Trivia

Cancelled Amiga port

An Amiga version was partially developed, but according to Electronic Arts' Simon Jeffrey, they couldn't get it to run fast enough without compromising the action, so it was never completed.

Extras

The original package includes an "Eyes Only" briefing that outlines some sort of a leak of government LHX information, hackers who broke into defense contractor computers, an international arms dealer, Electronic Arts, a spy/peace activist, CIA, FBI, and assassination. Only at the very end was this disclaimer: "This is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental."

The original package also came with a "brochure" map that contained the different flyable locations.

LHX Program

The entire LHX (later, RAH-66 Comanche) program was cancelled by U.S. Congress in 2004, after almost 2 decades of development. Thus, we will never know how accurate this sim actually is.

V-22 Osprey

As of the year 2000, LHX is still the ONLY flight-sim that simulates the V-22 Osprey.
