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 mission brief :

  1. All enemy targets must be destroyed.
  2. You start with low internal fuel
  3. Due to length of mission, you may require air-air refuelling twice.
  4. Pick up secret plans from specified airport on Rwy36 or Rwy36L and deliver them to other specified airport
  5. Fly down the 'tunnel of death' and also destroy all SAM's in the 'tunnel'.
  6. Land back at base on any Rwy.
  7. 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 Strike Aces or Fighter Bomber.
