This is a game of tactical air combat in which players control one or more jet fighters in scenarios recreating the actual situations faced by American fighter pilots, in combat, from the earliest days of jet fighting in Korea through to the big air battles of the latter days of the Vietnam War. In this time frame, between 1950 and 1975, the speed and performance of jet fighters trebled and their armament underwent a number of significant evolutions. Initially, jet aircraft were armed with only guns and simple gunsights. However, jet fighters soon incorporated newly developed radars and rockets, then guided missiles, and finally, a mix of guns and missiles when it was discovered that guns were still a necessary and vital instrument of aerial warfare.
