefed up
for the trailer, and that always helps overall impact, but that's still a
very impressive bit of footage.

Much though I enjoy serious flight & combat sims, the balance of gameplay
and just enough hardware simulation in BF1942 always made me smile, and
this looks very promising.

That shows a lot of the new features nicely, I am very much looking
forward to BF2, but the Explosive trailer is much clearer, although it
has been processed by the games replay feature.

The clip make's it look like this game is going to be a frag fest. ;) 
Tanks blowing up. Enemy soldiers getting tossed into the air.

I was wondering why anyone in an FA-18 would fly so low to attack ground
troops? But I guess you got to get down low to spot the enemy. At least
in this sim. I wonder what kind of avionics are available to the pilots in
this game? Eyeball....

Like BF1942 then? Good.

I don't know how it works in the game, but in reality you fly low to
avoid radar detection, to launch surprise attacks and generally scare
the willies out of the enemy.

Some of the BF42 and BFV pilots are good enough to regularly take out troops
by hitting them with their wings.

While that was the standard plan of attack prior to the Gulf War, pilots
soon learned that it wasn't safe below 10,000 ft. During the early stages
of the first Gulf War, pilots thought that by going low, they could hit the
target and escape quickly. They soon found out otherwise. Have you read
Strike Eagle or A10 Warthog? Both are excellent books on air combat during
the first Gulf War.

I guess standard procedure has changed since I last saw action in a
jet fighter ;-)

I did... but then I thought, "Maybe he's smiling cause it's been soooooo
loooooong ago that he was in?" :) 

Oh, speaking of air combat, check out the A10 Warthog book; it's a great
read. Here's one example. The A10 pilots got to Saudi Arabia and wanted
to know at what height could they fly over the enemy troops without being
heard? Since this info wasn't in any of the tech manuals, the pilots took
off and started to fly over their fellow pilots. They kept raising their
altitude until they were no longer heard.

That became their min fly over for some combat missions.

Or the time that the mission target planners walked in and handed them a
SEAD mission and told them it was just going to be them; no Weasels for
support.

I really don't know much about this stuff, but aren't Warthogs the
tank busters? I didn't think they were usually used at low level.

My only relevant experience was when I was walking in the country
about 6 months ago and two fighter jets came screaming over me at
about 100ft and I only heard them coming about a second or two before
they arrived.

Sorry to butt in. M6 motorway in Cumbria, UK, goes through a steep
valley. Driving through there recently and two jets come from behind
and over my car hugging the terrain. Sound followed a second or two
behind them. Scared me so much I damned near ran the car off the road.

The A10 was orignal suppose to be used as close air support with the ground
forces. And it was designed to fly high and drop bombs, or come in low and
strafe enemy tanks with the 30mm GAU-8/A seven-barrel Gatling gun. This
gun could open most tanks up like a tuna can.

During the first Gulf War, the A10 pilots requested to be used along with
the rest of the available aircraft. A good thing too since there were just
too many targets out there. And the A10 become a
multi-fighter-bomber-recon-SEAD-Scud Huntering.... badass plane.
