    In 2011, you command Stern's Wildcats, and elite squadron of mercenaries trying to fly straight in a world of deceit and violence. Pilot F-16s and an F-22 as you engage rival squadrons, third-world dictators and the armies of the dreaded IRS. This CD-enhanced version includes:

    Over 60 missions, including the expansion module Tactical Operations.

    Improved frame rate (up to twice as fast as the original floppy version), reduced disk-access time for loading missions, uninterrupted flight during missions, smarter enemy intelligence (AI) and less base memory required.

    Installation that takes less than 12 megs (as little as 1.5 megs!) of hard drive space.

    Complete digitized speech and sound effects, plus General MIDI (MPU-401 interface) music support. Every line of dialogue is spoken, both in the air and between missions on the ground.

    All-new flight options - Rudder Pedal support, Realistic Dynamics mode, and Invisible Cockpit and No-Haze options.

    Gauntlet mode - wave after wave of enemies, with final score telling you how well you did.
