Back of Box - DOS:
    The life of a seasoned starfighter pilot isn't all glory and adventure. After years of following orders and losing ships and friends, you are now the sole commander, responsible for heading up a momentous strike against your enemy's homeland - either the Empire of Kilrath or the heart of the Confederation. This war requires real strategy, not just hotshot piloting, and you have to determine where to fight, how to fight, and what ships will get the job done. In Wing Armada, you have the freedom to build your own universe, your own missions and your own campaign.

    NEVER PLAY THE SAME GAME TWICE AS YOU EXPLORE, FORTIFY AND MINE HUNDREDS OF PLANETS IN AN INFINITE NUMBER OF RANDOMLY GENERATED UNIVERSES

    MAXIMIZE YOUR FIELD OF VISION BY FLYING IN INVISIBLE COCKPIT MODE

    PIT YOURSELF AGAINST A SINISTER COMPUTER, OR USE A MODEM OR NETWORK TO COMBAT A PLAYER ACROSS THE COUNTRY


    Key Features:

  • Choose from 3 levels at play - intense dogfight scenarios, strategic search and destroy battles, or extended campaigns to destroy an opposing homeworld.
  • Pit yourself against a friend, computer, or with a friend against the computer - via modem or network.
  • Live life on the edge as a topnotch Terran or Kilrathi pilot and fly up to 10 different ships.
  • Customize taunts and controls with Armada's built in audio file integrator and keyboard configuration utility.
  • Carefully plot tactical moves to stop your enemy cold - but beware, the tides of war may swiftly turn your next move into your last!

    Die Armada ist gerüstet für die große Entscheidungsschlacht. Übernehmen Sie das Kommando. Planen Sie Ihre Angriffszüge, wählen Sie eins von 10 Raumschiffen der Konföderation oder der Kilrathi, und der Kampf kann beginnen. Origins rasante 3D-Space-Routinen katapultieren Sie direkt ins Wing-Commander-Universum.

    In Wing Commander Armada’ können Sie - dank Split-Screen, Netzwerk- oder Modem-Play - Kopf an Kopf gegen Bekannte, Verwandte oder Freunde rund um den Erdball antreten.

    Aber aufgepaßt, im Weltall geben Freunde die besten Feinde ab.
