Computer Pilot magazine  
about:   Volume 13 was available as a digital download. At 600 pages, it was on special in November 2009 at USD $4.99. To my mind this is an excellent example of a publisher who understands the dynamics of e-publishing. PC Aviator is taking advantage of the economies of e-publishing to deliver great value to the customer with this product.   country:   Australia

Computer & Video Games magazine (1981)  
about:   Check out the classic British cover art on this early games mag, very remiscent of the work done on mags such as "Eagle" and "2000A.D.".   Tom Moloney

Deadliest Warrior  
about:   A comparison of classic warriors and fighting styles achieved with the aid of weapons experts and weaponeers, professional martial artists and trainers, biomechanical engineers and statistical modelling. In my opinion though, the simulation vastly underestimates the variables of tactics in these encounters. For example, a Samurai is trained for precision and would tend to avoid a head on clash of forces where possible.

about:  

The AJS-37 Viggen is a Swedish double-delta supersonic attack aircraft from the late Cold War. It was the backbone of the Swedish Air Force during the Cold war, serving as the main attack and anti-ship platform. The AJS is the 90�s upgrade of this 70's era aircraft, adding several advanced weapons and systems functionalities. The aircraft was designed around the pilot, with an excellent man-machine interface, supporting the pilot through the smart use of autopilot systems, radar and HUD symbology in order to deliver the ordnance onto targets from treetop level with high speed attack runs.

The aircraft is armed with multiple weapon systems ranging from programmable stand-off weapons such as the RB-15F antiship missile to the BK90 Cluster munitions dispenser to various bombs, rockets and missiles for a wide range of target types. The aircraft can also carry gun pods and the Sidewinder series of infrared-guided missiles for air defence and self-protection purposes.

about:  

Developed in the years immediately following World War II, the MiG-15bis was a first-generation jet fighter designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich design bureau of the Soviet Union.

The MiG-15bis is a single engine, swept-wing jet that saw over 15,000 copies produced. The MiG-15 gained fame in the skies over Korea where it battled the F-86 Sabre and other allied aircraft. It proved an excellent match to the Sabre, and it often came down to the skill of the pilot that determined who made it home and who was left dangling from a parachute.

Having an excellent thrust-to-weight ratio and good climbing characteristics, the MiG-15bis was also armed with two NR-23 23mm cannons and a single, powerful N-37 37mm cannon. Not surprisingly, it is considered by many as one of the deadliest fighters of the era.

The MiG-15bis model featured in the simulation is an upgraded model from the original, powered by the more powerful Soviet-produced VK-1 engine in place of the original British Rolls Royce Nene-I (II).

about:  

The MiG-21bis is a delta wing, supersonic, fighter-interceptor jet aircraft. Much like the AK-47 became the everyman's rifle, the MiG-21 has been operated by more than 40 countries worldwide, and has enjoyed the longest production run of any modern jet fighter to date. The MiG-21, in all of its variants, has fought in wars stretching all the way from the Vietnam War in the 1960's to the modern day Syrian Civil War. Owing to its unique blend of versatility, ruggedness and maintainability, the MiG-21 remains in active service to this very day.

Leatherneck Simulations' recreation of the MiG-21 is, by far, the most accurate and comprehensive simulation of this supersonic jet fighter to date. The fully simulated systems, interactive cockpit, advanced flight modeling and incredible graphical fidelity come together to create a package that will provide you with the most authentic simulation possible. So strap in, and get ready to experience the rebirth of a legend.

The Gazelle is powered by a single turbine engine that is connected to three glass-fiber reinforced plastic main rotor blades with a bearingless main rotor developed by B�lkow GmbH. It is also the first helicopter which features the famous Fenestron tail rotor.

about:   But the best was yet to come..... at the back of the hangar were two full motion cockpits. Yes, that is 360 degrees of motion with a roll rate of 360 degrees per second. I had some happy aerobatic time in there with Junglist, host of ABC Television's "Good Game".

about:   One of the most important new features was left off the list - it will ship with "missions". This, I think is the cleverest thing they've done yet and will surely get a much wider audience interested in the sim, and flight sims generally.
