Australia signs up for Joint Strike Fighters.

Australia has just signed up for 8 billion dollars worth of Joint Strike Fighters. The RAAF would probably prefer the F-22 Lightning... but hey... that's a really expensive aircraft!

F-22 roundup

A survey of F-22 simulations in the Flight Sim Museum

F-29 Retaliator by Digital Image Design
F-29 Retaliator was released in 1991 and ran very fast, even on a 386 25Mhz which was a typical machine of the day. I remember trying again and again to strafe a train whilst travelling at about mach 1.2.. it never occured to me to slow down! (Early days!)

F22 Lightning 2
F22 Lightning II was one of the first "good looking" sims and an early 3DFX sim. It hit the shelves in 1996.
