A flight simulator based on the U.S. Navy's new carrier fighter super-hornet. The game puts you in command of a Hornet squadron in two possible campaign scenarios, one vs the Turks in the Aegean theater, and one vs Iran and Irak in the Persian Gulf. Before each flight CSF generates a set of missions for the entire squadron based on the current campaign status, and you may then proceed to plan and edit a selected mission on the mission planner. Once the mission ends, the results are tallied and the cycle begins again taking into account the new stats.

Available game modes include, in addition to the campaign mode: training flights, a quick-mission generator, randomly generated single missions, an instant action mode (and yes, those three are all different things) and multiplayer deathmatches.

Graphics are all 3D accelerated, and the game boasts terrain based on actual satellite projected images.
