The sequel to Wings of Honour
pits the player as either a WWI pilot of a special squadron of the Allied forces, The Angels of Annihilation, or of Jasta 11, the squadron of Manfred von Richthofen, better known as the Red Baron.
There are three main game modes: new game, free flight and multiplayer. New game starts either an Allied or German campaign. Free flight lets the player fly over any selected map without facing enemies. In multiplayer mode, up to 10 players can dogfight in any selected map.
During the campaign missions, players can sometimes select which aircraft to fly (including a German Zeppelin in some missions). The aircraft is controlled with the mouse for direction and shooting and the keyboard for rolling and selecting weapons. Each airplane is equipped with one main cannon (fired with the left mouse button) and two secondary weapons: bombs and rockets (selected with the 2 and 1 keys, respectively, and fired with the right mouse button). When firing bombs a ground aim will appear, showing where the bomb will fall. While flying players will also be able to give orders to their wing-men, telling them to help them, follow or disengage (pressing F9, F10 and F11 respectively).
There are 5 cameras available: cockpit view, external view, internal view (cockpit-less), spin camera and fly by camera. Players can also control the pilots view with a free look mode.
