A-10 Tank Killer is obviously enough a flight simulation of the USAF's A-10 Thunderbolt - or Warthog as it is affectionately known by all 'Hog -Drivers'. Those of you weaned on little else but F-16s might wonder what the hell an A-10 actually is. Primarily, they are used alongside battlefield helicopters in the close air support role. They are slow enough to identify and attack ground targets but they come with high survivability and a greater weapons load than helicopters. A-10s have a distinctive shape and the largest and mast powerful gun ever mounted on an aircraft. Called the Avenger 30mm cannon, it fires depleted uranium shells at a rate of 4,200 rounds per minute. Enough to atomise a tank at 4,000 yards. It is generally rated as being 'one mean muvva'.

Ausgezeichnete englische Anleitung plus großer Poster. Im VGA-Modus eine absolute Pracht, bei CGA und EGA geht‘s aber stark abwärts. Unterstützt Maus und Joystick, eine Festplatte ist dringend zu empfehlen (4 Disks).

Although Tank Killer hasn't received a lot of hype I had heard generous amounts of praise for the PC version and was looking forward to the Amiga game. What a disappointment. As far as flight sims go it isn't too bad but when you compare it to the likes of Falcon and F-19 it just doesn't make the mark. The graphics are brilliant in places and appalling in others which sums up the whole game. A package of mixed quality that leaves me feeling that more could have been made of it. For flight sims fans only.

Wenn ein Flugzeug schon den Spitznamen "Warzenschwein" (Warthog) trägt, darf man sich keine fliegende Schönheitskönigin erwarten. Aber wenn ein Spiel der erste PC-Flugsimulator mit vollen 256 Farben war, sollte man sich auf dem "Grafikwunder" Amiga schon ein halbwegs ebenbürtige Umsetzung erwarten dürfen... Den entzückenden Beinamen verdankt die A-10 ihrem Aussehen, das halt rein nach praktischen Gesichtspunkten ausgerichtet ist und nicht nach optischen. Und in der Praxis bestreitet die A-10 nun mal keine dramatischen Luftkämpfe in schwindelerregender Höhe wie z.B. eine F-16; stattdessen wird sie vor allem zur Unterstützung der Bodentruppen eingesetzt )ähnlich wie Hubschrauber).
