    From the back of the box:

    Fly an F-16 Fighting Falcon, the most advanced tactical fighter aircraft in the world. Or put yourself at the controls of a carrier-based F-18 Hornet, the Navy's newest multi-role fighter. Jet lets you fly either of these fast, maneuverable machines.

    Your aircraft is equipped with a full-screen Heads Up Display for monitoring instruments and environment simultaneously. Free flight mode gets you started. Then you can select from a variety of land/sea strike or dogfight options to test your combat performance. Jet carries an internal M61 machine gun, and can be fitted with air-to-air missiles, AGM missiles, or bombs as required. Standard equipment also includes search radar, an automatic target tracking/sequencing computer, and fully functioning ejection seat.
