Comments - NATO Fighters by Janes Combat Simulations and Electronic Arts allowed you to fly over 100 military aircraft from the 1950's era to tomorrow's superfighters, including the F-117A Stealth Fighter. NATO Fighters

NATO required Advanced Tactical Fighters to run. It has since been ported to Windows 95 (yay!) and released as part of Fighters Anthology. (Check out my huge guide to these sims).

Player aircraft added to the Advanced Tactical Fighters lineup were:

As well, you were now able to fly any aircraft in the sim - over 100 different types! This was the biggest line-up of flyable aircraft ever seen in a combat and has yet to be equalled.

Of course, to achieve this number, many aircraft shared cockpit art and there were a few boo-boos made in the aircraft data. I remember the F-111 having only 3,000 lbs of fuel as a notable gaffe... it actually holds 3,000 GALLONS ! (about 18,000 lbs)

Corrections to aircraft data and the ability to fly any aircraft had been available for a couple of years thanks to the work of 3rd party (fans) utilities that ran under Windows. (The sim ran in DOS).
