Wings of Fury
Back of Box - DOS (US)
In Wings of FuryTM you're the hunter and the hunted. A lone warrior flying a fighting machine - the U.S. Navy's F6F Hellcat.
Powered by a Pratt and Whitney engine cranking out over 2,000 horses, your Hellcat is loaded for bear. 6 Browning M-2 machine guns fire at a combined rate of 4,000 rounds per minute. An arsenal of 100-pound bombs and high velocity aerial rockets deliver the punch of a destroyer's broadside.
At 21,600 feet, your ear drums numb from the roar of the 18 cylinders hurling you forward at 355 knots. Your palms sweat. And your senses dance with anticipation - danger lurks above and below.
Missions will vary as you boom from the deck of a flattop. You'll engage in dogfights with nimble enemy fighters that are ready to shoot it out anytime, anywhere. You'll embark on search and destroy missions against antiaircraft guns and machine gun nests on numerous occupied islands. And then, just as you breathe a sigh of relief, you'll stare straight down the barrel of an oncoming enemy destroyer. Whatever the mission, the danger is real and your opponents formidable.
Wings of Fury is for anyone who has dreamed of flight, honor, and the mighty Hellcat - both the ace and the rookie. So climb into the cockpit, grab the stick, and prepare for action Brøderbund-style. You have your orders, a fight is close at hand.
