Comments: The NATO codename for the Sturmovik is FrogFoot... who picks these names?? ...I know, a committee... and Ian Boys tells me that the Russian codename Sturmovik translates as The Assaulter or The Attacker and is used both of the Su-25 (and earlier the IL-2) in particular and of ground attack aircraft in general. The Su-25 has been sadly neglected by game designers... the next one appeared as a footnote in NATO FightersNATO Fighters.

Hands up all those who want a new Su-25 sim !! ... mmm, not probably enough unfortunately, considering we can't even get an A-10 Warthog sim, and that aircraft is a household name compared to the Frogfoot.

This sim probably runs well on a 386, it screams along on a 486 or above. You'll need a utility such as mo'slo to run it on a Pentium. - MiGMan (ca. 1999)

Hints

HINT: "I think this is overall the most enjoyable flight sim I have ever played from a gameplay standpoint. Using my Pentium 133, if I pressed the "T" key (which is Time Compression key in the game), then it allows my plane to lift-off -- try it, it worked every time for me! And, once lifted off, you can set the Time Compression "T" "off" and continue with a totally normal flight mission!
MiGMan thanks Mark for this hint.
