Description

Flight simulator for the Soviet SU-25 attack jet. A wide range of bombs and munitions are included (from cluster bombs to rockets to guns).

Includes three sets of missions (each set takes place in a year, from 1991 to 1993). Missions range from attacking tanks and troops to attacking bridges and other buildings. Although the missions can be played separately, played in order they form a storyline about the crumbling Soviet regime.

This simulator uses a true 3D engine, but the flight model is not 6DOF.

Trivia

This game was an internal challenge at Electronic Arts. Could they do a fun game in 14 weeks (to show at CES)? Rick Tiberi, Scott Cronce, Connie Braat, Cynthia Hamilton and Paul Grace built the game in a headlong race to the finish line. They got it done, and in spite of tepid sales (not enough time to market it), it made a good profit.
