Exhibit: Strike Aces / Fighter Bomber (1989)

Commodore Amiga version

" A fantastic choice of aircraft to fly and an original and refreshing campaign scenario to fly in - a NATO bombing competition held in the USA.

The graphics weren't outstanding by todays standards, but they did the job and the aircraft looked the part, and the game played at a respectable speed. You could fly the following :

  • F-4E Phantom ( USAF )
  • AJ-37 Viggen ( Swedish AF )
  • MiG-27 Flogger ( Soviet AF )
  • Tornado GR1 ( RAF )
  • Tornado IDS ( German Marine )
  • F-15E Strike Eagle ( USAF )
  • F-111 ( USAF )

The 'aggressors' were also a mix and included F-14s, Foxhounds, Mirage 2000s, Flankers and Fulcrums - it was a shame you couldn't fly these ones though! You also had a mission builder, which was simple to use, but gave good results.

The aircraft had different flight dynamics - some faster than others at low level, some better turners on so on. I remember the Viggen lived up to its name ( the Swedish word 'viggen' translates to 'thunderbolt' in English ) - that kite could out climb everything else and went like a rocket, and was good for dogfighting too. "

MiGMan thanks Rob "Bomber" Henderson for these recollections.
