Strike Fighters WOW!

This sim is Flight Unlimited with guns, rockets and bombs. Like FU3 it is amazing in that it's simplicity is what makes it fun and realistic at the same time. These are Viet Nam era aircraft and not very advanced avionics. The Graphics are the best by far, even with my old trusty Voodoo 4500. It also plays very well at 1020 x 768 on my Celeron 900. While all the gauges and indicators work, there are no working switches. That's OK because it gives you time to look around using your mouse to control head movement. You can also zoom in and out to get a better view of you instruments. It's all very fluid giving you the effect of leaning to get that better look. ATC control is there to vector you to your target, and it has basic interaction. External views are amazing in both detail and lighting effects. The pilots(and RIO depending on the plane) are always turning there heads sreaching the skys for hostile aircraft. A patch is promised soon to address some bugs and gameplay. Where it is the most promising is that it is an open architecture to allow official and user add-ons such as new aircraft(using gmax), aircraft skins(just a single bitmap), and terrain. If you remember what FU3 was like out of the box verses now, like shooting and blowing up stuff, and look toward the future add-ons, then you may very well love this sim!These pictures are reduced because there are so many, sorry about the quality.

CORRECTION: The skins are not a single bitmap, but not much more than that and much easier to import than FU3.

It's a beautiful sim, and the flight model is fun, but severly flawed in some areas. But, fun, and the early radar and heat seeking weapons systems are a great contrast to the newer stuff.Dan
