Fighters Anthology (1998) brought the DOS sims US Navy Fighters- Marine Fighters- Advanced Tactical Fighters- NATO Fighters- and the Windows sim US Navy Fighters '97 into one collection running under Windows.

Fighters Anthology (1998) is usually referred to as a "survey sim" - meaning that it covers a range of aircraft but doesn't go into great depth on each one. Well that may be so but I for one never ran out of interesting things to do in the series. At one time I wrote a set of emergency checklists - and at one time or another every one of these problems happened to me! It was fun finding out just how many ways the programmers had provided to break the aircraft!

Who can forget that screeching, irritating whine when you threw a turbine blade?

Jet Fighter 3.

Jetfighter III - released in 1997 - was probably the last of the great DOS based Combat Flight Sims. The speed of play and level of accurate detail in the topography is hard to match even today.

Back in 1997 3D FX cards were hitting the market. The quantum leap in graphics capabiliies this provided to the average gamer can't be underestimated. But this many years on it is difficult to remember those first steps.

My first impression was that I could "reach into the screen and grab the planes!" They didn't look so much like real aircraft, as much as flying model aircraft. It was as if my collection of scale models had escaped into my computer !
