The Korean War - when the peak of piston-engined technology fought against fledgling jet fighters and the first all-jet duels took place. Now you can pilot the aircraft and fight the battles from this memorable period in flying history, when the eyes of the world were focused on the skies over Korea and the Sea of Japan.
Propellers against jets - from the last of the propeller-driven fighting machines like the P-51 Mustang, IL-2 Sturmovik and Fairey Firefly to the early jets, including the MiG-15, F-86 Sabre and F-80C Shooting Star. Take your choice from fourteen different aircraft that bridged the gap between past and present. There's even a Bell 47 M.A.S.H. helicopter and the awesome B-29 Superfortress
Mountains, valleys, rivers and seas - the latest mesh terrain scenery techniques are used to faithfully reproduce the entire landscape of North and South Korea including all offshore Islands down to Sushima and up to China and the Yula River
On the tarmac or on the deck - fly from authentic airbases at Pyongyang and Seoul or from two expertly detailed carriers, the USS Essex and USS Leyte, lying off the east and west coasts of Korea and surrounded by their support ships
Fly a mission or fight a campaign - you can join the struggle between North and South Korea with 20 new missions and two major campaigns. Key cities in the region, road and railway targets are all faithfully modelled and form strategic targets in the conflict. Even the famous bridges on the Yula River are there in all their glory - until you attack them, that is!
Eyes, ears and seat of the pants - fully animated control surfaces, undercarriages and even moving pilots' heads combine with carefully reproduced sounds to take you back in time to the early 1950s. From the rumble of the Corsair's Pratt & Whitney radial to the roar of the Klimov jet in the MiG, the authentic sounds and carefully developed flight models immerse you in the thrill of flying. Whether you're cruising at high altitude in a Superfortress or nudging the edge of the sound barrier in a Sabre, you'll find out what it was like to pilot the machines from a turning point in aviation history
The pen is mightier than the sword - a fully detailed manual is included with excellent notes and descriptions of each aircraft as well as a historical background to the Korean War.
