The AH-64A Apache Advanced Attack Helicopter. Think about it for a moment. It flies at nearly 200 knots maximum. It can climb 1400 feet in a minute. It carries 16 hellfire anti-tank missiles, 1200 130mm cannon rounds, and four pods of 70mm rockets. If that isn't enough to freeze the blood, or rather vaporise it, the pilot's helmet responds to what the pilot is looking at and points the guns at it.

When Fighter Pilot was first released I had just bought my Spectrum and remember thinking what an ace simulation it was. Now, almost 2 years later, the sequel has been released and it is every bit as good as the original. My first impressions were that it looked just like Fighter Pilot but after playing it for a while, you realise that it has been improved a lot. The graphics are very good with nice representations of enemy tanks and helicopters. The only real problem that I had with the game was that it was a bit tough to get right into — but if it wasn’t so tough then it wouldn’t be so realistic. I would definitely recommend this game to anybody who is keen on simulations. Arcade addicts would find it a touch boring, perhaps.

Klares Urteil: Das Spiel ist spitze! Jeder, der Flugsimulatoren mag, sollte sich das Spiel anschaffen. Hoffen wir, daß wie beim Fighter Pilot die Anleitung noch „eingedeutscht“ wird, aber wer das Fliegen ein bißchen beherrscht, kann auch drauf verzichten.

Yes, it looks like D.I. has done it again - I got a real kick out of Tomahawk. My only quibble was the Lenslock security system that it's using. It's like something dreamt up by the MoD to protect official secrets, and I'm sure Tomahawk isn't that accurate!

A must for chopper champions and a strong contender for the rest of us, though simply applying collective and rising into the air doesn't quite compare with roaring down the runway.
