A-10 Warthog

Developer  Janes Combat Simulations
Publisher 
About  The Flight Sim Museum sadly remembers Jane's A-10 Warthog, the best sim that never took flight.. A-10 Warthog was the greatest sim that never took flight. The crack team at Janes Combat Simulations had the rug pulled out from under their feet just before the 'Hog flew. Sim fans worldwide were bitterly disappointed when, in July 1999, Jane's announced the cancellation of the project. All we are left with are these tantalising glimpses of what might have been.

About  The sim ran as smooth as silk on Pentium 233MMX with 64 MEG of RAM. ( No 3D accelerator) and looked great. With a Banshee card the framerate seemed to double and the object detail is spectacular. Smoke trails are thicker, and the framerate doesn't seem to slow even at 1024 x 768 resolution.

Falcon 3.0
Date  1991
Platform 
Developer  Sphere Inc., Spectrum Holobyte
Publisher 
About  An iconic flight simulator, Falcon 3.0 pushed the boundaries of air combat sims. It had all the features anyone could dream of at the time and the gameplay was riveting, with dynamically generated missions. It was also demanding on hardware, needing a 486 with a maths co-processor to run the "High-Fidelity Flight Model".

Publisher 
About  Fleet Defender, released in 1994 by Microprose, was the most thorough treatment of Carrier Fleet Defense ever seen to that date on a personal computer. The graphics were VGA 320 x 200 and based on the F15 Strike Eagle III graphics engine. This sim gets about as much detail as it's possible to get out of VGA.

About  After scanning the material for this museum entry I moved with bated breath towards my P166 laptop, 3 disks in hand, all psyched up for some retro-viffing. Alas it was not to be.... there was data corruption on Disk 1 ... Aaaaaaaaaaaaagghh! ... ... never mind. In 2000 www.simhq.com sent me a copy with working disks and this time I at least got to see the menu screens!
