Exhibit - Total Air War
Training mission "Vis-Ident"
The AWACS module in TAW is a great feature. It lets you view and control the air battle from the perspective of the battle commander aloft in the E-3 AWACS aircraft. The map-based interface is easy to use - all information is available at a glance, and you can query flights and order various actions using only the mouse. You must watch for developing threats, ordering flights to visually identify unknown contacts, intercept hostiles, or escort friendlies. You can also move assets to new CAP positions, order flights Back to base, or provide vectors for refueling to thirsty returning flights.
