Graphics

USNF was the first sim with textured sky, land and sea in SVGA. Of course the game was a slide-show on a 486 with all the graphics options on high .

Graphics resolutions were available from 320 x 200 up to 1024 x 768.! The landscape included cities, Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor (don't blow it up please!) and numerous objects such as bridges and radar towers.

The aircraft could be shown as polygons, ...with gourad shading, ....and texture mapping,..... and your choice of nose and tail art.
