Back of Box - Macintosh (US):
    Take the challenge as F/A-18 Hornet straps you in for the ride of your life. Each mission takes you deeper into the Middle-East conflict. Fly against the newest technology and the best trained pilots the enemies of freedom can produce. Keep constant vigilance with your AN/APG-65 radar system. Use your M61 Vulcan cannon or AIM9 Sidewinders for air-to-air combat. HARM, AGM-65 Maverick, and iron bombs give you the most effective air-to-ground ordinance available to any fighting force.


    Incredibly fast and fluid graphics provide an exceptional sense of motion. Atmospheric effects, like haze on distant mountains, amber sunsets, and stars at night, create uncanny realism.

    Accurate flight dynamics closely simulate the Navy's F/A-18 Hornet attack-fighter aircraft. Exceptionally detailed instrumentation is based on the real thing.

    Ordinance includes the heat-seeking AIM9 "Sidewinder," the active radar guided AGM-65 "Maverick," and a host of other mud-moving weaponry.

    Sophisticated enemy pilot artificial intelligence provides a constant challenge. They fly simulated aircraft just as you do. You must hone your pilot skills to survive.

    More Features

    Connect up to four computers via Appletalk network for multiple-player action.

    Radio voice messages from the ground and the air keep you constantly aware. The Landing Signal Officer (LSO) watches your carrier approach and remarks on your situation. Your wingman relays crucial battle information during aerial combat.

    Perform aircraft carrier "traps" just like Navy pilots. A working "meatball" system and an Instrument Landing System help you bring it home after a successful mission - contact the LSO and he'll talk you down.

    Incredible attention to detail clearly shows through in this award-winning simulation.
