A tough brief

Strike Aces or Fighter Bomber Strike Aces or Fighter Bomber Strike Aces or Fighter Bomber
Exhibit: Strike Aces / Fighter Bomber (1989)

Developer:
Publisher: Activision and Accolade
Platform: Atari ST, Commodore Amiga and PC
Collection:
Comments: The sim was set in a bombing competition inspired by Gen. Curtis LeMay's training events. It featured an unusual mix of flyable aircraft: F-4 Phantom , F-15E Strike Eagle, F-111 Aardvark, MiG-27 Flogger, RAF and Luftwaffe Tornado and the Saab Viggen.

How's this for a tough mission brief :
  • All enemy targets must be destroyed.
  • You start with low internal fuel
  • Due to length of mission, you may require air-air refuelling twice.
  • Pick up secret plans from specified airport on Rwy36 or Rwy36L and deliver them to other specified airport
  • Fly down the 'tunnel of death' and also destroy all SAM's in the 'tunnel'.
  • Land back at base on any Rwy.
  • Warning, a 10min timer may start at any time during the mission - the mission must be completed before the timer stops.


  • Tough enough ??? This was the sort of challenge posed by Activision's 1990 sim Strike Aces or Fighter Bomber
