This was a late addition to the long line of flight sims for the Amiga, and it was also one of the best. The whole sim was based on the 1991 Gulf War ( Desert Storm ) and you could take to the skies in either the mighty Grumman F-14A Tomcat or the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C Hornet.

Not only did you fly the missions, but you also had to control the ground war and help co-ordinate ground attacks which you could then ( if you wished ) fly close air support for.


" Close air support missions were tough and you had to be really careful not to end up with a friendly fire incident - always a possibility as the ground forces were always on the move.

The missions were done in real time, so if you took off late afternoon ( about 15:00hrs and you stayed up for a couple of hours, it would get dark). There was no Night Vision in either aircraft and night missions were a real challenge and really dark - plus don't forget the carrier landing ... " -
