Another update of the hardcore simulation Falcon from Spectrum Holobyte with everything that fans of the game expect, while taking advantage of the latest computer technology. Better missions in this version, as well as being able to fly in an 8-plane force, which you can do while linked to another computer, either by dialup modem or the ever loveable null-modem!

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
Spectrum Holobyte at one time planned an additional expansion pack for Falcon 3.0
in the same vein as MiG-29: Deadly Adversary of Falcon 3.0
, Hornet: Naval Strike Fighter
, and Falcon 3.0: Operation - Fighting Tiger
that would let players fly an A-10 Warthog. Advertisements were even made and distributed with Falcon Gold
(a CD-ROM version that boxed all of the above in a single set), but the game never saw the light of day.
was one of the few games released before 1995 that specifically utilized the optional add-in math coprocessor (now standard on everything made since the 80486) for additional functionality. With a math coprocessor, the game would give the player the option of using it to improve the accuracy of the flight model and increase detail, without slowing down the simulation.
