COMBAT FLIGHT SIMULATOR 3
Anti-aircraft fire blankets you. Blast debris hurls toward your propeller. And you wonder why the hell you didn't join the Navy. This is ground attack - the real, gritty combat that can make or break a battle and take your life in one massive explosion. As a pilot in Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3, you fly in the historical framework of the tactical air war in northern Europe starting in mid-1943. The aircraft are at the cutting edge of technology from high-performance piston engines to jets. You can take the role of pilot or even fly as an air gunner or bomb aimer with the RAF, Luftwaffe or USAAF.
The skill and perseverance you and your squadron or Staffel bring to each battle can alter the tactical situation and the timeline of the campaign. This open-ended and flexible campaign means you can influence events, alter history, and extend the timeline to add new technology to your arsenal. How you handle these tactical and technological advantages will determine the outcome. In Combat Flight Simulator 3, it's 1943, and no one knows what's going to happen...

The summer of 1940 marked Britains darkest hour. France had fallen. Alone and apparently defenceless, we awaited the onslaught of the Luftwaffe blitzkrieg that would spell the end to the free worlds resistance. However, Hitler and his generals hadnt reckoned with the skill and courage of the RAF, and for a few desperate weeks Fighter Command held back the German air armada. The victory they earned was truly our finest hour. Now its time to scramble once again and get airborne in CFS3 Tally Ho!
