Top Gun Hornet's Nest was released in 1998
by Microprose. It continued the story of Top Gun the movie with your
character playing the part of Maverick . The first
noticeable difference is that you are flying an F/A-18
Hornet rather than the F-14 Tomcat. The missions include
more Air - to - Ground, reflecting the Hornet's dual role.
This is probably the most challenging aspect of the sim.... knowing when to change focus from Ground targets to Air threats.
From the very first mission you have to cope with attacking ships and MiG-29's at the same time!
I'd recommend spending some time in the Instant Action module practising using the Radar / Threat Indicator display to sort out missiles and targets.
In mission 2 you have to race the clock as you fly as fast as you dare up a narrow canyon to take out a missile site.Each mission is introduced with a video clearly demonstrating how to achieve the objectives.
