Combat Helo

" Since 1996, crazed rotor-heads have wanted more of that paranoid, heavy metal, hi-tech thrill-ride that is Longbow 2.

FIVE years on and the uber simulation of helicopter combat is still as exciting as it ever was, unfortunately our desktop computers and operating systems have moved on making it difficult at best, impossible at worst, to fly our favourite sim. "

So says Richard Hawley - read about his plans to provide a Combat Helo fix for us : Combat Helo

Accessibility, immersion and F U N !

  1. Accessibility is enhanced by the simple, mouse driven interface and easy avionics.
  2. Immersion is provided by the dynamic campaign, the intelligence reports that come in via TV broadcast and internet, and the fact that you have to manage a squadron of 6 pilots through the whole campaign.
  3. Action - accessibilty and immersion = FUN!

Platform: PC
Host sim: Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2
Release Date: 2001
Developer: Blue Arrow
Publisher: Just Flight
In the Museum collection? Yes.
Comments: Containing 12 good flyable aircraft and detailed scenery, it had quite a bit to offer the discerning flyer in 2001. Even In 2006 it was still good value for those running modest PC hardware.

Luftwaffe Collection
Pearl Harbor (2001)

Developer: Flight One
Publisher: Just Flight
Comments: Expansion for Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 2 that recreates the events and atmosphere at Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.

> Pearl Harbor (2001) recreates the famous and devastating attack on the US fleet by Japanese aircraft in 1941. You can fly for either side and recreate historical as well as a few hypothetical missions.

Overall I found this to be one of the better add-ons for a quick dog-fighting fix. It also boasts the best looking palm trees I've seen outside of Ghost Recon!

  • Curtis P-40B Warhawk - cockpit - Snap Views
  • For the A6M2 Zero and F4F-4 Wildcat - the program uses the default aircraft from Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2.

- Third Wire Productions was formed by ex Electronic Arts Janes and Microprose programmer Tsuyoshi Kawahito to develop a sim focused on the "classic" jets of the 1950's and '60's.

In May 2002 the sim found a publisher and was re-named Strike Fighters Project 1.

Su27 2.5 Su27 2.5 Su27 2.5

Su-27 Flanker 2.0 was released for Xmas 1999 and this major upgrade was released as a free download in 2001. It allowed you to fly my favourite a/c - the MiG-29 Fulcrum ! It also improved 150 other features of the sim, most of which I illustrate in this exhibit.

I also wrote a very simple set of training missions which you can download.

Vietnam Air War

A complete guide to the North Vietnamese campaign -

  • NV 06 - CAP

Complete airbase comparison - some of the scenery work here is top notch !
  • Bien Hoa
  • Da Nang (US)
  • Kep (NV)
  • Kien An (NV)
  • Phuc Yen (NV)
  • Quantri
  • Tra Bong
  • USS Enterprise
  • Vinh (NV)
  • Plus some detail on the Hanoi scenery.
The aircraft - a few of the virtual cockpits are top class, with clear and functional dials. The external detail on all aircraft is good and some must represent some of the best work done in the Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2 and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 graphics engines.

A case in point is the F-8 Crusader which shows 6 stages of flaps - the first being an eye-boggling tilt of the entire wing assembly ! I have pictures of that too.
