    STRIKE COMMANDER
    ARCADE ACTION – FLIGHT SIMULATOR

    THE FEW THE PROUD…
    THE WELL-ARMED



    In the year 2007, the global power structure has been shattered by debt and the thirst for precious oil. Bled dry by taxes, state after state has seceded, leaving the U.S. a fragmented shell of its former glory. Japan and OPEC are the major world powers, and multinational corporations have supplanted countries as the supreme political entities.

    In STRIKE COMMANDER you’ll command Stern’s Wildcats, an elite squadron of mercenaries trying to fly straight in a world of deceit and violence. You’ll pilot a variety of fighter aircraft, including the Harrier and the F22 Lightning 2, as you engage rival squadrons, renegade third-world dictators, neo-nazis, and the armies of the dreaded IRS, all in the service of Corporation and Country!

    Plunge into STRIKE COMMANDER, the Interactive Movie! And get ready to glide through cinematically structured scenes in which you play a part.

  • Witness the most powerful 3-D system ever written for a PC, featuring RealSpace (TM), a flexible computer environment utilizing realtime bitmapped images, gouraud-shaped textured-mapped polygonal objects, fractal terrain and atmospheric hazing to produce visuals of unparalleled realism!

  • Pilot four different fighters against more than 15 different types of enemy aircraft, from Chinook helicopters to F-15s.

  • Struggle with and against characters whose distinctive personalities evolve through compelling storylines, bringing the STRIKE COMMANDER universe to life before your eyes!

  • Strap yourself into the user-friendly cockpit featuring an interface that makes STRIKE COMMANDER one of the most readily-accessible flight simulators of all time!

    * Music boards highly recommended for IBM/compatibles:
    Roland MT-32 or LAPC-1, Ad Lib, Sound Blaster.
