Birds of Prey

Great sim-moments...

" The weapons were destructive to any object, no matter what the device or target. I have witnessed a Forger get hit AFTER launching from a carrier by a Mk83 slick released by a B-1B Lancer."

... attention to detail...

" Air density - this caused problems with many aircraft engines. Low level, the afterburner could instantly kick in, but get it above, say 25,000ft and you may have to wait several seconds or more for it to open up."

... a great lineup of flyable aircraft...

F-22 Interceptor

F-22 Interceptor - 1991. F-22 Interceptor - 1991.

Ray Cooksey drew my attention to this Sega Genesis sim which was written by Edward Lerner, who also wrote Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer.

F-117A Stealth Fighter

F-117A Stealth Fighter by Microprose was a landmark sim.

F-117A Stealth Fighter has been referred to as "the mother of all sims" due to the many innovations it presented and the atmospheric way the sim is presented. It set standards of gameplay which have probably never been exceeded.
