Red Ace is an action oriented simulation set in WWI, more exactly France, Belgium and Africa. In the three campaigns with overall 25 missions the goal is mostly to kill all enemy aircraft. Sometimes this gets varied by additional ground targets, e.g. factories, which have to be destroyed. The game features four planes: Airco DH2, Sopwith Camel, Bristol Scout and Spad VIII; all with turrets, bombs and rockets as weaponry.
