Trivia

The game was unrealistic, but really fun to play due to its great dogfights and the control players had over the game.

Many computers at the time of its release could barely run the game because of its great graphics, complete with high-res modes and full textures.

Flyable aircraft were: F-14 Tomcat, F/A-18 Hornet, A-7 Corsair, F-22 "Lightning II" (carrier capable of course), Su-33 Flanker, and F-104 Starfighter (added as a bonus plane with no real relevance).

USNF was the precursor to EA's/Jane's Advanced Tactical Fighters, USNF'97, Fighters Anthology, etc.

Custom libraries were addons made by users, which added aircraft, weapons, vehicles, etc. and some made the game more realistic.
