    flieh.
    kraft.

    Sie rasen durch den Himmel, schneller als der Schall und das 300 Fuß über dem gegnerischen Territorium. Tempo bedeutet Überleben, der kleinste Fehler das Ende. Fliegen Sie eines der gefährlichsten Flugzeuge der US Air Force, entwickelt vom Jane's Expertenteam, ausgerüstet mit realistischen USAF-Daten und getestet von USAF-Piloten. Fliegen Sie - im Einzel- oder Mehrspieler-Modus - knallharte Einsätze durch den gesamten Luftraum in einer der derzeit authentischsten Flugsimulationen. JANES: F-15: Die totale Luftüberlegenheit.

Computer Gaming World, March 1998:

    The sky is your playground. Be the bully.



    Jane's F-15 puts you behind the stick of military aviation's most lethal strike fighter. This Desert Storm champion took out 36 bridges, destroyed 48 SCUD missiles, and laid waste to nearly 500 armored vehicles. Now, Jane's has modeled every aspect of the fearsome F-15 with precision, from the advanced targeting systems to the 12 tons of destructive fury riding its belly. Strap yourself in and pick a fight.
