Their Finest Hour: The Battle of Britain

The Battle of Britain. Up Close and Personal.
One pilot described a World War II dogfight "like being on the inside of a beehive." And that's just what it feels like to play Their Finest Hour: The Battle of Britain. The new air combat simulator from Lucasfilm Games that's keeping simulation buffs and action gamers alike on the edge of their seats.
Their Finest Hour includes all the acclaimed features of our Battlehawks, 1942. Plus a few new twists.
The Realism Is Unreal.
From the moment you pull back on the throttle, Their Finest Hour grips you with near-photographic realism of aircraft, smoke, terrain, and flying debris. To really get your adrenalin pumping, we've added a cacophony of roaring engines, chattering machine guns, and thundering explosions.
How's That Again?
Want to show your friends how you erased that Flying Pencil with fancy deflection shooting? Their Finest Hour lets you save your proudest combat performances to disk. And relive them in real time, fast forward, or frame by frame.
Look At Life From Both Sides Now.
Take on the Luftwaffe in a tough little RAF Hurricane or fabled Spitfire. Or test your skills at the controls of the Spitfire's nemesis, the formidable Messerschmitt 109. Pulverize ground installations from your Messerschmitt 110 fighter/bomber or your screaming Stuka. Or fly as pilot, bombardier or gunner in a Junkers 88, Dornier Flying Pencil, or Heinkel Spade.
Your success in each mission impacts the next one: knock out a radar installation today, and you'll breathe easier tomorrow. Who knows - you might even change history. And if you don't like the odds, Their Finest Hour lets you change sides.

Summer, 1940. The German war machine has humbled all of Europe - except Great Britain. Now, the mighty Luftwaffe plans to soften up Southern England for an invasion called Operation Sea Lion. And the RAF must wage a desperate defensive battle against a numerically superior foe. Graphically stunning, historically accurate, and thrillingly realistic, Their Finest Hour: The Battle Of Britain resets the stage for the air confrontation of the century.
