about  This sim was the successor to the wildly popular Chuck Yeager's Air Combat and started a series that ran to the end of the 1990's. Get an overview of the series in the Fighters Anthology (1998) exhibit.

The combat-focussed gameplay was enhanced by the atmospheric and user friendly interface. The ability to tweak most aspects of the sim from the graphics to mission waypoints and loadouts made you feel in control without overwhelming you with detail.

It still remains a model of good interface design. The first mission of the Ukraine campaign remains for many fans a reminder of just how atmospheric a sim can be.

Check out the videos, showing the entire first mission from briefings, through mission planning, arming, carrier takeoff in the F-14, intercept and carrier landing.
