Proprietary, ultra-high speed 3-D polygon-based rendering engine provides an exceptional sense of motion and detail--up to 20 FPS in high-resolution, 1024 x 768!
Extensive rolling 3D terrain. Atmospheric effects like sun glare, haze, cloud-layers, dynamic sky illumination and even an accurate celestial sphere at night, create uncanny realism simply unlike any other flight simulator.
Accurate flight dynamics closely simulate the Naval and Marine F/A-18 Hornet strike-fighter aircraft. Exceptionally detailed avionics are closely modeled to provide accurate reproduction of actual F/A-18 Hornet flight systems.
Sophisticated enemy pilot AI provides a constant challenge. They fly simulated aircraft just as you do. You must hone your pilot skills to survive.
Choose from twenty-eight combat missions in the Persian Gulf.
Exclusive multimedia training classroom provides over 90 minutes of flight and combat instruction. Includes six training missions in scenic Hawaii.
Connect up to four computers via network for multiple-player action. Includes six network missions in Arizona.
Ordnance includes the heat-seeking AIM-9L "Sidewinder," the active radar guided AIM-120 AMRAAM, the TV guided AGM-65E "Maverick," and a host of other mud-moving weaponry.
Radio voice messages from the ground and air keep you constantly aware. The tower clears you for takeoff and landing. Your wingman relays crucial battle information during aerial combat.
Perform carrier "traps" just like naval aviators. A working "Meatball" and an Instrument Landing System (ILS) help you bring it home after a successful mission. Contact the "LSO" and he'll talk you down to the "three-wire".
