Title - Advanced Tactical Fighters

Developer - Janes Combat Simulations
Publisher - Electronic Arts
Collection - - Yes. CD ROM only, no box.
Comments - Third in the series, ATF introduced stealth and vectored thrust aircraft. It ran in DOS. A windows version was later included in Fighters Anthology. I remember the first time I booted it up on my 486 DX-66. I leapt into the Grumman X-31 and headed for the clouds. For a while I was convinced there was something wrong with the program because this aircraft just seemed too fast! Advanced Tactical Fighters was the sequel to Marine Fighters. It ran in DOS. A windows version was later included in Fighters Anthology.

Back to Baghdad
Title - Back to Baghdad
Release Date - 1996
Developer - Military Simulations Inc.
Publisher -
Comments - Back to Baghdadwas an F-16 simulation set in the Gulf War (1991) . It was a DOS sim with claims to high fidelity of flight model and weapons systems modelling and was priced about 30% higher than other PC sims at the time. The publishers Military Simulations Inc. went on to specialise in military sims and released no more products for the home market. It was unique in that it supported a second monitor for the radar display - and this while running in DOS !

I also use this sim as a good example of the evolution of 3-D graphics techniques in the early 1990's, including Bridges in the Janes Fighters series and Airports in the Janes 'Fighters' series
